Happy St. Patrick's Day

This week is St. Patrick's Theme Week on the DeNami blog, and we are featuring DeNami's delightful Happy St. Patrick's Day sentiment stamp in our Product Spotlight this week.

I made a simple shamrock for my card by paperpiecing the versatile Small Heart Outline three times and stitching a little stem with some embroidery floss. And my sweet dotted panel? Created by stamping the Polka Dot Background in Versamark ink on Leaf Green cardstock, border-punched along the bottom edge with the EK Success Dotted Scallop punch. Additional items from the DeNami store used in my card: Iridescent Emerald Green cardstock, White cardstock, and my go-to Onyx Black Versafine ink.

DeNami has an adorable collection of St. Patrick's Day stamps--go check them out HERE! Because the Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp is our Product Spotlight this week--BONUS!!--it's on sale. But only for a short time ;).

Be sure to check out all of the fun St. Patrick's Day inspiration on today's Product Spotlight post on the DeNami blog! I can't wait to see what the rest of the design team cooked up, so I'm heading there next.

Thanks for stopping by!
Emily
