Dino-fun!





Look what I did! I took MFT's Piece of Cake (which I bought mostly for the fantastic, cheeky sentiments) and Stampin' Up's No Bones About It and made these fun cards!

I knew as soon as I saw the No Bones set, with its bones and solid bodies, that I wanted it even though I'm running out of little boys to make dino cards for. But once I paired it with these sentiments, I think they'll work for lots of people!

Awesome - I used the 'spots' that are supposed to be used on the dinos to create my awesomeness in bright colours.

How Old - I used a Laura Bassen technique to create my ground and sky with distress inks and some masking.

The World - I created my earth  by masking off a circle and then sponging with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire and then adding some Mowed Lawn land formations. I emphasized T-Rex's short arms by including a Poppy Parade heart, coated with clear WoS.

Alone - I double-stamped the dino bones and did something we all did a LONG time ago - tore the sides and sponged with Antique Linen.

I had to come and check these out. They are brilliant! That's what I love about your style, your ability to mix different products and make it all look like they were designed to be together. My cards with this set will be very stereotypical. 😳
