Welcome to Dare 2B Artzy's Blog Hop!!

Who's excited for Spring?!
Here at D2BA we are super excited for some sun shiny days and warm weather!
To celebrate we decided to have a Spring 3D Themed Blog Hop!! 

We are super excited to have two Guest Designers joining us for this hop!!

You should have arrived here from Karen's blog!  If you haven't and would like to hop along with us, please go back to the Dare 2B Artzy Blog to start at the beginning!

Be sure to follow each blog and leave comments along the way for your chance at winning!  We will randomly choose a winner from one of the blogs, so the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!!
Winner will receive a stamp set and ink pad of their choice!!
Blog Hop will end Sunday, April 30th at 7:00pm Eastern. 
We will then post a winner!!

My 3D project is an all occasion gift bag with attached tag.  This will be the perfect container for a Mother's Day gift!
I used images from the Doodle Flowers stamp and die set.  I first stamped the medium flower randomly on the gift bag then stamped the hello between the images.  Flowers were colored using alcohol markers.  The tag background was sponged uisng D2BA inks.  Images on the tag were stamped, colored, and die cut using the Doodle Flowers die set.

This is a close-up of the tag attached to the gift bag.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Your next stop in the hop is Tasha's blog! 

We hope you are inspired all along the way!

Happy Hopping!

Dies R Us Playful Monkeys!

My card is a top-fold card that I used the Poppy Stamps Jungle Vine Oval die to create the opening.
I then die cut three monkeys from the Poppy Stamps Happy Monkey die, and die cut the word smile from the Penny Black Heartfelt die set.

Here's a tip when die cutting a figure that needs to be pieced together - die cut from white cardstock and then color using your markers, pencils, etc., before piecing together.

I colored the tree and vines using alcohol makers and then placed a solid color of designer paper behind the die cut card front.

Here's a close-up of these playful monkeys!

To complete my card I placed the die cut smile in the lower right corner of the card as shown in the completed card at the top.
