Roar No More


I have wanted to make this card ever since I got my Two by Two and Dinoroar sets with the new catalogue last year.

I have been thinking about it again recently because both of these sets are on the retiring list :(  I have used them a lot but I still hadn’t attempted this card idea of mine.

The Paper Players have a clean and simple masculine challenge this week and when I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I thought it was the perfect time to give it a try.




Ingredients :

Stamps : Dinoroar, Two by two, Distressed dots

Card : pool party, white, lucky limeade

Ink : memento black, white, pool party

Other : copics, big shot, chevron ef, mds (sentiment)


It is not my own original idea, but my “take” on a funny Hallmark card I had seen a long time ago. I wanted to see if I could take inspiration from it but create my own Stampin Up version.

The original -

Noah's ark and the dinosaurs
