Started this project by stamping the Dinosaur with Basic Black ink on a 4.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.

Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and heat gun.

Colored the underside of the dinosaur with a So Saffron marker.

Added Certainly Celery to the edges of the underside of the dinosaur.

Colored in the rest of the Dinosaur using a Lucky Limeade marker.

Added Old Olive marker to the dinosaur’s back, 2 legs and the edges of the Lucky Limeade areas.

Colored over the Dinosaur with a Versamark Marker (be careful to stay within the embossed image) and heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder.

Brayered More Mustard ink at an angle over 1/2 of the card stock.

Brayered Cajun Craze ink at an angle, not cover the More Mustard ink entirely.

Brayered Island Indigo ink at the opposite side of the card stock at an angle.

Brayered Not Quite Navy ink at an angle, not covering the Island Indigo ink entirely.

Ripped a post it not in a mountain shape to use as a mask to create the mountains.

Sponged Island Indigo ink in at mountain shape and then moved the post it note and sponged in the second mountain.


Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.

Sponged Basic Black ink at the very bottom of the card stock.

Punched two 1 3/8″ Squares from Cajun Craze card stock and two 1″ squares from More Mustard ink.  Cut the squares in half at an angle.

Added a 5″ x 6.5″ Basic Black panel, 4.75″ x 6.25″ Old Olive Panel, 4.5″ x 5″ Basic Black panel, the triangles and Basic Black brads.

Here is the finished project measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May you be right were you want to be today.

  1. Nice card. I like the way the triangles on the sides reflect the triangular mountains.

  2. Great use of this stamp set! When coloring over an image with your Versamarker, how do you get it not to bleed and smear? Also, I see in your description that someone can join Stampin’ Up! and become a “Hobby Demo.” Could you explain what that is, and how it’s different from a regular demo? Thanks!
