Hello and welcome! This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness with a fun project featuring product from the TLC Designs Shop!
Today I am featuring a different take on the adorable baby turtle in the Turtle-iscious stamp set! I had some scraps of dinosaur pattern paper in my scrap drawer (#boymom) and thought the little turtle would EASILY make a cute little baby Dino! I grabbed my Happy Dragonfly Circle die set and die cut the scalloped circle out of some green polka dot paper, and then die cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using the double stitched circle in the same die set! I love how these layer together!!!! I ink blended my Bristol circle with Distress Oxides in Orange Marmalade and Mowed Lawn.
Next I Copic-colored the cutie-patootie and fussy cut him out. Once I layed out my card design I decided the pattern background paper overwhelmed my image, so I decided to use a strip of brown cardstock to break up the background some and make the baby Dino the star! I added some texture by dry embossing the brown strip with a brick embossing folder. Every thing was then glued to a 4x4" card base. Square cards aren't something I create often, but I really like the symmetry it provided this specific design.
One of my favorite thing to do with sentiment stamps that are made from quality photopolymer is CURVE THEM! Using my Misti stamping tool, I was able to lightly curve the "You're a rare find!" sentiment from the Alicorn Happiness stamp set. I felt it matched my baby dinosaur spectacularly! I heat embossed it in black embossing powder for a little shine.
And that is how my card went from Turtle-iscious to DINO-Mite!!
