I love the Dino Days stamp set and coordinating Dino dies for handmade Children's cards. Today's card is a Birthday Card for my Grandson, Brennan who loves dinosaurs.
The Dinoroar Designer Paper was a welcome addition to complete today's birthday card. The dinosaurs were actually cut from the designer paper!
I fashioned the unique card opening the same way that I did in the card in the video below. It's fun to shake things up and do the unexpected when paper crafting.

With school in full swing, I thought that it would be fun to do something a little different. for today's blog post lets look at an Apples & Pumpkins Unit Study for Kids using the Apple Punch and the Harvest Hellos stamp set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. This unit study includes 12 ways to use the Harvest Hello Bundle for Art, Math, Science and Language Arts. Watch the video below for a demonstration, then scroll down for a list of 12 Apple & Pumpkin activities for kids.
Apples & Pumpkins Unit Study for Kids

Stamp and color leaves and stems, then add a 3-dimensional Pumpkin or Apple.

Here come the Dinosaurs, hear them roar! When I saw the Dino Days stamp set in the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog, I knew that I would have to have it. It's just so stinkin' cute, plus I have grandsons that are wild about dinosaurs. Today's card is a quick and easy sample of what you can do with the Dino Days stamp set.
I simply stamped my dinosaurs in an array of colors including Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Lovely Lipstick. Then, I embossed the whole thing with my Corrugated Embossing Folder.
