Crafter's Castle Challenge Project 2 Sponsored by Memory Box

Happy Saturday everyone!
Sharing a colorful holiday card today created for the Crafter's Castle Challenge sponsored by Memory Box!

I used the pretty Batavia Snowflake Oval craft die and Gentle Horizon Oval craft die to frame an ombre distress inked background. The water spots gives a snow-like look to the sky and I love the pop of pink!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card. Check out my video to see more details!

Modern Fall Layered Card

Good morning D2BA friends!
Tasha here sharing a card inspired by the October Fall themed challenge.

The blue background was created with the New Trellis Die and layered on dark brown card stock. I think the dark brown really allows the blue color to pop and show off the trellis design.

The sentiment "Wishing you Happiness" was stamped in green, layered on coordinating blue card stock and silver glitter paper. The silver sparkle made such a lovely frame!

The leaves on the side were cut from D2BA pattern paper using the Fall Leaves Artzy Cuts. It's awesome that these dies can be used with several stamp sets and the new leaf print pattern paper!

Lastly, I added two rhinestones for extra shine and layered the design on to an A2 sized card base. I think this is a great way to send a happy greeting to someone special this fall season.

Dare 2B Artzy October Challenge -Happy Fall!

Good morning!
Today, I am sharing a new Fall themed card created for the Dare 2B Artzy October Challenge

The October Challenge theme is "Fall" and I just love this season! The colors, cool weather, and pumpkin everything is something I look forward to all year.
For my card I made a clean & simple leaf design using the new Fall Harvest Paper Collection and Fall Leaves Artzy Cuts.

I used one of the leaf dies to cut the blue image from the pattern paper and cut through the white card stock. Next, added the image like a puzzle piece to keep it a single layer top card. I love that this die set will work with the coordinating stamps and pattern paper. This blue leaf also looks amazing with the solid white background!

The sentiment "Many Thanks" is from the super cute NEW Foxy Greetings stamp set. The orange and blue color combo is perfect for this simplistic style, and it also looks great with the olive green back layer.

Lastly, I added two rhinestone embellishments to the end on the leaf for some sparkle. A little bling is always a good idea!

Below are some additional styles:

The Crater's Castle October Challenge Sponsored By Memory Box

Hi everyone!
I'm so excited to be a guest designer for the Crafter's Castle Blog for the month of October! This month's challenge is sponsored by Memory Box (Yay!) and the theme is anything goes. 

For my project I created a festive holiday card using products from Memory Box. I love this winter scene and the cute little house !

I used the awesome Gentle Horizon Oval and Gentle Valley Oval Craft Die Sets for the center frame. I love that these dies make it so easy to build a scene! 
The sweet little house is from the Stitched Village Die Set. I used pattern paper instead of coloring the house and added the optional snow on the roof to coordinate with the winter theme.

Lastly, I embossed "Merry Christmas" in gold and stamped "From All Of Us" in red to compliment the colors used in the background. Lastly, a cute little heart coming from the chimney added the finishing touch to complete the design.

Please check out my YouTube video for more details!

Have a wonderful day!

You Warm My Heart

Hello Friends!
Tasha here sharing a coffee themed card today created with the fun "Perfect Blend" stamp set. I love this sweet stamp set and think the coffee tumbler is great for a fall birthday card!

The fun cup was stamped with an ink that fades to allow no-line coloring. I love the soft look it gave this stamped image! For the coloring, I used markers and a little white gel pen. The pink color is so pretty and coordinates well with the pink card stock frame.

The sentiment "You Warm My Heart" was stamped on to teal card stock and embossed in white. White embossing is a great way to add more detail to a project, and looks amazing! I also stamped "Happy Birthday" on the cup with D2BA Wild Orchid Ink. This purple color is so pretty!

Lastly, I added sparkle with some glitter paper and metallic thread. The card was layered on a 110 lb card stock base to complete this cheerful design.

Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the Dare 2B Artzy shop for some awesome Coffee & Tea themed stamp sets.

Not So Spooky Halloween Card

Hello friends!
Tasha here sharing a Not So Spooky Halloween card using some of D2BA's festive Halloween themed stamp sets!
I have been challenging myself to think of new ways to use my stamp sets and thought a background created with a variety of spooky sentiments would be super fun! I stamped the Boo and EEEK in traditional Halloween colors and added some little bats. The cute bats just pop against the white paper.

The haunted house image was stamped in the same ink color as the bats and layered on coordinating purple and green textured card stock. To add a little more detail, I used various shades of gold markers to color in the windows and frame the house giving it a nice glow.

Lastly, I created a pull tab panel and stamped "Happy Halloween" inside with matching purple ink. The card was then adhered to green and purple layers and attached onto a pink card base to complete the design. I like the pop of pink!
