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....

Stampendous & Core'dinations Get Together

This week we’re playing with the amazing papers from Core’dinations. For those of you unfamiliar with these papers they have a coordinating color core paper that is different from the outside color. Thus when you emboss them with raised embossing dies and sand the raised image it appears a different color. The color can also be revealed by tearing, die cutting, and just sanding the flat paper with a nifty sanding block tool (or any kind of sanding substance you have at home).  Or.....you can do like I did, and just leave the papers as is!  

I used Core'dinations Spiced Marmalade for my card base and added a layer of this super beautiful Core Couture Glitter Paper.  The sparkle is gorgeous!  My main image is the elegant Deco Lady by Stampendous.  I inked her up with VersaMark ink and embossed her with CarnelianDetail Copper and Pirate Gold Embossing Powders.  I then inked the edges of the oval with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I couldn't resist when I saw this beautiful gold ribbon by May Arts on my table - I had to use it!




So, now it's time for you to see what my teammates have created for you today.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way in order to be eligible for some great prizes!  Be sure to join us on Saturday for our big Stampendous & Core'dinations Blog Hop!  You won't want to miss all of the beautiful inspiration!  

Hope all is well in your corner of the world - take time to get inky today!  See you back here on Saturday!

can i let you in on a secret? this stamp intimidates me! I always thought I had to color it in, but I LOVE how you used a mix of embossing powders to bring color into the image and yet still keep the simple elegance of the stamp! Gorgeous job!!!
