Volcano and Pterodactyl Valentine Card

The Valentine puns continue…

For Offspring1, in honor of  all of the dinosaur books we read.

I die cut the volcano shape out of the teal paper, and inset the Copic colored volcano into the teal paper. I popped the pterodactyl up on some foam tape (hoping that it gives the perspective that he is flying way above the spewing lava).

Heart and Ion Valentine Card

Really, I only need punny Valentine cards! The cornier the better!

(And to my Chemistry savvy friends – I am aware that the image is NOT the proper diagram for an ion – I hope you will forgive me. The closest I could get with my stamps!)

Supplies:  Stamps – My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Reverse Confetti From Cupid, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, inks – Copic R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Simon Says Stamp (banner strip), Spellbinders (circles).

Blue City Skyline Adventure Card

Offspring1 took a job opportunity on the other coast, and he and his girlfriend just moved recently.

Very proud of him, very happy for them, very excited for their new adventure.

The sentiment is not as wonky in person (I did redo the sentiment after the photo – it was better, still not perfect – tiny sentiment stamps are difficult!).

I also made a pastel version of this – just because my Copics were speaking to me after the first image was colored. Sentiment TBD because I couldn’t commit to blocking any of the pastel buildings!

Supplies:  Stamps – PinkFresh Studio, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), Curious Metallics Blueprint, inks – Copic (dark version) B24, B39, C1, C3, C5, C7, Y18, (pastel version) B00, BG01, BV00, G00, R20, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Amethyst Hummingbird Birthday Card

Part of the “birthday cards requested by mother-in-law” collection. Another scrap of sparkly paper for the hummingbird.

I stamped and die cut the flowers on green and yellow paper, then fussy cut the yellow blooms to be glued on top of the green ones.

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Stardream Metallics Amethyst, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Newton’s Nook (flowers, hummingbird), Simon Says Stamp (banner), Spellbinders (circle), embossing folder – We R Memory Keepers, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
