Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Pale Pink Floral Square Birthday Card

This is for a good friend with a birthday in early October. Happy that I thought ahead. I usually scramble on September 29th to complete it and get it in the mail because “HOW DID IT GET TO BE THE END OF SEPTEMBER??!!”

My goal was really pale pinks and greens. I intentionally did not add color to the center of any of the flowers.

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pink Pirouette, inks – Copic G00, G0000, R11, R20, R21, R81, RV11, YG03, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Love You A Latte Pieced Card

I had this Avery Elle set on my work table (I used a Happy Birthday sentiment stamp), and this card just had to play through.

The cups are paper pieced with Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper.

The background is dry embossed with the cup die (hard to see – I should have used an extra shim!).
