Have a dino-mite day!
It is time to celebrate St Patty's day and what better way to celebrate the Irish then with a 'green' project!
Last week at The Cuttlebug Spot we used a technique of double embossing using Nesties and a CB folder, this is another example of that technique and you will find Nilda's (our leader at TCS) video HERE to help you with that. (Thank you again Donna for your help with this!)
I can not give myself credit for the idea of this card..all my inspiration came from my DT sister at TCS, Margie. Margie recently did a darling altered frame project and used the same embossing folder with her Dino-mite design! Thanks Margie for your idea! hehe!
Ok so I knew I wanted to use a dinosaur but I didn't want to get out my Cricut and I own no dino stamps. What to do, what to do? Well I Googled "cute dinosaur clipart" and found picture after picture of darling little dino's. I picked my favorite and sketched my own version. After I got him correct I went over it again in black ink and filled it in with markers. (pretty cute, huh?)
Here is a close up of Dinny the Dino.
I did this extra photo because I like how it showed the Nestie embossing as well as the popped oval with the bones in the back.
And the bottom half of the card. I (again) hand wrote my sentiment. I am finding handwriting better then dealing with the 1/2 hour of fooling with my crumby printer or simply not owning the right stamp for the project.! I used pinking shears to cut the side of the card and some detail on the card. After I folded up a corner of the green paper (well because an edge had gotten screwed up so I thought, hey fold that puppy up!) I thought it looked cool to trim the yellow background as well as the card itself along the same angle.
My older sister just had her birthday last week and this was for her. I simple and quick card with my brand new Hero Art stamp "clouds". I am a big time youtube video fan and loved this stamp when I saw it used in projects...I am pretty excited to see what else I can do with it!
The balloons were hand drawn and cut with Cricut paper (you know those old stacks of 6x12 paper? that my husband ramdomly picked out when purchasing me a cart for Valentines Day)
Thank you for your time this fabulous monday...and I hope you will take just a moment to see the other F.U.N. projects posted at The Spot! xoxo! Leah
