Welcome Dare 2B Atrzy fans!!

Kendra here from Luv 2 Scrap N Make Cards to share a card with you!!

Please, don’t think I’m crazy, but I’m sharing a Christmas card!!!  I’m not sure why, but I actually did not get tired of making Christmas cards last year and have all kinds of ideas running through my head yet!

You can never have enough Christmas cards, so why not start already for this year!!

I used the fun newly released Holiday Magic stamp set!!

I stamped the poinsettia’s with VeraMark ink and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder!!   Love how elegant they look!!  I then used my watercolors to color them!!

I used a piece of Winter Plaid in the background, I absolutely LOVE this sheet of pattern paper!!

The lovely ‘Wishing you Joy in every Merry Moment’ sentiment is also from the Holiday Magic stamp set!!

I hope I’ve inspired you to start creating some holiday cards for this year!! 🙂

Happy Sunday Dare 2B Artzy Friends!!

We have one last post from Guest Designer Theresa!

We’ve really enjoyed having her GDT with us this month!!  THANKS!!!


Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!
I’m back as Guest Designer for
Dare 2B Artzy during the month of January!

This is my Last Post (inserting SAD FACE)
 I have totally enjoyed my time here and can’t THANK
Everyone at Dare 2B Artzy Enough for having me
be apart of their team this month!!
Now, Let’s see what I made this week —
Isn’t this just the Cutest??? OMGOSH! I LOVE this
I started out by using some 110lb White Cardstock – then I Die cut a piece
of Neenah Silver Metallic Cardstock with a Postage Frame Die
I found some Stitched Slope dies in my stash & die cut them out
to create 3 different layers — Then I pulled out a Background design 
I made using the Baby Wipe Method –
I adhered the white snow slopes to my Background design
then I used a Rectangle Stitched die to trim it down
the final size was 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
Here’s a close-up, so you can see this sweet Penguin riding on his sled
and I think the sentiment says it all! He looks like he’s just having a ball!!
I stamped all the images on some KOH-I-NOOR Bristol
Smooth White Watercolor paper – Then colored them
with my Zig Real Brush Pens – I added some Clear
Wink of Stella to the Hat & Scarf 
I adhered the Sled to the slope and then used some
Dimension to POP up my Penguin over the sled —
The Sentiment was made by using 2 circle dies
to help give it that curved look – then I just
fishtailed the ends to give it a banner design —
I popped the sentiment up as well and now
my card is ready to mail off!
Thanks so much for joining me this month!
Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
I’m SO excited about the new releases from Dare 2B Artzy.  I love to color, and I’m so stoked about some of the new flower sets that are coming out.  They are just BEE-utiful!  And that happens to be the name of the set I used to create this!

 Isn’t that a gorgeous stamp?!?  I used the following Copic markers to color:
BG02, BG05, BG07, G40, G43, YG03, YG06, B93, B95, Y23, Y26, C1
The patterned paper is from the Modern Bliss Collection.
Here’s a close-up:

Hi all, Vicki here today with a fun birthday card using a few of the new products arriving in February, and this whole month, the D2BA Team has been sharing sneak peeks of the new release.  There are some really fun sets, dies, and amazing papers coming soon!

Where to start…. the fabulous paper? the awesome cursive font of the die? or the fun balloons?  I love all of the products on my card!  That said, I have to say the font of the die is my favorite!  It’s just beautiful, and I will be using it a lot on future cards I have no doubt! 🙂

Like I said, this is a sneak peek — look for all the new products in February!

Thanks for stopping by~

Hi Dare 2B Artzy Friends!

Tasha here sharing a new card created with the super cute “Spit Happens” stamp set!

To create this scene, I stamped the images with black D2BA ink and colored them with markers. I used multiple shades of yellow to give the sky a beautiful glow behind the Alpaca. I love how it frames the image!

The sentiment selected was “Sending Warm Wishes” and it was also stamped in the same black ink. This set has so many fun sentiments!

Lastly, I used white gel pen and gold glitter to add more detail and layered the card on a rose gold glitter base. The rose gold adds tons of shimmer and completes the design!

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the D2BA January Challenge!

Hi!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram sharing my excitement about the new release from Dare 2B Artzy!
We have been giving you sneak peeks of some of the new Dare 2B Artzy products, and everything is now available for pre-order on the website!  This has to be one of the largest new releases from D2BA that I have ever seen!  You are going to fall in love with the new stamps, dies, stencils, and papers in this release!  There is something for everyone!

This card was created using two of the new floral sets, Bouquet 4 You and Blossom.  Both of these sets have matching dies and coordinating paper.

I began by stamping the flower pot image from the Bouquet 4 You stamp set with Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black ink.  I then colored the images with Copic markers.

 The sentiment was stamped from the Blossom stamp set.  The sentiments from these sets are quite versatile and allow these sets to be used for many different occasions!

While you are enjoying all of the amazing new products, don’t forget to enter your creations in the Dare 2B Artzy Winter Wonderland Challenge HERE for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

Happy crafting!

Happy Sunday Dare 2B Artzy Friends!!

We have Guest Designer Theresa on the Blog today sharing another lovely project!!


Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!
I’m back as Guest Designer for
Dare 2B Artzy during the month of January!
I’m just so Excited to be their Guest Designer
and I’m totally Lovin this Super CUTE
Check out what I created with it this week —
I started out by stamping the Cup & Topping images on some
Water Color paper, using my Misti Tool & some Versafine Onyx Black ink
Then I pulled out My Zig Real Brush Pens to
color up my images – I also Pulled out my
White & Clear Wink of Stella Pens to color the
Topping images – I thought they should sparkle! 
Once I got the mugs colored I thought it was time to 
pick some matching Papers & Dies —
I pulled out some Doodlebug Paper and a piece of Vellum
Then I added a couple of Rectangle Stitched dies & a Doily die
 I decided I wanted to use a stencil & make my own background – 
So I pulled this adhesive back dotted swirl stencil from my stash and 
grabbed some Distress Inks to match up with my mugs —
I did some masking off since I didn’t want the colors
all over my white cardstock piece —
Here’s a close up so you can see how I mixed the colors
together with the swirls – I tried to use different shades
of purples, blues, & grey… After I was done I
used a stitch die to cut out my cardstock – 
the final size is 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
This is my card completed – I Cut the Vellum with the Doily Die
because I wanted the swirls in the background to stand out —
It adds just enough to also make the mug Pop!
I cut a strip of grey Designer Paper and Stamped the sentiment 
with Versamark ink then Heat Embossed it with some 
Fine White Embossing powder – then I cut the ends
to give it that banner look – I also POPPED up my
Yummy Topping for just a little extra dimension – 
I had SOOOO MUCH Fun Making this card!
I can’t wait to mail it off to one of my Crafty Friends!
Thanks for stopping by today!
