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.

Aged to Perfection

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm showing off this wine themed card made with some products from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Recently they released a couple of stamps sets perfect for any oenophile you may know.  Ha!  Like my big word?

These stamps came from the set Wine Tableau (449) and paired with the sentiment included in there, it makes such an elegant birthday card.  I embossed the glass with Clear Detail (EP280) embossing powder and colored the Chardonnay with my Copic marker.



Here is a closer photo of the gorgeous glitter named Florida Beach (G1111).  It does glisten just like some sparkling sand in the sun!

Alright, it's 5:00 somewhere, right?! LOL  Seriously, all the card details can be found right here in my gallery and if you haven't done so yet, mark your caleders for the next blog hop!


Have a great day!

Pretty, PRETTY colors, Karin! This is a beautiful card - looks so "celebrational" like a special occasion. Your combinations of EPs and Gs really stand out! Of course, your layer papers always reveal your "I". Love this!

Wow, Karin! What a beautiful wine glass image with the swirls, and coloured just right (although I'll have some pinot grigio over chardonnay, myself. :P) That glitter really is fab!
