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....

It's "Wobble" Week

This week the Design Team from Stampendous has teamed up with the design team from Action Wobbles.  What's that you say?  You've never heard of Action Wobbles?  Well then, you're in for a real treat!  An Action Wobble is a really fun little "spring" type sticker that is attached to an element (in this case a stamped image) and then adhered to your card or scrapbook page.  They add a fun movement to your piece of art and bring a smile to everyone's face.  My kids were so impressed when I showed them that they had to make cards too.  They thought Action Wobbles were just about the coolest thing they have ever seen!

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you.  I first stamped the Stampendous Jumbo Santa (available at Michaels), colored the jolly old man and cut him out.  I adhered an Action Wobble to the back and then attached it to my Christmas Background.  Of course Santa needed a little bling, so I added Winter Wonderland and Red Tinsel embossing powders.  Here he is....





So, would you like to win some wobbles? Visit each of the blogs below and make a comment on each. We'll choose one blogger at random, and she'll choose one commenter at random to win 6 Action Wobbles and Halloween Sprite.
   

Here are the ladies that are playing along today - be sure to Wobble on over to their blogs to see what they have to share with you.  Remember to comment at each stop for more chance to win.



Oops, almost forgot....while I'm here, I thought I'd share the card my 8 year old made for Gramma for her birthday.  He used Stampendous Block Art Owls and inside stamped "Owl always love you" from Stampendous. The owl on the left is attached to an Action Wobble and when it moves she looks like she's leaning in for a kiss. TJ can hardly wait to give Gramma her card!  He's so proud of himself....not only did he get to play with Mommy's stamps, he got to wobble and use my Cuttlebug!  He told me he felt like a real artist!  We had so much fun getting inky together!

Ok, now I'm leaving!  Check out the other blogs today and then come back here on Saturday when we'll be Wobble Hopping!

Hope all is well in your corner of the world - take time to get inky today!
