What's that smell?

So, as soon as I saw this dinosaur set, I had to have it. Dinosaurs have been the theme of many inside jokes among my family and friends. It all started with me saying something completely random several years ago. Even now, it's still funny.

Anyway, this is one of the new sets I received today. I went with a simple scene, stamping the palm trees, and cutting out the stegosaurus and popping him forward. I wanted some extra texture, and thought that Canvas would go nicely. Finally, I was in the mood for a square theme, and isn't it just perfect that the Happy Birthday sentiment fits so nicely as a border on a 4.25 square card! I finished off the corners with one of my hoarded embellishments- Earth Elements buttons.

Stamps: It's Your Birthday, Prehistoric Pals, Canvas BG
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Paper: White, Wasabi, Rust, Cocoa
Accessories, etc.: dimensionals, buttons, stamp-a-ma-jig (even though I have unmounted this greeting set, for this type of placement, the SAMJ is crucial if you don't want to mis-stamp!)


  1. super cute! TFS! just got my stamp order but only got two stamp sets- one is the hostess benefit and the other i got with the hostess money. i MADE myself only order paper and punches that will allow me to do more with what i already have and don't use enough.

  2. I love this card!! I want this set really badly, but I think I'm going to wait until SAB starts so that I'll earn at least one free set (I already bought one, but that's all I could bring myself to purchase instead of earn!). I really like everything about this card, TFS!

  3. Natasha, this card really smells...
