Cards

Stretch those Stamps!

Hi, Stampers!
I know you have all made fabulous cards with Dare 2B Artzy stamp sets like the ones shown below!

I have made some really fun cards with these sets, too, but today I am looking for ways to stretch my stamp set usage with the smaller images contained within these sets!

So what can we do with the smaller images…I’m thinking these would make great wreaths with matching envelopes!

For this floral wreath card, I used small images from Playful Posies Layered and Refresh the Soul.  The images were stamped with Dare 2B Artzy’s Bright Pumpkin, Wild Orchid, and Margarita Lime inks.  The sentiment and the purple flower accents were embossed with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Regular Embossing Powder.
I fussy cut the outside edge of my wreath and mounted it onto a circle cut with the Circle Framelits.

Once you get started with these smaller images, it is so hard to stop!

Who knew you could make a wreath with baseballs?!!!
The baseball image comes from the Hats Off stamp set while the sentiment comes from the Baseball/Softball stamp set.  The images were stamped with Dare 2B Artzy’s Midnight Blue and Pomegranate inks.

BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!

These images came from Bee-utiful and Playful Posies Layered.  They were stamped with Totally Black Ink, Sunset Yellow Ink, and Bright Pumpkin Ink.  I used the following Copic Markers for easy coloring: (Y17, YR16, R05) and Y21.  Accents were added with Nuvo Glitter Gloss.  I wish you could see all that glittery goodness in person!

Okay…okay…I’ll stop now as I’m sure you’ve gotten the picture!  I would love to see what you do with the smaller images in the Dare 2B Artzy stamp sets!  Please share over on Instagram with the hashtag #dare2bartzy!

Happy stamping!
Melody
