This card was created for this weeks Global Design Challenge #GDP112, a case of a card by Designer Connie Collins. You can see Connie’s card and the other designers and challenge entries by clicking on the icon below.
I loved Connie’s idea of using stamps to create a background or “paper” and then using a large sentiment and an embellishment to finish the design. I had thought about using stamps from Bits & Pieces as a background for some time. This challenge presented the perfect opportunity to give that idea a try! I simply too the baby t-rex stamp and the dots stamp and created a repeating pattern on a Whisper White yardstick. I colored in the baby t-rex using the Old One Stampin’ Blend. I am really loving these new Stampin’ Blends! You can learn more about them here!
Update! I won a “Special Mention” in the challenge! I am very excited the judges liked my baby t-rex card!
For the sentiment, I used the “Wild About You” from the set and colored in the word “Wild” using the Olive Stampin’ Blend. Then I cut out a baby t-rex and popped it with a dimensional beside the sentiment. Believe it or not, the DSP behind the sentiment id from the Merry Little Christmas DSP! I had a scrap laying on my craft table and it was the perfect color and had a dot pattern which fit the card design. I am finding this new holiday DSP very versatile! A few black candy dots(retired) finished off the CASE of Connie’s card.
I had a great time creating this and hope to use a few more of the stamps from this set to create a similar look!
