Today I am excited to share my take on this week's Sketch from Sketches in Thyme! This one was a little outside my comfort zone as it has a lot of white space! But working outside your comfort zone is always a good thing! This layout uses the brand new papers from Dare 2 B Artzy!

Today I am super excited to share this cheery card I create with Dare 2 B Artzy's New Totally Tracy Find Your Purpose stamp set!
I started by stamping the flower image from this stamp set several times onto white cardstock filling my background piece. I then lightly outlined the flowers with Specturm Noir IB1 marker.
The little pop of color added so much to the flowers! I then colored the flower centers with my Y15 Copic marker and added accents with my Spectrum Noir GB8 marker!
I matted the flower background onto black cardstock. I stamped my greeting from the Blissful Blossoms Stamp set and matted it on black cardstock. I added a Sunshine Artzy Doodle banner and a coordinating bow to finish off the card! Hope you are inspired to get stamping!!!

Greetings! Today I am sharing this coffee card with you! This card was created for this month's Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers. To re-create this card start by cutting my Flower Power paper slightly smaller than my card base. Add a large cardstock block across the center of my card. Stamp the coffee cup and greeting from the Dare 2B Artzy Perfect Blend Stamps set onto white cardstock. ( I originally stamped the steam, but my card went off in another direction and the steam did not get used. )
Cut the greeting into a banner shape. Color the coffee cup with your favorite markers. I chose Spectrum Noir markers in TN 2, TN 3, and IB 1. Stamp cup wrap with coordinating greeting from the stamp set. Fussy cut your colored coffee mug.
Add your cup and banner greeting to the card base. Accent cardstock with doodled stitches. Hope you are inspired to get stamping and play along with the Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers.

Greetings! Today I am sharing my take on this months's Dare 2 B Artzy's Challenge. We were challenged to use Lots of Layers. When creating layouts with layers, I always struggle. I don't want my layouts that will be going into a scrapbook to be too thick. This one has at least 9 layers without too much bulk! Hop on over to the Dare 2 B Artzy blog to play along for a chance to win some awesome stamps!
