DeNami Product Spotlight: Small Jack O' Lantern

Today the DeNami Design Team is doing a Product Spotlight on an adorable DeNami Halloween stamp: the Small Jack O' Lantern!

Totally CUTE, right? I must warn you, though, working with this fun little guy is habit forming. I couldn't make just one card!

After the first, I was hooked and just had to make two more!
And even then I couldn't stop! I had to decorate coordinating envelopes (all #6 3/4 size correspondence envelopes, perfect for fitting the 6" x 3.5" cards.), letting me play along with the Young Crafters Unite challenge to make a card with a matching envelope.
All seven of these sweet pumpkin faces were watercolored (so fun!). And did you spot the baker's twine grass? I picked up that clever little technique from the talented Shelly Schmidt, who has a wonderful tutorial HERE.

I can't believe that this is the last week of September, can you? And with this post, my time as September Guest Designer for DeNami Design comes to a close. Boo hoo!! I've had a blast designing along with the talented DeNami team this month. A huge THANK YOU goes to everyone at DeNami for this fantastic opportunity. I've enjoyed every minute of it!!

Be sure to check out today's post on the DeNami blog for lots, lots, lots more inspiration for this week's featured Small Jack O' Lantern !! And as the DeNami Spotlight product, this sweet little pumpkin face is on sale at 10% off for the next week. Bonus!! You can add him to your DeNami shopping cart right here.

Thanks for stopping by!
