May your Coffee Be Strong

Greetings!  Chris here from Psychotic Ramblings of a Serial Scrapper sharing this coffee card with you! This card was created for this month’s Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers.

To re-create this card start by cutting my Flower Power paper slightly smaller than my card base.  Add a large cardstock block across the center of my card.

Stamp the coffee cup and greeting from the Dare 2B Artzy Perfect Blend Stamps set onto white cardstock. ( I originally stamped the steam, but my card went off in another direction and the steam did not get used. )

Cut the greeting into a banner shape.  Color the coffee cup with your favorite markers. I chose Spectrum Noir markers in TN 2, TN 3, and IB 1. Stamp cup wrap with coordinating greeting from the stamp set. Fussy cut your colored coffee mug.

Add your cup and banner greeting to the card base.  Accent cardstock with doodled stitches.  Hope you are inspired to get stamping and play along with the Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers.

Be Bold

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
I am having so much fun with the new chipboard that coordinates with the Totally Tracy stamps!  This style of crafting is very different for me, and I’m enjoying stretching my boundaries a bit.  Today’s card features the stamp set, Be Bold.
 D2b-bold
I used a TH stencil to stencil on the sunray with distress inks in Fossilized Amber and Dried Marigold.  I then painted the flower with Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold Distress paints before stamping the flower using Totally Black ink.  I covered the whole flower with crackle paint and added a Nuvo drop center!  The highlight paper is from the Blooming Border pack.  (Love those lil leaves!)
Here’s a close-up of the sparkly flower goodness:

Happy Mother’s Day

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a pretty Mother’s Day card featuring a couple papers from the absolutely gorgeous In Bloom Collection Paper Pack along with the Flowers for Mom stamp set and Totally Black ink. If you like super fun and easy, then you’ll love this project!

I cut the front flap of the card base shorter using a curved scallop edge die. I layered a piece of Blooms paper on black cardstock and adhered it to the front flap. I cut a length of the striped coordinating strip from the top of the paper (yep, you should keep those!) and two very narrow strips of black cardstock, and set them aside. For the bottom portion under the flap I used a piece of Fields in Bloom paper layered on black cardstock, then adhered the striped and black strips previously cut and set aside.

I purposely cut the Blooms paper so the green flower, which coordinates with the green card base, would be in the center of the panel. I cut a green flower out of another section of leftover Blooms paper and adhered it to plain white cardstock. I trimmed it leaving a small margin of white around the outside of the flower which I colored with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to make it stand out. I adhered several loops of bamboo hemp cord under the extra flower and affixed it with 3-D foam pads over top of the green flower in the center of the card flap. I then added flat-back pearls in various colors to the flowers and the strip across the bottom.

Spring into Life Floral Greeting

chrispozzi_0444wm

Hi Chris here from Psychotic Ramblings of a Serial Scrapper and I am so excited to share this card I created with the New Totally Tracy Spring into Life Stamp Set!

To create this card I started with a 5 1/2 inch card base.  I cut 2 squares of grey cardstock ( 4 1/2 inch, 3 1/2 inch) and dry embossed the square with an embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Oxford). Adhere the larger square to the left side of your card.

I then cut 2 squares from white cardstock (3 3/4 inch, 3 inch) and stamped the flower onto the 3 inch stamp using Dare 2B Arty’s Totally Black Ink.  I then stamped the flower two more times onto white cardstock and fussy cut these 2 images, one using the full image and one using just the flower center petal.

IMG_0398
I lightly colored my flower and flower pieces with a Distress Marker (Shaded Lilac)IMG_0400

I added the full image on top of the stamped square using dimensional tape and then added the center petal with dimensional adhesive tape.

IMG_0401

I matted the dimensional stamped image onto the embossed grey cardstock and then matted again with the remaining white cardstock square. Adhere to card.

Stamp you greeting and mat on grey cardstock and add to your card.  Add your ribbon bows and you are done!

Here is a close up of the dimensions on this card.

Hope you are inspired to get stamping!

Boxed Set of Thank You Cards

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, an awesome boxed set of six thank you cards using the Flowers for Mom stamp set with coordinating Joyful Flower dies. Fun, fun, fun!

My inspiration for this project came from a YouTube tutorial HERE. My version has a velcro closure under the flap, and I also decorated the back of the box. I used the absolutely gorgeous Artzy Doodles Bright Pumpkin paper layered on white cardstock along with the patterned strip across the top. Yes, you should keep those strips across the top of ALL D2BA papers, as they coordinate perfectly! I punched the stamped sentiment with an oval punch and layered it on a scalloped oval, and adhered a grosgrain bow.

2017_02110007a

The card bases I used are 3-1/2″ x 5″ with slightly larger envelopes, and worked perfectly for this project. I prepared the panels first – cut the white pieces and stamped the thank you sentiment on each using a stamp positioner. Then I cut slightly larger black layering pieces and adhered them all to the card bases. I then stamped each flower three times in Totally Black ink on white cardstock, then commenced to coloring each set of flowers the same. Once all the coloring was finished, I cut each flower with the coordinating die and adhered them to the card bases. I added several sparkly elements to each card for a little interest. Voila!

I can’t expresso how much you bean to me!

Hi, Dare 2B Artzy Fans!

It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness!  I hope you had a great weekend!  This post is for all the coffee lovers out there who may need a little boost to start out the new week!

Watermarked(2017-02-11-0451)

This bright card should cheer up anyone’s Monday morning!  I used the newly released Hug in a Mug stamp set with matching dies to create this fun card.  The cup image was stamped with Totally Black Hybrid Ink so I could color with Copic markers.
The Copics I used were:
R14, R05, R29
BG01, B04, B05
E35, E37, BV04
The steam die cut was colored with C1 and then clear Wink of Stella.

The sentiment was stamped on a circle with Midnight Blue Dye Ink that goes so well with the Playful Field and Butterflies paper packs!

IMG_0553

Offsetting the sentiment onto a larger navy circle added a little more dimension to the card front.  Rounding off opposite corners of the card base and the layers also added a touch of interest.  You can’t see it here, but this stamp set has some cute coffee bean images that I stamped along the bottom inside edge of the card.

I hope you have a great Monday and a fabulous week!  As always, please share any of your Dare 2B Artzy projects on Instagram using #dare2bartzy and #d2ba so we can be inspired by your creativity!

Happy stamping!
Melody
