DeNami July Blog Hop


Welcome to the DeNami Summer Blog Hop!

I hope you are having fun on today's hop, being inspired by everyone's creativity! You should have arrived her from the very talented Wendy Elliot's blog. If not, perhpas you have lost your bearings and want to head back to  DeNami Design Blog   to start at the beginning.

I don't have a lot of specifically summer themed DeNami stamps, so after some debate I chose what was for me my latest aquistion. These two have been on my wish list for a while, and when I saw it was being retired I had to jump on it: N61-Grapevine  and G106-grape cluster. 

I have used white card stock as a base. A layer of green crinkle paper, plum cardstock and from the Core'dinations All in the Family-Sandy Tans Collection, a piece that is also scored to resemble a lattice type fence and then sanded it, and punched tthe top edge with EK Success punch (also used on the plum).  Sprectrum Noir alcohol markers in green and purple, and prismacolor pencils in Sepia and Burnt Ochre were used for color. I fancy cut the grapevine stamp, and grape clusters. Pop-dot foam bits from Stampin' Up for a little lift of the leaves and grapes.
