DeNami Lovely Layers Blog Hop


Hi Bloggers and Welcome to the DeNami 
Lovely Layers Blog Hop.
Today you will go a journey.  A lovely journey around blog land  seeing all the Lovely Layer Creations.  This hop is sponsored by the DeNami Designs Blog.   Here is the low down:

When: The blog hop starts on July 10 at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until July 11, 2011, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why: To be inspired by beautiful creations featuring DeNami Design stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!
Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! .  We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!
So be sure to leave a comment on each blog.  

You should have traveled here from Pam Wendt's Blog and enjoyed her Lovely project.  If you just wandered in, you can start at the top by clicking over to  the DeNami Blog.

For my project, I choose to use a stamp from the Mimi Boutique.  Mimi is one of my favorite categories of DeNami Stamps.  They are just sooo cute and great for coloring or paper piecing.   I used "Mimi In The Rain" and added....you guessed it.  Lots of Lovely Layers.  (This is a long, tall card measuring 7 1/4" x 4 1/4".)



Mimi's umbrella, coat, skirt, and boots are paper pieced.  The rest of the image was colored with markers.  I die cut the image and the next layer with Spellbinders.  The DP is Basic Grey.  CS: Pale Plum and Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up.  

For accents, I added a purple and green polka dot ribbon and some lavender rhinestones.  


And, I thought you might like a peek at the inside.  The sentiment on the inside is from DRS Designs.  I think this sentiment fits so well with Mimi in the Rain.



Your next destination is Kristy Smith's Blog and her Lovely project.  To be eligible for the Prizes, don't forget to leave a comment here before you journey on.  Have fun hopping!  Thanks for stopping by!!  Love ya.
