DeNami Design May Blog Hop - Fresh Florals!


Hi there! It's time for the May DeNami Design Blog Hop today and I hope you'll join us for some fun! This month's theme is Fresh Florals! If you made it here from Emily Keaton's Blog , then you are on the right track! If you need to start at the beginning or want to see a list of the hoppers, please go to the DeNami Design Blog.

 The blog hop starts on May 19th, but you have until May 20th, 2012, at 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize). DeNami Designs is giving away $20 gift certificates to their store to TWO people who comment along the hop! So don't forget to leave some love along the way! Here's what I made for the hop...



One of the things I like to do every once in a while, is use a stamp in a different way. This time, I took the Hydrangea Border and used just the flower clusters! I colored them with Copics, added a little sparkle with my Gelly Roll pen and cut out each cluster and popped them up on pop dots for some dimension. There's lots of dimension underneath too...the layer under the flowers is popped up and I used the Small Swirl Corner stamp as a sort of 'vase' to give the flowers some grounding and keep my diamond shape consistent instead of having them just floating!

I added a vine border around my diamond with a Memory Box die and stamped my sentiment... from All Occasion Sentiments  set. A couple of pearls and it's done!

Your next stop is Lisa Petrella's Blog and I'm sure there's something special to see over there! Have a great time hopping today!
