Stegosaurus Family Baby Card

stegosaurus-couple-baby-card

So, I finally figured out how to execute the baby card I had in my head. This is something one of my cousins requested, it is an A6 card (a little bigger than my usual card).

I stamped the mirror image stegosaurus (the one on the right) first – because I kept screwing it up. Took about 6 tries to get it right (with a MISTI and a Paper Smooches Mirror block), and Jennifer’s McGuire’s very helpful Mirror Stamping video streaming while I was working. After that was done, I stamped the other stegosaurus and the baby, and masked them all. Next came the nest, rocks and trees, and they got masked as well. I blended ink for the grass and sky. After removing all my masks, I said a silent prayer that I WOULD NOT SCREW UP while coloring with my Copic markers!

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Lawn Fawn, Paper Smooches, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango, inks – Copic E23, E53, N1, N4, W1, W3, W7, YG23, YG25, YG95, YR0000, YR04, YR09, Y0000, Y18, Y26, Y28, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Stampin’ Up!

Stegosaurus Baby Note Card

stegie-baby-congrats

For this card, I built a little scene of stegosaurus Mom and baby. Masked both of them, and added the oval nest. Masked the nest, and blended the sky and grass. After removing the masks, I decided to use dots of Copics to color (and more blending) the stegosauruses – a natural camo.
