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/Resin Crafts Collaboration


    • The Stampendous DT is playing with EnviroTex Craft Resin this week. Carmi over at the Resin Crafts Blog is also playing along with us and all of her projects are fantastic.  

      I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated when I first received the resin kit that Carmi sent us.   So, I decided to start small.   I searched the aisles at Michaels looking for a great piece to work with and settled on a bezel ring. I have a friend who loves fun and funky jewelry, so this will be part of her birthday gift (I'll show you the other part tomorrow *tease*)  




      I stamped part of one of the images from the Stampendous Tiled Quad Cube on silver card stock using Tsukineko Staz-On black ink. I added a few black rhinestones and then held my breath while I poured the resin.  I was super excited to find out that it was easy to use and a lot of fun!  I really think my friend will love it!


      I'll be back tomorrow to show you the other part of this gift set.  In the meantime, kick back with a cup of coffee or glass of iced tea and enjoy the projects that my fellow design team members and Carmi have to share with you.  I'm sure you'll be inspired to give it a try.





      Important details about the prizes... . Carmi has 3 prize packages that can be won by our fans in Canada where she lives. She will draw three Canadian winners from the comments on her blog all week. Stampendous will  have 3 prize packages for our friends with US mailing addresses. 

      • We'll draw one winner from the weekly comments on our blog.
      • We'll draw one winner from the comments on Saturday's Big Blog Hop
      • We'll draw one winner from Facebook - You need to SHARE one or more of our posts about this project on your Timeline **

      Each prize package includes a Jewelry pack of Resin, a bottle cap, bezel and button to try, and the Stampendous Charm Collection Perfectly Clear Stamps - perfect jewelry sized stamps.



      ** Why do I need to SHARE the Facebook post ?  Because Facebook has changed the way they show posts from a Page to that Page’s fans. (There are millions of posts a day now!) When you “share” a post it lets Facebook know you want to see posts from us. It also tells your friends what we’re up to and extends our “reach”. Maybe they will come like us, too! That IS why we’re doing this, to meet more people! Plus when you share, it lets us see that you did, that makes it easier to pick a winner for the contest.
      How do I SHARE a post? Visit our page on Facebook  – Stampendous – We’ll keep an EnviroTex post pinned at the top 
      it’s blue. It will pop up a window that says Share On Your Own this week – just find it and click on SHARE underneath the post, Timeline. You can write a message in the box if you like then click Share This Link. That’s it…easy!!





      OK - time to me to skedaddle, friends.  And it's time for you to check out the beautiful inspiration the other girls have for you today.  See you back here tomorrow for our big Stampendous/Resin Crafts Blog Hop.  Take time to get inky today!
