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.

Never Will I Leave

Hi Everyone,
Even though I'm on a bit of a break from the Sparkle N Sprinkle team, I took some time to ink up a set that I received that I never got a chance to use before now.  It's the Religious Sympathy (383) set, so I made a card with this comforting Bible verse. 
I always love cards that have word art as the focal point, yet I rarely make them myself.  It's always good to get an opportunity to stretch your crafting comfort zone, don't you think?  I only wish I had distressed the edges of my papers to make it more shabby and vintage looking.  Lucky for me I have LOTS of this paper from Pink Paislee that I won a while back, so I can say "next time".  :)
The sentiment was stamped in brown ink and embossed with Clear Detail Powder (EP280) and I added a strip of  Carnation glitter (G1028) to the top of my lace.  If you've never tried an Anti Static pouch, I can recommend the one from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  It's got a generous size and it's packed with powder to last a long time.  Not only that, mine is a beautiful bright red color and it never gets lost in the mess on my crafting table...lol!  Full card details can always be found in my gallery here.
Thanks for stopping by and happy hump day!

Beautiful card Karin! I love the lace and your sponging. I also love cards with a sentiment as a focal point.

Monica said...

This is just so elegant, Karin and I agree, I love cards with the sentiment as the focal point. Everything about it is so well coordinated and homogeneous. Never mind about the distressing, there is some sponging there, right? And the paper some how makes it look distressed and vintage and so does the lace.
