Dino-Mite Card Duo

Pair up the new “Dinosaur Adventure” Mini Theme with your favorite dinos 
from the Dinosaurs Silhouette cutting file and a selection of basic
Designer Dies to create a set of playful cards that any boy would love to receive!

For the first card we are using the cone portion of the Ice Cream Cone Die Set 
 to make an interesting background.  The image was die-cut twice from two 
different pattern papers found in the Mini Theme.

A base paper was cut to 3 3/8”W X 4 5/8”H; this was the width and height of the 
four cones when they were placed edge to edge.  The cones were attached to the 
base paper and then machine stitched in place.

The T-Rex dinosaur was added with foam adhesive and finished off with a couple 
of stickers from the mini collection, as well as enamel dots.  The brown and green
 mats were cut from the Bundle of Joy Boy 6X6 Paper Pad.

 The second card also uses one of the dinosaur shapes from the Silhouette file, but 
I have cut it twice, from two different patterns.  I layered the two together by offsetting
 the top layer just up and to the right of the bottom piece.  I used foam adhesive to
 adhere them together.  The bottom layer adds a really cool 3-D effect.

 Using the larger of the Designer Label Dies, I die cut a small landing for the 
dinosaur shape and added it to the card-front.

The palm tree sticker was placed to the right side of the label with foam adhesive
 and the dinosaur layered on top.  From the “dinosaur” banner stickers,
 I used the “U” and “R” to create part of the card’s sentiment. 

Have a SUPER weekend, friends!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
