Tasty Treats Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the DeNami Design Tasty Treats blog hop.  You should have come here from Andrea's blog.  Andrea always has some amazing projects to share!  If you didn't you can always pop over to the DeNami Design blog if you would like to start from the beginning or get lost along the way.  This is my very first time participating in a blog hop and I am excited and nervous to share my projects with you! 


I used the stamps Espresso Scene, Three Line Border, and Coffee Latte Espresso.  I stamped Espresso Scene on Mellow Moss and white cardstock and pieced the cups onto the background after coloring them.  I hung the circles from baker's twine from the twinery and tied a twine bow. 

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
All cardstock Stampin' Up!-Mellow Moss and Early Espresso
Espresso twne-The Twinery
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Stampin' Up! Scallop Trim border punch

The second project I want to share was my project for the last DeNami Design challenge.  It fit the theme of the hop so I thought I would share it too.


I used Ice Cream Cone for this card.  I colored part of the image with Copic markers.  I used StazOn and stamped the image again on a foil wrapper from a chocolate egg.  I cut the scoops out and added them to the image.  I used Polka Dot Border for the background.

Card measures 4.25" 5.5"
Sentiment stamp & ribbon-Stampin' Up!

Now it is time for the all of the fine print and details!

The blog hop starts on September 11th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until September 12, 2011, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Why should you hop you ask? Well other than huge amounts of inspiration to get your crafty blood pumping, DeNami Design is giving away a total of 3 $20 gift certificates.  One goes to a random participant (keeping my fingers crossed!) with design team members ineligible for the drawing.  The other two go to two random hoppers who leave comments along the hop.  So make sure to visit every page for your dose of inspiration and your chances to win

Your next stop on the inspiration train is Rochelle's blog.  I am sure she has some wonderful inspiration waiting for you.  Thanks for stopping by!
