Greetings Chris here and today I am excited to share this adorable “manly” card I created for Dare 2B Arzty! I just LOVE that old fisherman!  He reminds me of my grandpa!

Supplies Needed:

Dare 2 B Artzy Gone Fishin Stamp Set

Dare 2 B Artzy Modern Bliss Paper

Archival Ink

Watercolor Markers

Cardstock and Card Base

Start by stamping the fisherman onto white cardstock

Color fisherman with watercolor markers.

Add Modern Bliss papers to card base.

Matte colored image onto coordinating Cardstock and add to card. I doodled some dots along the white space above and below the stamped image to finish off the card!

 

 

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
Today, I am posting a card that was SO much FuN to make.   I’m going through a bit of personal issues here lately and decided to make a card just for me.  I’m going to keep this card on my desk…
 Isn’t it pretty?  And the reminder to “Let it go” will be good for me.  The flower and sentiment are from the Dare 2B Artzy, Let It Go Stampset and are stamped with Totally Black ink (great for Copic or watercolor techniques).  To create this card, I smeared distress oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Iced Spruce onto my craft mat, added some water, and ran the watercolor cardstock through.  Then I put Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet and Peeled Paint on my craft mat and watercolored in the flower and leaves.  I took what was left on my craft sheet and flicked the paintbrush to get some splatters.  I also added some polka dots to the flower with a Kiririna Wink pen.  To embellish, I framed it on teal cardstock with a pink border die cut (with small pearls) and added some washi tape.
Here’s a close-up of that pretty flower:

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a CAS beach-themed card created with the amazing Flip Flops stamp set, Midnight Blue, Margarita Lime and Paradise ink, and a thin strip of the reverse side of the Chevron paper used on the inside. I LOVE a blue and green color combo!

I stamped the beach chair in the Margarita Lime ink and the sentiment in the Midnight Blue ink. I adhered the stamped panel to some fun foam for a little dimension and layered it on a blue panel which I adhered to the card base.

Using a Spectrum Noir marker, I colored in the word “Tide” and added a few sequins matching the colors used on the inside.

Hi all, it’s Vicki Dutcher, from All I Do Is Stamp.  Today I am sharing a good bye card.

I have a co-worker who is leaving [so sad] to become a brand new stay home mom [so happy].  I am really going to miss this chick, and I wanted to give her a card to let her know that. 🙂

Using the Butterfly Kisses set, along with a sentiment from the Totally Tracy Spring Into Life helped me make the perfect card for her.

       

 

I used the direct to paper technique with my inks [I do love this look].  The nice solid stamped butterflies work well with it too [I think].

I think my co-worker will like this card.  It has the perfect sentiment for her for sure!  I hope you like it too!

See you next time~~

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
I love to color.  I really love to color the FuN images from Dare 2B Artzy, like the flowers in the Flowers for Mom stamp set.
 I colored this flower with Copic markers:  R32, R35, R37, YR12, YR14, YR16, YG00, YG03, YG06, G40, G43, G46, B12, B14, B16, RV52, RV55, C1 and C3.  Lots of Copics; lots of fun!  Here’s a close up showing the detail in this beautiful flower:
 
The sentiment is a die from Dare 2B Artzy, called Love You Layer Die.  The background paper is from the Fields of Joy collection.  I finished off the card with some white pearls.

Hi Chris here and we have been swamped with graduations!  All three of my kids graduated! My oldest from College, my middle from Junior College and my youngest from 8th grade!  Needless to say lots of their friends graduated as well.  So…. I needed LOTS and LOTS of graduation cards! I chose a simple design that was easy to recreate!

 

Supplies needed:

Dare 2B Artzy Paisley Bliss

Dare 2B Artzy You’ve Got Mail

Dare 2B Artzy Midnight Blue Premium Ink

This card is super quick and easy and could be recreated in your graduates school colors.

Mask off location for greeting.  Stamp Paisley Bliss around card.

Remove mask and Stamp Greeting fromYou’ve Got Mail and the Card is finished!

Hope you are inspired to get stamping!

 

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
The Dare 2B Artzy Cupcake Background Die is so perfect for quick birthday cards.  Here’s how I used it:
 
 Cute huh?  I love the fun detail.  I ran it through my Big Shot twice – once in the light green and once in purple.  I then cut the cupcake base from a scrap of the blue.  I had a sheet of adhesive behind the large green die cut, so I just stuck it down on the blue, stamped the sentiment on the cupcake base and glued it down.  I took the “negative” from the purple and added some purple frosting onto my cupcake.  I added some twine and sequins along with a button – and done!

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a pretty sympathy card using the Wishing You Comfort stamp set, Wild Orchid Ink, Leaf Background die and a scrap of Artzy Doodles Wild Orchid paper.

2017_03050001a

I’m in love with this leaf background die, and definitely see more projects using this in my future!  I used two contrasting shades of purple and placed a layer of vellum with tiny flowers between the lighter die cut piece and the darker bottom piece. I stamped the sentiment in white dye ink and added a pretty double-loop bow.

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!!!

We have Guest Designer, Michelle from Scrapweaver.com, joining us again today to share one last project with us this month!!


Hello again! Michelle Houghton here with another post for my guest designer month at Dare 2B Artzy!
For this post I decided to play with the Raggity Rabbit stamp set. I am totally in love with this stamp set for a variety of reasons. I love the image and all the little do-dads that go with it, this is one well loved friend. I also love the range of the sentiments from Easter, to friendship allowing
for a whole slew of card ideas and options!
So strait to the creating! First I stamped my image and sentiment with D2BA Premium Ink – Totally Black.

Then I gathered my Copic markers, I decided to go for muted tones this time with a group of E40’s and V90’s.
I colored up my image using my Copics and added my Colorless Blender to fade the background color to white.
I had some older patterned papers in my stash that matched the feel of the colored image perfectly and I added some touches of burlap and twine that felt a little worn around the edges like my rabbit.
On Wednesday, May 31st I will have a video featuring this very card from start to finish. It will show the Copic coloring and card making. You can find it at Copic In The Craft Room on YouTube.

Feel free to also stop by my personal blog or other social media outlets as well and get all the up to date information on Copic happenings!
