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....

It's Time to HOP!!!

Today the Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils design teams have gotten together for a summer fun blog hop.  Dreamweavers Stencils and Stampendous Essentials are a winning combination!  Add a Stampendous stamp or two and you have perfection!

Today I'm sharing a tag that I made for my mother-in-law.  She loves lighthouses, so this Lighthouse stencil was my first choice.  The lighthouse and the sailboat are actually on the same stencil, but I inked them up on 2 pieces of card stock so look like two separate images.  The tag itself was inked with distress inks and the Petals Background stencils and then I added Crystal Embossing Powder over the whole tag and heat set it.  I thought it looked like water droplets.  

Stampendous has a wonderful line of Essentials that pair perfectly with Dreamweavers stencils.  On my tag I used Lemonade Yellow Fun Flock for the sun, Multi Ultra Fine Crystal GlitterChampagne PearLustre Embossing PowderClear Bark EPDetail Black EPRuby Red EP, and Blue Ultra Fine Pastel Glitter.

The Stampendous Soaring Sentiments stamp set has some really great messages and I thought this one was perfect!  I added some ribbon and a shell charm from Blue Moon Beads and VOILA!  





We hope you’ve been following along all week so that you can have the opportunity to win one of three terrific prize packages!
