Hi D2BA friends!

Tasha here sharing a festive gift bag created with the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set

and new Merry Christmas Layer Die Set!

The shaker was created with D2BA pattern paper and I stamped multiple snowflake images on the inside card to give a fun wintery look. The “Warm” and “Wishes” words were stamped in a dark gray ink color to allow it to stand out.

The “Christmas” word was die cut from rose gold paper and adhered to the plastic layer. The sparkle is so pretty in the light and I like the pink and blue color combination. To continue with the same winter wonderland colors, I added metallic silver and opal sequins. They add tons of shimmer and match the top of the bag perfectly!

lastly, I added a little bow to the top made from silver snowflake paper and attached a glittery snowman embellishment to the center. Clear opal tissue was also added to the inside of the bag to complete the project.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and are inspired to create some gift bags this holiday season!

Hello, Friends!
It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Now it’s time to finish all those Christmas cards and get them in the mail!

Today’s card uses the newly released Merry Christmas Die from Dare 2B Artzy.

I die cut the Christmas lights from card stock and the ornamental top from gold card stock.  After adhering these two pieces, I covered the bulbs with Wink of Stella.  I wish my photo captured all that glittery goodness!

I stamped the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Tangle Stamp Set and cut it out using the coordinating Poinsettia Die.  The sentiment was stamped with Pomegranate Ink using a fabulous sentiment from the Tis the Season Stamp Set.  After stringing the Christmas bulbs onto some red and white twine, I mounted them to the card front using foam tape for extra added dimension.

This Merry Christmas Layer Die is one of many beautiful layering dies available from Dare 2B Artzy.  You can see even more of them HERE!

If you haven’t entered the November Gratitude Challenge, there is still time!  The challenge ends on Saturday, December 2.  The randomly drawn winner gets to choose a D2BA stamp set and ink pad!

Happy stamping!

Greeting Chris here and today I am super excited to share my card with you!   You can even see that cute sled I created for last week’s Blog Hop in the background.   My oldest daughter is an “OWL” nut so I love collecting owl stamps to create things for her!

To re-create this card you will need

D2BA Owl Be Home 4 Xmas Stamp Set

D2BA Totally Black Ink

D2BA Tis the Season – Holly Days paper

Markers (I used Chameleon RD3, NV3, NV4, BR5)

and jute, and green and white  cardstock.

I started out by stamping the Owl  and greeting from with the D2BA Owl Be Home 4 Xmas Stamp Set using the D2BA Totally Black Ink onto white cardstock.

I then Colored my Owl with my Chameleon markers and then fussy cut him out.


I added the D2BA Tis the Season – Holly Days paper to my card base and then matted a piece of the same paper (using the “b” side of the paper) onto green cardstock and added it to my card.  I attached my Owl and matted greeting and finished the card with a simple jute bow!


Hope you are inspired to get stamping!!!!

The Dare 2B Artzy Challenge this month is about gratitude.  Have you joined yet?  You should!  There’s a chance to win a fabulous prize!  We are grateful to you, our customers!  You are simply wonderful….like this card says:
I used leaves from the Embrace stamp collection and another leaf, a flower and the sentiment from the Blissful Blooms stamp collection.  To create the background, I randomly stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and wet embossed using Ranger gold embossing powder.  Then I inked up with several Distress Oxide Inks (Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey and Walnut Ink.  Then I colored the flower with C1, YG00, Yg03, YG06, YR12, YR14, YR16, Y13, Y15 and Y18.

Craftily yours,

Hi all – Vicki here.  Today, I made a Christmas card.

I did some alcohol ink playing and loved it so much, I turned it into an ornament. [I just cut out a circle from the inked panel I had made.]  The Merry Christmas Layered Die is a new die available at Dare 2B Artzy.  I totally am loving the mixed font of this die.  [The price is very reasonable too!]

That’s it for me today.  I think I will be making a few more of these cards.  They are very easy to mass produce!

How are your Christmas cards coming along?

See you next month~

Hello Dare 2B Artzy Friends

It is Pam crafting with you today!  This is one of my last cards that I made for Christmas this year and in fact I am going to make several of them because I really love how it turned out and there wasn’t any copic coloring involved.

Design Steps:

  1. Use a cream colored A2 card base. Cut a piece of gold metallic card stock 4 1/8 x 5 1/4 and glue to the card front
  2. Cut a piece of cream card stock 4 x 5 1/8 and run it through an embossing folder but do not  glue to the front of the card yet
  3. Next use the Mini Ornament Die from Dare 2B Artzy and cut out 3 ornaments out of the gold metallic card stock.  Then using the top of the Christmas Bulb cut out 3 pieces out of silver card stock.
  4. Glue the ornaments together and attach the gold cord
  5. Place small dimension dots to the backs of the ornaments and pop to the card front.  Next tape the gold card behind the embossed cream colored piece of card stock then glue the cream card  stock to the card front
  6. Stamp the sentiment from the Ornament Tangle stamp set and layer it onto the gold card stock and then glue to card front as shown

BUT, before I do that a quick reminder that we have an awesome challenge going on (there is one every month you know 😉) This month is all about Gratitude. Make sure to submit your work for a chance to win!


On to my new craze! I have been playing with fabric and die cuts. The Dare 2B Artzy Poinsettia die cuts work perfectly for the process. Here is one of the fabulous flowers I created:

So easy, I treated the fabric with a stabilizer then ran it through my die cut machine. I have been putting these lovelies on all sorts of projects but here is a SUPER SIMPLE card that a couple landed on:

Dare 2B Artzy has all sorts of beautiful dies to choose from and you can use them with the coordinating stamps on their own for a completely different look!

Make sure to take a look at all of Dare 2B Artzy’s wonderful holiday options!

For today’s creation all I needed was the Poinsettia Die!


Thank you for joining us today and hope to see you again soon! Have a Happy Colorful Day!

Hello Dare 2B Artzy friends! It’s Tonya from Krafty Enchantments. I am back today with a quick holiday card to share with you.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been following Kristina Werners blog. Every year about this time she does a video series for her holiday cards! I love to see what interesting card designs she comes up with and my card today was inspired by one of her holiday cards.

For this card, I had to dig through my Dare 2B Artzy stamps to find the perfect stamps to create a wreath. Initially I chose the little branch that comes with the Poinsettia Tangle stamp set but it didn’t work quite like I’d hoped.

Instead, I used the cute little branch from the Tis the Season stamp set.

To create my wreath, I used a 4 inch circle die as a template and drew a faint circle onto some white cardstock with a pencil. This gave me a path to follow when stamping the wreath shape.

Next, I pulled out 4 different colors of green ink. All of the ink was from different stamp companies, but I tried to pick colors that complimented each other well and also gave the appearance of the greens that you would see in an actual wreath. With my darkest color, I stamped the branch an equal distance around my circle. As I stamped each image I would turn the image towards the inside of the wreath circle slightly or towards the outside of the wreath circle. I even stamped a couple of times so that the center branch lined up with the line of my circle. I continued stamping each of the colors in the same way around my circle until it resembled a wreath.

To create the little red berries or ornaments on the wreath image – not sure which it would be, I found the perfect Dare 2B Artzy stamp set. The Doodle Flowers stamp has a perfect dot stamp that turned out to be the perfect size. To use it, I brushed on some anti-static powder across the entire wreath and placed it into my MISTI. Next, I used some Versamark ink and stamped the dot and then repositioned it and re-inked it and stamped again until I had several stamped images around the wreath. Finally, I sprinkled on my red embossing powder and heat set it. I love that it works perfectly with the branches.

For my sentiment, I used the Poinsettia Tangle stamp set. I just love the sentiments in this set. I positioned the stamp in the center of my wreath using my MISTI and stamped and heat embossed it with some Champagne embossing powder. I like the color of this embossing powder because it looks gold, but isn’t quite as brassy as gold embossing powder.

Next, it was on to creating the base for my card. To do that I used the 5 inch circle die and a piece of my favorite Dare 2B Artzy holiday paper which is plaid and layered that into my die cutting machine with one edge of the circle not completely covered by the cutting mat. This gave me a circle card with a top fold since the top edge wasn’t cut. I cut a second piece out of some white cardstock for the inside panel of the card. I adhered the inside panel to the card base with some score tape.

To finish the card I used some Versamark ink and ran the ink pad around the edge of my wreath and also the edge of my car base and sprinkled on some more Champaign embossing powder to give it just a hint of a golden shimmer to the edge of the card. I think it finishes the card nicely.

I used a little Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on some of the wreath branches to give them an extra bit of shimmer.

I think this would be a great card to make in large quantities because it actually comes together really quickly. You could easily do an assembly line to make these cards with friends and family.

I had a lot of fun finding new ways in which to use my Dare 2B Artzy stamps to create this card inspired by Kristina Werner.  It really makes me look at my stamps in new ways and find other ways to be creative with some of my images.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on a holiday wreath card. Be sure to check out all of Dare 2B Artzy’s holiday stamps and papers available in the shop and be sure to stay tuned for the awesome hop coming up this weekend with the entire Dare 2B Artzy team.
