Purse Gift Card Holder

 Hi Artzy friends -

Today I am sharing a gift card holder that I made for a friend using the new Purse Gift Card Holder dies, along with some other new dies, stamps, stencils and papers, and some older but so cute sentiment stamps!

I created my purse using papers from the Everything is Blooming collection. The Breezy Blossoms stamps, stencil and dies coordinate beautifully with this paper. I stenciled a flower image from the set, die cut it, and popped it up on my purse front.

I love that the purse gift card holder dies are designed to pull up a little pocket to tuck your gift card in (or a little note, etc), yet it's so easy to put together!

I added two little tags from the new Mini Gift Tags die set, and created little "faux shaker tags" by cutting a frame and layering it on top a solid tag die cut, with a piece of acetate between them. The sentiments are from the Pet Lover stamp set and worked perfectly for my gift! 

Stop by the Dare 2B Artzy store to see all of the beautiful new products! 

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

Dare 2B Artzy Instagram Hop

 Hi Artzy friends -

The designers for Dare 2B Artzy are having an Instagram hop this weekend to showcase some of our newly released product. Please join us for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Dare 2B Artzy store. You can also take 10% off your entire purchase all weekend long!

I created two cards with the new Potted Posies stamp and die sets.

Both cards also feature paper from the new Everything is Blooming collection.

My first card is an A2 size. I have no idea what this fold is called but I received a card folded similarly from a friend and I had to try it! It's simple to create but I thought it was unique; and it provides a great opportunity for layering with the beautiful new papers! I used a die from the  Rectangle Framelits to pop my image up onto. The "happiness" sentiment is also from Potted Posies.

My second card is a mini slimline card. I used the dies from the Slim Mini Flower Patch die set to cut my layers for this 6" x 3 1/4" card. The "thank you" is another sentiment included in the Potted Posies stamp set.

I hope you'll hop over to Instagram to see what the other Artzy designers have created with the newest products from Dare 2B Artzy!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Beautiful Day

 Hi Artzy friends -

Today I am sharing a slimline card created with some fun new Dare 2B Artzy products.

Most of us know that for many Dare 2B Artzy stamp and die sets, there is paper that also coordinates and you can cut many of the images right out of the paper - no stamping, no coloring, easy peasy!

Now we have another product to add to the Breezy Blossoms images that make an additionalway to create a beautiful card with no coloring! Check out the Breezy Blossom Stencil! Dare 2B Artzy has made it easy to line up and rotate the stencil with your stamped images to create these fun florals in any colors you like! 

I die cut the images twice, once out of fun foam, and mounted my stenciled images on the foam to add dimension to my card.

The patterned paper, cut with a die from Wavy Slimline Framelit dies, is from the new Everything is Blooming paper collection.
My sentiment is from another new stamp set, Love Grows.

I hope you'll check out these beautiful new products at Dare 2B Artzy. Be on the lookout for another post tomorrow, as well as a hop over on Instagram featuring all of our talented designers!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
