Dare 2B Artzy New Product HOP

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I am popping in today with inspiration featuring new stamps, dies and paper from Dare 2B Artzy.

We’re celebrating all of the fun new goodies with an Instagram HOP so if you want to see all of the fun cards that my fellow DT ladies created you need to get over to Instagram and start the HOP with @dare2bartzy P.S. There might be a discount code over there…just saying. You do not want to miss that. Plus, you need to give some love to the other Design Team members, they have a lot of inspiration to share.

For my card today, I created a fun scene with the adorable kitty from the Love Grows stamp set. This was so easy to put together.

My images were stamped with Versafine black ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock. The Bristol Smooth cardstock is my go-to for coloring images with my Zig Clean Color brush markers.
I colored my kitty, the vase, and the hanging plant as well as a butterfly and die cut them using the coordinating Love Grows die set.

I am an animal lover and I couldn’t resist coloring the adorable kitty in this stamp set to look like my kitty Ahsoka. We adopted her in November and she is a little tri-pod kitty but that doesn’t stop her from climbing and getting into mischief.

Back to my card, once my images were all cut out, I wanted to create a background scene using some of the gorgeous new papers from the Everything is Blooming paper collection. These papers are great for all your summer card making and scrapbook projects, but I think they will work well in the fall as well with the awesome color palette.

For my background I used the floral backside of the Boho Stripe paper and the dotted pattern from the back of the English Garden paper to create a nice wallpaper with a wainscoted (for lack of a better word) bottom half of the wall.

I added the patterned paper to a mini slimline card base. To divide the floral wallpaper from the bottom, I added a thin strip of grey cardstock.

My images were added to the background with dimensional foam and liquid glue. To ground my kitty, I embossed a piece of craft cardstock with a wood grain embossing folder. I had imagined that this could be the floor or perhaps my kitty is being bad and standing on a table trying to reach the butterfly, LOL!

I used the “MEOW” word die that comes with the Love Grows die set and cut it three times from a scrap of grey cardstock and glued the layers together. I added that to the top of the card.
For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I stamped the Love and the hanging out with you with Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black ink.

That finishes my card for today! I hope you have enjoyed it and that you will check out the Instagram HOP and the Dare 2B Artzy shop. In that order because you are going to want to buy all of the things! Trust me!
