Valentine Inspiration


Welcome to the next stop on the DeNami Design Valentine blog hop.  I hope you have enjoyed yourself so far!  If you have been following the hop, you should have come here from Paulina's  blog.  I am sure she whipped up something wonderful for you as always.  Her blog is always full of inspiration as well as the DeNami Design blog.  If you didn't hop here from Paulina's blog and you would like to start at the beginning or you get lost along the way, you can always hop over to the DeNami Design blog to start from the beginning or where you left off.

Here is the project I have for you today.


I used the patterned paper as my color inspiration pulled all of my colors from it.  As I was going through my DeNami Design stamps trying to figure out which one to use, I saw the Heart Flower Trio Circle and I thought it fit the design paper perfectly.  I usually pick my stamp first, so this was a bit of a change for me!  I pieced the tiny hearts on the stamp using foil wrapping from a piece of chocolate candy.  It has so much shine to it!  I used Crystal Lacquer and added a little bit of glitter to the image for a little extra sparkle!

The next stop on your Valentine tour is Rochelle's blog.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way.  Not only does it make everyone's day a little brighter, but every comment gives you a chance to win one of 2 $20 DeNami Design gift certificates.  Two very lucky commenters will be chosen at random to win the gift certificates to increase their stash of DeNami Design products.  You have until 11:59 pm PST on Monday, January 10th to leave your comments!  One random blog hop participant will also be chosen for a third $20 gift certificate (design team not eligible).

Thank you for stopping by!
