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....

Flower Cross

I've had this stamp set since last Easter, and somehow it never saw ink....until now!  I sat down with the intention of making birthday cards for my brother and my brother-in-law, but ended up making an Easter card for our Pastor instead.  I love this Flower Cross by Stampendous!  I decided to keep the background simple and muted so that the cross would really be featured.  After all, that's what Easter is all about. 

I had fun playing with my Stampendous pastel glitters.  I used Sea Green, Pink, Lavender and Crystal Ultra Fine Glitters.  So much fun!  Just to be sure I had good coverage, I first colored the flowers with my PrismaColor Pencils and then added the glitter on top.  I stamped one of the flowers included with this set all over the background with Tsukineko Sunflower Yellow ink.  I had so much fun making this card, I think I may make a few more to send out this Easter. 

I hope you have fun plans for your day today - first on my agenda is to make those birthday cards that I didn't get to yesterday. 

Take time to get inky today!
