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....

To a Great Pair

I had so much fun making this card!  These cute little pears are from a Stampendous set called Little Fruit.  The set includes a bunch of different little fruits and cute little sentiments to go along.  I have a few more ideas using this set, so I'm sure I'll be getting it inky again soon.  I made this card for our Pastor and his wife for their wedding anniversary.  It was so much fun to make, that I'm tempted to make a few more to add to my stash.  I never seem to have the right card when I need it. 

After I colored the pears, I added a coat of Diamond Glaze to them to give them a sheen. 

Better get going now, time to get inky and build up my stash of cards.  I hope you'll take time to get inky today, too!

recipe:  Stampendous Little Fruit; Bazzill Celtic Green Dots; The Paper Co Pink & White Cardstock; Tsukineko Tuxedo Black ink; Prismacolor Pencils, Goo-Gone, Tortillons; JoAnn's Ribbon; Diamond Glaze
