Be Extinct


I'm sharing a card i made for the STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #20. Here's the sketch:

And here is my card:

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps

 As you can see i took a few liberties with the sketch! Flipped it on it side AND made the strips wide.... like almost wide as the card base! :) Hey i was having fun and i was dealing with a cold so ..... i went with it!

I started by stamping a piece of white card stock with several of the small images from the The Alley Way Stamps new September release. I cut the panel in to four pieces, then ....... decided to die cut a heart from the strips. I adhered the strips to my white card base.

Next i stamped, colored and cut out one of the dinos from the Livin' Fossils. I added the dino to my card base with foam dots. Last i stamped a sentiment from the new Prehistoric set, i stamped it in brown inside the die cut heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
