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.

Chic

Hi Everyone,
One of my favorite types of cards to make are feminine ones, because they allow me the opportunity to use my beloved glitter and bling, in any amounts that I want :)

For these cards, I inked up the set Cocktail Party(375), from Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamps.  I think these stamps are just the perfect thing for the upcoming prom season, don’t you? I stamped the Chandelier (2033-275E ), colored it and layered it on a base of Sticker Paper (99558) coated in Sassy Silver glitter (G1050). I used Versamark (99702) for Charisse (2034-374H) and the sentiment Chic (2040-375A) along with Silver Detail embossing powder (EP257). My previous card share here, I also used the silver embossing powder on black and I really loved the glamorous look.


And since I couldn’t stop there, I also made this girlfriend themed card. Here I used Black Detail embossing powder (EP171) and Olivia ( 2035-275E). The sentiment was stamped and coated in Sparkling Snow Glitter (G1003) , attached with a pop dot and the 1/4″ Tear-iffic Tape (SAT01) was used for the Dazzling Rose (G1085) glittered strip at the bottom. Full details for both cards can be found in my gallery here.


Thanks for stopping by today!
