  3. Glue the white and DP to the front of the card
  4. Stamp the vases and color with copic markers: G43, 94, 99 – YR14, 16, 18 – BG11, 53, 57 – RV10, 32, 33
  5. Cut out the vases with the coordinating dies and pop dot to the card

Happy Sunday Dare 2B Artzy Friends!!

Please help us give a warm Welcome to this month’s Guest Designer….she is so sweet and very talented!!!


Hi! I’m Theresa and I live in Southern Utah with my sweet husband  –  We have 3 amazing boys and I started crafting when my oldest started Kindergarten – that was over 20 years ago! Seems like yesterday sometimes! LOL I started with scrapbooking but found that I like making cards way more!
I also have a second love which is home decor projects! I like to paint them & vinyl them up with fun sayings! If I’m not in my craft room (which is all the time) you’ll find me in my kitchen because baking & cooking are some of my other loves – I’m Excited & Honored to be Guest Designer for Dare 2B Artzy amongst these beautiful and talented ladies!


Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!
Today is a HUGE honor for me as I’m Guest Designer for Dare 2B Artzy this Month! EEK!
You have no idea how excited I am to be doing this!
Anyway, They have a wonderful Challenge that started last Sunday
The theme is Winter Wonderland!
 Here’s what I created to inspire you to play along:
I just LOVE how this card turned out!
I’m using the adorable stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy called Cup of Cheer!!
I really like how the sentiment matches up perfectly with my card design!
I stamped my cup on some Watercolor paper and colored it with my Zig Real Brush Pens.
I created the steam by stamping on Vellum with versafine Onyx black ink then
heat embossing it with some Fine Black embossing powder! 
Then I fussy cut around the steam and attached it with a quickie glue pen!
This is gonna be a great card to send to one of my crafty friends!
I look forward to seeing what you create!

Have a Fabulous Day!!

Hi D2BA friends!

Tasha here with a sneak peek of the new Hats Off stamp set!

For my project, I created a fun baseball themed birthday card perfect for any sports fan! The baseball and bat were stamped in D2BA black ink and cut with coordinating dies. I love sets that have matching dies; it makes cardmaking so quick!

The sentiment selected was “To The Birthday Boy” and it was stamped in white pigment ink. I wanted to keep the background dark and masculine, so I decided to stamp the greeting right on to the charcoal cardstock. This font also has a wood-like detail that totally adds a texture look.

Lastly I used the new Ball Caps double-sided pattern paper for the outer frame to add color and complete the design!

I hope you enjoyed a peek at the new Hats Off stamp set and are inspired to create a baseball themed project!

Happy Monday!
It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram hoping that you are staying warm on this cold Ohio morning!

Dare 2B Artzy is getting ready to release some fabulous new products, and I am excited to share a sneak peek from one of the new sets with you today!  New products will be available for pre-order today and will be shipping on February 15, 2018!

This card uses the soon-to-be-released Hats Off stamp set.
I love the versatility of this new set as it can easily be used to create masculine or feminine cards!  For today’s card, I chose to go the feminine route!
After stamping the hat images to create masks, I stamped the center image with Dare 2B Artzy’s Totally Black ink.  This ink is Copic friendly!

I then masked off the center hat and stamped the hats on both the immediate right and left.  Next, I masked those hats and finished by stamping the remaining star-studded hats.  Then it was time for a little coloring!  I used the following Copic marker combinations, but any coloring medium would work!
(B23, B26, B99), (YG03, YG17, YG99), (Y17, YR04, YR09), and (RV02, RV04, RV09)

I stamped the sentiment with Midnight Blue ink and cut out the panel with the stitched rectangle included in the Leaf Background Die set.

I love these hats so much that I had to stamp another one on the inside of the card!  Check out the stamp set below to see all the images and sentiments included with the set.  The fun multiplies exponentially as there are matching dies and even matching paper!  The dies will also cut out the hats on the coordinating paper!

Don’t forget to enter the January Challenge!  You could be the lucky winner of a stamp set and ink pad!

We would love to see your creations on Instagram!  If you post cards using D2BA products, be sure and use #dare2bartzy so we can be inspired by your creativity!

Hello Dare 2B Artzy fans! Michelle Houghton from www.scrapweaver.com here to share a little crafty inspiration today.

I am creating 2 cards this week I’ll share one today and then you need to come back on Sunday to see all the details on our new challenge!

Here are 2 quick peeks at my card today:

I stamped several snowflakes from the “Snowflake Wishes” set using my Copic markers

I then trimmed them into strips and added them to my card base of beautiful Dare 2B Artzy papers.

Simple and sweet, my kind of card. As a bonus head over to my blog – www.scrapweaver.com and catch a video of the full process!

Thank you for joining me today, make sure to stop by the Dare 2B Artzy shop to see all the wintery fun and more available for your crafting fun.

For this project I used the following products:



Happy New Year! Happy everything! It’s  Tonya from Krafty Enchantments.com. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. I had a very nice Christmas spent with family and friends. I even enjoyed a solid week away from work with minimal interruptions which was a treat.

I’m here to share a sneak peek of some exciting new releases coming out in February for Dare 2B Artzy. Talk about Happy Everything!! I’m so excited for all of the new releases. There are lots of fun new goodies coming out and you’re going to love it!

I won’t keep you waiting any longer. My card today features one of the beautiful new flower bouquets all tied up with a ribbon. This stamp set is called Bouquet 4 You. I love wildflower bouquets. This one is so beautiful for its mix of flowers which also makes it fun to color because you can have a variety of colors in the bouquet.

I colored the flowers using my Soucolor pencils (available on Amazon) and used a blending stump and a touch of Gamisol to blend.

Once colored I fussy cut the flowers out and set them aside.

I also used a sentiment, Happy Everything and printed it to some cardstock and then foiled with some Wild Lilac therm-o-web foil (which is now my new favorite foil color – it’s so pretty!!).

My sentiment was cut to a strip of 3 inches by 1 ½ inches and placed over the center of the card. My flower bouquet was layered on top using some dimensional foam.

I added some sequins to the card for some added sparkle. My finished card measures 3 ½ inches by 4 3/8 inches so it’s a cute, petite card that’s suitable for most any occasion or just a quick hello to a friend.

This new release of goodies from Dare 2B Artzy are chalk full of awesome! There are stamps, gorgeous new 12 x 2 papers and beautiful stencils. I believe there will be some matching dies as well. The new release items should be available for PRE-ORDER in the Dare 2B Artzy store soon. Pre-orders will ship on 2/15.

Lots of reasons to celebrate in the New Year and I can’t think of a better reason than new stamps from Dare 2B Artzy!

Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
