DeNami Summer Splash Blog Hop!


Welcome to the next link in the DeNami Summer Splash Blog Hop!


If you're following along, you should have come from Paulina's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning, go to the DeNami Designs blog.

This card was made using only two stamps: Small Daisy Blossom and the Thank you from the Assorted Greetings stamp set.

I stamped the flowers and filled in their centres and then cut a window for the sentiment. I used Copic markers in a summery colour combination to create the background. I popped the sentiment circle (same size as the window) up on 3 layers of black cardstock, to create a subtle frame and then added some sparkle with Stickles on the daisies and the border of the sentiment circle.

Now, there are prizes involved in this blog hop! How to win, you ask?

You have until July 15, 2013, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs to be eligible to win one of two $20 gift certificates to the DeNami website.

Good luck! The next blog in the blog hop is Lisa!

ETA - after a number of comments (thank you!) talking about my polka-dot background, I've decided to link this up to CASual Friday's Polka Dot challenge as well. Sometimes, I'm not as bright as I look! lol!

Such a fun, summery card, Ardyth. Lots of work on that dotted background! I know it's just dots, but planning where they go/the colour distribution took some thinking! A very fun Denami hop!

I think you ARE as bright as you look, but I gotta say it: You must be dotty!! I canNOT believe that you sat there and applied all those dots and didn't screw that up in all those different colors! You are a machine! Or a magician or a robot or ... WOW. Your talent is unreal, Ardy!! Just incredible!!

Seriously...you hand dotted the entire card...girl, it's time to seek professional help!

Gorgeous colored dots that make the daisies pop right off the page! Nice clean and simple sentiment doesn't steal the show from the flowers or the dots!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

WOWZA! So bright and fresh and awesome! Thanks for playing with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

Kelly Griglione said...

Were there any other name under this thumbnail entry I would assume the card has patterned paper on it. But, thanks to the "Ardyth" warning below, I knew full well that you made all those dots by hand before scrolling down even once. Truly wonderful! So glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Jingle said...

Oh, I love the brightly colored dot happiness! So cute! Thanks so much for joining us over at CAS-ual Fridays!
