Could you use a little cheering up on this Monday morning?  If so, these brightly layered cards may be just what you need!


I am having so much fun using Dare 2B Artzy’s NEW Playful Posies Layered stamp set.  The color combinations are endless, but I chose some really bright colors to add some spirit and whimsy to the beginning of the work week!

I used my MISTI to position my stamps so while I had them positioned, I stamped four card panels using the following Dare 2B Artzy inks: Totally Black, Wild Orchid, Paradise, Sunset Yellow, and Margarita Lime.  No Copic coloring for me today!

I adhered this panel to a black card base, placed a layer of vellum over a section of it, and added the Thanks Layer Die.

I adhered the second panel to a lattice (basket weave) base.


Thanks to Kelly Acheson at Splitcoaststampers for providing directions and a template!  You can fine the template and directions HERE!

The new Friends Layer Die completed the front of my card!  I love the fonts on these new layering dies, and they align perfectly!

What should I make with my two remaining panels?  I would love to read some suggestions from all of you in the comments!
