Want to tell someone you’re wild about them? What could be wilder that dinosaurs? The dinosaur on today’s card is from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set, and the coordinating Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper is just adorable.

I used the Mirror Stamping Technique to get two different dinosaurs from the same stamp, which sounds more complicated than it is. You simply stamp your image onto a piece of clear Window Sheet, flip it over, and rub the back to transfer the ink to the paper.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Emerald Envy card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Sahara Sand CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Emerald Envy CS cut to 4″ x 2-1/8″
  • Flirty Flamingo CS cut to 3-7/8″ x 2″
  • Crushed Curry CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 1-7/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-5/8″ x 1-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/2″ for the inside

Stamped with the Pieces & Patterns stamp set:

  • dinosaur in black ink onto the small Whisper White CS
  • dinosaur in black ink onto a piece of Window Sheet
  • quickly turned the Window Sheet over and pressed it to the Whisper White CS piece, rubbing the back to transfer the ink from the Window Sheet to the CS
  • NOTE: if you don’t get as good a transfer as you would like, you can go over the image with the fine point of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • sentiment in black ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White CS

Cut using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch:

  • tiny heart from a scrap of Flirty Flamingo CS

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • inside sentiment in Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand, Emerald Envy, and Crushed Curry

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • tiny heart glued onto the Whisper White CS with the dinosaurs
  • Whisper White CS with dinosaurs glued onto the Crushed Curry CS
  • Crushed Curry CS glued onto the Flirty Flamingo CS
  • Flirty Flamingo CS glued onto the Emerald Envy CS
  • Emerald Envy CS glued onto the DSP layer
  • DSP layer glued onto the Sahara Sand CS layer
