Paper and Ink Imaginings

Happy Yellow Card Duo

Yes, you are required to say “happy yellow” in your best Bob Ross voice!

These went to my mother in law this week. I think she gave some of the last cards to one of her caregivers and now needs replacements? Unclear.

“Stay at Home” is going OK. I am only leaving the house to walk, get groceries, or check on my parents. Offspring3 and I completed a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in about 8 hours on Monday.

How are things in your private space?

Birds and Florals Get Well Card

Last weekend, hubby went to visit his parents. He ran some errands for his mother, and she had requested that he purchase some greeting cards for her to have at the house. Hubby does not like shopping for cards, so he came back from the store without them. “Oh, Kathy can make them for you.” Which is fine and dandy, but I make cards that are blank inside. Now I have to come up with inside sentiments for the cards she requested (card sentiments are so personal to me – I dislike trying to pick for cards that other people will send). Not an insurmountable task, but one I dread. It will all work out…but I will procrastinate!

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Crate Paper Good Vibes, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Gold Detail.


What the Cluck Square Card

For this card, I pulled my inspiration from the rooster character, HeiHei, from “Moana”. I think he is lovely and clumsy (and I can relate!).

Back in November, someone in my life took a clumsy, awful spill. Injury ensued. But this card would have been perfect!

I used a Gina K. Designs wreath builder template inside my MISTI to get the placement perfect.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, inks – Copic BG15, BG23, R14, YR14, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Quick Feel Better Note Card

Hey, I’m still here.

Trying to get the MOJO restarted. Ugh, it went to sleep!

Thanksgiving week was really busy, plus my clothes dryer died the week before, and I didn’t get a new machine until last Monday. (I am incomplete without laundry detergent and working laundry machines!) And I slept badly all week.

Cyber Monday was hectic (my husband kept asking me to order items in his shopping carts for him – LOL! I’m serious!), and Tuesday I got bogged down in my in-law paperwork for a bit.

I need to get moving on my own Christmas cards – hopefully I will have something to post in that direction for tomorrow.

If I don’t get sidetracked by the impeachment proceedings. Wherever you stand on the subject, it is HISTORIC.

Supplies:  Stamp – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Stampin’ Up!.

 


Yellow and Purple Floral Feel Better Soon Duo

I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Spring Garden stamp set (from 2003 – the second Stamp Camp I ever attended) to make a few get well cards.

I chose the colors, well, because my mother-in-law likes yellow and purple (the horizontal card is for her).

Supplies:  Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi (retired), inks – Gina K Designs Jelly Bean Green, Wild Lilac, Lawn Fawn Sunflower, Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), butterfly punch – Martha Stewart, Ranger Stickles – Icicle, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

Feel Better Soon BandAid Card

I struggled with this the entire way. The rubber stamp was dry rotting (lack of use?  defective batch?). It was a Sale-a-Bration set from 2013, and I never got any of the images to stamp very well. When I finished this card, the set went into the trash can.

Supplies:  Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
