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....

Scrappy Bowl Sunday

Hi!  Happy Scrappy Bowl Sunday!  Or, as some people call it "Super Bowl Sunday".  It's a big day in our house, but I thought I'd take a quick break and share a card I made today.  I used the new Stampendous Taupe Color Fragments.  They are so much fun to work with!  If you haven't tried them, you are in for a real treat!  Ready to see my card?


recipe: Stampendous Taupe Color Fragments, Cling Bird Post, Clear Bark Embossing Powder, Pirate Gold Embossing Powder; Recollections Spice Market Card Stock; VersaMark Ink; Darice Hemp Cord; Tea Dye Distress Ink


Stampendous Color Fragments are just that. Bits of pure color you can glue on to any surface with any adhesvie. Sprinkle into melting embossing powders for an amazing Encrusted Jewel look. Crush for smaller particles.  For my card today, I stamped my image with VersaMark ink, sprinkled on Clear Bark EP and then added Taupe Color Fragments on top of the embossing powder.  To keep the Color Fragments from blowing around during heat setting, hold your heat gun on the underside of your cardstock and heat to melt the embossing powder.  As the EP melts, it will hold on to your color fragments.  They are so much fun to work with! (but hard to photograph sometimes *sigh*)
How would you like to give them a try?  I've got a jar of Taupe Color Fragments waiting for one of you!  All you need to do is become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment.  After the Super Bowl, I'll draw a winning comment and post it on my blog.  So, be sure to check back after the game!  Due to customs restrictions, US/APO/FPO winners only - sorry!
I also want to let you know that we hope you'll join us  on Saturday, February 11 for our Stampendous Blog Hop featuring all of our new products!  You won't want to miss it!


OK, time for me to get back to the game.  In our house we celebrate Super Bowl Sunday with what we call "Snacky Dinner" - popcorn chicken, egg roll, french fries, popcorn, chips & salsa, veges & dip....all SUPER healthy (oh well, it's a holiday, right?)

Thanks for popping in - I hope you'll be back to visit soon!  Take time to get inky today!
