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 & Staedtler Fun!

This week the Stampendous gals are teaming up with the folks at STAEDTLER to create some gorgeously colored projects featuring Stampendous & STAEDTLER.  The card I'm featuring today uses their fabulous Ergosoft Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  These pencils are so easy to work with and the handy stand-up box keeps them close at hand and ready to use.

The card that I'm sharing today features the Hot Air Trio and Soaring Sentiments Perfectly Clear stamps.  These stamps are part of the Stampendous April Release.  The "clouds" are from the Cling Jumbo Bird of Paradise set.  The clouds were heat embossed with Blue Magic Embossing Powder.




In case you haven't already heard, each day this week all of the participating Design Team Members are posting projects using Stampendous and STAEDTLER products.  You'll want to leave a comment every day on every blog because at the end of the week the STAEDTLER Designers will each give away one package to someone who commented on their blog this week.  PLUS each day the Stampendous Design Team members will pool our daily comments and choose one random winner for our prize package.  You don't want to miss out on the chance to win these great prizes!

I like how the balloons seem to be floating off the card! Those clouds are pretty neat in the background too! I love layers!
