Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Sending You Sunshine Tag Note Card

I was inspired by some crafting blogs working with sunflower stamps this week. I dug through my stash and found this small stamp from Waffle Flower.

Supplies:  Stamp – Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa (retired), Pool Party, inks – Copic BG0000, BG01, E23, Y17, YG25, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing folder – Provo Craft, hole punch – Fiskars, embossing powder – Stampendous, twine – Martha Stewart.


She Believed Note Card

I found this image in one of my scrap folders, and added some Copic coloring around it for this note card.

To be honest, I am not even sure if I still own this stamp! I bought it for one specific project 4 or 5 years ago, and struggled to get it stamp consistently solid. I did a quick search in my stamp storage this morning, didn’t find it.

Supplies:  Stamp – Inkadinkado, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, inks – Copic BG0000, BG01, VersaFine Deep Lagoon, die – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


“AACK” Note Card

I am so glad that Julie Ebersole included this sentiment in her Voices in My Head stamp set. “AACK” is something I actually say.  (Blame the comic strip “Bloom County” from the 1980’s!)

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, ScrapBerry Mediterranean Dreams, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, inks – Copic E21, E29, E57, VersaFine Smoky Gray, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Blue Floral Thinking of You Note Card

This is an old wood block stamp that I found in my stash while digging for something else.

I dragged the Salty Ocean Distress Ink pad down the stamp from top to bottom to create the striped texture.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Salty Ocean, VersaMark, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.


Many Thanks Butterfly Note Card

I was in the mood for a butterfly.

I am STILL in the mood for a butterfly – I need to venture into one of my craft storage boxes and find an old stamp set. Hopefully, I will find and and make something with it over the weekend.

Treat Yourself Note Card

How’s everyone doing?

I’ve been a little under the weather, with a smattering of “other things to do” going on.

Today’s note card was really quick and easy. Wouldn’t it be cute to hold a gift card from the local ice cream shop as an end of year gift for a student or favorite teacher?

I made the ice cream chocolate – because that is my favorite.  😉

Supplies:  Stamps – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), inks – Copic B02, C5, E23, VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
