Back to School Blog Hop ...



Good morning and welcome to the DeNami Design Back to School Blog Hop. Today we are using DeNami Design stamps to create fun projects for school. 

If you arrived at my blog from the very talented Wendy, you are on the right track.  However, if you just arrived or get lost along the way head on over to the DeNami Blog for a complete list of the participants.


I designed a 3-1/2 x 5 card based on the sketch shown below and it was so easy to put together.  I really love the design so I'm going to actually make a set of these for Katie's teacher for Christmas.  The adorable Teacher Chickie (D129) is the main focus of the card.  I colored her in with some Faber Castell Art Grip Color Pencils, applied Festive Berries Distress Ink from Tim Holtz around the edges, and then attached it to my design.

My design is based on this sketch ...
