Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Let Your Dreams Blossom Square Card

The flowered frame on this is all one stamp. I colored it with Copic markers, and then added a sentiment.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, inks – Copic 100, B02, E23, E57, G03, G46, R29, RV14, V04, V17, Y35, YG25, YR68, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Guess What? Chicken Butt Note Card

One of the offspring still says this to me!

I had trouble photographing this – the first photo I had the card taped shut, so you can see the chicken through the window. Overall gloomy day on Monday, the lighting was just never optimal.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Heidi Swapp, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens Brown (060), Carmine Red (022), Orange (070), Yellow (050), dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


What the Cluck Square Card

For this card, I pulled my inspiration from the rooster character, HeiHei, from “Moana”. I think he is lovely and clumsy (and I can relate!).

Back in November, someone in my life took a clumsy, awful spill. Injury ensued. But this card would have been perfect!

I used a Gina K. Designs wreath builder template inside my MISTI to get the placement perfect.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, inks – Copic BG15, BG23, R14, YR14, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Around the Hen House Birthday Card

You will be seeing multiple chicken themed cards this week! I have wanted this Newton’s Nook stamp set since it was released, but I was unsure how many chicken cards I would actually make. So, I waited, to see how many ideas I would come up with. Thanks to Offspring3 for the gift!

I stamped the group of chickens twice (I envisioned a crowded hen house!). I lightly stenciled some clouds in the sky and a bit of dirt beneath the little chicken feet.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango, inks – Copic E11, E19, E23, E33, E51, E53, R29, YR04, YR09, Y35, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, stencil – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Daisies on Navy Birthday Card

TGIF!!! So glad Friday got here – it has been a long week. Not really sure WHY it has been a long week?? I did lose one day (spent it on the couch in the basement, so I could tend to the laundry machines without much movement!) to side effects from a Shingles vaccine. And I spent yesterday (which is my normal cleaning day) amazed at how much dust & grime had accumulated over the holidays (I didn’t have a regular cleaning day – I did a few freshen up things, vacuumed a few times). OH.MY.GOODNESS.

I used this bunch of daisies earlier this week, as traditional white daisies. But all along, I saw them on dark cardstock. With colored pencils.

Again, I am not sure if the sentiment strip. Maybe change it to pink with silver embossing?

Have a good weekend!

Plaid and Cheery Pig Card

I love this plaid paper with this pig, but I am not sure I will keep that sentiment. Cute enough in theory…maybe not in execution.
