Little Birdie Hello - Dare 2B Artzy

Good Morning Artzy Fans!

I love the paper that we have in the store.  It is double sided and very whimsical.  So I decided to show some of it off by doing a curtain fold.  This is a good way to use all of that wonderful double sided paper.  I don't know about you but I hate deciding which side to use especially when both sides are so cute!

I started off with an A2 white card base.  Cut a piece of navy card stock 5 1/4 x 4 1/8 and embossed with swiss dots.  Next cut a piece of paper 3 x 4 inch from the Fields of Joy Variety Pack and glued it to the top of the card.  Using the back of the left over paper do your curtain fold.  If you go on Youtube you will find a ton of great videos on how to make this fold.  Here is just one.   After completing the fold I added it to the card and used a strip of DP across the top.  The strip is actually from that same piece of paper!

The last step was to stamp the little bird from the Joyful Noise set and color with copic makers B91, 45, 97 - R14, 17. Add the sentiment from the Perk Up stamp set and the card is complete.

hey ghoulfriend - Pink and Main

Hi Pink and Main Fans!

I just can't resist the new Spooktacular stamp set!  I love all the fun Halloween images and sentiments!

I used a black card base with layers of purple and designer paper.  I added a strip of purple designer paper layered on black.  Next add the ribbon and cheese cloth for some texture.  The image is colored with copic markers and layered on top of the Pink and Main stitched circle die.

Sweet Chickadees - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I am giving you a peek at one of the new release birds.  They are the cutest little group of birds I have ever seen!  I chose to make a card using the Chickadee!

Design Steps
 I stamped and colored the birds with copics: E00, 30, 31, 34, 35, 37, 39, 44, 49 - Y21, 26 - G24 - R00, 46, 59.  I used the coordinating die set to cut out the birds
 Use an A2 red card base, cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock and glue to card.  Cut a piece of DP to layer onto the white.  Use the Cross Stitch Circle set to cut out a 3 1/4 inch DP circle

 Glue all the layers to the front of the card then pop up the circle to the left side of the card and pop up the birds on top of the circle.  Add a sentiment and the card is complete

Halloween is Coming - Pink and Main

Good Morning to All!

Praying for all who have been affected by the hurricanes

Michelle, owner of Pink and Main, has released the cutest set for Halloween called Spooktacular!  It has 4 adorable images plus 6 fun matching sentiments.  And if that isn't enough there is a matching die set!

I made this card with a side acetate window using Pink and Main Not to Spooky Paper Pad.  I put a little monster on the outside and the inside of the card.  I colored with my copic markers and added the boo with my label maker.  The little bats are also included in the set along with a little spider!  To finish the card I added a tulle bow.

Gift Card - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

It is Pam from Stamper at Heart Blog Spot

I know now a days that so many young people like gift cards.  And it really takes all the thrill out of hunting for the perfect gift!  However it is a lot easier and faster to get the gift card.  So to make it a little more personal I decided to make the gift card holder!

Designer steps:

1.  Start with a 4 1/8 x 9 3/4 piece of white card stock.  Score at 2 1/8, 5, 6 and 7. Fold as shown this is the inside of the gift card

 2.  Flip the card over and glue the mountain fold (which is now the vally fold) together.  Then flip the card back over

 3.  Cut 4 pieces of DP at 4 x 2 3/4 and cut 2 pieces at 2 x 4.  Working on the inside of the card glue one of the 4 x 2 3/4 down as shown

 4.  On the inside glue the flap for the card holder down with a tiny lines of glue on both of the far left and right edges and then push it down onto the DP

 5.  Still working on the inside glue the 2 x 4 inch DP to the top flap and glue the 2 3/4 x 4 piece of DP to the bottom half of the gift card

 6.  Flip the card over and glue down the DP to the front of the card

7.  Next cut out the cupcake using the  Cottage Cutz Stitched Cupcake die also using Cottage Cutz Celebrate die cut out the sentiment.   Assemble the pieces

8.  Glue to the front flap as shown

 9.  Flip the card over and add a sentiment just below the pocket for the gift card and add a small velcro dot for secure closing

Fall Flowers - Dare 2B Artz

Hello Dare 2B Artz Friends

It is finally starting to fell just a tiny bit like fall today!  We are at 78 degrees which is really cool for this time of year in South Carolina!  So, I really felt like using the Playful Posies set in fall colors today!

I used an embossing folder for the background and cut a little frame with my Cricut.  I colored the flowers with my Copic makers.  

After I cut out the flowers I taped down my gold cord and arranged the flowers.  I stamped the Praise sentiment on vellum using the Joyful Noise set.  It is embossed in gold. I then added some gold sparkle sequins.

  3. Use the Pink and Main Scallop die set and cut a 3 inch scallop circle glue to the card front.
  4. Attach the tulle to the layered polka dot piece then glue to the card front
  5. Stamp the image using Pink and Main Spooktacular Stamp set and color with Copics: YR07 - YG06 - E50, 53

Chapel in the Woods - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

There are so many wonderful back roads in South Carolina that are just full of gorgeous scenery.  Almost on a daily basis you can see deer.  And it is guaranteed that no matter how far off the beaten path you will always find a small church.  That was my inspiration for this card!

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut a dark brown frame using the largest Pierced Wide Rectangle Frame Set.  Use a piece of green and blue DP for the grass and sky glue behind the frame. Die cut the mountains using the Snowcapped Mountains die.  Glue as shown.  Cut the path free hand out of light brown card stock and glue down
2.  Cut out trees using Rustic Sign & Trees die.  Use green and dark brown card stock to make the cut.  Using Woodland Fawns die cut out 2 fawn one light and one dark brown.  Use the Little Chapel die and cut out the chapel with vanilla card stock.  Assemble all die cuts
3.  Mount frame to the front of the card.  Place a small piece of yellow behind the little chapel and then glue to card.  Put the largest tree on the left and the smaller tree on the right and then add the fawn

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today!  It is one of my favorites!
