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.

Hi Everyone!

My card today was made with one of the photo realistic stamps carried by Scrolls Work.  These are very cool and unique stamps.  There are also may different ones to choose from and perfect for those vintage and collage projects that are so popular.  Also, Scrolls Work stamps are very deeply etched red rubber, and stamp clear impressions time after time.  Not to mention, VERY affordable!

I chose to pair her with one of my favorite stamps from Scrolls Work, Eiffel #2001.  I also used the Kit 2 large round  #2538 filigree stamp to frame my card and added the sentiment from Charming Girly Quips #1462.  The background was made using a brayer and sponging.  If you can't see it in the photo, I added a rhinestone to the little bow in her hair :) Thanks for stopping in to visit today and this card is linked to The City Crafter Challenge Blog where the theme is Paris!

P.S. Scrolls Work has reached the milestone of 100 followers.  In honor of this you have a chance to win FREE STAMPS!  Just Click Here!

Karin, how clever to use a stamp to border your card. A great idea and one I just might try myself. It is fun to see what others create because it is inspiring. The darling photo stamps of children at Scrolls Work are priceless. I too love them.
