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 Sneak Peek Week

This is an exciting week for the Stampendous Design Teams!  We get to SNEAK PEEK some of our favorite images from the new catalog.  They are ALL amazing and I would be hard-pressed to pick one favorite.  With all that fabulousness, how could I possibly pick just one?!?!?  It's like asking me which of my kids is my fave.

The card I'm sharing with you today uses the gorgeous Leaf Background stamp and the Kind Friendship sentiment.  This image was so much fun to color!  I finally spent some time playing with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the result.  After I colored the panel, I embossed with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  I stamped with embossed the sentiment on vellum, so I didn't cover up too much of those beautiful leaves.


Just wait until you see this new catalog.  You'll want to start you Christmas list early! Everything from the new catalog will be available for purchase through the Stampendous website on July 20th and they have FREE shipping until the end of July on any order over $50!  What a deal!  

Now you get to take a peek at Suzanne's blog and see what she has to sneak peek today.  You're sure to be wow-ed by her beautiful creativity!

Time for me to skedaddle.  Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Take time to get inky today!
