I am so very excited to have recently discovered
 DeNami Designs Stamps,
that I already have a HUGE wish list!!!
I can't wait until the next time
I add to my already quickly growing collection of their adorable stamps!
(If you have a favorite stamp that you think I should put on the list,
please leave a comment and let me know!)

Here is what I designed for this Sweet and Simple hop,
using the first three stamps that I purchased from DeNami...
A close up of the adorable little chicks...
Yes, the chick that is standing there ( pun intended)
has a butterfly "bow" on her head! I used the adorable
Chickie with Butterflies stamp (found HERE)
and just inked the parts that I wanted to use. Then I cut out one of the
butterflies to use as a bow. Creative, eh?
To get them all sparkly, I fussy cut the chicks, used some double sided adhesive
with microfine glitter and then colored over the glittered image with my Copics.

The background is from the stamp set that I am offering as blog candy today (Get Inky! Stamps by Blue Moon Creation found HERE).
I just stamped the image in a repeated pattern to make my own background paper
(something I learned at my first visit to a DeNami hop a few months ago).
I thought the image went well with the Computer Chickie (found HERE).
Don't you think so too?

Okay, so I couldn't stop at one card...I had to use the other stamp that I received
with my first purchase as well. Here is what I came up with...
I just love these cute chickie stamps (Chickie with Ice Cream found HERE)!
I paper pieced the ice cream using pattern paper to give them each a different  look.
The entire oval is colored using Copics, minus the ice cream. A Sweet and Simple card...right?

I hope you've enjoyed your stop here along the hop! I sure enjoyed having you!
So please feel free to come back again!

Okay... I'm having so much FUN,
I hate to see you go, but I must send you on your way...
Your next stop on the hop is the talented Ruza
