DeNami Designs Monochromatic Blog Hop

DeNami April Blog Hop


I've joined my first blog hop through the awesome DeNami Designs (love their stamps!).  If you're following the hop, you've arrived here from Ruza's blog

I adore DeNami's cat-themed petit fours, and seeing as I needed to make a thank-you card for our friends who catsit for us, I decided to use my cat stamps for my monochromatic card.  I chose my colors based on my cats.  Doogie is gray-and-white, and Ninja is black.  Perfect! 


I even chose to stamp on the ribbon.  Works for me!

Be sure to visit Dana's blog next to see what she has created!  If you follow the hop and leave a comment on every blog, you'll be eligible to win a $20 gift card from DeNami Designs!

How KA-UTE Anne Marie!!! Love the lovely shades of grey - it's so striking!!! The stamps on the ribbon are a fantastic touch too! Great job!

Pat Quinet said...

Really cute card, especially the ribbon--it's a great idea. Good luck on your pregnancy. I'm sure you'll have a "bundle of joy" when you finally get to see your new little one.

Anne Marie, I LOVE this card! Maybe it's because I, too, have two cats! Maybe because it is just so CUTE! LOVE the grays and the way you stamped it and the stamping on the ribbon! Great way to ROCK your first blog hop!!

What a beautiful color choice for this sweet monochromatic card. It's so cute!

Annette Holleger said...

Very cute. I have the dog stamps but not the cat stamps yet. The ribbon is a perfect touch. Thanks for sharing.

Thirsty said...

So along with everyone else, it seems, I love that you stamped the ribbon! Your metals work perfectly with the black/grey/white, too, something you probably can't do with other mono schemes.

Tenia Nelson said...

Crafty Math Chick said...

OMG! - my husband wanted me to call my blog "My Stamping Empire - these are not the cards you are looking for..." as a Star Wars reference (I went with Canines and Card Designs instead, much to his dismay). Cute card. I like the kitties and the shiny nailheads.
