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.

Hi Everyone,

Gosh, our weather has been divine this past week and our warm stretch is continuing here in Ohio.  I have major spring fever, but none the less, I'm here showing off a card made with stamps from the newest release  at DRS Designs.

 These new stamps just might be a must have if you are a dog lover, or make cards for the dog lover in your life :) The new Wags the Dog stamp is just so cute! I stamped him 3 times on brown and beige card stock and fussy cut him, adding some shading with my Copic markers. The Sit Stay Greeting is one sentiment, but I inked up each phrase separately, punched them out and added one above each pup.



I used the Dog Paw Background stamp behind the sentiment, adding one paw print from it as embellishment on each portion of the phrase.

Have you played along in the challenges at DRS Designs?  They happen every Thursday, and the theme this week is CAS.  Here is my card for your inspiration:


Stamp credits for this card are as follows:


Challenges for Dog Card:
Heidi's Hobbystuggu-Animal as focus
AllSorts-3 in a Row

Challenges for Butterfly Card:
Really Reasonable Ribbon-Spring and Ribbon
Sparkles-Spring or Mom

Details not listed above- Paper: The Paper Company, Ink: Stampin' Up!, Punches: EK Success, Stampin' Up!, Embossing Folder: Provocraft, Bling and ribbon from my supplies.
