Party Like You're Going Extinct

Gina K Designs at StampTV had a great release party this month and one of the new stamp sets is this cute set by Theresa Momber called "Dino-Mite".

The details:
Base Layer Pure Luxury White CS by GDK.  Alterations Flourish Dies in Pure Luxury CS colors Red Hot, Sweet Corn and Fresh Asparagus.   
Copic Marker #R27, YR17 and R32 and 0
Spellbinders Nestabilities Petit Oval die
I used the "Out of the Box" technique on the white oval and then layered the two other ovals beneath it.  Once I placed them on the base layer, I trimmed the edge off for added dimension.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Heart Challenges

Hi everyone,

I've got to get going on my Valentine cards and two challenges this week are helping me do that.

I'm entering this card for those two challenges.   The first challenge is for Joan's Garden Weekly Challenge #2 and the other challenge is over at Speedy the Cat's Challenge #39

The details for Joan's Weekly Challenge #2 are to make a card using:
1.   Paper with a stripe in it.
2.   A button or other embellishment
3.   Use a heart
4.   Use a bow

The details for Speedy the Cat's Challenge #39 at Mark's Finest Papers are to use hearts on your card.

Here's my card:

My card base is made with Gina K Pure Luxury White.  I used a Scalloped Nestabilities Heart Die to cut through the sea green colored cs (from my stash) and I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz "Antique Linen" Distress Ink.  I then layered behind that piece an embossed and distressed piece of cs cut with a regular Nestabilities Heart Die in on smaller size.  Next I layered with Graphic 45 DP "Once Upon a Springtime" collection piece stamped with a sentiment from the GKD stamp set "Love Notes"  The ribbon is MS, roses are from my stash and the button is one from my treasured old/antique button collection.  Once put together, I layered it on my the front of my card base and called it good.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week.
