Butterfly Tangle

Friday, February 12, 2016
Hi crafters!  Simply Monica here with my first official post as a design team member for Dare 2B Artzy.  Here at D2BA you will find fun whimsical designs, doodles, clean and simple and the list goes on and on.  Today I created an elegant card using Butterfly Tangle along with the matching Butterfly dies.

I colored the image using Copic markers in a variety of fun colors to match the fun design of the stamp.  I handmade the white flowers and added some other miscellaneous flowers as well.  I used Sue Wilson dies Creative Expressions for the card base.

Hi crafters! Today on the CutCardStock blog I am sharing a project using CutCardStock Classic Pearl Linen papers.  The feature this month is Home Decor and odd as this may seem I made these plaques for my friend daughter's wall with a simple die.  She did not want something really big so I thought this was perfect.  I made 2 of the exact same things that she will place side by side on her wall above her bead.

What is nice is that the paper is so sturdy an durable I know this will last for months and months.  Her room actually is this color so it was too good to be true!

I added a 3d sticker that matched the shine of the paper (at least to me it matched lol) for a perfect centerpiece.  I adhered it together using Tombow Mono Adhesive glue this is sturdy glue I love it!  I then used some Tombow 3d Double Sided Foam so it had layers.

I hope everyone has enjoyed my post and be sure to stop back by and check out all the other amazing projects the team will be sharing!

I Heart You

Monday, January 25, 2016
Hi crafters!! Valentines is right around the corner and who will be mine?!!  Today I am sharing a cute card I am giving to my best boy just to brighten his day.  I think I will put it in his lunch box so when he goes to work and opens his lunch wham... lol  I used My Favorite Things "Subtle Plaids" paper and the new release Pure Innocence I Heart You stamp
I actually stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink  and used the Copic Alcohol marker pad this time.  Pure Innocence is colored with Copic markers and I used Crafter's Companion Double Sided Adhesive   to adhere the card together.  I also used some Bazzill Classic Smooth cardstock in white for the card base.  I used Mama Elephant dies to make the actual card itself.

A Peaceful Breeze

Hi crafters! Monica here sharing a card I made using Dreamerland Crafts "A Peaceful Breeze"' which is one of the newer stamp lines in the MarkerPop store. These stamps to me have such a relaxing soft feel to them...  just imagine your kids playing out in a field full of flowers, chasing the dog just being kids.  Weird I know, but if you look at the stamps you will understand what I mean and just by the title "a peaceful breeze" makes sense right?!

She is colored with Copic markers on Xpress-It paper with my usual Tuxedo Black memento ink.  To me it just works beautifully I know there are so many inks out there, but for me this just works!

Skin: E000, E00, R56, E11
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55, E59
Dress: Y11, Y13, Y18
Flower: RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, YG21, YG23, YG17

Thanks so much stopping by and be sure to take a look at the stamp line you will see exactly what I mean!!
