DeNami Design and Lawn Fawn Blog Hop


How fun is this right?  2 amazing companies teaming up today! The DT's are here today to bring you a little of both companies all on one card!  I have been so lucky to design for DeNami since January of this year and have been one happy customer of Lawn Fawn stamps for quite awhile!  So this is a fun assignment...bringing you both at one time!

I have several cards to share with you and then you must check out the rest of the DT's samples!  I know there is going to be lots of eye candy today and tomorrow too!

  If you started from the Lawn Fawn blog, then you have hopped here from the amazingly talented, Lynette Kaufman's blog!  If you want to check out the whole list, you can start back HERE.  Here are my cards for today's hop...

This card combines DeNami's Small Daisy Blossom and Lawn Fawn's Sew Lovely.  A super easy and CAS card!

This next card is in honor of my friend Amy!  She LOVES pinwheels! Every time I see them I think of her!  SO, I had to make my own!  This card uses  several little DeNami stamps, including the Elegant Floral Petit Four to make my own patterned paper!  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Admit One.  I took an ink pad to the other side of the paper to give it that double sided look.  Wanna know how super easy it is?  All you do is cut any size of square you want and then cut 4 diagonal cuts, just like this....
Then you just take one corner from each side of the square and attach it to the middle of the square with a brad!  Super easy!  And the fun thing about this DIY way to make a pinwheel is you can make it in any size you want depending on the size of your square.

Ok, on to my last card...

This last card card uses DeNami's Three Line Border Stamp and Hello Friend sentiment.  From Lawn Fawn, I used Sew Lovely.

The next stop on the hop is Latisha Yoast!  I am sure she has something gorgeous up her sleeve!  Now don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop today.  There will be a winner chosen today and again from the 2nd round of blog hopping that starts tomorrow!  Check out these prizes....


Thank you so much for stopping today!  Have a great Thursday!
