Dinosaur Designs-Cards in Bundle #4

Love You!

Love You Card- Printable Dinosaur Card Kit


That’s the dinosaur card first up in the “almost” latest card bundle! I messed up posting the chronological order of the dinosaur card bundles, as mentioned in the last post – but here they are, one at a time!

The Rakeasaurus!

This little dino is dressed in a snazzy orange scarf and she’s busy raking Fall leaves. Besides a birthday or general greeting card she makes a nice seasonal card and has some cute extras for customizing!

Autumn Leaves- Dinosaur Printable Card

The Nurseodon

I wanted to make a nurse card kit to thank staff members at a nursing home where a family member resides. She’s also suitable for “Get Well”, Nurse’s Day, or whatever sentiments you think your favorite nurse might need to hear!

Nurses' Dinosaur Card- Printable


The Skateadon

This happy dinosaur ice skates along blissfully in her red and white scarf and hat! Her card kit comes with some fun extras (like a pair of mittens) and she works nicely for a winter season card, birthday or all occasion card!

Ice Skating Dinosaur Card Kit

If I haven’t mentioned it before, after you print and cut them out, all card sizes are approximately 5″ x 7″


See you soon with the rest of the card characters in Bundle #4!








Meet the Printable Dinosaurs in Bundle #4!

Funny Dinosaur Cards- Bundle 4

I’ve had missing dinosaurs.

Soooo- I managed to start posting the designs from Bundle 5 thinking I had posted the bundle 4 kits. Going back to do a “make up post” I couldn’t locate the photos! Sheesh, sometimes I wonder where I left my brain. I’m happy to report both brain and dinosaur pictures have been found, hence this post.

Above (top row) you’ll see the Love You card, Rakeasaur, and Nurseodon printable dinosaur cards.

In the center is the Skateodon (she’s such a happy little ice skating dinosaur!)

The bottom row features Marie Antoinette in Let Them Eat Cake, the Sexysaurus, the Thank You card and finally the Cocoa and a Good Book card!

I’ll post close-ups of each card soon!

Messy Art Supplies

Cheerful mayhem describes my studio.

I’ll jot sketch ideas on scraps of paper, post it notes, on the back of a napkin or whatever is handy when an amusing dinosaur idea pops into my head. I suppose the ideas and notes should go into a nice tidy file, but my brain doesn’t want to do that.

One perk of a disorganized art system is the surprise of coming across a quickly jotted note I’d forgotten about. Weirdly, it’s like opening a gift. My usual response is:

“Oooh, look! A fun idea I’ve already thought of!”

These two dinosaurs fall into that category.

It’s “Gone With the Wind”, dino-style. Rex Butler and Scarlett O’Saurus are actually two separate cards but this quick photo (with cut out speech bubble mockups) shows them here together, before their epic breakup.

Dinosaurs Rex Butler & Scarlett

Of course they’ll have some fun extras for customizing the cards. Each card kit will include the speech bubbles seen above and at least one more! A warning for those with delicate constitutions:

Rex actually swears in his speech bubble.

I’ll post the rest of the cards bundle in a day or two so you can see what I’ve been working on.

See you soon!

Copyrighting Dinosaurs?

Tyrannosaurus Dinosaur Arms Cartoon

You probably don’t know this but up until recently I taught herb gardening classes online.

Over a period of seven years 10,000 students went though my free online class.  There were class videos (they are still available on Youtube) and students could sign up to receive the corresponding handouts.

Besides lots of students I also had content thieves! I didn’t know what they were for a long time.

Content thieves steal your stuff. Sometimes they reword or “spin” it with software made especially for that purpose and then they post it as their own material. Ick.

It was frustrating and heartbreaking to find that more than one person had gone though my class, stolen my materials and started their own website (and garden class in one case) using my “spun” content. Grrrr. I tried several things to “fix” the problem but didn’t have much luck. They popped up elsewhere.

For this reason when I started creating dinosaur cards I thought it was important to learn how to copyright my designs with the U.S. Copyright office. While copyrighting designs won’t keep content thieves away, it gives a gal a legal leg to stand on if someone swipes her goofy dinosaur designs!

Thanks to some very helpful videos by attorney Kiffanie Stahle at theartistsjd I was able to navigate the copyright process with only a little crying and now I file copyright applications for all of my dinosaur watercolors. (Thanks Kiffanie!)

Soooo…before you ever see new designs posted online they all go through the copyright application process which just goes to show:

You can teach an old dinosaur new tricks and you can copyright them!

And now for the rest of the story, or in this case, the rest of the card bundle.

The previous post showcased the first few cards in bundle #3 and here are the rest for you!

First up-

The Yogasaur! She’s fun and flexible as she rocks those flowery yoga pants. Here is a picture of her “extras” for customizing your card and a pair of SheWrecks Dino Arms!

Yogasaur Printable Dinosaur Card Kit

And the card front:

Funny Yoga Card With Dinosaur


Queen Victoriasaurus is NOT amused.

Her card has some cute extras and as an all occasion card she’s also a fun card for “that thing that didn’t go quite as planned”.

Printable Dinosaur Card Queen Victoria Not Amused



The Sorrysaurus is a printable sorry card or apology card. He can also be used for pet sympathy when a friend loses a beloved pet. If you aren’t sure what to say, the card kit includes a ‘sorry for your loss’ extra.

Dinosaur Funny Card- Printable Apology I'm Sorry Card



Wine tasting? Wine party? Girl’s night out? The Wineasaur card is the best dinosaur wine card!

The card extras are fun and work for all those occasions.

Dinosaur Card- Wineasaur Wine Tasting Card

I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I enjoyed designing them for you!

As always, you can buy any of the download-able printable card kits in the Shop!

Dinosaur Cards- Yippee! It’s Bundle #3

Have you ever laughed until you cried?

Several people have had that reaction to a few cards in this bundle. I LOVE when that happens!

If you missed this post about the new Dinosaur cards in bundle # 3 here is a recap photo!

Dinosaur Card Bundle # 3

The first four cards in the top row are-from left to right:

The Leafasaurus

This cute dinosaur trying to catch an Autumn leaf makes a great Fall card. Of course it can be used for all occasions and there are some cute extras included!

Cute Dinosaur Printable Fall Leaf Card

The Mapasaur

Miss someone? “Wish You Were Here” are some of the sentiments included with the extras in this dinosaur card.

Cute Dinosaur Miss You Printable Card


The Famous Mona Lizard

She’s a rare enigmatic beauty for sure. The barely perceptible serene smile, the quiet demeanor. No wonder she’s the world’s most famous painting…and she’s an all occasion card!

Mona Lisa as Dinosaur Funny PrintableCard

Pigskin Football Season card

If Renaissance paintings aren’t your cup of tea, maybe you’re a football fan?

This pigskin football doesn’t seem to be enjoying the game as much as the dinosaur but I’ll bet your favorite football fan will like it! Fun extras come with this printable card.

In the next post I’ll share the remaining four cards in the bundle.

Take a peek at the newest cards in on the Shop page and purchase your favorites here!

More (Dinosaur) Cards From Bundle #2

Well, of COURSE they’re dinosaur cards!

It’s what we do 😉

In the last post I shared the first four cards in bundle #2.

We’ll take a look at the rest of them here!

This first card had me giggling as I sketched it. I sat thinking about my (much) younger days and drowning heartbreak sorrows in a vat of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream. It usually worked beautifully and so I call this one:

the Ice Cream Therapy Card

Printable Funny Dinosaur Card- Ice Cream Overdose

Meet the Finger Puppets card!

Just the thought of a tyrannosaurus delightedly playing with finger puppets is amusing.

I’m probably not the only one that  thinks that, either.

The Finger Puppets dinosaur card is definitely an all occasion card, and great for “never grow up” birthday sentiments!

Funny Dinosaur Card Dino with Finger Puppets


Next we have the Ice Creamadon with that happy face and ice cream cone.

Dinosaur + chocolate ice cream = happy face!

This is another all occasion, birthday, summer or seasonal card.

Printable Dinosaur Card- Eating Ice Cream

The last fellow to round out the bundle is

the Gentleman Stylodon! 

He’s a bit steam punk/ Victorian and has an air of dignity most dinosaurs don’t possess.

Just sayin’.

He’s a great all around card for that dapper gent you know that admires style, dinosaurs and a nice pocket watch.

Funny Dinosaur Printable Card for Man-Stylish Dinosaur in Top Hat

I know I’ve said it before but in case you missed it, each card is printable (you’ll get a pdf file) and comes with an envelope template, instructions and a sheet of extra goodies to help you personalize your card! They’re really fun to do and when you hand it to the recipient you can proudly say, ” I made it myself…sort of.”

You can purchase your favorite cards in the Shop!

Sweet card for saying I Love You, Happy Birthday or a Valentines Day card.

Doesn’t everyone need a dinosaur Valentine’s Day card?

The Hulasaurus is a fun card for tropical or luau party night, Hawaiian vacation, or maybe

for that friend that looks awesome in a hula skirt!

Hulasaurus’ extras include a fancy umbrella drink, of course!

Hula Dance Card Funny Dinosaur Greeting Card

And finally we have the Inspirasaur!

This dinosaur card is perfect for someone that needs a laugh along with a little inspiration or encouragement!

Dream big, fly like an eagle, you know what I mean!

This one is also a lot of fun for any other occasion you can think of.
