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!
