Winter Scene Card

 Hi Crafty friends -

Today I have a quick Christmas card to share with you using Kat Scrappiness dies.

To create this slimline card I first ink blended a background panel with various shades of blue Distress Oxide inks. I cut two die cuts with the Forest for the Trees dies, once with white cardstock and once with kraft. One die cuts the snowdrift with the trees plus the frame so I was able to use the two colors for my card.

I added some touches of Distress ink to the birch trees to give them a more realistic look. I stamped my sentiment and adhered the die cut as well as the kraft frame to my inked background panel.

I cut my trees and the deer using dies from the Crafters Essentials Winter die set. This set also includes snow drifts, and a pretty swirly snowy cut and embossed background die. I glued these elements to my card, and added a few random snowflakes to my background using a white gel pen. 

I hope you enjoyed this pretty winter scene that can be used for any occasion during the season merely by changing the sentiment you use.

Hippo Birdie Mini Slimline

Hi Crafty friends-

Today I want to share my first project as a Kat Scrappiness Influencer.  Kat Scrappiness is an online paper crafting shop that carries supplies from many different brands, as well as their own. The Kat Scrappiness exclusive brand is best known for a great selection of dies, geared towards making card of several sizes, as well as an amazing selection of embellishments for your shaker and other cards. Of course you can also find stamps, paper, and other cardmaking supplies.

From time to time I will be sharing projects I create featuring Kat Scrappiness branded products.

This card is actually remade from an older birthday card I had in my stash with some cute Lawn Fawn images. I cut a blue frame with the largest of the new Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline dies, and I trimmed my card panel down to fit behind it and mounted it on a mini slimline size card base

I really enjoy making mini slimline size cards and Kat Scrappiness has two die sets to create mini slimline envelopes. I used the Snail Mail Envelope dies to create an envelope to fit my card out of double sided patterned paper. 

The die set comes with 3 round seal dies, snail mail word dies, a banner die, and a double stitched inside frame die which I used on the front of my envelope as a place to write the address of my recipient.

Christmas Tags

Hi Artzy friends - 

Dare 2B Artzy has some unique  nested shape dies that make great tags!

Both tags feature ornaments from the Deck the Halls stamp and die sets. I colored the ornaments with Copic markers and added some detail with Sakura Glaze pens to add a little shine.  The background papers are part of the Merry and Bright collection.
The Happy Holidays stamp is included in the Reindeer Games stamp set, and is stamped on the smallest die in the Rectangle Framelits die set.

The first tag base was created with 2 sizes of the Oval Scalloped Framelits dies.

My second tag base was created with 2 sizes of Rectangle Fancy Framelits dies.

This month's challenge on the Dare 2B Artzy blog is Tags and Bookmarks and we hope you'll join us!

Silver Bells

 Hi Artzy friends -

Happy November! The time has come to get to work on holiday cards, and today I have a slimline Christmas card to share using some pretty Dare 2B Artzy products.

The Joy to the World stamps and dies are great to use for relatively quick cards as these pretty images require no coloring! They can be stamped with any colored inks you may have, but I chose to heat emboss my bells with silver embossing powder. I love to emboss 2 or even 3 times to create a really dimensional metallic look, like I did here. My sentiment was also embossed in silver.

I also popped my bells up with fun foam, cutting the foam with the coordinating die. I wish you could see the dimension!

The other dies I used to create this card were from the Rectangle Slimline Framelit dies and the Wavy Squares Framelit dies. 

The background paper is from the Merry and Bright collection.

I hope your holiday cards are coming along and that you're finding Dare 2B Artzy products to help!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
