Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 23: Featuring the Dino Days Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another #simplestamping card.  Today's card features the dinoriffic stamp set Dino Days new in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This is a super fun set featuring some very cute dinosaurs.  As I mentioned in another post I totally think this set can be used for anyone not just kids.

If you are new to stamping these tutorials and videos are designed just for you.  They are designed to teach new crafters how to create wonderful cards only using Stamps, Ink, and Paper!   These are super simple but fun and cute cards that you can easily recreate without problems.  I design a new card for my beginning stampers each week.  I remember how it felt when I first started stamping and how scary it can be to share your cards with others.  So I am here to help you not to feel that way.  And one way I can do that is to share with you a Simple Stamped card that you can recreate and to help guide you in that you don't have to have all the fun stuff just yet.  All that comes as you progress.  Here's a look at today's simple stamping card.

See I told you super cute cards but easy to reproduce for the new stamper in mind.  I started off with just a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  A standard size piece of cardstock in the US is 8 1/2 x 11.  You can get two cards from one sheet.  You will want to score it down the middle:  I did a portrait style card today so we will turn it on the long side and score it at 5 1/2.  Turn it back around on the short side and cut down the middle at 4 1/4.  Now you how two card bases cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  Now all we have to do is stamp.

Simple Stamping: 

Now since we have the paper cut it's time to pull out the ink.  I used Pretty Peacock, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Old Olive, Pineapple Punch, and Pool Party.  In the image above you will see the addition of Pool Party little images that I didn't show in the video.  I used two of the small images to fill up some of the white space on the card.  You can see them and copy them from the pictures below.  
Pick a dinosaur and a ink color and stamp one dinosaur in each color, around the card.  I started with the largest one first and then filled in the rest.  
Once you have both cards stamped add your sentiment and then use the smaller stamps in pool party to fill in the white space a little.  For the card above I used the Palm branch to fill in areas.  
For this one I used the same colors but used the foot prints to fill in some of the white space.  

Here's another look at both cards so that you can see them side by side without having to scroll back up.  Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you will give this simple stamped card a try.  You will find all the supplies used in the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below.
