Dino Love & Geometric Rainbow

Hello and happy Sunday!  I've had a bit of crafty time this weekend which has been lovely so I have a couple of cards to share with you.  First up is a card inspired by Kim's design over at Freshly Made Sketches.  These sweet little MFT dinos are NBUS for me.  I coloured them with Copics, fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape in front of an MFT heart.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White, Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Prehistoric Fun) My Favourite Things
Ink:  (Intense Black) Simon Says Stamp
Die:  (Heart Stax) My Favourite Things
Makers:  (YG03, YG06, YG23, YG63, YG67, YG91) Copic
Glitter: (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig

Next up is a card inspired by Jenni's Muse creation.  I wanted to try a technique that Heather from Houses Built of Cards shared here that involves dabbing Distress Inks directly onto the card and then spritzing it with water.  Looking more closely at Heather's card now I think I should have used the other side of the watercolor paper but I'm pretty happy with this for a first try. 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Watercolor) Ranger, (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Spot On) Lil' Inker Designs
Inks:  (Jet Black Archival Ink, (Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet) Ranger
Die:  (Diamond Parade) Simon Says Stamp
Gems:  Recollections

I love crafty weekends! You really made use of yours with two fabulous cards. The simplicity of the first speaks right to my heart, but so does the experimentation (with fabulous results) of the second.

Yay for a crafty weekend! Your dinos are darling and your Distress Ink dabbing is super cool! Hope you are getting more crafty time today too!

Your dinosaurs are so sweet, Jen ... just adorable (and adoring!) with that big background heart! Oh my, that rainbow of delicious colour ... swooning ... it's spectacular! Hugs, Anita :)

Love both cards, Jen. The rainbow colors are so rich and vibrant. Wonderful take on Jenni's card.

Awww! These dines are so sweet! And your use of distress inks on your Muse card looks so very cool.

Super fun interpretation of Jenni's Muse card; love the effect that the distress inks and spritzing created.
