Sail On Over

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!

Today, I decided to go nautical with a bit of a feminine flair.  I LoVe Dare 2B Artzy's Ahoy Fox Stamp Set so much.  Here's what I did:

I love her blue-dyed fur!  :)  Here are the Copic markers I used to color her.  

Fox:  W0, W2, W5, B000, B00, B02
Shirt:  B24, B26, R56, R59
Eyes:  B93, B95

After coloring her, I fussy cut her and layered her up on some beautiful papers from the  Dare 2B Artzy, Artzy Doodles Paper Pack.  I stamped with used Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Premium Ink.

Here's a close-up of the fun and fabulous foxy girl:

Voyage Beneath the Sea Mini Album

I'm up over at Cut@Home today with a fun mini album made with Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea!  The hubby and I are avid boaters, and this pretty nautical inspired paper was perfect for journaling some photos of one of our recent voyages along the Sacramento River.

Here's the "front view" of the mini-album.

And here's my video showing all of the pages.

I wanted to also share a couple pics of the inside.  This first one is a panel fussy cut from the 8 x 8 paper pad.

And this one shows some of the pretty scenery at the Sacramento River.

Here's a couple pictures of opening draw-bridges.  I'm obsessed with opening the bridges.

And here's one of the sets of pages that shows the hubs and I with a secret panel behind it.\

Thanks for stopping by today.  Here's the supplies list.

A Dare 2B Artzy Aaarf Card

Welcome Dare 2B Artzy fans!!

We have an adorable and cray-cray Queensland Heeler named Chief.  When we go do something that has fireworks, we kennel him (because fireworks terrify him), so I decided to make a card for the nice people who care for him.

I used two different Dare 2B Artzy stamp sets - Puppy Talk and Pet Lovers.  The gorgeous paper I used can be found in the Dare 2B Artzy In Bloom Paper Pack.  One special thing about this paper is that even the "ends" can be used.  That fun dotted line is actually the end where the name of the paper can be found!

Here's a close-up of that adorable puppy!

The Dare 2B Artzy Pet Lovers set has really fun sentiments like this one that I used to decorate the inside:

The Copic Markers I used to color the pup are:

Hearts:  R83
Pup:  C1, C3, C5, R21
Collar:  B32, B34
