Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Have A Beautiful Day Tile Card

This beautiful tile paper is from the Kaiser Craft Havana Nights pad. It is embossed – I could not get a good photo to show the shiny embossed detail.

I am working on a specific set of encouragement cards for someone. (waving at YOU, Pati K!)

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – KaiserCraft Havana Nights, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, ink – VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Navy (retired), organdy ribbon – Offray.



Oh Happy Life with Coffee Card

I am not a coffee person, but I know a lot of people who are coffee aficionados. (Confession: I am a Diet Coke person…)

The individual coffee beans were stamped and embossed, then fussy cut.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts (coffee cup), My Favorite Things ( In and Out Stitched Rectangle), embossing powder – Ranger clear.

Pink and Green Encouragement Card

My friend is almost done her chemotherapy – another PINK encouragement card.

What the Flock Flamingo Card

I was gifted some new stamps & dies for my birthday (Offspring3 looks out for me – she feeds my crafting habit!), and these flamingos were in the group.

This sentiment made me giggle. I do remember hearing, “let’s get the flock out of here” around the house, maybe in my teens. My Dad is a fan of a play on words.

Christmas Card for Jacob

I read about a card drive on Facebook (and one of the stamp company blogs, maybe…I went looking, I can’t find the post). Jacob Thompson is 9, has a late stage cancer, is not expected to make it to Christmas. He wants Christmas cards, and he likes penguins.

Christmas penguins I have.

Peace to Jacob and his family.
