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....

Daisy Thanks

I thought I'd try something different when I made this card.  Instead of coloring the flowers, I first masked off  the sides of the panel and applied Distress Ink in Dusty Concord with a sponge applicator.  It was fun!  Then I stamped this great Daisy Thanks bouquet and sentiment with Tsukineko Tuxedo Black ink.  All the supplies used to make this card are available at Michaels.  

It was a quick and easy card to make.  I'm thinking it would make a great card set - each with a different color Distress Ink.  I may have just decided what to make for my boys to give their teachers next week on the last day of school!

Before I leave, I have to tell you to stop by again next week.  The gals at Stampendous are teaming up with Staedtler.  You don't want to miss the excitement!  We'll have great projects to share with you all week and then there's a Blog Hop on Friday with some fantastic prizes!

Ok, time for me to boogie.  Hope you're having a great week! 
 Take time to get inky today!
