Good Morning Artzy Fans!

This is Pam from Stamper at Heart Blog!

I love the paper that we have in the store.  It is double sided and very whimsical.  So I decided to show some of it off by doing a curtain fold.  This is a good way to use all of that wonderful double sided paper.  I don’t know about you but I hate trying to figure out which side to use especially when both sides are so cute!

I started off with an A2 white card base.  Cut a piece of navy card stock 5 1/4 x 4 1/8 and embossed with swiss dots.  Next cut a piece of paper 3 x 4 inch  from the Fields of Joy Variety Pack and glued it to the top of the card.  Using the back of the left over paper do your curtain fold.  If you go on Youtube you will find a ton of great videos on how to make this fold.  Here is just one.  After completing the fold I added it to the card and used a strip of DP across the top.  The strip is actually from that same piece of paper!

The last step was to stamp the little bird from the Joyful Noise set and color with copic makers B91, 45, 97 – R14, 17. Add the sentiment from the Perk Up stamp set and the card is complete.

Hi, Dare 2B Artzy Fans!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram!
I hope you are having a relaxing Saturday!  Dare 2B Artzy is a super sponsor for the Fall Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop!

I hope you have fun entering your creations on the blog hop!  There are so many fabulous sponsors and tons of chances to win some terrific prizes.  You might even be Dare 2B Artzy’s winner!

Dare 2B Artzy’s September challenge is to create a shaped card.  I thought this fun fall cocoa card fit the bill for both the challenge and the blog hop!  You can enter your shaped cards in the Ship Shape Challenge HERE for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

I began my card by lightly tracing a circle die onto card stock with a pencil.  I stamped the sentiment from Cup of Cheer in the middle of my circle.  This circle helped me position the beautiful leaves from the Tangle Leaves stamp set.  Die cutting the leaf shape from stamping mask paper helped me keep my leaves from overlapping one another as I created the leaf wreath (say that three times rapidly!!!).

Next, the leaves were colored with Copic markers.  I used the following combinations: (Y17, YR04, YR09), (YR16, R05, E19),  and (YG03, YG17, YG99).  Accents were added with a Sakura Glaze pen #822.

After the coloring was completed, I did a little fussy cutting around the leaves to make my shape card.  I then traced my shape on a folded card base and cut that out.  The leaf wreath was adhered to the top of the card base.  After stamping, coloring, and die cutting the cup from the Cup of Cheer stamp set, I was ready to pop it up on the card with a little foam tape.

I can’t wait to see what you create for the blog hop and/or the Ship Shape Challenge!

Happy stamping,

Hi all, it’s Vicki here today from All I Do Is Stamp. Today’s card is all about making someone feel good.

A smile is the best medicine for making someone feel good, don’t you agree? ;).  I did send this to a friend to cheer her up – it worked.

I used The Totally Tracy stamp set, Power of Flowers, along with a sentiment from Get Well Smiles.  I did water color the flowers.


See you in a couple of weeks~


Hi D2BA Friends!

Tasha here sharing a fun magic slider card created with the Hoot Hoot stamp set!

The awesome plaid D2BA paper was the color inspiration for this project, and I think these colors are just perfect for a fall birthday card!

The base was created with light blue cardstock; a small coordinating piece was also used for the pull tag.

For the slider frame, I used dark blue D2BA pattern paper and embellished with clear rhinestones. I love all the sparkle and texture!

To create the owl image, I first stamped the critter with StazOn black ink on the acetate.

Next, I stamped a second image with D2BA Black ink on white cardstock and colored it with markers.

 A solid white piece of cardstock fits in between the two allowing the colored image to magically appear when you pull the slider up; so fun!

To complete the card I stamped “Happy Birthday” on the bottom and embellished with some colorful D2BA flowers.

I hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to create a colorful fall birthday card with the Hoot Hoot stamp set!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday, Stampers!

It’s Melody, and I hope today finds you all well and safe.  My butterfly cards are dedicated to all those who have found themselves in the path of a hurricane or near out of control wildfires.  Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

The Dare 2B Artzy Challenge this month is to make shaped cards.  While these cards are rectangular, the fronts have been fussy cut to highlight the butterflies and provide a peek at the patterned paper adhered to the card base.
I began by creating masks for the butterflies from the Butterfly Inspiration set.  I then stamped the butterflies along the edge of my card base with Totally Black Ink.  Using the masks, I was able to overlap the butterflies as desired.  I then colored the butterflies with Copic markers.
I used the following Copic combinations: (R43, R14, R24), (BG13, BG05, BG09), (C1, C3, C4), (Y11, Y17, YR16), and (YG13, G43, G02).

Highlights were added with Wink of Stella and Sakura Glaze pens.  Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss White were also utilized on the card above.

I hope you will join in the fun of the Ship Shape Challenge!  Be sure to link up your creations here for a chance to win a Dare 2B Artzy stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

Happy stamping!

Hello Michelle Houghton here from to share your dose of D2BA inspiration this fine fall Thursday  (at least it is feeling very fall like inn my neck of the woods).

Before I share my art make sure to check out this month’s challenge “Ship Shape” and try your hand at a shaped card. Besides there is a prize to be had!

I decided to create a Bible Journal page this week. A daily devotional I receive on-line struck me and I knew I had the perfect stamp set from D2BA to feature on the page. I am even using a different medium this week!

If you would like a few more of the details make sure to check out my post over at my BLOG. Here is a close of that cute birdie.

Hello Dare 2B Artzy Friends

It is Pam from Stamper at Heart Blog Spot!

It is finally starting to fell just a tiny bit like fall today!  We are at 78 degrees which is really cool for this time of year in South Carolina!  So, I really felt like using the Playful Posies set in fall colors today!

I used an embossing folder for the background and cut a little frame with my Cricut.  I colored the flowers with my Copic makers.

After I cut out the flowers I taped down my gold cord and arranged the flowers.  I stamped the Praise sentiment on vellum using the Joyful Noise set.  It is embossed in gold. I then added some gold sparkle sequins.

Happy Monday, Stampers!
It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness!

Thank you so much for joining in the blog hop this past weekend!  I know the hop is over, but I had to make another card using the Playful Posies set!

Using the flower layers and no masking made the completion of this card expeditious!

I began by stamping the outline images with Chocolate Chip Ink.  I then stamped the layering images with Bright Pumpkin, Sunset Yellow, and Margarita Lime.

Next, I die cut the brown background layer using the stitched rectangle from the Cupcake Background Die.  I adhered this brown layer to the card base, added a strip of patterned paper along the bottom, and then adhered my stamped panel.

My card was completed using the beautiful Thanks Layer Die.

Having you join the hop this past weekend was just one of many reasons that I have to be thankful!  I am sure you have a heart filled with gratitude, too!  I know who will be getting this card from me!  To whom will you be sending your card of thanks?

Happy stamping!

Hi all Vicki Dutcher here today from All I Do Is Stamp blog.  Today I created a fun, bright Thank You card.

I sponged my background with oxide inks [so awesome!], and then stamped the flowers from Playful Posies Layered.  I cut out a circle, and added in a border, and adhered the fun new Thanks Layer die.  I love that this word die also includes a background cut.

Did you know that D2BA carries ink?  Yes, yes they do, and all inks used for stamping on this card are from the collections!  I highly recommend them – the Totally Black is amazing!

See ya next time!


Hi D2BA friends!

Tasha here sharing a new card created with the lovely Wishing Happiness stamp set!

The flower images were stamped on white cardstock and heat embossed in rose gold.

I love the look and texture embossing gives this project; so pretty!

To add color, I used watercolor markers and layered clear glitter for shimmer.

For additional color, I added watercolor droplets randomly around the front of the card.

The sentiment selected was “Wishing You Happiness” and it was stamped in black D2BA ink

Gold glitter washi tape framed the sentiment and added the perfect amount of sparkle!

Lastly, the card was layered on black cardstock and attached to a pastel orange textured card base. Pretty plum colored enamel dots and clear diamond sequins complete the design.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create with the new Wishing Happiness stamp set!
