DeNami Mini Card Hop!! =)



Hello!!
How AWESOME is the DeNami Mini Card Blog Hop!!??  I know you are having a BLAST and getting LOADS of inspiration from all of the TALENTED LADIES!! You should have arrived here from  http://pawstoscrap.blogspot.com/
AMAZING BLOG!! =) If you ever get lost along the way you can go back to the DeNami Blog http://denami.blogspot.com/ to get back on track!!
I just had to make some Halloween Mini Cards for you today!!
All of the items that are in bold type can be found on thier on-line shop!! =)
Have you seen all of the FABULOUS STAMPS on the DeNami Site!!??
If not check these SPOOKS OUT!!
I have used E145 Friendly Ghost,  F208 Open Box, and D126 Friendly Bat for my first mini card!!
I wanted to make a tall and skinny mini card it measures 3 X 6. The base is actually a left over card stock piece from a Little Yellow Bicycle envelope album kit and it made the perfect base for my mini card.  I layered two ghost stamped images together with foam tape in between for dimension. I then stamped the open box stamp and colored it in using watercolor pencils. I stamped the A92 Teeny Star stamp in yellow staz-on to decorate the box. I added it to the bottom of the card. Then I stamped three Friendly bat images and used watercolor pencils to color them as well. I added them around the card and glued down only the bodies of the bats so I could pop up the wings to make them look like they are flying. Here are some pictures!!



The second card I made came about because I LOVED the New A102 Candy Corn stamp. I wanted to come up with a fun way to use it and then it hit me!! I wanted to make a candy corn wreath!! So I stamped the M52 Leafy Vine Wreath and then I colored it with watercolor pencils. I then used CL01 Crystal Lacquer and filled in all of the leaves while it was still wet I sprinkled it with the
SS09 Lime Sherbet Glitter then I went over the swirls with the crystal lacquer and then while it was still wet I covered it with the SS16 Citrone Glitter and it gave it this AWESOME two toned look!! Then I sat it aside to dry. I then stamped the A102 Candy Corn 13 times and colored them all with watercolor pencils them I added the crystal lacquer to them and sat them aside to dry. I then used the
MV-05 Marvy 3" Scallop Circle Punch and punched out the wreath. I used the Martha Stewart pinking any where punch for the center of the wreath. Then I added the candy corn pieces on top of the wreath using foam tape for dimension to add interest. I tied a burlap string in a bow and added it to the side of the wreath. Then I stamped F206 Happy Halloween on to a sticker from Little Yellow Bicycle that said This Candy Belongs to and it added the perfect title for my mini card!! I sure hope you LOVED the Mini Cards that I have shared today and hope you have fun on the rest of the DeNami Mini Card Blog Hop!! Your Next stop is   http://www.ruby2shoesdesign.blogspot.com/  
Here are some pics of my final Mini Card that measures 31/2 X 41/2.
Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)
