DeNami Design's August Blog Hop: MINI CARDS!

Happy Blog Hop Day!

You hopefully arrived here from Amber Daigre's blog: Damask Love. Seriously, how amazing is she? Her blog is phenomenal, and I am constantly in awe of her genius creations. If you're lost and/or want to start from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.

I was so excited by DeNami's July stamp releases. They have so many fabulous new images, and they inspired me instantly! This mini card (measuring approx. 2.5" x 4") was one of the ideas that I originally had. When I first saw that parachute chickie, I knew I HAD to paper piece that parachute! Plus, I wanted to paper piece the open box, too, giving the flaps added dimension. So, here's the result:

Here's a close-up of the paper pieced parachute:

This angle really allows you to see the dimension of the box flaps:

I also was inspired to make a 2nd card using more new release stamps. I wanted to make an ornament mini-card that you could send to someone, use as a gift tag, or use it as a decorative Christmas ornament.

This is the inside of the card:

Here's a close-up of the wire detail I created to make it look like a real ornament:

Thanks so much for reading my blog!
