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....

Get Inky

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header
This week we're celebrating the current neon trend with the folks at Imagine Crafts! Their new line of beautiful inks called Radiant Neon are just exactly that! They positively glow with brilliant color. And they coordinate perfectly with our beautiful Frantage Color Fragments! The potential for splashes of incredible color are absolutely endless. And you can win some, too!!

The card I have for you today features the gorgeous Stampendous Jumbo Cling Rubber Butterfly Trio and Butterfly Charms Perfectly Clear Stamps sets.  I'll be giving this card to my niece for her Middle School graduation next month, so I included the Dreams Come True sentiment stamp.

The colors I used are from the new line of Radiant Neon inks.  All of the colors are absolutely fantastic!  For this card I used Electric Pink and Electric Purple. I did first and second generation stamping (stamped once and then again without re-inking the stamp).  I also inked up one of the tiny butterflies with the equally beautiful Silver Delicata ink.  

When I went to assemble the card, instead of reaching for silver card stock, I inked the edges of a panel of white card stock with the same Silver Delicata ink.  A perfect match!  The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, my very favorite ink for sentiments.
