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.

Out of this World Terrific

Hi Everyone,

Are you making plans for the new year yet? I hope one of them will include joining us for the Thursday challenges that we are hosting on the DRS Designs blog :) Since the current challenge is Heat Embossing, I decided to use that technique for the birthday card I needed to make.

I used the Starry Background stamped in Versamark and heat set it with gold embossing powder. Spaceboy Skip is an adorable image for a boy's card and I love the Out of this World Birthday sentiment; It's the perfect match for him and his space friend. However, to make it fit my card design, I stamped it separately and cut it out attaching it on top of a border made from using the Interlocking Circle stamp.

Here is a close up of the embossed stars, the clear embossing on his space helmet, ribbon and felt button embellishment. They're mail friendly ;-)

Thanks for dropping by the blog today. Get those heat guns in gear before the next challenge on this Thursday!
