Make It Monday: Dino Days SIP Card

After over 12 years of stamping, I tend to forget the beauty in simple creativity. A friend recently showed me a picture of a cute birthday card he made. It reminded me of my early days of stamping…the joy in just seeing what I could do with my ink and stamps before all the cool die-cutting and embossing tools. Therefore, this week I invite you to take a SIP with me…create with (S)tamps, (I)nk, and (P)aper.

I just finished designing a Dino Days Fun Folds Class To Go (see below) so thought it would be fun to create a simple card using the Dino Days stamp set for this week’s Make It Monday project.

Please share your SIP card with me! I would love to see your creativity in action!

I stamped the dinosaur in Mango Melody and sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on a Whisper White die-cut Stitched Nested die banner (ok, you can’t ask me to go cold turkey on the tools–LOL). Then I layered a Lovely Lipstick/Dinoroar strip banner for added color and pattern.

I added a 3/8″ Denim Ribbon bow for accent.  

To create my own background, I randomly stamped leaves from the Dino Days stamp set on the card base in Pool Party ink. 

I carried the dino party inside the card with a strip of the DSP and a stamped Pterodacytl from the stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink.

Now It’s Your Turn to SIP!

  1. Cut and fold in half a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Pool Party cardstock to create card base.
  2. Randomly stamp front of card base with leaves from the Dino Days stamp set in Pool Party ink. 
  3. Stamp dinosaur from Dino Days stamp set on a large Whisper White Stitched Nested die banner in Mango Melody. (NOTE: You can substitute the Nested die-cut banner with 2-5/8″ x 4-1/4″ rectangle and diagonally snip off the ends to create your own banner.)
  4. Stamp the circular texture stamp from the Dino Days stamp set on the dinosaur in Lovely Lipstick ink. 
  5. Stamp sentiment from Dino Days stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink to left of dinosaur. 
  6. Adhere banner in center of card.
