You make my Heart Saur with Davina

Hello crafty friends! Davina here with my second card using the January Color Snapshot. This time, instead of candy land and sugar plums fairies, I went the complete opposite direction with dinosaurs and mammoths. And the results are still the cutest!

I started this project by going through my scrap bin and pulling out colored cardstock that matched my color board. I knew I wanted blue water layers and purple star filled sky, and was happy to find enough scrap cardstock to make my card.

I began by cutting some layers from my colored cardstock using the outer stitched frame from the Clover Frame Die Set. I cut a white glitter panel, a bristle smooth layer, and a soft blue panel. I used the lovely Stargazer cover plate to cut the star filled background to layer over the glitter piece. Next I used the Breaking waves dies, to cut my blue card into two different height water layers. Then I cut the bristol smooth panel into a hilly land layer using the Slopey Joe dies. I trimmed a second little hillside from some glitter card as well.

Once all of my layers were cut, I gently inked the edges of them to create nice dimension and texture. I splattered each layer with colored ink, white ink, and glittery perfect pearls. I used my cute little Glubert glue tube to adhere the purple sky over the glitter panel. Then lining everything up at the bottom, I layered my glitter hill, the pink hill, and my two water layers are popped up on foamI stamped images from two sets into more Bristol smooth cardstock. I used the cute mammoth from Prehistoric Pals and some cuter Dinos from Dino Time using a No Line Ink from The Stamp Market. I  colored the images using Zig Real Brush Markers. I’m not super experienced using these products, but I felt I needed to start practicing more. I die cut the images using coordinating dies, and layered into my scene. I turned the brontosaurus into a water Dino by tucking him into the waves.

I heat embossed my sentiment onto some vellum, to make it easier to read, and added some solid stamped hearts from the set. I really adore how these unexpected colors, from the Color Snapshot, look with this typically boy themed set. Now it’s a lovely valentine appropriate for anyone! Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you try using this color scheme.
