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.

Winter Cheer

Hi Everyone,

The new Christmas and winter themed stamps were released over the weekend at DRS Designs.  There are so many new ones, I was having a hard time deciding what to show off first.  This card showcases the new icicles border stamp, along with lots of others from the current catalog.  I always think blue and white is a great color combo for winter, so I stuck with that when working on this card. 

The background was stamped with the Large Filigree Snowflake, and I've really been into Penguins this year, so I stamped the cute Skating Penguin along with the Snowflakes and Winter Cheer sentiment.  The penguin (Aren't the blue ice skates fun?!) was fussy cut and attached with a pop dot.


My embellishments I chose were some glossy effects on the icicles and the three shiny dome stickers along the border.  I think this card is super cheerful and I would even send this to someone wishing them a Happy New Year :) 

I also have a post at the DRS Designs blog today, pop on by for another card I made using the newly released stamps!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Georgia Pacific White, Ink: Memento, Stampin' Up!, Border Punch: Martha Stewart
