You're RAWRsome! Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a super fun card with you that will make anyone smile when they get it in the mail.  I picked products from one of my favorite suites this week to share a fun card that could be used for adults and kids alike.  I love the Dinoroar suite in the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog it's so much fun and just makes me laugh and returns me to my childhood.  I think it's a great addition to anyone's collection and can be used not only for the kiddos but for some fun adult cards as well.  Here's a look at my cards.

I mean honestly who wouldn't love to get a card in the mail with a fun dinosaur that said "You're RAWRsome!" I would, and I think must anyone would.  It's a little whimsy that can be just sitting in the mail box to brighten someone's day.  This stamp set (Dino Days) comes from the Dinoroar Suite in the annual catalog and it has some fun products that can be used on your projects.  You have a fun stamp set with matching dies, some great designer series paper, and wonderful embellishments.

Super Simple Card Design: 

Don't under estimate the super simple card designs when making cards.  Sometimes it's all you really need.  For example my main focus on the card is the egg with the hatching dinosaur.  In the background all I put was some designer series paper cut at 5 1/4 x 4 with a simple thin mat (4 1/8 x 5 3/8).  
 For this little guy I used Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock to stamp both him and his little spikes which are two different stamps and both have matching dies in the Dino Dies set.  I just added a little adhesive behind the spikes and placed them on his back.  I pulled the colors right from the designer series paper.  By the way you can get the Dino Days Stamp Set and the Dino Dies together as part of a cost saving bundle, so don't over look that in the catalog.  
For the female dinosaur version I did the same thing but didn't stamp the spikes.  I felt she didn't need them.  I stamped the dino in Lovely Lipstick and the sentiment again in old olive.  I used a piece of Pretty Peacock for my mat.  My card bases for both cards are in Thick Whisper White cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I did put a 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of matching designer series paper on the inside of both cards to tie everything together.  In the video tutorial I also shared how to create a matching envelope for your card.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my super RAWRsome card!  I also wanted to mention that in this year's catalog on the first page of each suite if you look at the top of the suite there's one item code that can order all the items on that page for one price.  Which is a super great deal if you have to have it all.  Plus it's not only a great deal but it saves you time from having to key in all those item numbers one at a time.  Just something to be aware of.  I will be back tomorrow with another fun card featuring this stamp set for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  See you then.  
Happy Stampin'
