Scent With Love

 Hi Artzy friends -

Even though Valentine's Day has passed, it's always a good time to send a card to a loved one to let them know you're thinking of them! 

One of the new die cover plates that Dare 2B Artzy has recently released is this Quilted Flower Background die that can be used any time of the year and for any card to add some pretty details to your background. I love the combination of cutout flowers and pierced design in this die! And you can save the little pieces that cut out as confetti or shaker bits for a future project!

                           D166 Quilted Flower Background Die

For my card I cut my Quilted Flower background out of white cardstock, put a pink layer behind it, and matted the whole panel on dark gray. I colored and die cut this cute skunk with his flower pot from the Stinking' Happy stamps and dies and popped him up on my card panel.  I  also stamped my sentiment from the same set on a white strip and adhered that to my card.

The February challenge on the Dare 2B Artzy blog is Love. Link up your love themed card here, any time this month, for a chance to win a $15 gift card to Dare 2B Artzy.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Love Under the Sea

Hi Artzy friends -
For my pre Valentine's Day card, I thought I'd use some new Dare 2B Artzy products, along with some older products, to create a mini slim love themed card. I think this card will be going to my husband, either for Valentine's Day, or our anniversary.

I started by creating my card base and cutting the two panels for my card front with the Slim Mini Wavy Layers dies. My wavy edged panel, cut out of paper from the Make Waves collection, seemed perfect to me for an under the sea card.

I stamped, colored, and diecut two of the jellyfish from the new Jellyfish stamps and die sets, and popped them up on either side of my die cut "love you" cut with the Love You Double Layered Word die.

The sentiment inside my card is from the Seahorses stamp set, another new set in the Make Waves collection of products. I cut rectangular panels with the Rectangle Framelits dies.

To complete my project I created an envelope to coordinate with my card out of papers from the Make Waves collection, using the Slim Mini Envelope dies.

I love how fun and easy it is to create a coordinating envelope for my mini slimline cards!

I hope you have a chance to check out all of the amazing new products from Dare 2B Artzy - there is so much to choose from! 

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
