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....

Stampendous and Resin Crafts are Hopping!

I'm so happy you found us today! We've been enjoying the fun crafting potential of combining our fantastic stamp images with EnviroTex Jewelry Resin from Environmental Technologies. Carmi Cimiata of the Resin Crafts Blog has helped us learn so much about how this product works, what it can and cannot do. We're so appreciative of her and the folks at ETI who sent us all some resin to play with. {big round of applause!}


As I told you yesterday, I was a bit intimidated by the resin.  But I had so much fun using the kit that I received.  I'll definitely be using resin again.  The project I have to show you today is a cuff bracelet that I made to match the ring I showed you yesterday.  The friend that I am giving this to wears a lot of black, grey and silver - so this will be perfect for her.  I kept it kind of simple, to go with her style (though I think some Stampendous Crushed Glass Glitter or Mica Fragments would be a fun addition.)  



I stamped the Tiled Quad Cube with Black Staz-On ink on silver card stock, added a few black rhinestones, adhered it to the cuff bracelet and poured my resin.  Easy-peasy!  All of the materials to make these projects are available at Michaels - so now it's your turn to give it a try!


We've prepared some fantastic projects to inspire you today. We hope you'll run over to your local Michaels or other craft store and pick up some resin and some Stampendous stamps and get playing. If you make something fun, please take a picture and put it on our Facebook page! We'd love to see what you're doing!


As you visit each blog, you'll be entered in our drawing for a great prize package when you leave a comment! If you don't tell us you were there by commenting, we can't include you in the drawing! We'll pick a winner from today's comments separate from the commenters throughout the week. Get hoppin!
