Happy Birthday Hop!!


Welcome. Have you noticed that we are celebrating the birth of Denami Design Stamps all month long?  They have been in business for 24 years!! What an accomplishment!

On their birthday page, they have been offering a lot of opportunities for people to win prizes, gift certificates, and even some goodies from their wishlists! Check it out!

Today it's all about a hop though, and I'm first on the list. A bit intimidating I must admit:)


You can win one of three gift certificates just for participating in today's hop. Two lucky hoppers will win a gift certificate just for commenting! 
And best of all...?
You won't know just how BIG your gift certificate amount will be (but more than regular for sure) until the winners are announced on Tuesday! Wooh wee I love a good surprise!

On to my project...
I created a multi-layered diorama style card.
What a blast this was:)
Each layer was stamped and colored and cut out before assembling.

The back is where the recipient's name and a personal message will be written.

And it easily folds flat to fit in an envelope for mailing!
 I can think of so many Denami stamps that would be perfectly suited for cute scenes in this style!
How about all the darling animals like in a jungle or a zoo? Or the tree stamp with falling leaves and the scarecrow? The hardest part for me was just deciding on WHAT stamps to use! *chuckle*

Here's a list:
Grass Border

Your next stop in this fun birthday hop is Stacy!
Be sure to leave some love along the way, and if you hit an impasse, the Denami blog has a list of all the participants so you can resume the inspiration parade!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENAMI
Thanks for stopping by, good luck!
XOXO

Dana, this is so pretty and so cool. I am always looking for ways to make cards differently than the common 1/2 card stock size. I have never seen one of these before and must try it out. Your coloring is so bright and cheerful. What a great birthday card to give to someone. tfs Tami
