Basic Grey Dinos

I love the Basic Grey Dino stamp set and Archaic papers. Here are a couple of the cards I have made with them.
For this first card I used Kraft cardstock for my base, orange cardstock from Coordinations, a couple of the papers from the Archaic line and some scraps for the bone tag.

For the bone tag I punched out two sizes of circles with my punches and then used my small oval punch to create the tab. I inked all of the edges with some distress ink and then inked up the bone stamp with white acrylic paint and stamped it on the tag. I added an orange brad and some twine to finish the tag them mounted it to the card with pop dots. The dino was stamped in staz-on timber brown, cut out and mounted with pop dots.

For the second card I stamped the dino with green on vanilla and then used a mask to sponge some distress ink on the bottom of the panel to look like ground. I stamped the greeting on some of the Archaic papers, cut them out and mounted them on the card. For piercing around the circle of Archaic paper I used a plastic canvas circle as my guide. For the lines in the green strip, I used my scor-pal.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a fabulous day!
