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

Design Steps:

 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

  3. Use the 3rd largest Rounded Rectangle Stitch die and cut a piece of white card stock

Fresh Flowers - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Friends

It has been such beautiful weather here in South Carolina that I have been able to clean out my flower beds.  We had a cold winter and even snow.  So some of the more tropical plants didn't make a come back this spring.  I am going to have to pick some new plants to replace the ones that didn't make it.  So with plants on my mind that was my inspiration for my card this week!
 Design Steps:
1.  Cut out the water can in silver metallic paper using the Spring Watering Can die.  Next cut out all of the flowers and leaves in white using the same die.  I cut out 2 each of the flowers and 3 of the leaf stems.
2.  Color the flowers and leaves using copic makers. Add shading to the watering can using copics
3.  Tape the leaves and flowers to the back of the watering can
4.  Cut the hello using the Hello Spring die.  I cut one in yellow and one in gray.  Glue the gray one in the back of the yellow one slightly off center.  Also cut a frame using the Pierced Wide Rectangle Frames dies the second from the largest in vanilla card stock
5.  Use a vanilla A2 card base, a yellow piece cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and a piece of DP 3 3/4  x 5.  Make sure to add the ribbon before you glue the panel to the front of the card. Add the vanilla frame to the card just slightly to the left of center
6.  Add the watering can onto the frame as shown
7.  Place the hello to the upper right side of the card and it is complete
