Grape notes


When I was a kid, Grape-nuts were my favorite cereal of all time. 
But I never understood why they were called grape-nuts
There were no grapes, and no nuts. 
Weird.

But this post is not about breakfast cereal, rather it's about a product spotlight for Denami!

This small cluster of grapes is so versatile. 
I love how cute it is alone and stamped in multiples too.
I stamped it in Versamark originally, and then again and heat embossed them in white for more effect.
I also stamped, colored and fussy cut a few out as a sort of hanging grape vine look. 
My uncle's pergola off his back patio is covered with grapes and vines. 
So pretty.
The sentiment is one of my faves from Denami because honestly, most of the cards I create are "just because" and this is the perfect one for an everyday card! 
I love the mix of fonts too.

The small grape cluster stamp is 10% off this week only, so pick one up today and create yourself something grape-a-liscious!

Oh, and for more bee-you-ti-ful samples using it, be sure to stop by the Denami blog today for a feast for the eyes!

Thanks for stopping by,

I ADORE this! Love how you've used the stamp create the background and the colored images just pop. What a great sentiment to go with those grapes!

Ok, I LOVE Grape-Nuts. It seems they've changed the recipe since I was a kid, but I loved those things. When they came out with Raisin Grape-Nuts, I was in Heaven. :)

Love the card, and the sentiment is perfect because, you're right, most of the time cards are really for no "special" reason other than to check in and say "hi!". Very cute!

I love your card! I do not love Grape Nuts. LOL I had some back in 1983 and have never had the desire to give them another chance. My Papaw loved them.

Oh, I love the background stamping in white! Great sentiment too! I don't know about grape-nuts either...I have often wondered the same thing.

This is so gorgeous I can't stand it!!
LOVE it! :)
And I always wondered why they were called Grape Nuts too...

Because well...
I was always too scared to try them...
I didn't know what they meant! :)
