DeNami Design's January Blog Hop: WONDERFUL WASHI


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and I'm thrilled to be a part of DeNami Design's first blog hop of 2013!

Before I go any further, have you SEEN the new release stamps?!  SO CUTE!  Check them out and order yours HERE.

You should have arrived from Kanani's blog.  She is so fantastic!  Can't wait to see what she's made for today!  If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.

Now, here's my creation.  I LOVE this theme, and I have a confession.  I've bought washi tape, and I just haven't gotten around to using it, so this blog hop forced me to dive right in, and I'm SO GLAD!  I bought some adorable film strip washi tape a few months ago, and here's what I came up with for today:


Here's a close-up of some of the details:


I stamped the chickie face from the Animal Faces petit four set inside every other film square, and then I colored them in with Copic markers.  I also stamped the word "Smile" from the Heartfelt Greetings petit four set.  Of course, I had to add some sort of ribbon-like detail, so I created the rolling wave of film strip, accented by some Diamond Wrap I found last year at The Container Store.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and I hope you'll leave a comment and hop along to the others.  Leaving comments gives you chance to win fabulous gift certificates from DeNami Design. I know that I am keeping my fingers crossed for one because my wishlist of new stamps needs addressing!  The next stop on the blog hop is Greta's blog.  She creates STUNNING and elegant cards, so I am really looking forward to seeing what she made.  Let's go check it out!

Happy Hopping!
Amy

Oh my gosh . . . the creative part of my brain may have just exploded a bit! This is AMAZING! I am studying this one . . . it is absolutely phenomenal. From the diagonal approach . . . to the chickie faces . . . to the "Smile" message (how can you not smile looking at this) to the film roll down the side. OMG! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this.
