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 Hops with Fast Finish

All week Stampendous and Beacon Adhesives have teamed up to bring you some great projects using Fast Finish Decoupage Glue.  We wrap up the week with a creative Blog Hop for you - full of wonderful inspiration.  Fast Finish is a great decoupage medium that is so easy to work with and a snap to clean up.  It dries perfectly clear and really quickly.  The best part is there is no stickiness.  It is, by far, my favorite decoupage medium now!  You really have to try it!

The project I am sharing with you today is created using all materials that are available at Michaels.  First I painted a wood frame with Christmas Green paint.  I stamped the beautiful Poinsettia Background on white tissue with VersaMark ink and then embossed it with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The embossed tissue was then applied to the frame using Fast Finish and I added a coat of Fast Finish on top of the tissue to seal it. 



To embellish the frame, I stamped the gorgeous Jumbo Poinsettia on white card stock twice.  I colored them both, cut them out and gently curled the petals before applying Fast Finish.  Add a few gold beads in the center and VOILA!  

Now it's time for you to check out what my team mates have created today!  You're sure to be amazed!  I am surrounded by some super talented ladies!!!  Don't forget to leave comments along the way....we'll be choosing random comments to win some fantastic prizes!  You don't want to miss out on this chance!

Ok, I'm outta here!  Take time to get inky today....(after you check out these fabby blogs!)

I love the look of that tissue paper against the dark green frame! So subtle but so pretty. And, your gorgeous layered poinsettia is the perfect accent for this frame, too.
