Dinosaur Playtime SSC109

Last week, a colleague asked me to make a card for her son's 9th birthday. I was keen to do it, because sitting on my desk was the No Bones About It set that I bought as part of my start-up demonstrator's kit but have not used all that much. I suppose I picked it as part of a nostalgia trip, remembering my son's dinosaur obsession that lasted from when he was three until he was about ten, as well as my own fascination for dinosaurs when I was in primary school. Anyway, I had such fun playing today that I think I'll be doing more of it!

My other inspiration today was the colour challenge at Sunday Stamps. Such a dreamy colour combination, it almost seemed a waste to use it on a T-Rex but it was a fabulous combination to work with.

It's a simple wee card, but I think one a little boy would be happy with.

Card: Whisper White, Tangelo Twist
Stamps: No Bones About It, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Island Indigo, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Tuxedo Black
Other: Provocraft Olivia dies 


  1. So fun, love the bones showing through! Cute! Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  2. I love this dinosaur set, but have no little ones at home, so put it on the back burner for now. I love Mr. Dinosaur with his birthday hat! So cute, and excellent use of the colors for this weeks challenge! Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  3. Jan, this is sooo fun! I love the dinosaur set! He is going to make some lucky little guy smile when he sees T Rex doing the birthday dance with his party hat! My boys LOVED dinosaur's, too! So glad you joined us at Sunday Stamps! XX

  4. Well, I bet he loved this and what a fantastic way to use that colour combo. Its brilliant!!
