Happy Thursday all you Dare 2B Atzy fans! Michelle Houghton here from scrapweaver.com bringing you a little creative inspiration! I am in the mood for holiday goodness these days so I wanted to share one of my latest favs! BUT, before I do that a quick reminder that we have an awesome challenge going on (there is one every month you know 😉) This month is all about Gratitude. Make sure to submit your work for a chance to win!

 

On to my new craze! I have been playing with fabric and die cuts. The Dare 2B Artzy Poinsettia die cuts work perfectly for the process. Here is one of the fabulous flowers I created:

So easy, I treated the fabric with a stabilizer then ran it through my die cut machine. I have been putting these lovelies on all sorts of projects but here is a SUPER SIMPLE card that a couple landed on:

Dare 2B Artzy has all sorts of beautiful dies to choose from and you can use them with the coordinating stamps on their own for a completely different look!

Make sure to take a look at all of Dare 2B Artzy’s wonderful holiday options!

For today’s creation all I needed was the Poinsettia Die!

Thank you for joining us today and hope to see you again soon! Have a Happy Colorful Day!

Hello Dare 2B Artzy friends! It’s Tonya from Krafty Enchantments. I am back today with a quick holiday card to share with you.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been following Kristina Werners blog. Every year about this time she does a video series for her holiday cards! I love to see what interesting card designs she comes up with and my card today was inspired by one of her holiday cards.

For this card, I had to dig through my Dare 2B Artzy stamps to find the perfect stamps to create a wreath. Initially I chose the little branch that comes with the Poinsettia Tangle stamp set but it didn’t work quite like I’d hoped.

Instead, I used the cute little branch from the Tis the Season stamp set.

To create my wreath, I used a 4 inch circle die as a template and drew a faint circle onto some white cardstock with a pencil. This gave me a path to follow when stamping the wreath shape.

Next, I pulled out 4 different colors of green ink. All of the ink was from different stamp companies, but I tried to pick colors that complimented each other well and also gave the appearance of the greens that you would see in an actual wreath. With my darkest color, I stamped the branch an equal distance around my circle. As I stamped each image I would turn the image towards the inside of the wreath circle slightly or towards the outside of the wreath circle. I even stamped a couple of times so that the center branch lined up with the line of my circle. I continued stamping each of the colors in the same way around my circle until it resembled a wreath.

To create the little red berries or ornaments on the wreath image – not sure which it would be, I found the perfect Dare 2B Artzy stamp set. The Doodle Flowers stamp has a perfect dot stamp that turned out to be the perfect size. To use it, I brushed on some anti-static powder across the entire wreath and placed it into my MISTI. Next, I used some Versamark ink and stamped the dot and then repositioned it and re-inked it and stamped again until I had several stamped images around the wreath. Finally, I sprinkled on my red embossing powder and heat set it. I love that it works perfectly with the branches.

For my sentiment, I used the Poinsettia Tangle stamp set. I just love the sentiments in this set. I positioned the stamp in the center of my wreath using my MISTI and stamped and heat embossed it with some Champagne embossing powder. I like the color of this embossing powder because it looks gold, but isn’t quite as brassy as gold embossing powder.

Next, it was on to creating the base for my card. To do that I used the 5 inch circle die and a piece of my favorite Dare 2B Artzy holiday paper which is plaid and layered that into my die cutting machine with one edge of the circle not completely covered by the cutting mat. This gave me a circle card with a top fold since the top edge wasn’t cut. I cut a second piece out of some white cardstock for the inside panel of the card. I adhered the inside panel to the card base with some score tape.

To finish the card I used some Versamark ink and ran the ink pad around the edge of my wreath and also the edge of my car base and sprinkled on some more Champaign embossing powder to give it just a hint of a golden shimmer to the edge of the card. I think it finishes the card nicely.

I used a little Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on some of the wreath branches to give them an extra bit of shimmer.

I think this would be a great card to make in large quantities because it actually comes together really quickly. You could easily do an assembly line to make these cards with friends and family.

I had a lot of fun finding new ways in which to use my Dare 2B Artzy stamps to create this card inspired by Kristina Werner.  It really makes me look at my stamps in new ways and find other ways to be creative with some of my images.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on a holiday wreath card. Be sure to check out all of Dare 2B Artzy’s holiday stamps and papers available in the shop and be sure to stay tuned for the awesome hop coming up this weekend with the entire Dare 2B Artzy team. I know you’ll be inspired by all the amazing projects.

Tonya

Hi D2BA Friends!

Tasha here sharing a new Owl Christmas shaker card created with the fun Christmas Owl stamp set!

The super cute owl image was stamped with Black D2BA ink and colored with markers. I used shades of gray and pops of teal to give a wintery look; I just love the holiday sentiments on the owl!

The frame was created with the D2BA snowflake pattern paper and layered on silver glitter paper. D2BA has great quality paper and I love that they are double-sided. This holiday print is one of my favorites!

For the inside of the shaker, I used a light blue heavy cardstock and stamped the sentiment “Merry Christmas” in black ink. I also used one of the included snowflake stamps and a white gel pen to create a snowy background. Lastly, the shaker was filled with pastel sequins; love these colors!!!

To complete this card, I attached it to a teal textured card base and added some little white gel details to the owl.

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card and are inspired to create a holiday project using the Christmas Owl stamp set!

Hi!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram!

Happy Monday!
Thanks again to all of the U.S. Veterans.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with gratitude for your service!

We are starting the week off here in Ohio with temperatures that I am sure would make this penguin feel right at home!  The high is predicted to be 43 degrees, but the sun is supposed to shine!

It was hard to decide which penguin to use in today’s project as there are so many cute penguins in the Dare 2B Artzy Penguin Fun set!  After stamping this cutie with Totally Black ink, I colored him with the following Copic markers: (R14, R37, R89), (Y02, Y17, YR16), (YG03, YG17, YG99), (B00, BG57, BG09), and (BV00, BV04, BV08).  Accents were added with Wink of Stella, Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops, and Sakura Glaze Pens.

After die cutting the penguin images with the coordinating dies, I cut the Holiday Damask paper with a stitched rectangle die from the Leaf Background Die.  The penguin was mounted to the card with an Action Wobbler.  I tried (emphasis on tried!) to take a video holding the phone in my left hand while trying to make the penguin slip on the ice.  As you will see in the video clip below, I am in desperate need of a tripod!!!

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy Fans! Michelle Houghton here from scrapweaver.com Fall is in full swing here in Iowa and Winter is encroaching WAY TOO FAST for my liking. The cold is creeping in. But Thanksgiving is around the corner and the Holiday season. I am in a creating mood! Cards for “thank yous” to friends that have been good to me!

I used the Tangled Leaves stamp set to create beautiful card fronts:

I created 4 out of a single sheet of cardstock.

If you would like to see more of the details of how I created the cards make sure to stop by my blog. In the mean time make sure to get your entry in for the November challenge on D2BA, and take a spin through the D2BA store and all it’s crafty goodness!

Have a Happy Colorful Week!

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
I’m still finishing up my Christmas cards!  How about you?  Today, I’m showing off a fun card using the Poinsettia Tangle Stamps and Coordinating Dies.
I love this poinsettia.  It’s so much fun to color….and not to color (much).  I did the top layer of the card using R35, R37, and R39.  I highlighted the white parts with C1 and C3 and colored the center with Y23 and Y28.  For the bottom layer, I just colored the edges with R35 and used C1 and C3.  I used pop tape to add some dimension between the layers.  Here’s a close-up:
 
The beautiful paper is from the Holly Days paper collection.  Have you “liked” us on Facebook yet?!  You should!  There’s all kinds of beautiful inspiration.  Be sure to also check out all D2BA’s products here!

Craftily yours,

Hi all, it’s Vicki from All I Do Is Stamp.  Today I have a CAS, encouraging card for you all.

A lovely CAS card using the D2BA Butterfly Inspirations stamp set, along with the Joyful Butterfly matching dies.  I sponged my background panel with the Bright Pumpkin and Sunset Yellow inks, and for my sentiment, I used the Totally Black ink.

A cheerful, encouraging card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today — See you in a couple of weeks~
