May: Cards Blog Challenge ~ You're a Treasure!


Hi friends! There is a new May: Cards Blog Challenge up today and they have a terrific prize being offered from guess who...DeNami Design. But wait there's more...the DeNami Design team was asked to take part in the challenge! So I'm here today with my contribution.


When I saw the colors I immediately thought of a water theme ~ must have been the coral! I pulled several DeNami stamps together for my card. The teeny star background was stamped on the bottom of a white panel. I wanted to create a banner of sorts along the top of the card. The little anchors from the nautical: petit four stamp set were the perfect size to dangle from the banner. Next I stamped, colored and cut three circle scallops. As you can see I cut them in half then added a portion of the sailboat from the under the sea: petit four stamp set to one. I also stamped the sailboat onto the white panel, then added the circle scallop over it lining up the stamped images. All three scallops were affixed to the card with foam tape. The sailboat sails were stamped yet again on a scrap of MME paper, cut out then added to the card with foam tape. 


A length of coral grosgrain ribbon was tied to the panel before adhering it to a SU: calypso coral card base. Next up I stamped the medium round bowl and filled it with the tiny sunken chest and grasses from the under the sea: petit four stamp set. This was placed on die cut MME paper. My sentiment was added along with turquoise gems and tiny felt stars.


Isn't this a pretty color combo. Remember you have a chance to win a fun prize from DeNami Design if you link up your creation ~ how great is that!! Hurry over the the CREATE: blog to check out what my teammates have for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for stopping by today ~Lisa
