Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Thanks a Latte Note Card

This really cute Avery Elle coffee themed set was one of the Christmas gifts – it is adorable. I did paper piecing with this (stamped the cup on the Oh Happy Life paper, and fussy cut out the cup body I wanted to use), and after I had glued it into place, I realized the matching die set comes with a die to cut that exact piece. (THANK YOU, Avery Elle!)

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Ranger clear.

Happy Dog Film Card

This was practice for another project. All the happy dogs are so cute, aren’t they?

I stamped and embossed the film strip, then masked, stamped and embossed each individual dog using my MISTI for perfect stamp positioning. (And crossed my fingers that I didn’t screw up each time!) Once the stamping was done, I colored with Copic markers.

Supplies: Stamps – JudiKins, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, inks – Copic B0000, B00, C1, E15, E23, E41, E51, W7, 110, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Appreciation Card – Papertrey Ink October 2017 Blog Hop Challenge

Here is my card for the Papertrey Ink October 2017 Blog Hop Challenge!

I dusted off an older PTI set, Through the Trees, and added color with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens. The trees and the sentiment were stamped in Deep Lagoon, and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Here is the inspiration:

I was attracted to the colors and the rustic nature of the art.

Donut Thank You Note Card

A quick note card addressed to Offspring3, for her amazing job of coordinating the other members of the family for my birthday this week. AND…she baked me a cake!

Had to use one of her gifts for the note. 😉
