DeNami Design - Bright, Bold and Beautiful Blog Hop





Good morning! 

This is another first for me - I'm participating in DeNami Design's Bright, Bold & Beautiful Blog Hop! There is quite a large group of us participating and we hope that you are inspired by our fun DeNami Design creations. 

PLUS you have the chance to WIN a mini shopping spree for DeNami Design products! Two $20 gift certificates will be awarded to people who comment along the hop!  You have until August 13, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize). 

If you're following along the whole blog hop, you should have come from Linda Carpenter.
If you want to start at the beginning (or if you got lost along the way), start here, at the DeNami Design blog.

I love this little face stamp, part of this set - positioning him differently on each dot gives a different, goofy look. The overall effect is a big group of guys having fun - I also think it almost has a 3D look! I also like the 'random' empty spaces - I just made sure I left two empty spots on each row, not worrying about whether they ended up being together. This card reminds me of a video game - in fact it was inspired by a t-shirt worn by a boy I saw on the subway this week.





For this second card, I couldn't resist going really bright and really bold - I used my new Neon ink and cardstock to really pack a punch of colour on this otherwise silvery card, using this stamp.

Next, onto Deanna Dean's  blog for some more DeNami goodness!  


Enjoy!

Your smiley card is so cute, made me smile when I saw it. I like the glitter around the edge of the birthday card, adds a little "bling" to it.

Two gorgeous cards, Ardyth. The one with the faces is really cool, would suit any young person, and offsetting some of the faces gives it real character.
