Dare 2B Artzy 3D Holiday Hop

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy Fans to the 3D Holiday Blog Hop! 

Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner??!  Crazy, seems like it was just summer yesterday!  We are so excited about the holidays and decided to have a fun holiday hop featuring 3D projects.  We hope we inspire you to get Artzy this holiday season.


Did you come from the ever-so-talented Pam's blog??!  If you didn't and would like to hop along with us, go back to the Dare 2B Artzy Blog to start at the beginning. 

Be sure to follow each blog and leave comments along the way for your chance at winning!  We will randomly choose a winner from one of the blogs, so the more you comment, the more chances you have to WIN!  The winner will receive a Dare 2B Artzy stamp set and ink pad.  The blog hop ends Sunday, November 19, at 7 p.m. Central.

For my project, I made a sweet little treat box and matching card:


I cut the box with a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and then decorated it and the card with the Poinsettia Tangle Stamps and Coordinating Dies.  The stamps are colored with Copics R35, R37, YG61, YG63, Y23, Y26 and C1.

Here's a couple close-ups:


That beautiful paper is from the Dare 2B Artzy Holly Days collection!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday to my DADDY!  Whoop!  I seriously have the best dad.  He and my mom are there for me - always - no matter how many stupid mistakes I make.  He can do and fix anything.  Seriously, just like McGyver!  I created him a birthday card using fabulous products from from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


Neat, huh?  The owls are from the Give a Hoot Clear Stamps and are colored with Copics:  E41, E42, E43, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG10, E07, E09, and YR16.  The stars are colored with Y23 and Y26.  I used the Manly Man paper from the 12x12 collection.  The image border is done with the Stitched Rectangle dies (and I just cut off the ends).  I finished the card off with a die cut from the Celebration Flags and some twine!

My supplies list is below.  Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Make a Wish

Posting today using products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The paper is mostly the scraps from a 6x6 pad.  I love it!  Here's what I did:


That adorable stamp is from the NEW ModaScrap Cucina with Love stamps and is cut using a Stitched Circle.  Behind it, I placed a doily.  The paper is also from ModaScrap and is also called Cucina with Love.  Everything coordinates so beautifully.  The owls are colored with E41, E42, R81, R83, R82, YR14, Y23, Y26, C1, C3, YG61, YG63, and E33.

The sentiment is called Birthday Sentiments.  There is a coordinating set of dies (Labels 1) to cut it out.  I colored the edges with R81 and R83; stars with Y26.

Thanks for stopping by.  My supplies list is below.

Christmas Poinsettia - Artzy Style

I've got a fun Christmas card over at Dare 2B Artzy today!  Here's that I did with the Poinsettia Tangle Stamps and Coordinating Dies:


Isn't that poinsettia pretty!  I love the Zentangle!  I colored the top layer with Copic markers R35, R37, R39, C1, C3, Y23 and Y28.  The bottom layer is just done with the cool greys and rimmed with red.  I popped the top flower onto the bottom flower.  The paper is from the Holly Days collection.

Hope you have an ARTZY day!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Avery with Poinsettia

It's time for a new challenge at Paper Nest Dolls Challenges.  I'm working on trying to finish up my 2017 Christmas cards, so I used the digital stamp, Avery with Poinsettia to create this fun card:


I love her long wavy hair.  I usually do brown hair, but the pretty paper called to me to try blond.  LoVe how it turned out.  The colors I chose to color her with are Copics:

Hair:  E51, E53, E55
Skin:  E000, E01, E11
Clothes:  YG61, YG63, G40
Poinsettia:  E13, E15, E17, R35, R37, R39

The paper is from the Elizabeth Craft Designs, It's Christmas Time Collection, and I used dies available there too.

Thanks for stopping by today!  And be sure to join the challenge for your chance at winning a fantastic prize!

Craftily yours,
