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....

Soft Dahlia

I just ran across this photo of a card I made some time ago, and for some reason I don't think I ever shared it.  Don't know how it fell through the cracks!  Oops!  Anyhoo.... it features the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Dahlia stamp and a sentiment from the Stampendous Encouraging Words Perfectly Clear set.  I stamped this beautiful dahlia on vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed it with Detail White Embossing Powder.  I added a bit of color with my Prismacolor Pencils and then cut the dahlia out to adhere to my card front.   The "Hope" sentiment made this the perfect card to send a friend undergoing medical treatment.

All the supplies to make this card are available at Michaels.

Well friends, it's time for me to get Kidlet #2 off to school, so I'm going to skedaddle.  I've been busy stamping so I'll have more to share with you soon!  Hope you have a great day and take time to get inky today!
