DeNami Sketch Challenge #9 - I'm a Guest Designer!!

Monday, August 1, 2011

Today is a very special day for me! It's my debut as the August Guest Designer for DeNami Design Rubber Stamps! They are one of my favorite stamp companies, with the cutest, most elegant, and whimsical stamps! Some of you may be familiar with them, but if not, I encourage you to go check them out! The blog is also full of lots of ideas! I am positive you will find SOMETHING you like ;)

Today begins the next challenge, a Sketch Challenge by owner and stamp creator, Nami. You have until Sunday, August 28 at 11:59 PM PST to have your card uploaded to your blog or photo gallery, and linked to the sketch challenge thread on the DeNami blog. We would LOVE for you to participate in the challenge and see what awesome things you do with this sketch! The winner will receive a gift certificate to the DeNami online store!

I used some of my favorite stamps from the new collection for this card. The Water Lily takes center stage on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag, and I created some patterned paper with one of the stamps from the Ornamental Flowers Stamp Set. Of course, I had to add a little bling to each of the leaves---such a fun finishing touch! I also added a dab of clear Stickles on each leaf of the Water Lily.

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by for a visit today! It would mean the world to me if you took a minute to leave me some feedback on my FIRST card as a Guest Designer!! :) I'll be back with another post or two this week!
