Good Morning Friends! I hope you all had a great week. Hard to believe it is Friday again and January will be over in a couple of days...
Today I am sharing a slimline card that uses some fun supplies from Pinkfresh Studio. I am using the Floral Notes Stamp and Stencil Set. I started by stamping the outline floral image. I then used the coordinating stencils (3 stencils) to add color to the flower and leaves. Lastly, I used the coordinating Floral Notes Die to die cut the image.
For my background I used the Diamond Plaid Stencil Set and soft blue ink. Once I had my background finished I ran it along with my card panel through my die cutting machine with the Pretty Pink Posh Slimline Dies.
At the last minute I decided to cut my floral images in half. I attached part of it to the top and bottom of my card panel with foam adhesive. I then stamped my sentiment, added a few paint splatters and sequins as a final touch.
Enjoy your day,

Hi Friends! I am stopping by today with a Valentine card for Pretty Pink Posh. I combined some "older" sets along with a new release die to create my card. I love how all of the products work so well together.

Good Morning and Happy Monday! I am stopping by today with a sweet card that uses some fun supplies from MFT Stamps. Let's get started...
I fell in love with the Heart Air Balloon Die when it was released. And I also loved how it coordinated with the adorable Missing You Every Single Day from the previous release. So fun and easy!
For my background I used the Cloud Stencil. I thought the pink clouds would work well for Valentines's Day. I then used the Stitched Cloud Edges Die to create my white clouds for the top and bottom of my card panel. I attached my elements with foams adhesive and added my sentiment (from the Missing You Every Single Day Set) to finish it off.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed my card and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.
Enjoy your day,

Good Morning Friend! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying your weekend. I am stopping by today with another card that uses some products from the latest release at Waffle Flower.
For my card I am using the Rose Bouquet Combo Set. This is a stamp, stencil and die combo set, which I love. I started by stamping first, I then lined up the stencil and added my ink to the stamped images. Lastly, I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. So quick and easy to use!
For my background I used the Heart Frame Die. The Rose Bouquet fits nicely on the die cut and it is the perfect background for the image.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you like my card and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.
Enjoy your day,

Hi Friends! I hope you all are doing well and your week is going great. I am stopping by today with a birthday card that uses some fun supplies from Waffle Flower.
I started my card by using the Inky Stripes Stencil. For my ink colors I used Papertrey Ink ink in Blueberry Sky and Simply Chartreuse and PinkFresh ink in Rocky Slope. I never have a "boy" card so I think these colors will be perfect to help build up my stash of cards again.
For my sentiment I used the new Happy Birthday Combo Set. This is the perfect sized sentiment for a quick stenciled card panel. Definitely a must have and one that you will reach for often. To finish my card I added a few wooden elements that I had in my stash.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you find a little time to be creative today too.
Enjoy your day,

Hi Friends! I hope you all are doing well and having a nice week. I am stopping by today with a card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. The challenge this time is called Lots of Love so I pulled out my Sweet Friends Set and played along.
I stamped my images with the Sweet Friends Stamp Set. I colored them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged the "sweet friends" on my card panel and used some of the little strawberries to fill in the background. Next, I stamped my sentiment onto a black strip and heat set it with white embossing powder.
That is all for today but I will be back tomorrow with a birthday card for Waffle Flower.
Enjoy your day,
New Release Countdown: Day 4
January 19, 2021
Good Morning Friends and Welcome Back to Day 4 (the final day) of the Ink To Paper New Release Countdown. I hope you have enjoyed all of my projects along with all of the projects that the other design team members have shared over the past few days. It is always so fun to see how each designer uses the products. Remember, you can always find all of the new product information on the Ink To Paper Blog too.
For my first card today I created a shaker card. I used the Antique Wishes stamp and die set and created my frame. I then added a piece of acetate to the frame to create my shaker.
Next, I stamped my darling hummingbird with the new Feathered Friends Mini 7 Stamp and Die Set. I am in love with this set. My grandmother loved hummingbirds and always had a feeder outside her window, so they definitely hold a special place in my heart.
For the foliage at the corners and the sentiment I once again used the Antique Wishes Set. This set included some "extra" accents that are perfect to finish off a card.
My final card for the release might just be my favorite... it didn't start out that way but I kept adding layers and small details until I created a card I was happy with. It definitely took me awhile but I think it was worth the extra time.
I started my card by creating my bird with the Feathered Friends 7 Die Set. I die cut all of the pieces from white cardstock and added ink to each layer. Next, I used the Charming Tags Die to create my tag. I stamped my sentiment from the Feathered Friends 7 Stamp Set on the bottom of the tag and attached my bird directly onto the tag. Then, I used the Sprigs & Sprays Set to stamp my floral images. I used the new Delicate Doilies Die Set to die cut my doily from a piece of vellum. To finish my card I layered everything onto a mat that had been die cut with the Love To Layer: Notched Die.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed all of my projects for the new release. I would love to know what your favorite is. Also feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Get your shopping lists ready because remember all of the New Release products will be available tomorrow night, January 20 at 10:00 PM EST in the Ink To Paper online shop. Happy Shopping!
Enjoy your day,
New Release Countdown Day 3
January 18, 2021
Good Morning Friends and Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I am back today with two more card for the Ink To Paper New Release Countdown. Remember you can find all of the new product information on the Ink To Paper Blog and all of the new products will be available on January 20th at 10:00 PM EST in the online shop.
I started my card by creating my background. I used the Just Sentiments: Milestones Stamp Set and stamped the 21 all over my card panel to create my background.
Next, I cut strips of coordinating cardstock and glued them onto my panel in rainbow order. I then used the Number Dies and die cut 21 from glittered cardstock.
I used the Just Sentiments: Milestones Stamp to add the st to my 21. Lastly, I used the Just Sentiments: Established Set to stamp Happy Birthday onto my banner. Such a fun and easy card to create.
Morgan is turning 21 in a few months and I know she will love this card... and how did my baby turn 21??
For my next card, I used the dies from the Big Balloons Set. I love the stamps and stencils that are included with this set but the dies are great on their own too!
I die cut the three balloons from Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky and Bright Buttercup cardstock and attached them to my card panel. Next, I used a piece a Pure Poppy patterned paper and attached it to the bottom of my panel. I then stamped my sentiment from the Just Sentiments: Established Set onto a piece of vellum. I wrapped the vellum around my panel and attached it to the back. Lastly, I mounted my panel onto a Bright Buttercup card mat before attaching everything to an A2 card base.
That is all for Day 3. Are you loving the new release? Do you have a favorite? I love the variety included this month. I will be back tomorrow with the final day of sneak peeks.
Enjoy your day,
New Release Countdown Day 2
January 17, 2021
Good Morning! I am back today with Day 2 of the New Release Countdown for Ink To Paper. Remember to refer to the Ink To Paper Blog for all of the new product details. Also, I wanted to remind you that the new release will be available on January 20th at 10:00 PM EST. Our release packages got held up in the mail (mine sat at the PO for over a week) so they decided to move the release up a few days to give us a few extra days to create our projects.
You are going to love today's products being showcased, they are some of my favorites! I have three cards to share today so let's get started...
For my first card I am using the new Vintage Flair Stamp and Die Set. This set includes a beautiful terrarium or lantern and lots of vintage feeling elements that you can add. I started my card my stamping my images in soft pastel colors. (Soft Stone, Pale Peony and Spring Moss).
For my lantern, I die cut it from white cardstock three times and stacked them together to give it some dimension. I then ink blended the inside panel with a soft blue ink and inlaid them back into the die. All the stamped elements pull it all together to create a soft vintage feel.
For my card panel I ink blended a little Soft Stone ink onto the background. I then stamped my butterflies onto the background for a little added interest. Next, I added a Sweet Blush strip of cardstock to the bottom of the panel and stamped my sentiment. Lastly, I attached my lantern and a few sequins to finish off my card.
Next, I am using the Big Balloon Set. This set includes stamps, dies and stencils (to add detail to the balloons). I started by creating my balloons. I ink blended onto the die cut balloons and then used the coordinating stencil to add color and detail. (Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores and Bright Buttercup)
For my background I used some of the confetti and streamers included in the set to stamp a random pattern. I then used the Big Balloon Sentiments Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment. Lastly, I attached my balloons and strings to my card panel with foam adhesive.
For my next card, I used the Cover Plate: Big Balloons.
I started by running the Cover Plate: Big Balloons Die through my die cutting machine two times. On one of of the die cuts I kept the negative pieces intake. I added tape to the back to make sure none of the pieces would fall out. I then colored the balloons and strings with Copic markers (any type of markers would work for this). I then attached the two die cuts together- great way to get nice clean edges without worrying about staying in the lines on inlaying all of the small pieces back into the negative.
Next, I used the Big Balloon Sentiments Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment onto a piece of vellum. I wrapped the vellum strip around my die cut and attached it to an A2 card base that had been ink blended with Hawaiian Shores ink. Lastly, I added a few sequins and white gel pen highlights to finish off my card.
Are you still with me? That was a lot! Please feel free to ask any questions or leave a comment and I will get back to you. I will be back tomorrow with Day 3.
Enjoy your day,
