DeNami Design's May Blog Hop: FRESH FLORALS!



One of the things I love so much about DeNami Design stamps is how versatile they are!  They've got such fun and adorable stamps, but they also have many that are just downright GORGEOUS.  Their floral images are stunning and elegant!  So, this blog hop theme THRILLS me because it is all about highlighting their fabulous floral images!  YAY!

You should have arrived here from Greta's Blog!  Isn't she awesome?  Her creations are always fantastic!

If you are lost or just want to start the blog hop from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's Blog.

Now, on to my card!   YAY!   My favorite colors in the universe are green and blue, and I just felt like rocking out those colors.   Plus, I LOOOOOOOVE patterned backgrounds.  I'm obsessed with houndstooth, so you can imagine how much I freaked out when I saw that DeNami Design now has a Houndstooth Background stamp.  LOVE IT!  Then, I used this Water Lily stamp to create some blossoms.  I stamped the water lily several times onto white cardstock, colored them all with Copic markers, fussy cut them out, and layered them to create these full blossoms.  I thought I would finish them off with a pearl center and glitter pen outlined petals.

I also used the Decorative Flourish stamp to add some more flair behind the blossoms.  You can see it better in the close-up (and you can see how much the glitter pen adds to the card).  

Side note, if you don't already own this Decorative Flourish stamp, what are you waiting for?!  It is one of my faves!  It creates a perfect, stunning, elegant background every time.  It's great paired with embellishments like glitter, rhinestones, pearls, and even sequins (Paulina, I'm looking at you!  You're the QUEEN of Sequins!  I can only imagine how fabulous sequins could be with this stamp!!). 

I choose to use the "Just a note" sentiment from the All Occasions Trifle Stamp Set, but you could use pretty much ANY sentiment with this card.

Next stop on the blog hop is Emily's blog.  I can't wait to see what she's made for us today!  She is a true talent!  Cute, elegant, adorable, sophisticated...she can do it all!
