Ally Oop, Oop…Dinosaurs!

Hello Friends!

I have 4 Cards to show you today!

I had some Dinosaur DSP I needed to use, but I didn’t

purchase the Stamp Set! Soooo…I strolled to Hobby Lobby,

I found these cute Dinosaur puffy stickers to use, instead!

Here are the Cards!


Aren’t they Cute?


Here are the backs of the Cards!


Kept them simple…for signing and adding that personal note!


Here are the Cards singularly!

Card #1


Gorgeous Grape Cardstock!


Card #2


Old Olive Cardstock!


Card #3


Terracotta Tile Cardstock!


Card #4


Pretty Peacock Cardstock!



All Card bases, 4.25″ x 8″ score @ 1.25″, 2.5″, 5.5″, and 5.75″

I took a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of cardstock (normal A2 size) I cut down to 4.25″ x 8″

Now score all the scores on the 8″ side (landscape)

The piece cut from the 8″ side, cut down to 5.5″ (this is the bridge piece)

Cut DSP- 4 pcs. 1″ x 4″ (or just 2 pcs and use Neutral cardstock for the 2 inside panels.)

Cut 1 piece of cardstock 1″ x 5.25″ (for the bridge piece)

I used 2 DSP pcs and 2 stamped Whisper White pcs. for the 4 front side panels

Cut 2 panels, 2.75″ x 4″ (center panels for front and back of card.)


Tropical Chic- leaves on 2 Whisper White front panels, prints at base of palm tree

Beach Happy- the palm tree on the front panel

Picture Perfect Birthday- back panel sentiment


Old Olive, Soft Suede- palm tree

Crumb Cake- prints at base of palm tree

Terracotta Tile- sentiment on back, to match cardstock

Pretty Peacock- sentiment on back, to match cardstock

Old Olive- sentiment on back, to match cardstock

Pacific Point- sentiment on back of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock


Here are the Cards, again!


I still have a few pieces of DSP left over from the pack,

I will have to go buy more dinosaurs!

I probably will make regular A2 Cards

from the scraps and leftover 6″ x 6″ pcs.




When a new Catalog or Mini Catalog is ready to come out, being Demonstrators, we get to pre-order DSP, ribbon, and elements ahead of time. I  usually do not buy what I am not sure of…so other demonstrators have “shares” they offer for a price. I usually order the ‘DSP’ only shares to see, in person, the DSP, before I buy. It also will dictate wether I buy more items from the ‘Suite’. The Dinosaur DSP and stamp set, just wasn’t on my to get list.

I did buy the share, and the Dinosaur DSP was in it. I get a pack of 2 pcs., 6″ x 6″ of each page of the DSP. I had to figure out how to use this up! I do have some young nephews now, so I will now be using these up too! BTW, girls like dinosaurs too!

I did make 2 each of these Cards for a total of 16 cards! I’m set for awhile!

Use the bridge Card measurements to make other kinds of cards! It is a real different fold and it does fit into out Medium size envelopes too! Just the same size as an A2 card! Have Fun! Experiment! You’ll be Glad you DID!!!!!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Dinosaur Roawr’s to you ALL!

Let me know what you think!
