DeNami Design Polka Dots Blog Hop

Welcome to the February DeNami Design Blog Hop! This month's hop is all about POLKA DOTS!!


I am the first stop on today's hop! Hopefully, you've arrived here by way of the DeNami blog. If so, you are on the right track! If not, you'll want to head over to leave a comment on the DeNami blog. (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.)

Don't forget, there are some super-fun DeNami prizes to be won! Two lucky commenters 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, February 10, 2014, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs to be eligible for a prize. 


OK, on to my project! I really wanted my polka dots to stand out on my creation for today's hop, so I kept my design clean and simple. Here's what I created:


I used a few fun dotty products from DeNami Design: Polka Dot Circle stamp, Polka Dot Background stamp, Happy Birthday Script stamp, and Lime/White Dots washi tape. I also used white cardstock and Onyx Black Versafine ink from the DeNami store.

To make my design, I simply stamped the Polka Dot circle on white cardstock in several fresh colors then punched out each circle with a 1" circle punch. I adhered dotted lime washi tape along the bottom edge of the card base and lined up the punched circles along the top edge of the washi tape. It was so quick to make!
 
It's time for me to send you along on your way. But before you leave for more DeNami polka dot inspiration, be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for the randomly drawn prizes.  Then you can head out to see the next blog hop participant on today's list: Linda Carpenter
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the blog hop,
Emily

I love that you have white/green dot up top (with your sentiment) and then the negative of that at the bottom green/white dot. Those circles separating the two are just perfect. Very nice.
