Dino Days Friend-a-Saurus Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
It's not typically my style, but I have to say that I adore the Dinoroar Suite of products!  Those little dinosaurs are super-cute and I love all of the "rawr-some" coordinating paper patterns. I'm always in need of kids/boys cards, and these products make it fun & easy!
Enjoy Dino Days Cards All Week—Apparently, I'm not the only stamper who's loving this suite!  I received 10 Dinoroar-themed cards from the swaps in which I participated last month!  So, I thought it would be fun to spend a few days sharing those Dinoroar ideas with you!  I'll be sharing 2 cool cards today, 2 more cards tomorrow, featuring the Dinoroar products on my weekly LIVE Class on my Facebook Page on Thursday at 9am ET, and posting even more Dino ideas over at my Too Cool Stamping VIP group!

Dino Days Quick Friend-a-Saurus Card

This adorable card, created by Megan Herst, is super-quick to make!  

Background Basics—Megan started by stamping the Dino Days branch image in the upper right and lower left corners of a vertically-folded Thick Whisper White card base. The base measures 4-1/4" x 11" and is scored at the 5-1/2" mark.  The image is inked one time, then stamped several times without re-inking to get a varied effect. Next, she adhered a 4-1/4" x 3" piece of coordinating leafy pattern from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper across the center with SNAIL adhesive.

Sweet Sentiment—The Dino Days greeting was stamped in Old Olive ink onto a 4-1/4" x 1-1/2" piece of Old Olive cardstock and adhered across the front with SNAIL.

Dashing Dino—Megan stamped the dinosaur in Lovely Lipstick ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die-cut him with the coordinating Dino Dies. He's popped up with Dimensionals. 

Finishing Touches—I love the cute little Dinoroar Enamel Shapes accents that were added to give another pop of color.

Dino Days Pterodactyl Friend-a-Saurus Card

This friend-a-saurus card, created by Sheri Uchimyama, has a few more layers for a collaged focal point.

Background Basics—Sheri stamped the Dino Days cluster of circles image in Pretty Peacock ink on the top right and bottom left of a Pool Party card base. Next, she layered a 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Dinoroar DSP onto a 3-3/4" x 4-3/4" piece of Crushed Curry.  She tied some White Baker's Twine around the layers before mounting them onto the card front.

Sweet Sentiment—The Dino Days sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it with the Everyday Label Punch. She punched another Everyday Label shape from Pretty Peacock cardstock, cut it in half vertically, then positioned the halves on either side to frame the sentiment.  It's popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals. She also punched three Old Olive branches using the Leaf Punch and tucked them under the sentiment layer with Glue Dots.

Focal Point—Sheri stamped the pterodactyl shape in Crushed Curry onto Whisper White cardstock, die-cut it with the Dino Dies and popped it up.  She finished by coloring a couple Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker and adding them to either side of the greeting.
