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.

Make Your Own Music

Hi Everyone,
 
I thought I would change things up a bit and share a non Christmas card with you today.  I was fortunate to work with a gorgeous set of stamps named Music Labels (424) from Sparkle N Sprinkle recently.
 
I stamped the butterflies once, and then again to give them a shadowy effect and I added a strip of 1/2" Tear-iffic Tape (SAT04) to the base and coated that in Black Ice (G1020) glitter.  It was then that I went ahead and dry embossed that piece of card stock.  I fell in love with the look.
 
 
The label was embossed and fussy cut and the sentiment was die cut and added with a pop dot for some dimension.  Lastly I had to add some rhinestone flourishes for a bit more elegance. 
 
For step by step instructions, visit my gallery here.
 
Thanks for visiting today!

Love everything about it.

The shadow effect is awesome and the "bling" just makes it feel like music is bouncing off the card.

This is just beautiful, Karin! Love the embossed panel with the twice-stamped butterflies, and of course the music label.
