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 Meets Maya Road

This week we on the Stampendous design teams had a great opportunity to create with some great Maya Road products.  What fun!  I really enjoyed using their chipboard letters on the card I posted a few days ago (here).  Today I used some great stick pins by Maya Road.




This beautiful Angel Trumpet is one of my favorite Christmas stamps by Stampendous this year.  I think she is just so beautiful and elegant.  I've already made a few cards with her, and I have ideas for a few more.  I colored her with Copic markers.  I didn't have any silver card stock, so I inked up the edges of some white card stock with VersaMark ink and sprinkled on and heat set some Detail Silver Embossing Powder to make my own silver card stock - crisis averted!  A little sprinkling of Aged Silver Embossing EnamelUltra Fine Crystal Snow Glitter to the wings and a sheer silver bow almost made the card complete.  Almost.  Maya Road Vintage Pearl Trinket Pins were the perfect finishing touch!  I LOVE these pins!  



Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to see what the other girls have created today.  It's time for you to get hopping!  Take time to get inky today!

Beautiful! Love the way you added the glitter elements! I must get me some of those stick pins because with just a little tweaking they will make great snowmen for Christmas cards! TFS!

If I had to describe this card with only two words, I would say "simple elegance." I love how you made your own silver cs! Your angel is just heavenly! The crystal glitter on her wings was the perfect touch!
