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....

Boo to You!

 Did I scare you?  Probably not and I'm sure this little cutie won't scare you either.  

The card I'm sharing today features the super adorable Stampendous Pumpkin Kiddo.  She's too cute to spook!  And I'm sure she won't be pulling any tricks, she's all about the treats!  I also inked up the Stampendous Haunting Background.  I love the look of white ink on the black card stock.  And I found this really fun Halloween ribbon at Michaels.

If you want to see more cute creations featuring the Stampendous Halloween Kiddos, stop by the Stampendous blog to see which other team members and projects to share with you.

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's rainy in our neighborhood today, not prime trick-or-treating weather - but it's a great day to get inky!

Happy Halloween!!!

Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives Stick Together

I am STUCK on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!  All of their products are so easy to work with and you will find the perfect adhesive for every application!  On this card I used E-Z Runner Permanent Strips for the main image.  I love that the dispenser is refillable!  Then I used 3-D Foam Squares for the sentiment.  These foam square hold just about anything, the backing liner is easy to remove (a definite plus!) and they are available in black and white.  How could you go wrong?

The image on this card is Angel by Stampendous and is available at Michaels.  It is one of my favorites for this Christmas season and I have a feeling I will be using it on many of my holiday cards and projects this year.  I colored the Angel with my Copics and added Stampendous Crystal Embossing Powder to the wings and dove.  The border is embossed with silver embossing powder - I think it looks so pretty against the blue shimmer card stock.

How would you like to win a great prize package full of Scrapbook Adhesive and Stampendous products?  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog and check out the other Stampendous design team blog posts from this week and you will be in the running for one of three prize packages.

Stampendous is Stuck on Scrapbook Adhesives

The folks at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L have very generously shared some of their fabulous products with the Stampendous design teams.  Their products are great to work with!  On this card I used their E-Z Dots Permanent Adhesive and 3-D Foam Squares in Black.  The E-Z Dots have quickly become my favorite tape runner-type adhesive.  They are easy to use and I love that the dispenser is refillable!  The 3-D Foam Squares are the perfect size and I love that they are available in black!  You should really check out all of their products!

The Kiddo Toyland stamps by Stampendous that I used for this card are available at Michaels right now.  So, be sure to check out all of the fantastic Christmas stamps and start planning your holiday cards.  Christmas is right around the corner, what are you waiting for?

Happy Fall Y'all!

How cute is this scarecrow???  Lisa Hindsley has created this Friendly Scarecrow for Stampendous and I think he is just so sweet.  He's a lot of fun to color and I really enjoyed making this card.  I'm sure I'll be getting him inky again soon.  The fence border punch seemed like a natural on this card and I added a sentiment from the Happy Messages Perfectly Clear stamp set by Stampendous.

My youngest son and I both celebrate birthdays this month, so I'm sure this card will be sent to someone special very soon.  How can you not share such a Friendly Scarecrow?

Time for me to get busy on my to-do list for the day.  It's my day off and my list is a mile long.  Hope all is well in your corner of the world.  Thanks for stopping by!

It's Finally Fall!

It's finally Fall!  I don't know about your neck of the woods, but in our area the leaves are changing, the air is cooling and pumpkins are everywhere.  I love Fall!  This past weekend, our town celebrated with our annual Fall Fest, so now I am in the spirit!  That's why I was so excited to get Jack Sunflower inky.  Isn't he great? Jack is from the Lisa Hindsley Collection by Stampendous.  I paired him with the Autumn Words background stamp.  Lisa has some really fantastic images, I'll share another one with you tomorrow.  

I colored Jack Sunflower with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers - I've had so much fun experimenting with color combinations.  Speaking of combos, have you see the "Color of the Day" posts by my friend, Jennifer Dove?  She's an AMAZING artist!  Check out her blog.  You will definitely be inspired by her creativity!

Ok friends, it time for me to scoot. Hope all is well in your corner of the world and that you'll take time to get inky today!
