CC221: Stamposarus

I made two cards today -- I had only an hour or so to create between preschool runs (HA! that is running back and forth to preschool -- not tummy problems in the little ones), lunch and swim practice. I saw that there was a new color challenge over at SCS, so I thought I would give the Kiss and Ride Tango a whirl! (kiwi kiss, riding hood red and tangerine tango)

this first card uses a tangerine background on a 4.25 square base. the tangerine is run through the swiss dots folder. I used the computer to generate the sentiment.

I think that this would make a GREAT birthday card for a BIG birthday (for someone with a good sense of humor!). I used a papertrey white button with some ribbon through it. I also used the word window punch to punch out the sentiment, but then I layered those on small scraps of red and kiwi. The dino was colored with copics.

This 4.25 square card is also on a white base, I used some fun designer paper on the background. I tried something new, sewing the kiwi ribbon right to the main image. I then used a button right on top of the kiwi ribbon, threaded with some orange floss. The button was an SU! ruby red button, but it didn't match, so I ended up coloring it with copics to make it match. Sentiment also created on the computer, then punched with the word window punch. These Pterodactyls (yes, that is the correct spelling) would look really cute with balloons in their beaks, huh?

Stamposarus will be available June 1 (yes, that is yesterday!!!!!) I actually missed my first release party -- I got sick and went to bed before 9 pm last night!

Ok...if you ever send me that b'day card I'm gonna KICK YOUR ASS! I'll go T-REX on ya. What? LOL! I actually really like this color combo...not colors I would normally pair together. And I'm LOVING the sentiments with these stamps..why..you must be a sentiment queen! LOL! Oh and No...I'm not seeing balloons working in the pteradactyl's teeth...they look like they are ready to ATTACK with those pointy chompers! LOL!
