Clearly Digi Stamps - July Release - Dinos Cards

It's that time I love when Clearly Digi Stamps reveals the new digi stamp sets for the month. These are my first two cards of four that I'm posting today. Since I have five grandsons, I'm always looking for cool dinosaurs! I made two cards with two of the new images from the set called Dinos by Patrick Dunnigan. You'll want to visit the Clearly iStamp blog to see the other image and more samples.

This T-Rex is definitely scary, perfect for fans of Jurassic Park!

This stegosaurus is especially cute and not quite so scary!

Both cards are fabulous Vickie. The images are great, although I always rather liked the idea of dinosaurs being a hot pink colour, and as no one was around millions of years ago who is to say I am not right, lol

The backing papers you have picked are perfect for the images.

Thank you for sharing with us
