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.

Happy Mother's and Father's Day

Hi Everyone!

How is everyone today? I'm fine, but feeling behind on what I need to get done regarding some home improvement projects...That always seems to be the case for me. So, what do I do to make myself feel better and continue the avoidance? What every good paper crafter does, STAMP! LOL!

I was playing around with my stamps from Scrolls Work and here are a couple of CAS cards. (Clean & Simple)

This first card uses a the Kit 2 Large Round (#2538) stamp that I used as a background stamp on this card, only this time it's the focal image. I used a solid square stamp from my current inventory (you can also get the same effect by using a small ink pad, and stamping directly onto the card with it) for the background grid, and then stamped on top with the medallion and added a brad to the center. The sentiment is from Holidays (#1602) and I finished it off with a piece of twill ribbon.
This card fits the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge-Buttons, brads and or eyelets

The second card uses the current sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping. I used the Asian Star stamp (#6336) and stamped it 3 times. I cut out two of the images, covered them in embossing powder and layered them on top of each other, turning them slightly to get the dimentional layered effect. The sentiment is also from Holidays (#1602).

Here is my close up.
This card also fits the following challenges:
Rosie D's - Red & White
Kaboodle Doodle-Embossing
