Hope Your Day is Dino-Mite!!

Happy Thursday, y'all! Hope everyone had lots of fun on Halloween! My kids had a great time, but have been so tired since then. We are playing a little catch-up in our house!

Today, Pink Cat Studio has some awesome new digi's available. Check these cuties out!
-->Don't forget to purchase today, so you can get the free image!<--

I created 2 cards using the new Dino images. I have 2 boys (5 & 7), so they are perfect for boy birthdays which we go to a lot of!
Up first is the image with the 2 dinos.
I used some Basic Grey Archaic DP - perfect for boy dino cards, along with some River Rock cardstock (retired SU) and Dark Chocolate CS from PTI. The 'ca-ute' sentiment is one of the FREEBIES from PCS found here. I used the Curved Rectangle Nesties to cut out the image and a Tag Trio Nestie for the sentiment. I airbrushed the sentiment with some YG91 Copic Marker. I added lots of buttons and hemp twine (all PTI) along with some brown stitching (not too girly) to finish off this card. I find that I have lots of great elements for cards, but they seem to girly for boys cards. I would love for you to leave me a comment with some boy-ish elements that you use on your cards - I always need ideas on this!

Here is a close-up of these Dino Pals. I added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and balloon for some dimension.

Here is card #2. I used the same paper line, but different pattern along with the Dino with Cake image. If you look closely, he has taken a CHOMP out of his cake!

I used more buttons (PTI), pinking Nesties, Labels Trio Nesties, Stickles, and Glossy Accents on this card. For the horizontal panel, I ran it through my CB with the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder and then sponged some Dark Chocolate ink (PTI) around the edges. The sentiment is from Amy R stamps.

Here is a close-up. I think his eyes are a little milky because I took the picture before it was totally dry! Oops!

Hop on over to all of the other DT members blogs and check out more Dino-licious ideas!!

Love your cutie pies, Tori! We used the same two images this week. ;) I love the glassy eyes and Rex's sparkly cake!

Fantastic cards! I love the papers and the colours. The glossy accents on the eyes is such a great idea - it looks really effective.
