Happy Sunday D2BA Friends!!

We have a new Guest Designer joining us this month!  Please help us welcome Avra Williams!!


I am a stay at home dog mom, as my two kids are “grown and flown” for the most part. I am enjoying the empty nest with my husband of over 25 years. I have been a scrapbooker or cardmaker since my kids were very young. I don’t know much about blogging, but hope to learn more, and to try to get more involved with entering challenges and sharing my work. I spend most of my spare time stamping, coloring, learning new techniques, and making cards. I love socializing with some amazing crafters I have had the good fortune to meet – either online or in person. They truly are some of the best people!


I am so excited to be a guest designer for Dare 2B Artzy!

They have so many wonderful stamps, dies, patterned paper, and more!

Today’s card was made with several Dare 2B Artzy products, and it was really fun to make.

The front of the card was made with 2 die cuts using the Trellis background die. This die is so pretty and makes a great background for so many occasions. I recently learned from design team member Melody Blake, that if you turn one die cut around, the two layer to make a  beautiful new pattern.

The pitcher and the flowers were actually die cut from  sheets of Dare 2B Artzy paper using the Water Pitchers dies! Several of their recent stamp and die sets have coordinating paper for use as backgrounds, or when you don’t want to stamp and color an image!

I used a Dare 2B Artzy die to cut the word “friends”. I layered 4 die cuts, for dimension, and heat embossed the top layer with WOW embossing glitter in Seaglass.

The inside of the card is made with a base from Paper Cuts, in the form of a pop out card. I mounted Dare 2B Artzy papers on all sections of the card. The pitchers are stamped, colored and cut (or die cut from paper) using Refresh the Soul stamps and Water Pitcher dies.

The sentiment and flowers are also from the Refresh the Soul stamp set, and the sentiment is stamped on a shape cut with the Nesting Rectangle Fancy Frames dies.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my first card, I look forward to sharing another one with you next Sunday!
