DeNami September Blog Hop ~ Howdy!


Welcome! Yep you're in the right place, I just gave myself a sweet little blog make-over!! Can you believe September is upon us? A new month means a new blog hop with DeNami Design. Another chance for you to win one of two DeNami gift certificates! The design team and DeNami friends have come together today to share projects focusing on this month's theme of {Krazy for Kraft}. You should be arriving here from Donna's blog.  If you would like to start at the beginning or lose your way, the entire list of participants is on the DeNami blog. Now for my contribution...

I knew right way I wanted to use the new camping chickie in my design. He's so cute peeking out of his little pup tent! Woodsy and rustic, perfect for the kraft challenge! I popped up a portion of the tent with foam tape. Before adding the tape, I crinkled up the stamped piece to give it a more rustic worn look.



Edit: This card was chosen for publication in the May 2014 edition of Create:Stamping!
 
I parked my little fella in the great outdoors under a starry night. Perhaps he's on a cattle drive, maybe he's made the trip to the bottom of the grand canyon, he could be a scout going for his wilderness badge, or you never know he might be on the lamb from the law ~ HA!! You decide or come up with a story of your own!! 

 

I've used stamps from two petit four sets to create my scene. The cactus from this one along with the sentiment from this one. See those little "rocks" I added at the base of the cacti? They were made by masking off part of my fave polka dot decorative butterfly!!! 



And speaking of polka dots, I just couldn't resist adding a polka dot moon! This one was made with the polka dot circle and a one inch punch! To give my card a bit of pop I swiped white ink across my dry embossed stars and edged the  stamped panel with it as well. This panel is also raised with foam tape.



Now off you go to the next stop on the hop. And that would be the lovely Jennifer! Thanks for visiting today. Be sure to check out the details on the hop that I've listed below! ~Lisa

This card has the monopoly on cuteness today. I love all of the embossing and the tent but if that little bird didn't make you have an audible "awwwwwwe", then your eyeballs aren't working! Loved it. Made me think of singing a lullaby. This would be a great card for a baby shower!
