Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


I Need Coffee Note Card

I found this sentiment already stamped in my scrap folder, and thought, “hmmm…will that fit within one of my coffee cup dies??” Yep. And the tan dotted paper is actually from a Christmas paper pad (I get that the white dots are SNOW…but the tan? For Christmas?), but to my eye, it looked like coffee with creamer.

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Smiling Pineapple Note Card

Who wouldn’t love a cute, smiling pineapple??

I was inspired by some smiling pineapples on the Paper Smooches blog.

Orchid and Pink Valentine’s Day Card

Last of the Valentines…I had to wait to be sure it was delivered.

The stamp is from Target’s $1 Aisle ($3 for 4 different “I love you” stamps) – thanks, Offspring3!

Only regret – I should have tried to form a heart with the white floss as I was gluing it down.

Another horrible mass shooting at a high school yesterday – just feeling hollow. Thoughts and prayers to the community involved.

Real Red, Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Simon Says Stamp, sequins – Crate Paper, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, floss – DMC.
