Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  Today, I’m sharing a card that stretched my creative boundaries a bit using Totally Tracy Chipboard and the Be Bold Stamps.

For the background, I used Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink through a stencil.  For the flower, I used TH distress paint in Seedless Preserves, then stamped it in Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black ink and splattered it with white Dylusions Ink.  The center is Nuvo Drops.  Here’s a close up:

The strips of paper are from the Dare 2B Artzy, Artzy Doodles Collection.

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.

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:

Dare 2B Artzy has so many fun stamps with so many fun styles.  There’s something for everyone!  For my card today, I decided to get super inky using the Dare 2B Artzy, Totally Tracy, Be Bold Stamps!  Here’s what I did:

I love the fun and bright colors!  My niece is graduating high school soon and will be heading off to college.  This card is going to her to congratulate her on making her choice of colleges.  She is a great kid – over 4.0 GPA, cheerleader, track, etc.  So smart.  I’m very proud of her.  To create this card, I cut a watercolor cardstock into two pieces using Spellbinder’s Curved Borders.  Then I used Color Burst inks in orange and yellow on the top and in green and blue on the bottom.  I then stamped that gorgeous flower using Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Ink (great ink for watercolor or alcohol ink processes) onto another piece of watercolor cardstock.  I used Color Burst inks in pink and purple; then I fussy cut it out.  Here’s a close-up:

I really love the splatter-y effect.  I finished the card off with some seam-binding ribbon, sequins, a button and a twine bow.
