Hi! Happy Hump Day! Hope you’re week is going well, and you’re managing to find some crafty time? I’ve been creating all this week for various events both live and online – I hope you’ll be able to join me for some of them!
This week, I needed a card for my nephew – so I turned to the set No Bones About It from Stampin’ Up! I mean, when it comes to small boys, you can’t go wrong with dinosaurs, can you?
This fun and colourful card strikes me as spot on!

- However, fun techniques and elements add interest. Here I’ve doubled the banner end up – it was actually to cover a mistake, but I like how the solution came out!
- Today’s technique – taking a stacked sentiment and stamping it in a single line – check out my how-to video below:
