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.

Short Chick

Hi Everyone,

I've got two stamp-y cards to share with you today.  They are both made using stamps from Hambo Stamps and they both use the same Short Chick (4222) stamp. 

For this first card I decided to stack this cute birdie, so that it would match the What's Up, Chick (2704)sentiment which is also from Hambo Stamps.  I stamped the chick 3 times and colored them with my Copic markers, making the one on top a different color.  See the little birdie on the paper too? ;)


Then, just to prove you don't always have to color every stamped, open line image, I played along with the Almost Monochrome challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  The instructions were to use two neutrals and one color and all the stamping was to be in the same color. I used the To One of my Favorite Peeps  (4208)sentiment, since I only used one bird ;)


Pretty successful if I do say so myself. 

Don't forget about the new challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown too.  Lots of fun going on over there!

Thanks for stopping by to check in on me and I'll be around to visit you as well.  I have my book club meeting this week.  We are discussing Secrets of Eden by Chris Bohjalin.  


It's a mystery, who done-it...Except it wasn't that mysterious to me.  Kinda had it figured out waaay before the end.  Oh well.  

 Have a great day!

Gorgeous cards Karin, your chicks are so cute:) The book is not my cup of tea, I am more of an old romantic:)

Pam said...

Those chicks are SO cute - I like both the cards but the ones where they are standing on top of each other (you know those short chicks will do anything to get height)really gives me a chuckle.
I love a good mystery but so engrossed in the non fiction world at the moment - and I just read Pinky's comment so of course I'm off to fix a cuppa ;)

Great use of tissue tape - one of my favorite things!

So I loved the first card, but then I got to the second... with red and music! Awesome. :)

Cheryl said...

What a cute, little chick! I love how you stacked her up on the first card. The paper you used is adorable and perfect. I love how you left the chick uncolored on the second. I never think to do that. Great cards!
