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....

Away in a Manger

This week the Stampendous design teams are sharing Inspirational Christmas ideas.  Today I have a card I made using supplies that are available at Michaels.  This beautiful set is Nativity Carol by Stampendous.  I stamped the musical score with Tsukineko London Fog ink and then stamped the Nativity scene with VersaMark ink and embossed with Sapphire PEARLustre Embossing Powder.  The star was embossed with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

I have to say I really love the way this card turned out, it just seems so peaceful and serene to me.  This will be headed to someone very special this Christmas season.

Be sure to stop by the Stampendous blog to see who else has Inspirational Christmas ideas to share with you.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Take time to get inky!
