Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Long Neck Dinosaur Baby Card

This dinosaur family may be brachiosaurus, but I think of Littlefoot in the animated movie “The Land Before Time” – he was a Long Neck.

One of my cousins just welcomed a new grandbaby, and she requested another dinosaur baby card.  (The original dinosaur baby card is HERE .) I couldn’t make the cards the same…it took me a fair amount of time to have my epiphany.

I blended the sky with a cloud stencil, then built the scene on top of that with my die cut pieces. I struggled with where to place the “new baby” sentiment and finally decided to put it on Soft Sky paper so it blended with the sky.

Sweet Little One Elephant Onesie Note Card

My card basket is lopsided on the blue to pink ratio! Add one to the blue side.

I stamped the elephant in gray and embossed. I wanted it to have more loft, so I overstamped in VersaMark (clear) and embossed again. Perfect!  Good thing I left the elephant stamp on the MISTI, so lining up the second stamping was a no brainer.

Baby Girl Onesie Note Card

Can you see I got a new baby related die (the onesie)? There is a stamp set that coordinates with it, but I thought it would be cute to have a customized baby girl onesie today.

I am working HARD on getting my inventory packaged, priced, counted, entered into multiple Excel files (gallery required one, my own) for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery delivery on Monday.

Have a good weekend!
