My Bucket




If you popped into the shop on Saturday you would have seen me decorating this bucket.
It started life as a metal yellow bucket from our favourite Swedish store.
After a couple of coats of white paint to dull the yellow and act as a primer I was able to cover it with napkins using a watered down pva mixture.
The pink polka dot background is a printed napkin but it is the second layer of the napkin and not the top layer which is a very bright pink.
The Grunge Flowers, stems and leaves I stamped onto plain white napkins using Stazon (you can use Archival and heat set).
I then tore out the images and applied them on to the bucket using the same pva mixture.
You need to let it dry in between layers.
I did put some glitter glue inside some of the flowers and leaves.
I have yet to apply the top coat of Mod Podge but then it should be ready to put a pot plant in and give as a gift.

Snowflakes


I know it is a little late for Christmas inspiration this year but I wanted to share these with you as I like them so much.
Lesley created these at Stamperama Flitwick in October.
The snowflakes from our 3D Snowflake set have been embossed in white and then the card has been coloured with distress inks for the different colours.
Remember to buff the embossed areas after colouring so the white shines through clearly.
The same technique has been used on Wish Upon A Snowflake.

Patera Necklace

I believe I used air dry clay for the design inside the Patera.
Black air dry clay rolled onto a Clay Squisher and then I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to get the right shape but you could cut with a knife and then leave to dry.
Once dry I coloured with blue Mica Gloss.
I used a liquid glue inside the Patera like Diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents and then filled in the gap around with micro glass beads.
You could then cover with a glaze or resin to protect it but I have left mine open for texture.

We have patera currently on sale @ 70% off in different shapes, sizes and colours.

Take one Ikea mirror and . . . .



We used the black version of the mirror and then covered with acrylic paint.
The embellishments are made from mini canvases, stamped images behind acrylic,
shrink plastic, Tranz-it, melted embossing powder poured into moulds and a cookie cutter placed over JudiKins Clay Squisher stamps.
Air dry clay used in a mould and then painted with Mica Gloss, stamped Stampbord or EcoArtboard.
The list is endless.

We have been working on lots of new stamps designs to release early next year but we need to make space in our shop so that we have somewhere to hang them.

So from now until the end of 2014 we are offering 70% off all DeNami Design full priced rubber stamps in store and online.

For online you will need to put SALE in the Notes/Comments box and we will have to manually deduct from your total before we despatch - this discount will not show on the screen.  If in doubt put things in your basket with your name and address and then call us and we can retrieve your basket.

Will you come in store and help us make some space?
