DeNami Challenge!

Welcome to the DeNami Theme Challenge!  This is really a fun theme for me!  My oldest is a girl so I find myself making girly things most of the time!  Now with my 2 year old I can start making more boy stuff!  So that is just what I did with this Boy Theme!


He is only 2 so I know he won't appreciate these just yet, but I love them!  I made little little place cards for his birthday party!

These are SO easy to make!  First off you need one, 12x12 piece of navy blue cardstock!  You can make 9, 4x4 cards with one piece and no waste!  Then just score each 4x4 at 2 inches!  9 easy bases and then you can decorate them however you want! 

For these cards,  I took DeNami's polka dot background stamp, and just stamped it repeatedly in 2 different colors of blue ink to give that watery look!  Then I used a scalloped border die and used the negative for the waves!  I stamped the little boat from the Under the Sea Petit Four and colored them with Copics, cut them out and put them up on foam tape for that added dimension!  I used the computer to print out the names and then added the anchor from the Nautical Petit Four set!  Super easy and so cute!

Don't forget to stop by the DeNami blog to play along with this challenge!  And you can find more inspiration there from the rest of the DeNami DT!

Thanks for stopping today!  Have a great Monday!
