It has been several months since I've participated in a DeNami Design Blog Hop, and I am THRILLED to be back! Feel free to scroll down to previous postings on my blog if you want to learn about my life and what I've been up to this year, but I'd like to just dive into the reason for this post.
You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog: Jen & Paper. I am so impressed with her. She is incredibly talented, and she seems so sweet, too! If you want to start hopping from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.
I must take the time to comment on DeNami's newest releases, though. Seriously, how cute are they? I squealed with delight when I saw them! SO CUTE! SO ELEGANT! SO WONDERFUL! Let's get back to the task at hand, though: the Back to School Blog Hop!
Now, my card may seem a little unconventional for this theme, but when I heard "Back to School," it made me think of Harry Potter and Hogwarts. How do they get back to school? On the Hogwarts Express train, of course! Now, my card doesn't have a Harry Potter theme to it, but it was that image that inspired my project. So, I am thrilled to present this card using the new Chickie Train stamp! I made the train longer by stamping the full image once and then only inking up part of the image two more times. (Side note: while I miss the aesthetic of the wood block stamps, the new cling stamps really are easier to line up, and they are so much more portable!)
Here is a close-up, so you can really see the glitter!
Unfortunately, the colors didn't photograph as well as I would have liked. The orange is actually more peachy in person, but you get the idea. Plus, I used some patterned paper this time! Often, I will just stamp my own background, but I decided to use some of this cool paper by Bo Bunny.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Please leave a comment below, and make sure to leave a comment on all the blogs for a chance to win a fabulous gift certificate to DeNami Design's website!
Next stop on the hop is Pattie's blog: Paper Silhouettes. I can't wait to see what she creates this time because she always impresses with her use of colors and gorgeous layouts!
Thanks again for hopping along!
