Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Purple Peace

Hi All,

I made this card over the weekend in between getting craft fair items organized. First I used the color inspiration from the challenge at Moxie Fab World...Purple! And the gauze-like shimmer idea came from the challenge over at Everything but the Kitchen Sink. Can you guess what the challenge was? Using toilet paper...LOL! How's that for crazy??! The toilet paper is what is covering my main image. There was a technique a while back called the Dryer Sheet Technique, but I thought I would see if TP worked. I stamped the image of the trees, and after it dried I sprayed it with adhesive. Carefully I put the paper over it (1 ply) and the sprinkled it with stamping glitter. It was a little messy at one point, but the end result is very impressive and pretty.



Well, you know that I love when you stop by and visit and I hope you have some time to stamp something fun today!



Details- Stamps: Inkadinkadoo, Penny Black, Ink: Stampin' Up, Glitter: JoAnn's, Nesties, paper from my supplies

What a beautiful card! Did you have to use heat and stick powder or was the adhesive from the TP enough to hold the glitter? I'd love to try this out.
