Happy first Monday of Fall, Stampers!
It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram!
As you know, I’m a gal who loves a bright color or two, but today I’m sharing a card completely done in black and white!

I began by stamping flowers from Flowers for Mom and Wishing Happiness with a WOW! Embossing Pad onto black card stock which I had prepared with an embossing buddy.  I stamped the flower in the upper left corner of the card twice as the coordinating die set allows the cutting of multiple flower layers. The flowers and leaves were then embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

The dies cut out the images perfectly!  I was then able to use foam tape to create layered dimension on the flower shown above.  Stamping a sentiment from the Flowers for Mom set with Totally Black Ink completed my card.  I am blessed to have many friends to whom I could send this card!  The terrific part is that I can make several of these cards as they can be created in a short amount of time!

Please don’t forget to enter your cards in this month’s Dare 2B Artzy Challenge!  The next challenge begins on Sunday, and I don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

Happy stamping!

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.

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!
