Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink

Adventure Bikes Card

I had one of my bike stamps out, working on a card for personal use…and this one had to play through first. I used a Gina K. Designs wreath builder template to stamp the bike in the corners.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hampton Arts, PinkFresh Studio, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Black Licorice, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaFine Clair Nocturne, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.



Blue City Skyline Adventure Card

Offspring1 took a job opportunity on the other coast, and he and his girlfriend just moved recently.

Very proud of him, very happy for them, very excited for their new adventure.

The sentiment is not as wonky in person (I did redo the sentiment after the photo – it was better, still not perfect – tiny sentiment stamps are difficult!).

I also made a pastel version of this – just because my Copics were speaking to me after the first image was colored. Sentiment TBD because I couldn’t commit to blocking any of the pastel buildings!

Supplies:  Stamps – PinkFresh Studio, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), Curious Metallics Blueprint, inks – Copic (dark version) B24, B39, C1, C3, C5, C7, Y18, (pastel version) B00, BG01, BV00, G00, R20, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Washi Encouragement Note Card

I stumbled upon a small pack of Pinkfresh Studio Felicity washi stickers (these were free with an order last year? Maybe Simon Says Stamp?) in my paper storage on Monday – a quick and easy encouragement note card was born.

And, if you have clicked to enlarge the photo and noticed the tiny strand of pink lint behind the washi tape (next to the sentiment), you will be happy to know that I spent 10 delicate minutes peeling back the tape and removing the strand. Alas, I was not motivated to take a new photo.  🙂

Supplies:  Paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, washi stickers – Pinkfresh Studio Felicity, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh.


Breath of Kindness Note Card

Offspring3 received a free package of PinkFresh Studio Felicity Washi Stickers with a recent Simon Says Stamp order (which, was all for me…she is a generous one!).

I saw this sentiment, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, inks – Stampin’ Up! Certainly Celery (retired), Orchid Opulence (retired), PinkFresh Studio washi sticker.
