Blue Skies Thinking of You

Today I have a high-flying "thinking of you" card to share.


This clean and simple card features the super-fun Fly A Kite stamp from DeNami Design. Today the entire DeNami design team is sharing creations made with this stamp to give you some great ideas for using it as part of this week's product spotlight. For the next week, you can snag a 10% discount on Fly A Kite just by dropping it into your shopping cart!
I chose to paper piece the kite's body with some bold Red DeNami cardstock, but it would be a ton of fun to color with your favorite method, too. I colored in the kite's tails with a red glitter pen, which worked beautifully, even on the shimmer surface of the Iridescent Blue Ice cardstock I used as my background. I thought DeNami's Small Cloud stamp paired perfectly with this fun kite, and the cling-style Thinking of You Script sentiment was just what I needed to finish off my design.

I hope you'll take a peek at what the rest of the team cooked up with this week's spotlight stamp over on the DeNami Design blog. I love seeing everyone's different take on the same stamp!

Thanks for dropping by!
Emily

Your card is beautiful Emily!!! I love the simplicity of the red kite and puffy clouds against the blue. And the little details, like the scalloped border and shimmer, and as always your perfect stitching, are just perfect!
