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.

Autumn is a Second Spring

Hi Everyone,

I'm showing off another fall themed card today to get you excited about the Autumn Inspirations Blog Hop next week for Sparkle and Sprinkle.

Mark you calender and get excited because this month all Autumn themed stamps are 15% off!

I used one of my favorite embossing folders for the background of my card and I used one of the lovely sentiments from the Autumn Swirl set to make a little sign.  The sentiment reminded me of something you would see on a piece of holiday decor, so I decided to make it into something that resembled that.  I stamped in a rainbow ink pad to get the multicolored effect and added the Swirly Oak and Swirly Maple leaves embossed in the following colors:

Thanks for visiting today and I look forward to showing you some glittery beauties next week!

Enjoy the day :)

How pretty Karin! I love that sentiment too, and it is starting to feel a bit like fall outside with the cooler evenings.

Oh I love it, Karin! Perfectly autumn inspiring. Although it is way too early to be bringing out those colors. I'm tempted to glue leaves to trees when I've seen one or two fall off.

Fall... not my favourite season, as it means winter is not far behind. But I DO like the autumn colours and design of this card!

Nana Connie said...

Karin, Love the embossed paper you used and those leaves are spectacular! I'm so ready for this summer to be over and autumn to actually be there when I step outside. :-)

Gina said...

So pretty!! I look forward to fall every year because of all the colors on the trees, and you have captured that feel beautifully!
