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.

Christmas Memories

Hi Everyone,

I'm sharing another Christmas card today and it was made using the new stamps from DRS Designs.  I started off by die cutting the edge of my cardbase and making the backing paper by using the Large Original Plaid stamp.  I tried something a little different and made diagonal stripes and I really like the way it turned out.  I colored the new I Scene a Stocking stamp with Copics, fussy cut it out and added Stickles to the top fluff.

The sentiment named Lingering Christmas was stamped in matching green ink and die cut, with a bit of chalk shading to mask the stark white.  Both pieces were then attached with pop dots.  A bit of twine and gems finished off the card. 

You can find all of these stamps and more at DRS Designs.  Have a great day!

Beautiful job, Karin! The stocking is perfect and your coloring really lets it shine. The bling around the sentiment is just right - and the sentiment is a winner. Love the bit of twine, too =)
