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.

I Melt for You!

Hi Everyone,
What a week it's been since I last posted...Whew! It was exhausting and totally fun :) Before I share, let me show off a card that includes a couple of the latest stamps from DRS Designs. I think you'll agree, they are so super cute :)
The base was stamped with the Marshmallow Background, in a white pigment ink on a dark brown background. After stamping the Toasting Marshmallow and coloring it with my Copic markers, I die cut it with my Nestabilities Labels One die and added a bit of paper piercing around the layer for some interest.
The Mini Marshmallow was stamped multiple times to create that border piece and the I Melt for You greeting was layered in colors to match the card itself. Both of these stamps can be found in the new releases here. Looking back at this picture, I wish I had added a bit of glitter to the flames. How could I have let that go? Me and my love of bling...What was I thinking? Thank goodness the cuteness of the stamps make up for the lack there of :)
I mentioned in my post last week that DRS Designs was coming to a stamp show in the greater Cleveland area, and a couple of my design team mates and I were fortunate to be able to attend!
What a thrill it was to meet these talented ladies in person, as well as have the privilege of doing a demo with Jennifer our DT Coordinator at the DRS Designs booth.
Here is a photo of the booth (well, most of it anyway) and our demo/make n take area in the front.

It was so, so cool seeing my design team mates cards in person on that back wall. I know we all post them to the blogs, but there is nothing like seeing them up close. Wowza! So impressive!
And a close up of the Argyle Background and Argyle Diamond stamps that were our demo:
I love these stamps! I've used them so many times this year...I'm sure you recognize them from many of my recent cards.

And lastly, here is a photo of us. I think I promised Sue that I wouldn't put it on Facebook, but I don't remember promising not to put it on the blog...Ack! Please forgive me Sue ;) 

I was lucky enough to have Shelia and Jennifer stay in the area Saturday, so after the show they both came to my house for a night of food and stamping. I was in heaven! So. Much. FUN! It was midnight before we knew it! I only wish we all lived around the corner from each other, so that this could happen on a regular basis :) Next time it needs to be all of us DT ladies...Hear that, Julie, Pam and Janett??! You were missed :)
Thanks so much for peeking in on the blog today and remember to join us for our challenges every Thursday at the DRS Designs blog!
Have a good one :)
