Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!!!

We have a new Guest Designer for the month of June!!

Please help us give a warm welcome to LeeAnn, from Mimi’s Crafty Abyss!!

First, let’s learn a little bit more about this talented designer:

My name is LeeAnn and I live in Central Florida. I am a wife, mom, and Mimi. I love spending my time in craft room creating cards for friends, family, and the local children’s hospitals. I attended a scrapbook party in 1998 and with 3 active daughters was immediately hooked. I became a consultant for several years then with life’s twists and turns I got away from my crafting. 10 years later I received news that I was going to be a Mimi and the crafting bug came back and has been very strong since. I am very excited for this opportunity to work with Dare 2 B Artzy as it is one of the teams I have longed to work with. Thank you so much, and I hope you enjoy my projects.


Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today in my guest spot with Dare 2 Be Artzy. I really have had a great time with these stamps and dies, and appreciate the opportunity to work with them.
Today I used the Flip Flops stamp and die sets in my project.

In order to make this project, I first ran the top half of my card topper through my Big Shot inside a Darice embossing folder to get the cloud feature. I stamped the chair on a piece of green cardstock and then ran it through the big shot as well using the die from the set.

When this was complete I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to create the cloudy sky. I used Dried Marigold to create the beach sand look and Mermaid Lagoon to create the water. With a swiping back and forth motion I created it to appear there were white caps on the water as the tide was coming in. With a big wave of the water washing over the the shoreline. I used Bahama blue to stamp the sentiment and cut with my trimmer to size, adhered with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and I really think this needs to be a beach day.
