Hey Stampers !!
Today I am sharing with you the SO CUTE Valentines that I made for my son to distribute to one of his play groups !! Its a bit more difficult coming up with "boy friendly" Valentines, but I was looking through my stamp sets and came across the too fun Dinoroar set, and thought it would be perfect !! Take a look, what do you think !?!?
Isn't that SO adorable !?! I think that for really little kids, too much "lovey dovey" in their Valentines is a bit much, so this sweet sentiment was the perfect match !! I just stamped a simple "Happy Valentine's Day" on the inside ... looks great !! And since I couldn't decide which dinosaur image to use, I made 3 different cards. My color combo is different pairings of Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade. Each card measures 3-1/2" square (used a 7" x 3-1/2" piece of cardstock scored and folded in half), the perfect size for a Valentine ! Then there is a 3" square piece of DSP and a 2-1/2" square piece of Whisper White that the images were stamped on. Here are some close ups of each version !!
I must admit, this one is my favorite. I love that sweet Brontosaurus !! I stamped him in Island Indigo ink and then added the little grass image (also from this sweet set) in Lucky Limeade. I then adhered the stamped square to a 3" piece of Lucky Limeade DSP from the 2011-2013 In Colors Patterns Stack. I stamped the cute sentiment in Lucky Limeade and then punched it out with the Modern Label punch, and added the cute heart from the Owl Punch. The heart got a bit of bling from some Dazzling Details and I dressed up the card base with some faux stitching using my Signo White Gel Pen. Love it !!
The T Rex card uses the same process, just with Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral.
And finally, the Triceratops in the Calypso Coral and Island Indigo. So sweet !!
And here is ALL of the Valentines !! There are a lot of them, but it didn't take me a super long time. I cut all of my papers first, then stamped all the same colors, then assembled !! i think it was worth the effort cause they are SOOOO stickin' cute !!
I hope you liked my cards today !! Thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!
