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....

Here We Go Again!

All week the Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils Design Teams have been collaborating to bring you creative inspiration.  

The card I'm sharing with you today uses the beautifully intricate Book Cover Stencil.  It is gorgeous!  This would be stunning for a wedding or anniversary card.  I chose to use Pearlescent Embossing Paste on white card stock to make the beautiful Stampendous butterfly from the Cling Jumbo Lovely Garden stamp set stand out.  The butterfly was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I love the way it looks against the pearly background.  Cutting out the butterfly was a snap with the new Lovely Garden Die Cut set.
