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 and May Arts Hop To It

Today's the big day for the Stampendous-May Arts Ribbon Blog Hop!  You are sure to be inspired by the creations that the gals on the design teams have to share.  To see the list of who is hopping with us today, stop by the Stampendous Blog.  


The card that I have to show you uses the super-duper adorable Cake Dreamer stamp.  This is Pebble and he is dreaming of an upcoming birthday in this fun Gruffies® image by Ellen Jareckie. This "Dream Big" sentiment is included in the Crosswords Perfectly Clear stamp set.  It is the perfect message to pair with this image!

I love this ribbon by May Arts!  My boys hate when I put ribbons or bows on cards for them to give their friends.  This is one of the few ribbons I can get away with and not have them mad at me.  

The patterned papers are by DCWV and are found in the All About Boys and the Dots, Stripes & Plaids mat stacks.  The sentiment was stamped with Tsukineko VersaFine Vintage Sepia in and the image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  

Ok, time for me to scoot.  After making this card, I have a taste for cake and think I need to bake while the boys are at school today.  

Don't forget to leave me a comment here in order to be in the running for some great prizes.  Stop by the Stampendous blog for more information.

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


Now go see what our Design Team has for you today!
