DeNami Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Sunday! Hope you’re enjoying your journey through all of the festive creations on DeNami Design’s Birthday Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Rae Ann‘s blog, but if you lost your way somehow, you can always click back to the DeNami blog for the full list of participants!

My card is made with stamps that maybe aren’t considered “birthday” themed, but they make a cute scene for a birthday card when they’re all together! I like finding new ways of using the stamps that I have for different types of cards and projects! It helps me to keep thinking creatively, too!

Supplies: DeNami sentiment stamp (Happy Birthday Script – Cling), DeNami image stamps (Doghouse, Doggie Bone,  Paw Print, Cuddly Pals set – dog, Mini Heart), kraft cardstock, white cardstock, light brown ink (you can also use watermark ink), Tsukineko Brilliance black ink, twine, brads, Copic markers.
To layer the images in the scene, I stamped the dog on a piece of white card stock, and one of the hearts. Then I stamped the dog and two hearts on the sticky part of a Post-It note. Then I cut out the images and layered them over the images I stamped on the white card stock. 
With the masks in place, I stamped the doghouse so that when the masks are removed, the doghouse appears to be behind the dog and the balloons. (If you get a little nervous about layering the balloons, another option would be to stamp them, cut them out and layer them in a group.)
I stamped the bone separately, intending to use it as an accent, but decided it would work popped up slightly on the scene. I drew in the balloon strings and colored the image.
Hope I’ve inspired you to create something new! Don’t forget to leave comments on all of the participants’ blogs for a chance to win ONE of TWO $20 gift certificates to DeNami Design’s web store! You have until March 12, 2012 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time to leave your comments!

    I have a friend who is an avid dog lover, so a card like this would be perfect for her (or for anyone who has birthday parties for their dog)! Gorgeous color combo and the paw print background adds a lovely whimsical touch. Love it!
