Bear Hugs

Hi Artzy Friends!

Today I have a card for you that I created with the Honey Bears stamp set. This sweet set is all about bears, honey, and bees, and is perfect for so many occasions.

I created a bib card, using a precut card base. 

These bears are fun to color to coordinate with pretty paper from the All the Buzz collection.

The little bee is super cute too. I added some sparkle to his wings, although I don't think it photographed very well.

Sending you all (Bear) hugs! 

Be sure to join the current month's challenge on the Dare 2B Artzy blog. The theme is In the Garden, and you will have a chance to win a $15 gift card if you enter.   

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

Coffee Lovers Hop May 2020

It's time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop, and I am excited to be participating with Dare 2B Artzy!

I created this card with the Dare 2B Artzy Cup of Cheer stamp set.

I added some shimmer to the cups to make them extra "cheery"

I'm missing my friends right now, so this cup of cheer goes out to all of you virtually!

Be sure to hop along with us! One lucky person who comments on the Dare 2B Artzy blog will win a $15 gift card.

Puppy Kisses Thanks

Hi Artzy friends!

Today I am sharing another card I created with the Puppy Kisses stamp set. This sweet little pup can be used for many different occasions.  I needed a thank you card and this was the perfect image! 

I was fortunate that one of the first dogs my dog groomer chose to take care of once she was able to begin working again after the quarantine was mine. I have been much more worried about getting her groomed than I was about my own hair! (I just have an inch wide gray stripe at my part - it's fine! Haha!) 

This cutie looks a little bit like my dog at her "fluffiest" 

The word "thanks" is actually adhered to the inside of the card, and peeks through a little window.

I hope you are all staying safe, and staying Artzy!

Please stop by the Dare 2B Artzy blog and enter the current month's challenge, whose theme is In the Garden. You can also find all of the wonderful Dare 2B Artzy stamps and dies here.

Dare 2B Artzy May challenge - In the Garden

Hi Artzy friends!

This month's theme for the challenge on the Dare 2B Artzy blog is "In the Garden."  Check out the details here and enter to win a gift card from Dare 2B Artzy!

I have two In the Garden themed cards to share with you. The first one is a Mother's Day slimline card I created with the Flowers for Mom stamps and dies. The flowers in this set are so much fun to color in whatever colors make you happy! I was feeling very "citrusy" when I created this card! Haha!
The sentiment is from the Bouquet 4 You stamp set.

My next card was made with the flower pot image from the Bouquet 4 You stamp set.
I created a simple watercolor background and stamped the image in black ink for a quick, fun, no coloring required card. I cut my watercolor panel and turquoise layer with the Rectangle Fancy Framelits dies.

I hope the month of May brings lots of beautiful flowers to you! 

You can find many floral images and other stamps that remind you of the warmer days ahead at

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
