DeNami Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the DeNami Design Birthday Blog Hop! Today the DeNami Design DT and customers alike are sharing birthday creations made with DeNami stamps.
Hopefully, you've arrived here by way of Wendy Harrill's blog, Confessions of a DeNami Addict. If so, you are on the right track! If not, you'll want to head over to the DeNami blog to start the blog hop at the beginning. (And remember, if you get lost along the way, you can always head over to the DeNami blog to get pointed in the right direction.)

Remember, there are DeNami prizes to be won! Two lucky duckies will be drawn at random from among the comments left along the blog hop to win a $20 DeNami Design gift certificate! You have until Monday, March 12, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs to be eligible for a prize.

OK, who's ready to {birthday} party? Let's get started!!

Have you seen the huge variety of stamps in DeNami's birthday category? If not, you should definitely check it out. All I can say is "WOW!" And the latest stamp release added some more fabulous birthday stamps in cling form, so those are the ones I wanted to show off with my projects for today's birthday hop. I couldn't decide which direction to take, so I ended up making two different birthday projects to share. My first is a birthday party favor packed with my favorite kind of treat, chocolate!

This project features not only some of the new DeNami cling stamps (Cupcake Chickie and Birthday Celebration 1 set) but also a new cellophane bag that's perfect for treats: the Clear Gusseted Bag, sold in packs of 10 with the steal-of-the-day price of $2.50. I also used the Polka Dot Background stamp, Petal Pink cardstock, and Vintage Sepia Versafine ink from the DeNami store.

Wanna know my secret for getting those yummy little truffles to line up so perfectly? Just stick them down on the stamped cardstock backing sheet with a bit of strong two-sided adhesive (like ScorTape). :D

My second project is a birthday gift tag using the same stamps as those for my party favor:

I'm also showing off a bit of the new baker's twine from The Twinery that's being carried in the DeNami store now! This bit of pink/white twine comes from the Pastel Twine 3-pack, so perfect for spring and Easter projects!

Well, I'm sure you are just chomping at the bit to head off and collect more fabulous DeNami inspiration for birthday projects. Before you leave, be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for the randomly drawn prizes and then you can be on your way to the next stop on the hop: Pam Wendt's blog, Handwerk by Pamela.

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my happy birthday creations!

Oh what a cute idea for the party favors. You could use this idea for just about any occasion with a different chick stamp. Love it. I really like your tag too. I always love making a tag for a bag, since I buy colored bags and decorate them. This one is adorable. tfs Tami
