D2BA April Challenge ~ Patel Colors

Good morning everyone!
Sharing a card created for the April Dare 2B Artzy Challenge. This month's theme is Pastel Colors which is perfect for Spring cards!
I was inspired by the fun Flower Corner stencil and thought shades of pink, blue, and purple worked great for a spring card. Distress ink and some clear rhinestones complete the background. The sparkle is so pretty!

The stamped bear image is from the Bear Banner stamp set and it was colored with Copic markers. I used a light purple ink on the Hugs sentiment. The purple is darker in person and coordinates perfectly with the bear's clothing and the soft background.

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to enter this month's D2BA Challenge. This is the perfect time to play with your craft stash and create some fun spring and summer cards. 
Have a wonderful day!

Hello Spring!

Happy Tuesday Friends!
Tasha here sharing a spring themed card created with the lovely  Little Birdie stamp set.

The little birdie image was stamped with Totally Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I love the purple and green color combo! The birdie's colors were inspired by the beautiful D2BA pattern paper.

The pretty flowers and lavender background make me think of the pastel colors of Springtime and to add some sparkle I cut a scalloped circle glittery frame. The bird image is actually attached to the inside of the card on top of dark purple card stock and I think it looks amazing!

The sentiment "Hello Spring" is from the new Spring is Blooming stamp set. The "Hello" word was embossed in Rose Gold powder and the "Spring" word was stamped in a coordinating lavender color and cut with the Spring is Blooming die set (Ships Late April). I really enjoy all the different shades of purple used in this project and can not wait to send this Spring themed card out.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today's card.

Remember there's still time to enter the Dare 2B Artzy March Challenge!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Tasha here sharing a festive card created with the Flower Gnome stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy. I love challenging myself to think of new ways to use my stamps and thought the cute Gnome "Gnellie" would make a sweet St. Patrick's Day card.

Gnellie was colored with markers and I used the coordinating die set to easily cut the image out. To stick with the theme, I used traditional Irish colors and attached a shamrock sticker. I'm loving the red hair!

Lastly, I added a simple "Happy St. Patrick's Day" greeting and used layers of gold metallic paper and plaid D2BA pattern paper to bring in more color. I think gold always looks great on a card! I also added some gold shamrock coin stickers to complete the design.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Sending Sunshine Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Sending Sunshine Blog Hop.
Your next stop is Tracy Shultz!

Today I'm sharing a card created for my special crafty friend Jeanie.  I wanted to make a cheerful card and thought this sweet little teddy bear stamp from Dare 2B Artzy would be perfect!

The sunshine theme inspired me to use shades of yellow, gold glitter paper, and bright pink to give a bright look. I also layered a piece of floral pattern paper behind the bear image. I love flowers and this print adds just the right amount without looking too busy.

The bear was colored with Copic markers and the "Hugs" sentiment was handwritten. I used my favorite white gel pen and Wink of Stella to complete the design.

Happy Bird-Day!

Happy Tuesday D2BA friends!
Tasha here sharing a card created with the sweet Little Birdie stamp set. This fun stamp set can be used alone, but also coordinates with the pretty Leaf Background die.

Now that we are entering Spring, I wanted to make a bright birthday card to send to a special friend. There are so many sentiments included in this set that allows you to make year-round cards and I like that there is more than one birthday greeting.

The little birdie was stamped with Totally Black ink and colored with markers. I love that this ink doesn't bleed with coloring with markers and dries super fast. The bird image was cut out and layered on to the circle glitter frame. I also layered some leaves that I colored with distress ink to give the card more dimension. 

I also used distress ink on the center circle in shades of blue; water droplets also adds to the nice sky-like color. For the sentiment, I selected "Happy Bird-Day To You" ad stamped it in the same Totally Black ink. To coordinate with the black ink, I used a layer of black cardstock behind the glitter frame. I enjoy the look of matted layers. 

Lastly, a layer of Dare 2B Artzy pattern paper added tons of color and a fun design to the background. I thought this pattern looked like raindrops and went with the Spring theme. To complete the design I added some clear glitter and glued the card on to an A2 size card base.

Thank you for stopping today; I hope I inspired you to create a card with the Little Birdie stamp set

Have a wonderful day!

Have a Tail Waggin Good Day!

Good morning D2BA friends!
Tasha here sharing a card created with the super cute new Puppy Kisses stamp set.

This set includes this adorable puppy image and a nice variety of sentiments. I used "Have a Tail Waggin Good Day!" which is great to give to anyone, anytime.

The little puppy was colored with markers and I used glitter on the bow to make it sparkle. For extra sparkle, I added gold glitter paper on the bottom of the card; I love the gold!!!

The center shape was cut with the Oval Scalloped die set and I used the fun D2BA plaid paper to add tons of color. For more color, I matted the layers with light blue card stock and attached the card on to a green A2 card base.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed a peek at the Puppy Kisses stamp set! Have a wonderful day!

My card was created with the cute new Crafty Gnome stamp set and this little gnome has quickly become a favorite. I love that she is holding her coloring tools and a card; this will make some great cards for crafty friends!
I used Copic markers to color the image and white gel pen to add little details. To make the card bright and happy, I used a piece of D2BA pattern paper and layers of coordinating card stock. Pink & Green is one of my favorite color combinations and matting the layers with black and navy blue really help to make the bright colors pop!
