Howdy-hi, my friends! Today the DeNami Design Team is spotlighting a terrific stamp from the latest DeNami release. Introducing: the Berry Vine!
I paired it with the beautifully scripted Brushed Thank You stamp to create an elegant thank you note, suitable for any time of year. I stamped the thank you and vines in Versafine inks (oynx and red satin), and heat embossed both with clear embossing powder from DeNami. The berries were colored in with a red Sakura Stardust pen. I gave the background some subtle detail by stamping some tone-on-tone dots with the Polka Dot Background on some gorgeous DeNami Red cardstock.

OK, I know that some of you may be surprised by the top note "die cut" on my card today. Those of you who know me know that I don't "do" die cuts, having no Big Shot/Cuttlebug/whatever machine. So, what's that thing doing on my card, and how did it come to be? Well, my dear friend Colleen sent me a fabulous collection of SU scraps that she picked up from her SU demo and amongst them was a lovely top note die cut. Notice how I called it my "die cut" earlier? That's because I used my actual top note die cut as a template: tracing it with a pencil, trimming it out by hand, and adding the stitch marks with a pen. Yup, I'm that low-tech ;). But it tickles me that I can have the high-end look of a fancy die cut for the low price of a pencil and pair of scissors.
That's my little slice of bliss for today, friends. Thanks so much for dropping by!!
PS This week's CASology cue card is THANKS. I'm playing along! I'm also joining in the fun over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge, where the theme this week is Thanksgiving/Thank You, and Papercraft Star, where the new theme is "thank you."
