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....

Winter Fun!

What a fun week this has been, but I have to say I am exhausted!  My two boys have been running on pure adrenaline since school let out for Winter Break last Friday.  It's about time for them to crash - just in time for a quiet New Year!  Here in the Chicago area, we had a beautiful white Christmas which had me thinking "snowflakes".  That inspired me to make this card using the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Snowflake Trio.

I first applied Ranger Distress Ink in Dusty Concord to a panel of white card stock.  Then I stamped the two smallest snowflakes using VersaMark ink and heat set Detail Silver Embossing Powder by Stampendous.  I made my own silver card stock to mat the panel by just applying VersaMark around the outer edges of a panel of card stock, sprinkling on Detail Silver Embossing Powder and heat setting it.  Wrapped around and tied a length of sheer silver ribbon and my card was done.  My niece loves purple and she is a December baby, so this card was perfect for her birthday last week.

Well friends, it's time for me to get busy.  Our house is a disaster zone - it looks like the North Pole exploded in our family room. 

Thanks for stopping by, take time to get inky today!

Very pretty card. You have two of my favorite things on this card- snowflakes and heat embossing. Well done.
