DT Challenge: Pick one (or two) from the past

Hello!  I am here today with our DT Challenge where we are scouring the archives of our past challenges and picking one.  (I picked two.)  I selected our June 2010 one - Getting Krafty and our April 2012 - Felt (using our awesome wool Pollika Felt).

For my card I used the new Paper Smooches Cutasaurus set, stamped in Memento Black, and then die-cut from the new BG Kneehighs paper and Teresa Collins' Christmas Cottage using the coordinating Dino 1 dies.  I made the grass and cloud using felt, ZigZag die and Puffy Clouds die.  Then I stamped (also in Memento Black) one of the images from Streamers and cut it with the coordinating Streamers die.  Finally I stamped the greeting from Birthday Sampler in Memento Toffee Crunch and Rhubarb Stalk.  I popped that up on double dimensional dots and attached the felt pieces with our own 1/4" ATG tape.  The dinos are also popped up on dots.  It was a fun card to make and it was super fun to look through all of our old challenges.

Stop by and see what the rest of the i {heart} papers team did:

A few other things to mention while I've got you here.  This will be our last regularly scheduled monthly challenge.  The team participates in lots of existing challenges regularly so we're going to skip doing our monthly coordinated one.  Also, Taylor, who has been my right hand person for the past 6 months, will be stepping down from her social media position at the end of the month (boo!) but will join the design team as a regular member (yay!).  I couldn't stand to be without her in some capacity and she'll still be filling in on the social media side as our backup.  Additionally, I am thrilled to be welcoming Libby Hickson as our new social media coordinator (double yay!) beginning April 1 and look forward to all of you getting to know her a little better through her work here at IHP.

And, one last reminder about our 12x12 Collection Pack sale.  It will be ending soon so this is really your last chance to get these great kits at a great price!

Thank you for your continued support of IHP.  There's no way we'd be here without it.  Please make sure you check in on our Facebook page, too!  We share news, updates, inspiration, and the occasional giveaway!

Dang those dinos are cute! I have the stamps and now I think I NEED the dies too (it's a vicious cycle that you have created- and I'm glad to be a part of ;)!)
