As a scientist who also enjoys paper crafting, I’ve always got my eye out for science-related crafty items. It used to be they were few and far between, but thanks to many stamp companies, including Lawn Fawn and Papertrey Ink, that has changed! Now that being a science geek has become much more trendy, thanks to shows like Big Bang Theory, crafters can join in on the science fun!

This set from Lawn Fawn and the matching dies have so much possibility!

I love Lizzy’s use of the little birds and the tipped flask.

This card and these tags make use of a number of the different facets of the set.  The overlapping flasks “in love” makes for a cute effect!

The Great Chemistry set from Paper Smooches has a fantastic little mad scientist, whose hand can hold a number of the science tools in the set.  I’ve also been told that a coordinating die set is in the works for these stamps, which will make them even more fun!

This card is in the running for one of my favorites.  I love the use of marker to make the explosion effect on the scientist.

This card sets apart each science element on its own circle, which is a great idea.

It’s important to remember to think outside the box with any stamp set.  These flasks are a great demonstration of the versatility of these science sets.

I was thrilled when Papertrey Ink released their Love Potion Stamp Set and matching dies just before my wedding, which allowed us to use trendy tubes filled with my husband’s favorite peanut butter m&m’s and cute flask tags as table favors.

My Partner-in-Crafting-Crime, Katie, produced this card for my birthday.  The use of the honeycomb embossing folder is a great reminder that things you already have on hand just might coordinate with a science theme.

The above card used the Stampin’ Up Honeycomb embossing folder.

I recently purchased this set of embossing folders from Sizzix, because the Connect the Dots pattern on the left looks just like molecules.

Wouldn’t this ribbon from May Arts be perfect for a brightly colored chemistry card?

Chemistry-themed paper crafts don’t have to be limited to cards and tags.  Silhouette sells a number of chemistry shapes that would be great for a science-themed birthday party, like many that can be found on Pinterest and elsewhere online.  I wish I had had such a cool birthday party when I was nine!

  1. This is such a great posting!!! I am so happy to see stamp sets appropriate for my brainy son! I followed every link and I’ll be adding to my stamp inventory. MANY THANKS!!!!!

  2. Why does everyone think that you have to be either a Scientist and/or Nerdy to enjoy there Stamp Sets? I am neither by training, nor predilection, but they still gave me a great giggle and I own both the Lawn Fawn and the Paper Smooches Set. I like to think, and craft, outside of the stereotypes! I especially Love the use of the Flasks for Flower Vases. I am also just Loving the Satin Bubble/Dot Ribbon by Maya Arts. This would be perfect on a card with Fish, Whales, Turtles, and used as Air Bubbles.

  3. Totally fun mix of chemistry themed designs, Laurie! I had no idea there were so many chemistry/science themed stamps and goodies out there! You’ve shown us a really great selection of cards that are fun and cute and clean and simple!
