Play Ball - Dare 2B Artzy

Hello Dare 2B Artzy Friends!

It is so much fun driving around neighborhoods during the spring.  You get to see all the cute little leaguers playing baseball.  Some of the little ones are so small the bats are bigger then they are!! That was my inspiration for my card today!
 Design Steps

  1. Use an A2 white card base and score at 2 1/8 and to make it easy I just flipped the card and scored again at 2 1/8.  This scoring will create a simple gatefold
  2. Cut two pieces of navy paper 2 x 5 1/4 and two pieces of Dare 2B Artzy Summertime Petals Collection paper at 1 3/4 x 5.  Glue the DP to the navy paper and then onto the card front
  3. Cut a piece of navy paper 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 and attach it to the right side of the gatefold
  4. Stamp the images and sentiment using the Hats Off set.  Color with copics: BG72, 75, 78 - E33, 35, 37 - R46.  Cut them out with the coordinating die set
  5. Adhere to the card front as shown

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

Thanks for taking time to stop by today!  We have a brand new release of Llama & Botanical dies available in the online store.  And the dies are currently on sale for a limited time at 25% off the retail price.

The new dies have a couple of super cute Llama images as well as cactus and other succulents.  And don't miss the sweet hummingbird and garden bird too!  This new release is so versatile!  They can be used for all kinds of cards and other projects!

I am using the new Dogwood Branch!
Design Steps:
 1.  Using the Dogwood Branch die cut out all of the pieces in white
 2.  Using the Double Stitched Square die cut out the third largest in white then keep the square die intact with the paper.  Place a cloud stencil over the top and sponge on the blue ink
 3.  Pull the square away from the die and it will give you a nice clean edge
 4.  Use your Copic Markers to color the branch and leaves
 5.  Use your Copics to color all of the flower pieces also
 6.  I used a shaping tool to give the flowers a little bend
 7.  Glue the flower layers together
 8.  Glue the branch to the cloud covered square as shown
 9.  Arrange the flowers as shown
 10.  Use an A2 white card base a slightly smaller piece of DP and then a piece of blue cardstock cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  Run it through an embossing folder for some texture
11.  Use craft foam on the back of the cloudy square then glue to the card front.  Stamp your sentiment and layer onto DP glue to the front of the card.  Add bow and your card is complete!
