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!

Make sure to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win a DeNami Design gift certificate!

Happy Stamping!

I'm swooning over the orange and purple one Amy. Just fan-tab-ulous, and of course he loved it! It came from you!
And the bling and gems and sparkle of the second is out of this world! White on kraft is always such a showstopper and you nailed this one:)

How cute your bf loves orange and purple - those colors rock. I like how you added the coffe cups to the background. And the blue and kraft card is lovely too.

Lezerlie said...

I like both of your cards. I think I have that background flurish...or one similar! I also love the white on kraft look (and the orange for that matter). Fantastic job!

Excellent hop! Thanks for the inspiration. I enjoyed the techniques on your kraft project. I recently stamped with Distress Stain in a class. It's fun. I've created a project for this hop as well, hope you stop by and leave a comment as well. Take care.

I love the combination of orange and purple and loved your boyfriend's card! The blue on the second really pops thanks to the use of kraft paper and that works well. Thanks for sharing your adorable project.
