Hi Friends,

I finally managed to finish my card and just in the nick of time for the MFT sketch challenge.  Phew! Bubs and housework aren't giving me much time to craft and it has taken me three days to put this card together!

This is my second card recently featuring a dinosaur. I love these critters, they are perfect images for masculine cards, which I always struggle with.  This time I have used the awesome stamp set 'Prehistoric Fun' from MFT. Don't you just love the sentiment?!

MFT Stamps - Prehistoric Fun
MFT Die-namics - Prehistoric Fun
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Standard Large Circles
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Circle Stax
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Basic Edges
MFT Die-namics - Grassy Hills
Simple Stories 6x6 Paper Pad- Sn@p Color Vibe
Ranger Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles - Bon Bon 
Ranger Glossy Accents
Wooden Star - from stash

I coloured the dinosaur with my copics and added some glossy accents to his spots. I mounted him onto the scene using a different depths of foam pads to give the scene more dimension.  The sky was created with sponged tumbled glass ink and I used some patterned paper and green card stock to create the grass.  I created the brown frame by using two dies - a larger stitched circle and a small circle die. I kept the stitched theme with both the edging and the flag.

Thanks so popping by, have a great day.

Keep in Touch

Hi there,

It's been another fast weekend and I haven't got half my 'to do' list done! Thankfully though, I did manage to finish this card, and if my wee girl sleeps this evening, I might even get some colouring done :)

My card today features 'Texting Abby', who is one of three new releases this month over at Whimsie Doodles. The layout is based on the clean sketch by Jen at Freshly Made Sketches. It's great to be able to play along again.

Here is my card.

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Texting Abby
MFT Cling Rubber Stamps - Circle Scribbles 
Lil' Inker Designs Die Set - Anytime Tags
MFT Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax  
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm 
MFT 6x6 Paper Pack - Fresh Squeezed Chevron 
My Minds Eye 6x6 Paper Pad - Everyday Fair
MFT Premium Dye Ink - Berrylicious  
Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa
Doodlebug Design Sprinkles - Blue Jean Assortment 
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins - Marshmallow 4mm
Naturals Hemp Cord Mix 1mm
Ribbon from stash
I coloured the image in with my copics - believe it or not her hair was supposed to be blonde but I made a complete mess of it so had to go darker to salvage it!  I fussy cut her out and mounted it onto a tag. I had extended the length of the tag by adding some desert storm cardstock to the bottom and grounded the image with a scrap of blue designer paper.  To the card base I added some MFT chevron paper. I then adhered a smaller piece of white card which I had stamped with circle scribbles stamp and blue ink. I stamped the sentiment in rich cocoa ink and die-cut it out using a fishtail flag.
