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.

Perfect Fit

Hi Everyone,

I have another card made using an image from the set Posh N Trendy from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I think my favorite is that of the dress form and it was just what I needed to make a card for my friends birthday.

I paper pieced the dress form and then added a skirt using lace and some pearl embellishments.  Not sure how I feel about it, because it hides the darling form so much.


So here it is without anything...What do you think?  I would love if you left me a comment with your choice.

The sentiment is a traditional stamp and I loved using these papers with a sewing theme.


Here is a closer shot...


And a view of the entire set of images...

Hello Karin,
You have made a wonderful card. I prefere the one with the lace and pearls. Those items make it just that little bit more special. And those buttons are a nice accent.
Greetings,
Karin

Love it! I like the plain one myself.

Thanks for playing along with The Altered Alice! I like both versions. Maybe a compromise, like a belt of ribbon and lace around the hips? More embellished than the plain version yet still revealing the lines of that awesome freeze form! Either way, what a great card that any friend would be pleased to receive.

Hola! Karin

Very elegant card.. I love both versions.

Monica said...

I like both of them... but the one with lace is strikingly pretty and feminine. You make lovely cards...

Thanks for becoming my follower... am so glad!

You can definitely see the benefits of both Karin, the lace adds a wee bit of romance and feminineness to it yet the second is beautiful without the lace.

Thank you so much for sharing with us at ooh la la this week

This is gorgeous, Karin! I actually prefer it with the pearls and lace skirt because it balances the buttons and twine. I love all the details and beautiful greens on this card!

Love 'em both, but I'm a CAS girl so I tend to like the unadorned card a tad more. I love the feminine form in this set, too!!

I'm no help, I love them both, Karin! The colors, sentiments, and embellishments (or lack of) are just perfect. I'd say make two! :)

I love them both too Karin! Who could choose between both beautiful versions! I love the sentiment you paired it up with.

I love the plain one. Even though I am a huge pearls and lace fan, I like seeing those nice mannequin hips haha!

Lindsey said...

Such an awesome card, Karin! I hear you on the dress form, but I like it even more with the skirt, because it's so perfect-looking!

Lindsay Weirich said...

I like the skirt too!

Margie said...

They are both awesome, Karin! I know, I am no help...

Micki said...

Ooh! I love both cards but I think the lace and pearls kicks it up a notch on the cuteness chart. I've got to CASE your super cute cards. TFS

Both versions of your card are cool, but I prefer the lace. Thanks for sharing them in The Altered Alice challenge.
