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....

Ribbon Love

I LOVE ribbon!  And May Arts Ribbon is the cream of the crop!  It's so great to work with and they have a great selection!  

This week Stampendous and May Arts are teaming up to bring you some beautiful inspiration!  Stampendous stamps and May Arts ribbon are a perfect combination!  How could you possibly go wrong when you pair these two together?  All week design team members have great projects to share with you.  Visit all the blogs every day and leave comments to be eligible to win.  We'll choose a random blogger each day to pick a random winner.  The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!

Today I'm sharing a fun card with you.  I used this great Stampendous Halloween Magic image and May Arts Satin Pleats Ribbon.  I also sprinkled on  some Aged Black and Vintage Lilac embossing powders.  These powders are so much fun to "bling" up a background.
