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.

Jumping into Leaves

Hi Everyone,
 
Today's card share was made for the current "Leaves" challenge at the DRS Designs blog.  I just love this adorable joyful image!  I use the Jumping into Autumn stamp and colored it with my Copics. However, after making it and adding the embossed die cut leaf, I decided to add some more dimension to the card by popping up that that little cutie pie.  I stamped and colored him a second time, fussy cut him, and up on some pop dots he went. Just what this card needed.
 
 
I just love cards with texture this time of year, so the ribbon is crushed velvet and I added a button threaded with twine.
 
While not nearly as fun as jumping in leaves, we did ride the Cuyahoga Valley National Railroad this weekend out to the Peddler's Festival in Peninsula and I nabbed this photo with my phone :)  Too much sky, not enough foliage, but still a great fall day.
 
 
Hope you are enjoying the autumn colors today!
 
Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Ink: Memento, Die: Provocraft, Ribbon, button and twine from my supplies.

Super sweet card, Karin. Wouldn't it look great on a scrapbook page, too? I like the crumpled velvety ribbon. Your cards always look so fun!

What a fun card Karin! That's what we're busy doing here in New Jersey! As soon as you get rid off one pile - turn around and there will be another.
