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....

Surprise Changito

Found another card that I never managed to post.  This was a fun card to make - you can't go wrong with Changito!  For the background I used Stampendous Boss Gloss to make a polka dot pattern on my card base then sprinkled on Stampendous embossing powders (PearLustre Embossing Powders would be great for this!) and heat set.  What a fun background!  I stamped my favorite little monkey, Changito and colored him with Prismacolor pencils.  This stamp is Stampendous Surprise Changito.  Punch the edge with a notebook punch add some twine and a button, stamp a sentiment (this one is from Stampendous Happy Messages Perfectly Clear stamp set) and VOILA!  A fun card for any age!

Thanks for stopping by today!  My boys went back to school today and my to-do list is a mile long now that the house is quiet again!  First on my list is to make a few cards for an upcoming Stampendous catalog - just wait until you see the new stuff!  You are sure to be wow-ed!!!!

Have a great day!

Take a little time to get inky today!
