Airplane Flyer


My ombre design was created with a stamp from the Waterfront Stamp Set and Night of Navy Ink. I began stamping at the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and without re-inking the stamp, I stamped a second and third time. This was repeated three times, and then I cut the layer to size with a Rectangles Stitched Die.


In addition to ombre, I wanted to use the sketch from the Fusion challenge. Here’s a look.


To go along with the sketch, I adhered two rows of Whisper White Flax Ribbon with Tear&Tape.

Next, I stamped my airplane flying boy, from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. After cutting him with a Stitched Shapes Oval Die, he took his place on top of Dimensionals


Before gluing my ombre striped background to a Night of Navy card base, I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy Ink.

“Time for a new adventure!” is from the Well Said Stamp Set.

The envelope is one I had on hand, and I can’t remember stamping the flap, but thought it looked good with this card.


Thank you for visiting today. In case you’re wondering about the paper I used for photographing, it’s from See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. I included it in my Product List, so you can see all 12 designs in the pack. Clicking on the picture takes you to my store for shopping. Enjoy!

Dino Days Card Says “You’re RAWRsome!”

Today’s Dino Days card begins with triangles, a sketch, and certain colors on my mind.

You’re RAWRsome!


The Fusion challenge has me thinking about these things. Do you see the sketch, triangles, dark gray, light gray, white, and yellow?


The Basic Gray card base is layered with Whisper White Cardstock, a 6X6 Daffodil Delight Designer Paper, and a 2″ strip of Smoky Slate Cardstock.

The Smoky Slate strip has tiny triangles, cut with one of the Dino Dies (three times), and is layered on Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped “You’re RAWRsome!” in Memento Black Ink. This is one of several, very cute, sentiments in the Dino Days Stamp set.



My Dino is stamped in Smoky Slate Ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, and cut with his matching Dino Die. The “triangles” across his back are stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink, cut with its matching die, and glued to Dino. Dino is placed on Dimensionals, and my card is complete.



You’ll find the Dino Days Bundle in my Product List, which is 10% less than buying the stamp set and dies separately. I highly recommend this bundle!

Thank you for visiting Dino today. He thinks “You’re RAWRsome!”
