Happy New Year! Today I am starting out 2020 with a cute little card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
My card was inspired by the sketch in Freshly Made Sketches #416. This is a versatile sketch and there are so many creative ideas on how to use it, so check them out!
I started by adhering two panels of the DinoRoar designer series paper on a Pretty Peacock card base with snail adhesive so that they are crooked and you can see both of the papers. I stamped the coconut tree trunk from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set using Soft Suede ink on a panel of Soft Suede card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Dino die set. I stamped 5 coconut leaf fronds using Granny Apple Green ink on a strip of Granny Apple Green card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I attached the coconut tree pieces to the card with liquid glue and trimmed two of the fronds to align with the edge of the paper before attaching.
I cut two Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Brontosaurus and a Pterodactyl from from the DinoRoar designer series paper using the dies from the Dino die set. The paper with the large dinosaurs fits the dies perfectly so that you can die cut the images directly from the DSP in addition from a stamped image. I also cut the dinosaurs that go on the front of the card from Thick Whisper White card stock using the dies. I adhered these to the back of the DSP dinosaurs to stiffen them before popping them on the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Pretty Peacock after swiping it with the embossing buddy. I sprinkled White embossing powder on it and heat set. I trimmed the end and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I placed the dimensionals carefully on the banner so that it would straddle the Brontosaurus.
I added a strip of the DinoRoar designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I added the last Tyrannosaurus Rex with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed his tail and added the panel to the inside of the card.
Starting out the New Year with something old is a little counterintuitive, but the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration start in just 2 more days. So I have to pace myself, because the excitement is really building – 2 more days!
