Denami design blog hop/ anything but a card challenge

Hello hello hello!!!
You should have come from Deb's blog if you're hopping in here,
then hop on over to Denami's Design blog for a full rundown of all participants!
I am soooooo excited to be participating in the Denami Design Washi Tape Blog hop today!
AND today is DT day for Anything But a Card!!! Where the challenge is things with Wings!
For your perusing pleasure I've created a couple of coasters
Using a piece of old paper I ran strips of washi next to eachother...
I then stamped on top of those strips with my Denami butterflies
they were fussy cut out, and then glued onto the coasters.
A little bit of distress stain along the sides of the coasters, and a layer of
Glossy accents on the top finished these little beauties off!
Here's a close up of the larger butterfly,
and of the grouping of smaller ones!
Then I got really adversome, and also created this super easy card!
Also using washi tape...
These quick stamps are and easy to use with my staz-on black ink,
I colored up the butterflies with my Copic markers, added a strip of washi,
and the Denami Design "thinking of you" stamp (but I masked off the "you" on the stamp)
and added the you in large pretty glittery letters!
And while this is very good for the Denami Hop, this sort of project won't fly at anything but a card!
However please hop over there and check out all the wonderful DT creations!

Your next stop on the hop is someone I'm a huge fan of Miss Pauline from Pretty Pink Posh
(oh how I love her 10 minute craft dash!)
I hope you love what you've seen so far!

  7. Genius to make coasters. With the Glossy Accents on top are they usable or just for display? Looks fabulous either way.
