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.

Easter Blooms

Hi Everyone,

I'm here today showing off one of my Easter cards made with my stamps from DRS Designs.  I love the bright colors; they look extra cheerful this time of year.  I used the beautiful Easter sentiment (Blooming Easter) along with the Spring Flower Suncatcher stamp and layered them both on top of the Swiss Dot embossed background, which always looks so dainty.

There was a small glitch in the making of this flower stamp, so if you want to order it from DRS Designs, make sure you inquire first.  I'm not sure if things have been ironed out yet or not, but they will let you know :)

Those two flowers were recycled off an old project, and they matched so well, I'm glad I hung on to them and was able to put them to good use here.

Here is the close up of the flower up on a pop dot and some Stickles, so that it would tie into the dimensional flowers above.

Thanks for visiting today, and I have another project over at the DRS Designs blog today, so stop by check that out.
