DeNami Sneak Peeks: CHICKIES

Welcome to Day 2 of the DeNami Design Spring/Summer Release Sneak Peeks!! Today DT Member Tammy Hobbs and I are giving you sneak peeks of brand-new DeNami stamps about to be released in the always-fun CHICKIES category! Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post for details on a great giveaway :D.



If you are a DeNami chickie lover, you will positively swoon over the chick-tastic new release! There are new chickies for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and some fun new chickies for spring and summer. I had SO much fun with my new chickie stamps getting ready for this release! It was hard to decide where to start. Well, let's dive right in, shall we?


Valentine's Day



That adorable Cupid Chickie stamp is brand-new, but that's not the only new stamp I used on this card. You can also drool over the new Love Flourish stamp, the Houndstooth Background stamp, and the Elegant Oval Frame stamp.  Aren't these awesome? I also used some petal pink card stock from DeNami Design,  Satin Red ink, and some red baker's twine from the DeNami Design store as well.

St. Patrick's Day


I don't know what you look for in the pot at the end of the rainbow on St. Patrick's Day, but I am only too happy to find chocolate in that pot ;-). My next project is a little St. Patrick's Day goodie bag. I started with a clear gusseted bag from the DeNami Design store and filled it with green wrapped chocolates. After tying the bag shut with some emerald grosgrain ribbon from DeNami Design, I tied on a Leprechaun chickie "for you" tag with more baker's twine. The chickie comes from the new Shamrock Chickies stamp which is a large scene; I just clipped out the single chickie that I wanted for my small tag. Doesn't he look sweet surrounded by the For You Circle stamp and the Medium Dot Circle stamp? I also used DeNami Design's desert orange card stock and iridescent emerald green card stock, along with Habanero ink and Olympia Green ink.


And what if you would rather give a card for St. Patrick's Day instead? Well, I've got that covered too. ;-)


This is a small card, only 3.25" x 4.25". I clipped another leprechaun chickie from the new Shamrock Chickies stamp to layer over a shamrock that I created using the new Solid Flower Accents cling set. That sweet sentiment also comes from the new Shamrock Chickie stamp; I just masked it out to create a banner.

Sweet, Fruity Summer

We write a lot of notes and letters at my house, so I like to have some stationery on hand and as well as note cards. For my last project I made a stationery set featuring the brand new Fruit Chickies stamp set. So perfect for a fruity summer!


I simply cut 8.5" x 11" sheets of printer paper in half to make the sheets of stationery.


That "Thanks chickie" sentiment is another new stamp in this release.



To contain and protect all of my new sheets of stationery, I decorated a 6" x 9" manila envelope. I stamped a background using that adorable pineapple chickie and the orange slice stamp from DeNami Design's Tropical Fruit stamp set. The circle frame stamps are also from DeNami Design, as well as the emerald grosgrain ribbon.

OK, are you still with me? Thanks for hanging in there through this long post. :-) I mentioned a giveaway way back at the beginning of this post. DeNami Design is giving away multiple gift certificates today. Be sure to leave a comment here on my blog post and on Tammy's chickie sneak peek blog post, too. Then head over to the DeNami design blog to find out the other ways you can win today!


I'm so glad that you dropped in to check out some of the new chickie stamps in the DeNami Design Spring/Summer Release! Be sure to tune into the DeNami blog tomorrow for more sneak peeks and giveaways.

Until then, have a day filled with bliss, 
Emily

These are all so fun & sweet! The cupid chick (swoon...I'm in love with him!) and the shamrock cuties are awesome - but the fruit stationery has stolen my heart :) Love that you've decorated where you'll keep it - and LOVE those sheets!!!!

Benzi said...

Ooh, Emily, great projects. I have to say the first one caused me to want to get out my list of 'wants' and go for everything on that card. The chickie image is adorable and I love the sentiment and the HOUNDSTOOTH. Wow!

That houndstooth is making me want the hours to pass quickly so we can get to the Alabama vs Notre Dame game for the National Championship tonight. Go Bama! Yes, that has something to do with houndstooth. LOL

Super work on each card and project, Emily. Though, I'm not going to let you tempt me with that chocolate. KWIM? HEE
