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


Hi everyone! Leslie here to share my final Dare2BArtzy GD inspiration project for the month with you today, a Christmas card using the You’ve Got Mail stamp set, Mailbox Gift Card Holder die and Winter Plaid paper. I’ve had a great time guest designing this month along side the D2BA DT and providing you inspiration! Thank you, ladies!

Okay, since my three previous GD projects this month have all been clean and simple, I created something with lots of distressing and tons of layers… my kind of card, lol! Can’t tell you how much fun this was! I created a card base slightly larger than A2 size (to accommodate the mail box die cut) and distressed the edges. I layered a distressed piece of the Winter Plaid paper on green cardstock, added a piece of crocheted lace and a scalloped border across the bottom, then adhered the entire panel to the card base.

I created the mail box using the die, stamped the sentiment on it, distressed it a bit, and added the flag with a tiny brad. Then I created a tiny envelope with a red heart closure (dies also in the mailbox die set), distressed it and adhered it in the mailbox. I went through my Tim Holtz Idea-ology Festive Ephemera Pack and picked out several pieces to use on this card, and distressed them all. I added a couple poinsettias from the pack to the upper left corner and proceeded to ‘stuff’ the mailbox full of all kinds of fun goodies! The finishing touch was a simple bow on the mail box.

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.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy GD inspiration project with you today, a fun CAS birthday card using the Birthday Balloons stamp set with coordinating Balloon die that comes with the stamp set. I’m having a blast being back as a guestie for the month of October!

This was probably one of the most fun cards I’ve made in a while. It’s super simple and really packs a big punch! As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been creating more clean and simple cards which have always been a challenge for me. I stamped the balloon cluster, strings and stars on the front of the card base. Can you believe it… yes, this is a one-layer card! LOL! I then stamped three individual balloons in different colors on a smaller piece of cardstock and cut each of them with the balloon die.

I colored the balloons  and the stars with a Crystal Clear Sparkle marker which gave them a really pretty shimmer. I finished the front of the card with a few sequins. Yes, I am a sequin freak too, lol! And didn’t this turn out just darling?!

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! We have a new guest designer for the month of October!

Please help us give a warm welcome to Leslie Turner from Love To Scrap 2!

Hi, my name is Leslie Turner. I’m married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland – before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I’m addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and mini albums. I’ve been known to alter a few tins and boxes, and enjoy beading and making jewelry occasionally when I find time. I’m absolutely thrilled to be back as a guest designer for Dare 2B Artzy!


Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy GD inspiration project with you today, a get well card using the Restore the Soul stamp set and the Duck/Fish die set. I’m totally stoked to be back as a guestie for the month of October!

I used a color palette to coincide with the October “Fall Colors” challenge – brown, red, orange, yellow, green and purple. I’ve been getting my feet more and more wet with clean and simple cards lately. CAS has always been a challenge for me because I love colors, layers and big bows! I stamped the cattails and sentiment in Rich Cocoa ink on the card front, and then stamped the mama and baby duck twice on a smaller piece of cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut the ducks from the first image and the mama duck’s wing from the second image. I colored both pieces and adhered the wing to the mama duck with a dimensional pad.

I adhered mama and her baby to the card front, then colored the water. I layered the panel on yellow cardstock and then adhered it to the card base. I added ripples in the water with White Blizzard Crystal Drops and some randomly placed dots at the top with Dark Walnut Crystal Drops.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a fun flower sandal using three papers from the Fields of Joy Collection Paper Pack – Orange Plaid, Hoot Hoot and Owls & Flowers. This is my last post for the Dare 2B Artzy design team and I thank these ladies for this amazing opportunity – I’ve had a great time! I’ll be back in a few months as a guestie!

Cindy, owner of Dare 2B Artzy, asked me to create a sandal for her to take to craft shows for display, and this adorable sandal is what I came up with. I created a flip flop template several years ago that I use to make the flip flops and other sandals in my paper shoe collection which you can find HERE if you’re interested in looking. This sandal has a heel, however, and the others do not (template has no heel) but I will soon update my template to include the optional heel.

Hard to believe there is no stamping on this project. Just gorgeous paper. I targeted a pink and red flower and cut out several of them to layer the different pieces. I added some clear Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the largest pink layer and several tiny silver seed beads (adhered with the Crystal Drops) to the center of the flower for a ‘jeweled’ effect.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a fun clutch purse that holds a set of four cards. I used the amazing Paisley Bliss stamp set, Paisley paper and Totally Black ink. SO much fun!

The purse was fashioned from a single sheet of Paisley paper (it’s double-sided 12 x 12 paper) with a few simple folds. My inspiration came from a YouTube tutorial I found several months ago and fell in love with… you can see it HERE. This is the second set I’ve created and the possibilities are literally endless! I stamped the “Creativity takes courage” quote (which I absolutely love) on the front flap which I decorated with the strip from the top of the paper and some thin strips of navy blue cardstock, and a vintage button. I stamped the large paisley from the Paisley Bliss stamp set on a scrap piece of white cardstock, scanned it and cut it with my Scan N Cut, and colored it with three Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The Zig colors were pretty bright so I layered a piece of thick vellum (also cut with the Scan N Cut using the same scanned paisley shape) to mute the colors. I used this as an accent on the bottom of the flap.

This is the set of four cards, all stamped with that awesome quote and several paisley stamps, and colored with the same three Zig markers.  I even stamped and colored a small paisley on the envelopes! I added a layer of the vellum (to mute the colors), several sequins and a hand-cut flag with a tiny button to each card.

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a Dare2BArtzy DT inspiration project with you today, a CAS beach-themed card created with the amazing Flip Flops stamp set, Midnight Blue, Margarita Lime and Paradise ink, and a thin strip of the reverse side of the Chevron paper used on the inside. I LOVE a blue and green color combo!

I stamped the beach chair in the Margarita Lime ink and the sentiment in the Midnight Blue ink. I adhered the stamped panel to some fun foam for a little dimension and layered it on a blue panel which I adhered to the card base.

Using a Spectrum Noir marker, I colored in the word “Tide” and added a few sequins matching the colors used on the inside.

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!
