Welcome to Paper Inkspirations!

Hi! My name is Krissy, welcome to my blog. I have been an avid paper-crafter for many years, my addiction started with scrapbooking and has evolved to card-making. It all started when I realized that I had forgotten to buy a card for my nephew's birthday. Looking at my ever-expanding collection of scrapbook supplies, I thought I'd made a card for him. Since then, I've been hooked on card-making and my scrapbooks have been collecting dust. Someday I'll get back to them... I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful & supportive husband and I work at the Preschool at our church. When I'm not spending time with my family or making cards, I enjoy being active in our church. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.

Take time to get inky today....

Snow Globe Card

This was such a fun card to make. I made one for Sweet Alyssa's birthday (one of the 3 cards we gave her). This was my first attempt at a snow globe card and I have to say I was pretty happy with the way it turned out! I'll be making more of these. I think it will be great for any winter birthday. Once again, it uses my favorite Penny Black snowman (I've given that little guy a good workout in the last few weeks.)

recipe: paper: purple swirls unknown; grey The Paper Co.; stamps: Penny Black Warm & Cold, Comotion mini snowflake; Prismacolor Pencils; Goo-Gone; Tortillons; Ink: Tsukineko Graphite Black, Stazon White; Martha Stewart Snowflake punch; Ribbon: JoAnns; Fiskars border punch; Glitter: Stampendous Lavendar Ultra Fine; Crystal Stickles; Liquid Applique; acetate sheet; button unknown
Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with photos of the thank you notes I finished today - this cute little snowman makes another appearance on them. See you then!

Hi Krissy, I didn't see any other way to contact you, so I thought I'd just leave a comment on your blog. I wanted to say thanks for your sweet comment about going over to my blog every day and seeing that cute little puppy! (no, he's not mine.) We've been on vacation, and I have not gotten back into the swing of blogging again just yet, so I have not dropped off the face of the earth! I'll hopefully have something new and fun for tomorrow or Saturday! THanks for being a "fan"! Happy New Year!
