DeNami Design September Blog Hop: KRAZY FOR KRAFT!

You should have hopped here from talented Jennifer's Blog.  If you are lost and need to start from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's Blog.

Ahhhh!  My life has been sooooo busy!  I'm barely getting time to craft each month for the blog hops, but I wouldn't miss 'em for the world!  My kraft card was inspired by another card I made recently.  For last month's blog hop, I used one of my favorite new images, the Ornate Flourish.  It's so versatile and elegant.  For my boyfriend's birthday last month, I also made a card using that stamp as a background along with the new Elegant Word Plate.  He also LOVES coffee (especially Starbucks), so I had to add some coffee cups to the background.  Oh, and his favorite colors are orange and purple.  So, here is what I made for him.   

(By the way, he loved the card!  Yay!)

I loved the way that card turned out so much that I used that as a template for my Kraft card.  I used the same stamps, but used the white (picket fence) Distress Stain to stamp onto the Kraft, and then I added Stardust Stickles to give it an elegant icy look.  (I wish you could really see how sparkly this is, but I couldn't get a good angle with my camera.)  Of course, I just HAD to add some ribbons!  I used 2 different grosgrain ribbons, and then who doesn't love some rhinestone ribbon, eh?

This card really sparkles and POPS in person.  I love my bling!

Next stop on the hop is the lovely Ruza's blog.  She is such a sweetheart and soooooo creative! I'm sure she's done WONDERS with kraft!

Happy Stamping!
