DeNami Design's October Blog Hop: FALL

I am super excited about today's blog hop! I love DeNami Design and fall is my favorite time of year! What a wonderful combination!




If you're following the hop, you should have just arrived from Nicki Scheck's blog. Isn't she amazingly talented? WOW!




If you've gotten lost or need to start from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.




Now let's move right on to my project. I just adore the new DeNami Cornucopia stamp, and I also love plaid, so I created my own background pattern using the Three Line Border and Stitched Border stamps. I also love to color in the cornucopia, but for this card, I felt it would be better to just add a little glitter pen action and leave the focal point clean and simple. So, here's my card:








Also, since it's October, I had to add a fun Halloween card. I stamped the ghosts on vellum. When you stamp on vellum, you can easily reverse stamps because the ink is seen through the vellum. So, I stamped the ghost twice, cut them out, and then drew over the lines using a white gel pen. How cute are they?






Here's a close-up of one of the vellum ghosts:



I also wanted to add a splash of color and a friendly little spider to the inside of the card:





Next stop on the blog hop is Karen Larkin's blog. She creates beautiful cards! I can't wait to see what she's made for today!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have fun with the hop! Happy Stamping!

I adore that plaid background - once again I may be "borrowing" from you....

And did ya know....for that little ghostie idea - you can just use white puffy embossing powder then you don't have to fool with a pen? What? You already knew that? Somehow I knew you would :)

Oh my word, that stamped background on the first card is crazy amazing! I love the colors and the Stitched Border with the Three Line Border looks spectacular! I'm definitely going to have to give that a try! Love that spring circle you created- looks great with the Cornucopia stamp!

That second card is awesome too, Amy! It definitely "screams" Halloween! :)

Dana said...

Amy I need to come visit you and play with your toys! You always make me see them in a new light! Such a creative use of BG stamps to make that plaid...and flipping the ghost because he's stamped on vellum? GENIUS! You are my new muse.

Rae Ann said...
