Dreams Come True

Hi!  Chris here and today I am sharing this adorable card I created using Dare 2B Artzy's new papers and Stamps! To create this card I started by matting 2 pieces of the Blissful Bloom paper (the A and B sides) onto dark blue card stock and then attached it to my card base.  I then stamped the Dream Catcher from the Dream Big Stamp Set onto white card stock.  I then used a scalloped circle punch to punch out the dream catcher and matted the scalloped circle on silver scalloped circle and then a dark blue scalloped circle. I added the scalloped circle onto the bottom of the card. I stamped my greeting from the Dream Big set and double matted the greeting onto the silver and then the blue card stock.  You can see how the tiny bit of silver really makes everything POP!

  I finished off the card by adding a silver bow and a white paper flower.  I did use a Tim Holtz Distress Marker to tint the edges of the flower!   I hope you are inspired to get stamping!

Dare 2 B Artzy Modern Bliss Papers

1012awm Hi Chris here!  Today I would like to share a layout I created using the Brand New Dare 2B Artzy Stamps and papers! To create this layout I started by stamping the Flower from the Blissful Blooms stamp set using the Premium Midnight Blue ink.  I then created the "leaves" by stamping the Paisley from the Paisley Bliss stamp set. I fussy cut both the flowers and the leaves. img_4095 I placed the matted photos onto my background which I created using the Modern Bliss papers - Botanical Breeze and Paisley. The thin blue polka dot strip is a bonus "cut away" strip on the Paisley paper.  After adding my stamped flowers and leaves as accents I created my title block using the "Beautiful" stamp from the Big Bloom Stamp set. Using my scraps I created this coordinating card using the Thinking of You stamp from the Blissful Blooms stamp set. 1012bwm
 Hope you are inspired to get stamping!

Dare 2B Artzy Challenge- Fall

Hi Today I am sharing my take on this month's Dare 2B Artzy's monthly challenge.  The theme  is Fall!  To create this card I started with kraft cardstock, Dare 2B Artzy Texture A stamp set, Tim Holtz Distress Cardstock, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks ( Forrest Moss, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber, & Fired Brick).

I started by stamping my image onto kraft cardstock.
 I then stamped my image onto a piece a leftover cardstock and fussy cut out the image to use as a mask. I placed the "mask" over the stamped image and stamped the leave in another color.

You can see below how this creates a layered image.

I continued stamping until my entire card was filled up.

 I then matted the card and added my greeting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps. I hope you enjoyed this technique!
