My card today features the Caffeinated Dino stamp set! I started by stamping the Dino and using my Spectrum Noir Markers to color her up! I used AG1, AG3, AG5, DP1, DP2, DP3, DP4, IG1, IG2. Then I fussy cut her out.

Then I picked out some really old Heidi Swapp pattern paper from my stash! I just receintly went through my stash and put some things in the garage sale pile. I found some older stuff that I still like, so I'm trying to make sure to use it!!

Next, I used a My Favorite Things stencil and Nuvo Embellishment Mouse - Pure Platinum. While that dried, I though I would back my dino with a vellum circle. I cut one from a strip of card stock and I happened to lay the negative strip on my white card base, this got me thinking! When my Mouse was dry I placed the negative strip over it, placing the dino in the middle of the circle. I really liked the look, so I went with it!

I stamped the #deathbeforedecaf, heat embossing it in white. To adhere vellum I always hide it behind something, as I have yet to find an adhesive that you can't see! I scattered a few gems and added the dino with foam tape!

  8. This is really a cool design and I love how you used the
    vellum negative rather than the circle only. I have some very
    old Scotch vellum tape that works perfectly. Don't know if it's
    still available OR if the fact that it's so old, it works better. lol
