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....

We're Wobble-Hoppin!

Welcome to the Stampendous and Action Wobble Hop!  I sure hope you've had a chance to check out all of the wonderful projects the the design team members from both companies have had to share this week.  I know I, for one, have been inspired.  If you've never heard of Action Wobbles, well then prepare to be impressed!  Sometimes a card just isn't complete until it wobbles!

Today I'm sharing a card with you that uses Action Wobbles and  the uber adorable Mermaid Kiddo from Stampendous.  I love all the new Kiddos!  They are so stinkin' cute - you have to check them out!  I had tons of fun playing with Stampendous Embossing Powders on this card.  I used Blue TinselStardust and Kaleidoscope powders to make the water and added Kaleidoscope to her fin and a bit of Vintage Lilac to her hair.  It's hard to tell in this photo, but the card base is a silver shimmer card stock and I spritzed Goosebumps Texture Spray to make the paper look "wet".  This is one of those cards that looks so much better in person - what a bummer....you'll just have to take my word for it!  ;-)

The cool thing about the Action Wobble, is it makes this little Kiddo look like she's floating in the water.  These things are just so much fun to play with.  You really ought to give it a try!




So, you know you want to give them a try.  How would you like to WIN a set of 6 Action Wobbles Springs and Cling Hula Kiddo?  All you have to do is leave comments all along the Hop and you'll have a chance to win!



PLUS.....because we're feeling generous, how about a SECOND CHANCE to win????

6 Action Wobble Springs and Tree Trim Kiddos!  How cute would it be to put that top Kiddo on an Action Wobble?!?


How can you win? Comment on the blogs below! At the end of the weekend (yes, you have until Sunday night) we'll choose two of the blogs below at random. They will then choose a random winner and we'll notify you here! Here's who is playing today:


Missed the beginning of our week of wobbles??? Check them out here - MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY

OK - time for me to get hoppin'.  Then our family has a full day ahead of us.  Hope you have a wonderful day and take time to get inky today!
