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....

Christmas is Coming

This month the Stampendous Design Teams are sharing gift ideas.  It's time to start thinking about holiday gift giving and time to get inky!

The project I'm sharing with you today was shown in the October 2013 Stampendous catalog.  This is the first time I've had any of my cards or projects in a catalog and I am over-the-moon excited!  The catalog is beautiful and I'm thrilled to be a part of it with such amazing artists.  You'll want to make yourself cozy and grab a cup of coffee while you take your time checking out this beautiful new catalog!

The project I'm sharing today features the beautiful Cling Jumbo Grapes stamp and Glory Verse stamp, both by Stampendous.  I colored the grapes with my Staedtler pencils - LOVE them!  I also added Vintage Lilac Tinsel and Amethyst PEARLustre Embossing Powder around the edges.  May Arts Ribbon is the perfect finishing touch!

I'm glad to have one Christmas gift done and ready to give.  I'm sure the friend that I'm giving this to will like it - her kitchen has a vineyard theme, this will fit right in!  Be sure to check the Stampendous blog all this month for more gift-giving ideas!

Thanks for stopping by today!  

Take time to get inky!

Absolutely love how the green of the bow and the purple of the edges makes it look like a bushel of grapes itself! Beautiful and creative! Thanks so much for using Stampendous products!
