DeNami Christmas Blog Hop

                                                  Welcome to the DeNami Christmas Blog Hop!

Thanks for joining us today!  You probably hopped here from Lori's blog!  If not and you would like to start at the beginning of the hop just go to the DeNami blog HERE! So glad you came by today!  I have a Holiday card to share!  It was such a fun card to make!  I just love Christmas time and all the goodies that paper crafters can make for this time of year!  I am sure you will find lots of holiday inspiration today!!

I stamped the background stamp first in Burnt Umber.  Then I added this fantastic DeNami snowflake in Versamark!  Next, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder!  To finish off the base of this card, I took some Tim Holtz Tea Dye and Fired Brick Distress Ink and added in some distressing!  (A Jennifer McGuire learned technique!)

The "Happy Holidays" is also a DeNami stamp!  I just love that font!

  63. Hi. This card is simply beautiful. I would love to use my supplies to make a similar card, however, I have a question!?! I don't do much embossing so excuse my ignorance ... but ... if you stamp the snowflakes in versamark (that's clear, right?), and you use clear embossing powder, how do they end up white?!?

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is stunning!!! I really want to try this now - so inspiring. Love your blog! Have a great day!
