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 Dreamweavers

This week Stampendous and Dreamweaver are once again teaming up to show you how stamps and stencils work together beautifully.  The Dreamweaver stencils have such beautiful designs and their embossing paste is so easy to work with.  Together, they make the perfect background for Stampendous stamps!

Today I'm sharing a card that features the gorgeous Stampendous Cling Blossom Beauty Stamp.  The flowers on her head are included with this stamp set and are a breeze to die cut using the Blossom Beauty Die Cut set.  I added a few leaves from the Cling Lovely Garden stamp set and the coordinating Lovely Garden Die Cut Set.  All of the stamped images were stamped with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I'm still practicing my coloring technique, but it sure is fun to practice!  Thanks so much to Crafter's Companion for their generosity!  

For the background, I used the graceful Large Flourish stencil by Dreamweaver.  I applied Pearlescent Embossing Paste on white card stock. Once it was dry, I lightly applied Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. What a great background!  I'll be reaching for this stencil again and again! And the sheen on this embossing paste is spectacular in person!


 

Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to stop by the Stampendous Blog to see who else has a special project to share with you today.  Stop by again on Friday when I'll have another fun project to share with you!

Take time to get inky today!
