Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Polar Bears Nose BOOP Card

I am in the middle of designing Christmas cards for my parents to mail. They chose this polar bear image, I came up with the rest.

While I am giving them this card to mail, I am not willing to make 24 more of these! It did turn out exactly as I hoped, but the steps to get me there were just too many.

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.

Have a good weekend!

Silver and Black Graduation Card

I am still working on card inventory for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery .

Fall is not the typical time you see graduation cards in stores, is it?

BUT…2/3 of my offspring graduated in the month of December (1/3 in May).

And, gosh, there are so many ongoing certificate programs, technical programs, medical treatment programs, et cetera, you many need a graduation card any month of the year!

Chicken Soup Under the Weather Card

The chicken in the bowl (NOT The Muppets Swedish Chef and Chicken in the Basket!) and the sentiment were in my scrap folder.

Supplies: Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Basic Gray, inks – Copic B21, C3, E51, Y17, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (tag rectangle), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Birthday Hoodie Card

This is a 4.25 inch square card.

I found the sweatshirt in my scrap folder (already embossed), and added the sentiment. HELP! The VersaFine ink and Ranger super fine embossing powder (used on the new sentiment) were not Copic safe on this specific day!! Did I overheat (and burn off) my embossing powder by accident?? (It really doesn’t look like that happened!) The blue ink ran a bit with the Copic coloring. The effect helps it look like a sweatshirt that was laundered one too many times, so I stayed with it.

Supplies: Stamps – Gina K Designs, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Copic C1, C3, C5, VersaFine Deep Lagoon, Onyx Black, die – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Super Fine Detail clear.
