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....

Coloring Inside the Lines

This week the Stampendous Design Team is partnering with Tombow to bring you some beautiful inspiration!  I don't know about you, but I am ready for Spring, so I made a bright and colorful card today using some really great products!



First I inked up this beautiful Stampendous Delicate Daisy image with Tsukineko VersaFine ink in Onyx Black.  I colored the flower with my new Tombow Jelly Bean Brush Pens.  I outline each petal of the daisy with my pink marker and then used the Blender Pen to soften the lines.  How fun!  For the stem, I scribbled some of the green marker on the Blending Palette and picked up some ink with the Blender Pen to apply.  I love the soft colors that this produces.  

I sprinkled a bit of Stampendous Jade PearLustre and Pirate Gold Embossing Powders on the card base and added a touch of Gilded Mica Fragments before I heat set from the underside.  A little May Arts ribbon and VOILA my card was done!

Be sure to leave a comment here to be in the running for a great prize package and stop by the Stampendous Blog for more creative inspiration from Stampendous and Tombow!  AND....stop by again on Friday when the Stampendous Design Team will be blog hopping with the Tombow team! 

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

Great card!! I really must get the Tombow markers that I bought a while back out and try them! I'm always afraid of coloring my stamped images. You'd never know I loved my coloring books as a kid! LOL!!
