Rawrsome Dino — FMS400

We’re continuing our celebration of reaching sketch #400 at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week, we are revisiting sketch #300, which is still a great sketch!  Take a look:

Wanting to use the Dino Days stamp set, I decided to use the Brontosaurus dinosaur, thinking that it would work well with the oval image.

I started this one out by die-cutting a dino from a sheet in the Dinoroar dsp pack. I placed him on a stitched oval with splatters.  There are lots of layers on this card — the green is Old Olive card stock stamped with a stamp in the Dino Days stamp set, and the patterned paper is also from the Dinoroar dsp pack.

Some In-color Faceted Dots and white baker’s twine finish it off.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

This Much Dino — FMS398

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our sketch comes all the way from France.  Ooh la la!  Our hostess is Cecile Ribon, who is a master with die-cuts.  Take a look at what she has created for us:

I recently acquired the Dino Days suite of products.  No, I do not have young children anymore and hence no longer play with plastic dinosaurs, but I have an 18 year-old daughter who still loves dinosaurs and these dinos are just plain cute.  I knew I could make some dinosaur cards to mail to her when she goes off to college next month, so I decided to get started.

On a piece of white card stock I applied a light wash of Pool Party ink.  Once that dried, I stamped the background with Old Olive and Pretty Peacock ink.  I also added some splatters.  The dinosaur was die-cut from the coordinating dsp and popped up with dimensionals.

This was a fun card to make!  I guess I still like playing with dinosaurs.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site and check out what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
