Festive Christmas Dinosaurs

Merry Christmas Eve!!  The holidays seemed to sneak up so fast this year!  I hope you enjoy my pair of dinosaur projects using Your Next Stamps Dino-mite Holiday -- these little dudes look very excited that Christmas is here.

I am entering both of these projects into the current Your Next Stamp Challenge #194 - Gifts.  I posted the snowglobe project yesterday on my Instagram HERE.

I intended to make it a shaker snowglobe, but realized the sequins would end up drowning that happy little raptor.  So, I added the elements with dimension and still enclosed with an acetate window.  It will accompany a gift for my eldest this year.  (She LOVES dinosaurs just like I do.)

The second card I created with a pencil and ruler.  I very lightly traced lines every 0.5" after stamping my sentiment (1" from the top of the card) and dinosaur image so I would know his placement when adding my rows of sequins.

Using a jewel tool, I ran a line of glue along my pencil line and then started adding bling!  I decided to do each row a single color.  I used the beautiful Christmas Confetti mix from Mixing My Way.

Isn't it so fun?!  I used the white(r) bits to break up the space around our jolly dino to mimic snowfall.  Then I colored him up on a scrap of paper using OLO Markers and adhered him above his shadow layer beneath with dimension (doubling the layer beneath his head so it would stick out just a bit more).  This card just screams holiday happy to me (and I hope it makes you smile).

Who do you like he is delivering those gifts too?  (Maybe he's the prehistoric Santa of old.. lol)  Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you have a warm and cozy holiday!  Much love to you all!
