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....

Hi Mermaid Kiddo!

My boys keep asking to go outside and play in the sprinkler today - it's a beautiful day here!  They love to be in the water during the summer.  If they were girls, I'd swear they were mermaids!

Speaking of mermaids, I have a little cutie to share with you today.  I love this Mermaid Kiddo stamp by Stampendous!  Isn't she adorable?  I paired her up with a sentiment from the Happy Messages Perfectly Clear stampe set.  This would be a fun card to send a little girl for her birthday or a not-so-little girl just for a quick hello.  I colored this cutie with my Prismacolor pencils and added some Stampendous Aged Silver Embossing Enamel and Blue Tinsel Embossing Powder.  I though it was a fun way to mimic water and bubbles.  A few drops of Baby Blue Liquid Pearls and she is ready to go for a swim.

This was a fun card to create, I hope I've inspired you to give it a try.  All the supplies used to make it are available at Michaels stores - so what are you waiting for?  It's time to go shopping!

Before I go, I have to tell you that soon we will be "sneak peeking" the new Stampendous catalog.  Just wait till you see all the incredible new stamps! They will all be available July 20th on the Stampendous website.  PLUS Stampendous is offering FREE shipping until the end of July on any order over $50!  How great is that?

OK, time for me to get that sprinkler set up for my little Mer-boys.

Hope all is well in your little corner of the world!

Take time to get inky today!
