Good Morning Dare 2B Artzy Fans!

I am thrilled and very honored to be a guest hostess for this wonderful creative company Dare 2B Artzy!!  

First a little about myself:

pam 001

My name is Pam MacKay and I live in South Carolina with my hubby and big yellow lab.   We are new to South Carolina and are trying to get use to the humidity! We spent 38 years in Southern California and I must say that is the best climate in America.  I am a recently retired teacher and the only thing I miss is the kids! 

I absolutely love my paper crafting hobby in particular card making.  I have been making cards for over 15 years and I just can’t seem to get enough!  My style is usually very layered but I also love the clean and simple look.  I spend a lot of time up in my women’s cave but I do have to go down stairs to feed the hubby on occasion!

I will be doing 3 projects in the month of February so I hope you stop by the whole month!


This Z card is using the stamp set called Hot Air Balloon!


I would like to share the steps for this bright and festive card!


  1. Start by using a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of white card stock score at 2 3/4 inches and 5 1/2 inches.                       IMG_0100
  2. Cut yellow card stock 1 piece 4 x 5 1/4 and 2 pieces 4 x 2 1/2 set aside.
  3. Cut blue card stock 1 piece 3 3/4 x 5 and 2 pieces 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 stamp all the blue pieces with the  cloud using versa mark ink.  (Tip: when I stamped the clouds I placed the pieces right next to each other to get a consistent look) Emboss with white embossing powder.
  4. Glue the blue cloud panels to the yellow layer and then attach to the card.                                                IMG_0106
  5. Cut an 11 x 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock and score at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.
  6. Cut yellow card stock 1 piece 1 1/4 x 5 1/4 and 2 pieces 2 1/2 x 1 1/4  run through embossing folder and glue the yellow card stock to the white and attach to card.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               IMG_0110
  7. Stamp the 3 balloons and color with copics: E15, 13, 18 – Y11, 15, 17 – YR14, 18 – R29, 32, 59 cut the balloons out using the coordinating dies.  Stamp the sentiments and layer on blue for the front and  just on white for the inside of the card.IMG_0108
  8. Glue the large balloon to the strip of yellow and pop the smaller balloons to the front and inside of the card as shown.



Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you try a Z fold card soon!
