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.

DRS Designs Holiday Blog Slide

Hi Everyone!

Today is the day of the Big Holiday Blog Slide featuring the new holiday releases from DRS Designs! Prizes will be given away, so be sure to end up at the DRS Designs Blog, answer a question in the comments section, and you might be a winner.  The more answers we receive, the more prizes that will be given away!

You should have come to my blog by way of Julie's blog.  If not, start at the beginning of the slide at the DRS Designs blog.

My card today features the new Shooting Star and Three Wise Men Peace Stamps. I stamped the stars four times on my background with the tails shooting outward, so only they would show.  I wanted to create a unique background using those cool flourishes.


The center image of the Three Kings was stamped in black and embossed with rainbow embossing powder for a bit of shine. 


The sand was colored in using a Copic Marker. It would be so easy to mass produce and the bling adds a bit of a wow factor for the recipient.

Your next stop on the Blog Slide is Jennifer's Blog, but here is the entire list in case you are lost.

Hey Karin,
This is a lovely card. I love that selfmade background. Those rounded corners an that nice stamp to. (The dessertscene gives me a feeling of warmth here in a cold and freezing Oostende)
Greetings from Belgium,
Karin
