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.

Art Deco

Hi Everyone,

I took inspiration for my card share today from the papers that I used. I thought the design and colors were very Art Deco, so I used the stamp set by this very name (Art Deco 320) from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I love the 1920's look of the South Beach (1700-320M) stamp, so I went graphic in my interpretation. I stamped it in Versamark (99702) and used Silver Detail Embossing Powder (EP257) to bring a glamorous look to the project.

I added two strips of 1/4" Tear-iffic Tape (SAT01) coated in Sassy Silver glitter (G1050) down either side of of my center paper and I dove into my stash of flowers and was able to layer up one to match my card. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (99604) and I also added a silver ribbon for even more wow. If you want full card details, visit my gallery here.

Thanks for visiting today!

Karin, your card is really pretty. I would not have considered using only EP as the coloring, and it looks fabulous! The whole scene, and colors, too, look like St. Petersburg here in Florida. My mom used to live on the beach in an area where the art deco colors were prevalent. LOL Thanks for sharing and bringing back the memories.
