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.

Candy Corn Halloween

Hi Everyone,

I'm so excited about my Halloween card today! DRS Designs has just recently released some great new stamps for the fall crafting season. I knew that this Candy Corn Wreath was going to be a clear favorite of mine the moment I saw it. Why? Well, I couldn't wait to color it up and fit the darling Candy Corn Buzz Bee (a favorite from last year) right in the center. Can you see her sparkly wings in the my photo?

Of course I had to make some backing papers and for those I used the Interlocking Circles, and Starry Background. After stamping the stars on my yellow paper, I went ahead and dry embossed right over them for some added texture.


The Happy Halloween is also a new stamp this month. It's a small one, so it works great with those punches we all have. I love the fun colors of this season, it makes stamping so much fun!

DRS Designs is also sponsoring the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, pop on by for your chance to win!

Challenges for this card:
Wee Memories-No Patterned Paper
Details not listed above: Paper: The Paper Company, Ink: Memento, Stampin' Up!, Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug, Punches: Stampin' Up!, EK Success, Nesties, Stickles, Ribbon from my supplies.

How cute and yes, I can definitely see the sparkle in her wings! Great idea to stamp the paper and then emboss, I always forget little things like that.

So cute Karin! I love how the embossing is tied into the circle background and the star background to the stars in the candy corn wreath. I just love it when everything matches!
