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.

Driving by...

Hi Everyone!

Today is my posting day for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and I decided I need a masculine card for my birthday card stash.  This Steampunk set is perfect for guy cards, and I'm using this vintage looking car/truck for my card.

I did my usual thing and added a sentiment with a traditional stamp from my stash. 


Here is a closer look at the image which was super easy to color using pencils and a blender pen. 

A look at all the images in the set...



Thanks for visiting me today and stop by and see Lindsay and the rest of the DT for their projects this week!


Challenges this card is linked to are as follows:
Bunny Zoe-Vintage
Frosted Designs-Celebrate Life
Penny's Paper Craft-Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays-Anything Goes w/sentiment
The Stamp Man-Two Colors


Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Pixi Press, Pencils: Koh- I- Noor, Nesties, ribbon and button from my supplies.

How bizarre - I only yesterday googled steampunk since one of my friends is a costume fanatic and I had no idea what they were talking about. =) Lovely card - paired with a perfect sentiment. Your coloring with the pencils looks fabulous, Karin!
