Anything but a card...


That is the theme of today's DeNami blog hop!  I needed to make an ornament for a friend, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity!  If you are following along with the hop, you just came from Suzanne's blog! If you'd like to start from the beginning, just click HERE to take you to the full list of participants!  Don't forget to leave comments along the way!  DeNami has some fun prizes for you!  

So here is my project.  My friend asked for a gray or a silver ornament with a touch of red and most important, white snowflakes!  I knew I had the perfect snowflake stamp for this one!  (Go check it out...looks like it's on sale!  Just sayin...)

So I stamped on the chipboard ornament with Versamark and then heat embossed using Zing powder.  I added a ribbon loop and a bow and then some glittery snowballs for a little something extra.  After I was finished, I sprayed the whole thing with Smooches glitter spray.  IRL it looks so fun!  

So that is it for me today.  Your next stop is Lani's blog!  I can't wait to see what everyone has cooked up for today! 

Here are some details straight from DeNami:

When: The blog hop starts on November 13 at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until November 14, 2011, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why: To be inspired by non-card items featuring DeNami Design stamps!
