Happy Sunday, crafty friends! Guest designer, Leslie Turner from Love To Scrap 2, is back with us today to share another card!


Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy GD inspiration project with you today, a fun CAS friendship card using the Perfect Blend stamp set Coffee Cup die, scraps from several papers from the Artzy Doodles Variety Paper Pack and Totally Black ink. I’m absolutely loving this October guest designer gig and playing with more D2BA stamps!

I know I said the card I created for my last post was one of the most fun cards I’ve made in a while, but this one runs a close second. Super fun and super easy! And yep, you guessed it… another clean and simple creation! I shied away from them for so long, now I can’t get enough of them, lol! I stuck with the October challenge theme of Fall Colors and used Halloween colors of black, orange, purple and green! I prepared the card base and rounded the lower right corner. I cut a strip of white cardstock and rounded the two right-hand corners, then layered it on green cardstock and adhered it to the card base for a little interest.

I stamped the coffee cup three times on a small piece of cardstock and cut each one with the coffee cup die. I stamped the coffee cup again on small scraps from three of the papers in the Artzy Doodles Variety Paper Pack, making sure to get the cup wrapper centered on the scrap. I fussy cut each cup wrapper and adhered them to the white die cut coffee cups. I stamped a sentiment on one of them, then adhered them with foam pads to the front. I finished the card with dots of English Mustard Crystal Drops and a few Pewter sequins.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will link up a creation with us this month using Fall Colors! Be sure to check out all the fun stamps, dies, inks and papers at Dare2BArtzy! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time!

Hi everyone! Tonya here from Krafty Enchantments.com  I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far and that you’re finding ways to stay cool! I am not a summer person at all. I am good for about a week of 90+ temps and then beyond that I am ready for fall/winter again. It has been hot, hot, hot here in Colorado with temperatures in the 90 degrees the past few weeks which has me daydreaming about fall and cooler weather.

I am back today to share a fun Dare 2B Artzy card to today that will have you thinking about the tropics, at least it did me.

I started off by coloring the gorgeous flower from the new Wishing Happiness stamp set. This set has some beautiful, larger flowers which are great for coloring and showcasing all kinds of techniques. For my flower, I stamped it with some Dare to Be Artzy Totally Black ink and colored it with my Copic Markers. With our July challenge in mind I decided to color it with some bright yellow-greens, turquoise and pink colors. I love that with the larger flowers like this you can really get some good depth and detail in your coloring regardless of whether you are using your favorite alcohol markers or your colored pencils.

Once I’d finished coloring my flower, I was able to fussy cut it out and set it aside. Next, I stamped and colored two sets of the leaves from the Wishing Happiness stamp set. Again, I colored with my Copic markers choosing some complimentary bright colors and not the traditional colors of leaves. Who says leaves can’t be turquois and orangey-yellow right? Once I’d finished coloring them I fussy cut them out as well.

Once all of my images were colored, I was ready to move on to creating a background. I’d recently picked up a fun frame die from Reverse Confetti called Hello Square. It caught my eye because the sentiment was attached to the fun frame. The frame measures about 4 ¼ x 4 ¼.  I decided to use this die to cut a piece of my Dare 2B Artzy cardstock from the Artzy Doodles Variety Paper Pack. This paper is a gorgeous shade of teal-green which really complimented my colored images. I used the die to cut two of the frames; one from the Artzy Doodles paper and one from a piece of 80 lb white cardstock. I was excited that the polka dot edge of the Artzy Doodles paper lined up perfectly so I was able to incorporate that little polka dot border into the card design. I like the touch of variety it gives.

I wanted the hello from the die cut frame to stand out. To do that, I used a T-ruler to draw a faint pencil line along the bottom of the hello sentiment on the frame so that it would have a straight edge. I was then able to use my scissors to cut the hello off the frame. I was then able to take that hello and glue it on top of my frame that I cut from the Artzy Doodles paper.  The white hello that I’d removed from the frame worked out beautifully once I’d glued it over the attached hello cut from the Artzy Doodles paper. It is hard to tell that it was even from a separate die cut. Once the glue had dried, I used some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen over the white letters for some shimmer.

Finally, I was able to pull out my Distress Oxide inks to get inky and create a beautiful backdrop for my Dare 2B Artzy flower and the frame. I die cut a piece of 80 lb white cardstock from a square die that measured about 4 ¾ x 4 ¾.  Once cut, I used my ink blending took to sponge on and blend; Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers, onto the white cardstock. I started with the Fossilized Amber and moved my way through the colors until I had a smooth transition of color. I did go back over the Amber and Marmalade a bit more to deepen the colors. Once I was finished, I spritzed some water into my hand and flicked and dropped it onto my background to activate the ink/water magic. It created some great water drops on the background which gave it some added interest. I set it aside to let the water drops dry completely before assembling my card.

My card base measured 5 x 10 and was scored at the middle point to create a top folding card base. Once my background was dry, I added some dimensional foam to my distress ink blended square. Next, I used some 1/8 inch adhesive tape on the back of the frame and on the hello letters to make sure it would adhere to my background. The adhesive tape worked better because the sections of the frame were too narrow for any kind of glue runner and I didn’t want to have liquid glue everywhere.  I left the top portion of the H without any adhesive tape on it so that I would be able to slide my flower in underneath the sentiment.

Once I had removed all the backing from the adhesive tape, I positioned my frame over the background and made sure it was straight before pressing it down onto the background layer.  Next, with a small amount of Ranger glossy Accents added to the back of the flower and leaves; I slid my flower in under the H in hello and over the upper right corner of the frame and then tucked one set of my colored leaves behind the flower. I decided to only use one set of leaves as I felt that two would have been too much.

Finally, I added some iridescent sequins to the front of the card for some extra sparkle. I love how they reflect the many different colors on my card. I think the iridescent sequins are my new favorites.

I think with all the wonderful bright colors and the gorgeous Dare 2B Artzy flower from the Wishing Happiness my card certainly fits the July Challenge, but it turned out to have a bit of a tropical feel as well which I really love.

Don’t forget that there are a few more days left in the July Challenge so you still have some time to create something bright and submit it for your chance to win a Dare 2B Artzy stamp and Ink pad of your choice. You could even grab the stamp set I have used today and create your own tropical themed card. I’ve added a link here so you can check out all the details of the challenge: Dare 2B Artzy Challenge Bright Colors July 2017.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card and it’s inspired you to do something Artzy today!

Have a great day!

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.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a clean and simple get well card done in bright colors that are sure to make anyone feel better! I used the absolutely amazing Butterfly Tangle stamp set, Butterfly die, Midnight Blue and Totally Black inks and Artzy Doodles Midnight Blue paper. OMG, all of the Artzy Doodles papers are on my list of favorites!

I stamped the butterfly in Totally Black ink on the white background panel which I layered on the Midnight Blue paper and adhered to the card base. I stamped the butterfly again on a smaller piece of the white cardstock and colored both stamped images identically. I cut the butterfly that I stamped on the smaller piece of cardstock with the coordinating die, bent the wings slightly and layered it onto the background panel. I put a couple smaller pieces of clear 3-D foam pad under the wings for dimension. I stamped the sentiment in the Midnight Blue ink and added some randomly placed sequins.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a mixed media encouragement card I created using the Dream Catcher and Dream Big stamp sets, Wild Orchid ink and the top strip from Artzy Doodles Wild Orchid paper.

2017_02260001a

A fellow teammate inspired me to play with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. This dream catcher image is perfect for watercoloring so I heat embossed it in white and proceeded to get inky! I painted the entire background with a watered-down purple color and flicked darker purple spots all over it, then colored the inside of the dream catcher and used Crystal Drops to resemble beads. I inked around the outside edges with distress ink and flicked white paint around the outside of the dream catcher. The finished panel is layered on silver mirror cardstock. Fun, fun, fun!

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!

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a love-themed card created in traditional red with a pop of yellow and orange. I used the awesome Cup of Cheer stamp set along with the coordinating Mug die, Totally Black ink and Artzy Doodles Pomegranate paper (from the Variety Pack).

2017_02030004a

I had such a good time putting this card together! I felt like it needed some hearts so I started with a large inlaid die cut heart on the front which I backed with yellow cardstock, then added the die cuts, the fun patterned strip from the edge of the Artzy Doodles paper and the sentiment. Oh, and we can’t forget the sequins! I do love sequins!

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours!
Have you seen the adorable dog and cat stamps at Dare 2B Artzy??!  They are perfect for all the pet lovers in your life – or for thanking those that help you with your pets!  We have to leave our pup at a kennel if we are going to see fireworks (since it’s terrifying for him).  We love his kennel, so I make them a thank you card every now and then.  Like this one made with Dare 2B Artzy Puppy Talk and Pet Lovers stamps and Dare 2B Artzy, Artzy Doodles Paper:
D2B_bowwow

Seriously, LoVe this set.  I colored the pup with the following Copic Colors.

Copic Colors used:
Dog:  E31, E33, E35, E4
Collar:  B95, B97, RV66, RV69
To add some fun texture to the dog’s fur, I lightly sprayed a piece of a washcloth with blending solution and dabbed it on the colored image.    I also “colored” his eyes with some glossy accents and added some Zig Wink of Stella to the heart on his collar.  Check it out close-up.

And for the inside, the perfect sentiment – don’t you think?.
