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.

Hive Been Thinking of You!

Hi Everyone!

I needed to make a card for a friend who recently moved, so I decided to ink up this stamp I bought back in the early summer from Hambo Stamps.  I just love this Tree Hive (2711) and since the challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown was "dimension", I chose to color it twice and pop it up.  I also stamped the Tiny Bee(3114) and cut it out and added it on a pop dot as well. 

If you are wondering about how I managed to get the fuzzy dimensional pattern on the paper, it's a secret...Just kidding!  Totally bought it like that :)  But the line around the image on the inside of the Nestie cut out?  That idea I borrowed from Amanda, after seeing her do that on her card here.

And a side shot of the dimension and the glossy glaze I added to the hive:

Whenever I make square cards, I make them 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  This way I can add something hanging off the card, yet it still fits in a regular envie.  Hanging off this card is the sentiment, "Hive Been Thinking of You." (2712)
Thanks for dropping by today...No big plans for me this Labor Day weekend.  How are you spending the last unofficial weekend of summer?
