DeNami Bloghop-Mini Cards

I am so excited to be a part of the DeNami Blog Hop this month!  If you are on track you should have come from Karen's blog.  If you got lost you can head back to the DeNami Blog.  And now on to the fun stuff!  I was first introduced to DeNami stamps a year ago at a craft show.  I asked Nami a million questions and she was so enthusiastic and helpful that I spent most of my time shopping at their booth!  After the show I went to the DeNami website and then the blog, the rest was history!  I didn't know that there was a whole online world with card challenges and blog hops and some of the most amazingly talented cardmakers out there!  Thanks to the designers at DeNami I have been inspired ever since!  Anyway, enough with the gushing, on to the card.  This little chickie was the first DeNami stamp I ever bought.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the heart background, a little bit of twine from The Twinery, some Stickles and voila!  I didn't stamp a sentiment because I thought I could use this card for a baby shower or a birthday card.  I love using little cards when my kids go to birthdays!  Stick it in a gift bag with the present and you're good to go!


This card is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  Because I use twine so often I wanted to try using notches to hold it into place.  I have never done this before.  I think I will be using this technique a lot!

I wanted to add a few Stickles to the flower and the dots to add a little sparkle.  In my opinion, you can never have enough bling!

Thanks for taking a look at my card.  Now you are off to the amazing Vera Wirianta Yate's blog.

  19. Those notches are the coolest. When I go through these hops I take note of cool things I want to try, and that is totally on my list. LOVE it. I also love your color choices. Just last night I started working on some breast cancer survivor cards using pink, black and white . . . am thinking of adding that notch to the mix! TFS! Beautiful work.
