Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase week 18 - Gorgeous Grape


It's week 18 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase. This week we are featuring the beautiful and bold Gorgeous Grape. I love this fun, funky colour perfect for kids cards.

I dusted off my Dino Days stamp set and had a great time creating these fun cards.

For the first card I stamped the dinosaurs and fussy cut them. The grass is cut using Friendly Silhouettes Dies from Granny Apple Green card stock. 

I used the cloud die from the Happy Dies to cut a mask to sponge the sky in both cards in Balmy Blue. 

The trees were stamped over the sky background in Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive.
The greeting is embossed in White on Gorgeous Grape card stock.

The second card is a stepped up version of the first. I added a slider mechanism so that the dinosaurs move past each other across the card.

I watched a video on Pinterest by Pear Blossom Press to construct the slider mechanism.

Apart from the slider the only difference with this card is that there are no palm trees and the greeting is from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set.

For more gorgeous Gorgeous Grape creations pop over to Cathy's blog for a complete list of tonight's participants.

Thank you fro visiting and I hope you enjoyed my projects.

Happy stamping,
