Nuts About You

Hi friends:)
I'm posting the first Product Spotlight of 2013 for Denami today.
It's this cute little quad of mini stamps that are perfect for sweet ST.Valentine's Day cards.

I created two cards with it. One for each of my boys, because not only do they love nuts and collect acorns from our yard, but they like animals of any kind, especially squirrels:)
For the second one, I simply stamped the squirrel on a block stamp and re-stamped it onto my cardstock so it would be in reverse. Then I went over the lines (they are always a bit faded) with a Copic Multiliner
(for a more in-depth explanation, see a tutorial from last year, here.)

This sweet set of on sale all week, so grab it while you can! 
And be sure to comment on as many of the DT blogs as possible for a chance to WIN it!! (with only 9 stops to make, that's easy peasy;)

Awesome cards Dana! I love the fall feel of the first, and I love your fun colorful squirrels on the woodgrain background on the second! Sweet treats for the eyes!

Cute cards!! I see so many possibilities for this set - fall, thanksgiving, v-day, etc. And great reverse stamping -- I always have such a hard time with that!

Tina M said...

Cuteness and creativeness to the max, girl! Love how you highlighted the sentiment on the first card, would have never thought to do something like that...how perfect!

Barb said...

Squirrels are a fan favorite in my world, too, Dana! These two sweet cards are perfect for your boys. I love the woodsy flair of each!

Lisa said...

Your cards are amazing! I love the leaves paired with the acorns and the twine. The little squirrels reversed on the wood embossed paper and the little opening is awesome. Great work! :)

Linda said...

Dana that first card is so nice! Simple and almost elegant which I'd never thought of about acorns! Very nice cards!

I love the cards! The gingham in brown on kraft with twine is so warm and cozy feeling. I like the addition of color with the leaves...not too bold to distract from the nuts, but warm to tie in with your sentiment background color. On your second card I am mystified by the random color in the depths of the woodgrain...did you chalk your embossing folder to get that look? So much depth, SO nice!

FABULOUS cards, Dana!!! I especially LOVE the stamped gingham on the first card and how you have the two squirrels facing each other on the second!!! AWESOME work!
