Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Holiday Tags 2018

I stumbled upon a Scrapbook.com stamp set of holiday tag greetings over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. With the discount available, I had to do it!

Supplies: Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, inks – Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green, VersaFine Onyx Black, Satin Red, VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things (rectangular tag), Taylored Expressions (curved top tag), hole punch – Fiskars, embossing powders – Ranger Silver Pearl, Stampendous Detail clear, gold, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine – Offray.


A Friend Like You Card

This is another great sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

I am not sure how I embossed the background (it was in my scrap folder) – I think I stamped in Deep Lagoon and then embossed with Silver Pearl powder.

Supplies: Stamps – Gina K. Designs, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – VersaFine Deep Lagoon, Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powders – Ranger Silver Pearl, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


There Is No One Like You Note Card

This stamp set was on my craft table (I had used one of the sentiments on another card), and the little fairy spoke to me – “Stamp me, please!”

Her wings are covered with Wink of Stella clear – I just couldn’t get the sparkle to show in the photo.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, inks – Copic E23, E51, E53, E57, R14, R21, Y28, VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – Essentials by Ellen, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Baby Girl Onesie Note Card

Can you see I got a new baby related die (the onesie)? There is a stamp set that coordinates with it, but I thought it would be cute to have a customized baby girl onesie today.

I am working HARD on getting my inventory packaged, priced, counted, entered into multiple Excel files (gallery required one, my own) for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery delivery on Monday.

Have a good weekend!

Supplies:  Stamps – Impression Obsession, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, inks – Copic E21, R81, Y18, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Sweet Pea Designs (onesie), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Pink Survivor Card

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make a card to send to one of the survivors I know.

I made a collage on my MISTI, and stamped it 3 times to get the perfect ink coverage. (And that is why my Pixie Pink ink looks more like Pink Passion ink!)

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pink Passion (retired), inks – Stampin’ Up! Pixie Pink (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Magenta and Pool G-LLama-rous Card

LLamas on a magenta background??  YES, PLEASE!

Offspring3 went birthday shopping for me (with some additional funding from Offspring1), and she found this Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) pad that has llamas AND magenta foil. Who knew this existed???

I will probably hoard the pages with magenta foil while I come up with the PERFECT projects.  😉

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – DCWV No Prob Llama, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Foiled Sea Shells Encouragement Card

My laminator was still out from yesterday’s foiled card.

Dare I try another?

I had recently bought a container of Deco Foil Transfer Gel. It is used with stencils. When it is dry, you put it through the laminator with foil.

So, I flipped through my stencils and picked the shells. And I had this opal foil that I loved, but was not horribly successful with.

OH. MY.

The photo above looks a little “Meh”, doesn’t it? You can see it is shiny, the colors seem to fade on the kraft paper.

BUT…catch it at an angle!

Supplies:  Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Newton’s Nook, Deco Foil Transfer Gel – Therm O Web iCraft, opal foil – Therm O Web iCraft, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
