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....

Hoppin' with Core'dinations


This week Stampendous has paired up with Core'dinations to show off some great products!  Core'dinations makes some really great card stock!  The core is a different color from the surface  and when sanded, torn or distressed, the core shows through to provide contrast.  How fun!

For my card today, I used green Core'dinations card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder.  I then sanded it to reveal the lighter core.  What a great effect!  The adorable image on this card is Icing Fluffles.  I colored Fluffles with my Prismacolor Pencils and added a bit of Crystal Glitter by Stampendous.  I added a beautiful silk ribbon by May Arts and VOILA!  A fun birthday card to add to my stash!



Are you ready to see what beautiful inspiration is waiting for you to explore?  It's time for you to sit down with a cup of coffee and check out my fellow teammates' blogs.  You are sure to be wowed!  Leave a little love along the way and you will be eligible for some fun prizes!

Time for me to get busy today - we are celebrating my son's 7th birthday this weekend and I have lots to do!  Hope all is well with you and that you'll take time to get inky today!
