Paper and Ink Imaginings

Yet ANOTHER Square Card!

Hello, hello!

I have the new computer up & running, and all of my files restored.  WHEW!

This card is for my mother-in-law.

I stamped the wreath on Bristol, and used my Real Brush pens.

Gable Green (way, way retired!), Strathmore Bristol, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens Brown (060), Carmine Red (022), Green (040), Light Green ((041), Light Violet (081), Orange (070), Pink (025), Yellow (050), die – Spellbinders, sequins – Darice, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Happy Halloween Note Cards

Encouragement Speech Bubble Card

I think the sentiments in Julie Ebersole’s Voices in My Head stamp set are sassy and fun!

The sequins were a last minute addition – I realized the white background (the lady is stamped/embossed/colored directly on that white layer) was too stark. The card was already assembled, so I didn’t want to attempt blending  or additional coloring. Sequins to the rescue.

Foiled Vitamin Sea Card

I bought some Deco Foil Rainbow Shattered Glass foil recently, and used my laminator to make this card. This foil is GORGEOUS.

And guess what?

I WAS SUCCESSFUL ON THE FIRST TRY! Have I ever said that about foiling before??

Supplies:  Stamp – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – Ranger Emboss It, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing folder – Darice, foil – iCraft Deco Foil Rainbow Shattered Glass, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail clear.
