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....

Hopping with Stampendous & May Arts

Today the Stampendous Gals and May Arts Ribbon have gotten together to give you lots and lots of beautiful inspiration.  When you're done with this Blog Hop you will be itching to ink up some Stampendous stamps and to embellish with some beautiful May Arts ribbon!  Be sure to check out all of the blog stops today and leave a little love along the way for your chance to win some Stampendous goodies and some May Arts ribbon!

I decided to make a baby card today.  I used the super adorable Lion Baby and Baby Stardust by Stampendous.  Both of these stamps are available at Michaels.  The ribbon is a beautiful blue Twill Stripes by May Arts.  This ribbon is gorgeous and I think I need it in every color!  I added a bit of Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder to the swirls around the quote.

Speaking of this quote, it's one of my favorites and has a special place in my heart.  We had it printed on the bottom of my oldest son's birth announcements eight and a half years ago.  It makes me smile every time I look at this stamp! 



Enough jabbering from me, it's time for you to get hopping!  Don't forget to comment along the way!

Thanks for stopping by take time to get inky today!

I like the simple look. You could have colored the lions, but then it would have been TOO MUCH! nice

I like the use of the ribbon cut in a banner. The apparent folding of the ribbon over the blue mat solves the potential problem of the ribbon edge fraying. I'm putting your card photo on my idea page!
