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....

Mr & Mrs

It's June and that means weddings!  Within the last 6 weeks or so, two of my cousins have gotten engaged and love is in the air in our family!  

I love the simple lines of this Happy Couple stamp by Stampendous.  The coordinating Mr. & Mrs., couldn't be more perfect!  I colored this image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with tortillons and GooGone.  Yep, really, the stuff that gets the "goo" off of stuff!  It's perfect for breaking down the pigment in some colored pencils and blends them nicely.  Who knew?

I added a bit of Perfect Pearls to the veil and gown, to mimic the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder I used at the bottom of the panel.  A touch of sheer silver ribbon and VOILA!  Simple wedding card!  It would be easy to customize this card according to the wedding colors just by changing the colors of the flowers and the cummerbund & bow tie.

All of the products used to make this card are available at Michaels.  So, don't get caught at the last minute without a card for your summer weddings.  

Hope all is well in your corner of the world and that you are surrounded by love today!

Take time to get inky!
