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....

Bicycle Greetings

This card was one of a set of notecards I made for my little guy to give his Preschool Director on the last day of school.  These are so quick and easy to put together.  I'll be making more of these - they're great cards to have on hand.  You know, I keep saying I'm going to build up my stash, but I still haven't done it...add it to the 'to-do list'!

I stamped this Hero Arts bicycle image on kraft card stock with black ink.  I wanted the flowers to stand out a bit, but still be subtle.  So I added dots of white ink to the blooms and a bit of green pencil to the leaves.  That's it!  Doesn't get much easier than that!  A strip of DCWV paper at the bottom, a couple of scored lines, a sentiment and VOILA! 

I made a set of 8 cards for Mrs. Kranz, each with a separate sentiment.  These could easily be adapted for any occasion. 

Just wanted to let you know that I'm participating in a Summer/4th of July Blog Hop on Saturday, July 2.....I hope you'll hop along with us.  There will be many stops along the way, full of beautiful inspiration.  Plus.....if you leave comments at each stop, you'll be eligible for one of 10 prizes.  You don't want to miss it!

Take time to get inky today!  Hope to see you back here on Saturday!
