All you need is LOVE & HOT COCOA

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s Friday (yep, I’m doing the happy dance) and I hope you’ve had a good week! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project using one of our new stamp sets, Cup of Cheer, along with the coordinating Mug die, Totally Black ink and Artzy Doodles Pomegranate paper from the Variety Pack. Our challenge theme this month is “All You Need Is Love” – so come on over and play for a chance to win some Dare 2B Artzy stamps! :)

I created my love-themed card in traditional red with a little yellow and just a pop of orange. I started with a large inlaid die cut heart which I backed with yellow cardstock.


I added the mug and steam die cuts, the patterned strip from the edge of the Artzy Doodles paper, the sentiment and sequins. I love me some sequins! And yes, all of the Dare 2B Artzy papers have a patterned strip on the top edge that you should keep and use on your projects! ;)


I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of the red paper and yellow cardstock used on the front. I used one of the sentiments from the Cup of Cheer stamp set and added a couple punched hearts from my stash.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  3. Such a pretty card! Thank you for joining our Challenge a few weeks ago at Word Art Wednesday. We have a week left on our current Challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Have a blessed week.
