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.

Fall Apples

Hi Everyone,
One of my favorite things about fall is definately the apples.  I love to get them from the orchard and make a pie or two.  One year my friend taught me how to can, and we put up more than a dozen jars of homemade applesauce.  It was that time spent in the kitchen at her home that inspired my card today.
I colored up my stamped Apple Trio image from DRS Designs with my Copic markers and cut it out with my Spellbinders dies.  I decided to use that same image for my background as well, so out came some of my Martha Stewart white embossing powder.  I think using that same silhouette image along the bottom of the card looks really cool.
The new Checkered Background stamp looks just like a tablecloth, so I thought it added to the whole  kitchen-y vibe of the card. A punched border, some over sized brads and the Happy Fall Y'all finished it off. 
To check out the rest of the newest stamps, just click here :) 
 Have a great day!

What a scumptious card Karin - the apples look so real. The checkered background is just like a country kitchen! Super job. A+

Love it! Great idea to make a border with the same image and that checkered background "tablecloth" is perfect.
