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....

Haunty Halloween Hop

Are you ready for the Haunty Halloween Hop?????  If you've arrived here from Jingle's blog, you're in the right place.  You're in for a lot of "spooky goodness" as you hop along with us.  There are a bunch of us playing along, be sure to leave a comment at every blog, because you just never know from which blog posts the winners will be chosen.  Winners???  Absolutely!  We have a bunch of great sponsors and they have offered some really great prizes!  After the winners are chosen, you will have one week to claim your prize.  You have until Wednesday, October 26th at 8pm EST to post your comments.


I had a lot of fun making this card.  It's the first time I've made one of these treat holders.  I found a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  I'll be making more of these in the future!  What a fun way to give a few Hershey's Nuggets as a little gift.  I've also seen these with tea light candles in the treat box, I think I might make those for Thanksgiving.  Stay tuned!

recipe:  Stampendous Costume Kids Perfectly Clear Stamp Set; Tsukineko Sparkle Shimmer Sprits; Tsukineko Tuxedo Black Ink; Prismacolor Pencils, Goo Gone, Tortillons; Bazzill Classic Purple Card stock; Bella Blvd. Too Cute to Spook Quadrants; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord; Sakura Clear Star pen; miscellaneous ribbon; Best Occasions Rhinestones


I love this little Dracula from the Stampendous Costume Kids set.  I know Drac usually has black hair, but I thought I'd make him look like my little blondie.  The tag that I slipped in the pocket simply reads "Happy Halloween".  To jazz it up, I sponged the edges with Concord Distress Ink and then spritzed it with sparkle spray.


OK!  Enough of my talking, it's time for you to get hopping.  Your next stop is the amazing Alison!  Have fun and Happy Halloween!


Just incase you get lost along the way, here's a list of all of the hoppers.
