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.

Birthday Cards

Edit: Linked to Practical Scrappers for their Floss, Fibers and Ribbon challenge.


Last week the Design Teams for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff had a blast celebrating the first Anniversary/Birthday of her shop at My Grafico. We had 3 days of blog hopping and virtual cropping, as well as prizes, freebies and challenges.

These birthday cards were all made with freebie images from the crop...I love that the party hat had text on it. I matched it to a traditional stamp with the same type of text and finished it off with a real pom pom! I pulled out a long neglected embossing folder for this one...

I added stickles to the candles and a small dot of glossy effects to the cherry.

Here I used my word window punch and again added glossy effects to the eye patch.

If you were here for the hop last Monday, you know that this digi set named Winged Things was up for grabs for one lucky commenter. And the winner is...Sandy! Congrats...contact me at karinwithani@att.net and I will make sure you get this set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!

Thanks so much for flying by today...The Lindsay's Stamp Stuff team will be back next Monday with our regular posts. See ya soon :)

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Basic Grey, DCWV, Punches: EK Success, Marvy, Stampin' Up!, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nesties, Markers: Copic, Marvy, Bic Mark-It, Ink: Stampin' Up!, Stamps: Hero Arts, PTI, Ribbon, rhinestones, and chipboard from my supplies.
