Stampin’ Up! Dino Days ~ Happy Birthday Card

Hello lovelies and a happy Sunday to you all!
I have had a beautiful day celebrating my beautiful nephew's 5th birthday. 
My gorgeous nephew Reuben just loves dinosaurs and so this Dino Days set was PERFECT for a card for him. 
This card was one I made for my mum (his Nan) to give to him and I will share the one I have made from my little family later in the week.
Scroll to the bottom of this post to see a fun picture from today!

I have used a fun collection of products in today's card, all of which I have shared at the bottom of this post and all are available in my store here.

Here's a little look at the finished card.
I had a lot of fun stamping a multi toned dinosaur from the Dino Days stamp set with this one in a combination of Just Jade and Coastal Cabana. You can achieve this look by inking up in your lightest colour and stamping, then going back over the top with a partially inked dinosaur in a darker colour using the Stamparatus. This is a fabulous stamping tool for techniques like this!

I have used the fun brand new A Grand Kid Stamp Set also to achieve this fun birthday sentiment, with a sentiment from this set used on the inside of the card also - perfect for a grand child from their Nan or Pop!

I have stuck with a fun combination of colours which you can see below.

Here's a close up of the finished card where you can see some of the detail.
I love this Early Espresso Suede Trim and it looks great with the Antique Slides! 

I also added one of the copper stars from the Star Designer Elements. These were carried over from a previous mini catalogue and I just love them!

As you can see from this picture I have used a bit of a fun background technique with one of the Dino Dies, to create some dinosaur scales which I have lightly distressed and then added some Cinnamon Cider sponging over the top using our fabulous Sponge Daubers.

I have then added some fun spritzing with a Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Write Marker.

Here's a look at the decorated inside of the card where I have added layers of Basic Black and Whisper White and stamped another dinosaur! This time I have added some Pretty Peacock ink for the dinosaur spikes! 
I have then stamped directly over the top of this with a sentiment from the A Grand Kid stamp set in Memento Black.

I have accented this with some DSP from the Neutrals 6x6 DSP stack and added some more Early Espresso Suede Trim. I love this stuff!

I hope you got some inspiration from today's card share!

Here's a picture I will leave you with today from my gorgeous nephew Reuben's party today...
My older sister lives out on a farm and this is my gorgeous niece Chloe, my nephew Reuben and my son Elijah. And yes that is a baby lamb on the trampoline! Haha!

The lamb's name is Winter and she is a gorgeous little thing. She lost her Mum and so she is being hand reared and I swear she is part dog!
Here's a picture I snapped of the gorgeous lamb....

Until next time crafty peeps. 

Big crafty hugs! xx
