Paperie Ink – Just Wanted to Bug You

Welcome, welcome everyone! Just popping in to bug you on this fine Sunday morning. Haha! These sweet Paperie Ink ladybugs were just too cute to resist and the sentiments in the set are equally as adorable! Today I’m sharing a fun, just because card and it cracks me up every time I read the sentiment.

I stamped and heat embossed images from Bug For a Hug stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I watercolored them all with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out.

Next, I took a light blue panel and used white pigment ink with a blending brush and the Newton’s Nook clouds stencil. Then I used a Newton’s Nook land borders die to cut some grass from a green panel and inked up the edges with a blending brush for some dimension. Next, I used liquid glue to adhere the grass to the sky and the leaves to the top of the panel too. I did put acrylic blocks on the leaves until the glue was dry to make sure they stayed flat.

To keep things looking the same, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment before adding the ladybug images. Then I popped those cuties up with foam squares. For finishing touches, I added some red hearts from Twiddler’s Nook Sweethearts embellishment mix and some Fresh as a Daisy embellishments in the grass too.

Last, I popped the panel up with foam tape a melon card base and this card is all finished. Cute as can be!

Paperie Ink – You Are So Meowgical

Hey friends! I’m back today with an adorable unikitty slimline card to share featuring stamps from Paperie Ink and some other goodies from Newton’s Nook and Trinity Stamps. I just love these kitties so much! They are adorable and so fun to color!

I started my card by stamping and heat embossing the kitties on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and switched over to my background.

Next, I used the Newton’s Nook Cloudy Sky stencil on a white panel with Lawn Fawn inks in rainbow colors. This is a 6×6 stencil so I did half of the panel, shifted the stencil down and continued my clouds. Then, I used my images as a guide to decide where I wanted my sentiment. I stamped it in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.

I die cut a couple of cloud strips with the Newton’s Nook Sky Borders die and adhered them to the stenciled panel with liquid adhesive. Then I used the largest Trinity Stamps Slimline Stitched Panel die to cut it out. This die leaves about a 1/8″ border so I trimmed down purple cardstock and adhered it to a white slimline card base before adhering the main card panel with foam tape.

I added foam squares to the back of my kitties and popped them in place. To fill in some of the space I thought these Trinity Stamps Boiled Sugar Jelly Drop Hearts were the perfect touch!

Isn’t this just the sweetest card?!? I could seriously color these sweet kitties all day long. I love the different poses and how chubby cute they are!

Paperie Ink – Bearing Hugs

Hello friends! I hope your week is starting off splendid and that you’re not melting like we are in the PNW. Today I am stopping by to share the card that I made my dad for Father’s Day. That weekend was cram packed with end of school, dance auditions and dance recital so we didn’t get to see my dad to celebrate. Well, I finally saw him yesterday to give him his card and gift so I can finally share the fun card that I made for him.

I started off by heat embossing those sweet bears from Paperie Ink’s Bear Hugs and watercoloring them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and then switched gears to the background.

For that I ink smooshed Lawn Fawn kiddie pool and blue jay inks on a white panel. Once the panel was dry, I ran it through my laminator to really flatten it out and die cut 3 Pretty Pink Posh diamond tags from it.

Then I took a piece of woodgrain cardstock from my stash and trimmed it to slimline size. I used Lawn Fawn walnut ink and a blending brush around the edges for a little depth. Then I smooshed the ink pad on my glass mat, spritzed it with water and flicked it all over the panel.

I used liquid adhesive to adhere the panel to a white slimline card base and then added foam tape and squares to the back of the tags and images. I equally spaced out the tags and adhered them down. Then I added the bear images on top of those. I stamped a sentiment from Bear Hugs and used the Trinity Stamps 4-Bar Card die set to cut it into a banner. I used a foam strip to adhere it underneath the middle bears.

For finishing touches on my card, I added a scattering of Trinity Stamps Boiled Sugar Jelly Drop Hearts across the design. Then I took the Newton’s Nook Mom and Dad stamp set and stamped Happy Father’s Day on the inside where I would write my message.

I am so happy with how this card turned out and was excited to give it to my dad. He really seemed to enjoy it too!

Products used on today’s project:
Paperie Ink Bear Hugs
Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Diamond Tag dies
Trinity Stamps 4-Bar Card dies
Trinity Stamps Boiled Sugar Jelly Drop Hearts
Trinity Stamps Blending Buddy brush
Lawn Fawn inks – walnut, blue jay, kiddie pool

Therm O Web – Hello Spring

Hello everyone! I’m really excited to announce that I’ve joined the Therm O Web team! Today I have a sweet card for you featuring the bunny print from the newly released Basket of Fun toner sheets pack.

Here is a list of all the products I used on today’s card:
Basket of Fun Toner Sheets
Ocean Blue Deco Foil 
Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide
Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide
Scattered Straw Distress Oxide
Paperie Ink Hello Hummingbirds stamps
Therm O Web tape runner XL
iCraft 3D foam squares
Glossy Accents
Sakura white gel pen
Sakura black glaze pen
Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen 

To start things off I decided that I wanted to use the bunny toner sheet from Basket of Fun and Ocean Blue deco foil. I pulled out my supplies, trimmed my deco foil and placed the foil and toner sheet in my parchment paper transfer sheet. Then I turned on my laminator and while it was heating up, I stamped my images and colored them with my copic markers. I’m not a fussy cutter so I used my scan-n-cut to cut the images out and set them all aside. Once my laminator was good and hot, I ran the sandwich through and revealed the beautifully foiled blue bunnies! Super cute!

I didn’t want a white background with my bunnies though so this is when I chose distress oxide colors to blend over the panel. I went with cracked pistachio, squeezed lemonade and scattered straw. After blending, I used a cloth to wipe off excess ink from the foiled areas and spritzed my panel with water. Then I decided for a little added interest to flick some watered down black acrylic paint on the panel too.

Now for the fun part! I used my tape runner to adhere the foiled panel to a white card base. Then I added foam squares to the back of all my images and put them in place where I wanted.

I really enjoy adding some little bits of finishing touches to my cards so I started these with white gel pen accents on all the images and then went in with a black glaze pen for the eyes. I love the added shine and interest this gives the critters.

Then the last two things I did was add glossy accents to the bunny’s nose and hummingbird’s beaks and feet. For a teeny bit of shimmer I added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the hummingbird wings too.

I hope you found some fun inspiration to create something wonderful. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Paperie Ink – Hello Sunshine Poolside

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week! Today I have a bright and happy card to share with you featuring a couple of newer release items from Paperie Ink and Spellbinders.

I fell in love with the entire last release Paperie Ink had and splurged on Mother’s Day to pre-order myself 2 of the new sets. This one – Hello Sunshine – had me immediately wanting a pool to put them in. Well, at almost the same time, Spellbinders had a new release and I picked up Pool with a View on my next ScrapbookPal order.

To create this card, I started with the background, inking picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon distress inks on a panel and spritzing it with water. Then I die cut the inner part of the pool and inked it with mermaid lagoon and spritzed it too. I die cut the outer part of the pool from gray cardstock and lightly inked the edge with black soot for a little dimension and moved on to my images.

I chose a couple of critters and flowers from Hello Sunshine and paired them with leaves from Toucan Party. I colored these with my copics and used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out. Then I started working on placement.

Once I had an idea, I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment and started adhering images with liquid glue. I find this works best with panels that have been inked with distress or distress oxides.

Finally, I moved on to finishing touches which were pretty simple. I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, glossy accents to the noses and flower centers and Unicorn Stickles to other flower centers. I also used black glaze pen on the bunny’s eyes to help them shine a little.

This card has me dreaming for summer and a week by a pool with no adulting necessary! Maybe someday. Haha!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Paperie Ink – Hello, I Miss You So Much

Welcome back everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Today I’m sharing a card by a new-to-me stamp company just starting out on Etsy called Paperie Ink. Her images are to-die-for adorable and I was very fortunate to win an Instagram contest that gifted me three sets recently.

I finally took time to play with one – Hello Hummingbirds – and had so much fun creating this little scene.

For this card, I used my stamps to get an idea of the layout to make sure everything would fit. Once I decided, I stamped them out and colored them with copics. I used my scan-n-cut to cut them out and moved on to the large image and final layout.

I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with the smaller scalloped panel in the Newton’s Nook Framework die set and stamped the hello image with copic-friendly ink. I colored it up and stamped the rest of the sentiment in gray below it. Using my images for a guide, I stamped the water sprinkling out of the watering can in the same gray.

Moving on to final assembly, I trimmed down some text patterned paper and adhered it to a card base. Then I popped the scalloped panel up with foam tape and added my images to that with foam squares. Some parts that are hanging off have double layered foam squares to keep them laying nice and flat.

For finishing touches on this sweet card, I added glossy accents to the bird beaks and feet, the bunny’s nose and water in the watering can. I also added white gel pen accents throughout the images and black glaze pen to the eyes.

I hope you enjoyed this sweet card today.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
