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.

Peppermint Bear

Hi Everyone,
I’m proudly showing off the sweet digi image named Peppermint Christmas Bear today. Isn’t he adorable? Michelle Perkett has a whole line of stamps and digis at Sparkle N Sprinkle, so if you haven’t had a chance to see them yet, I encourage you to take a peek at the shop.
For this card I began by making some glittery paper using Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter (GM2000) and some of my must have Sticker Paper (99558). I printed out my digi on card stock, then using some blue painters tape, I attached a piece of the glitter paper right over the bear. Then I sent it through my printer again and voila! A sparkly bear! After I colored his scarf, nose and paws, (Yes, you can color right over the glitter! Very cool indeed) I fussy cut him and attached him with some pop dots. See how cute?
I had some of the paper I made left over, so I added a couple of punched photo corners to the top, and a strip of Collegiate Garnet(G1114) glitter to match my holiday paper. Feel free to check out my gallery for all the step by step instructions.
Here’s wishing you a cheerful December!

Karin, this is such an adorable card - and I still hope to figure out how you put the glitter thru your printer! Somehow your "pink" Christmas cards always look so cute - like Christmas is supposed to be pink, after all. Darling card!

This bear is darling! I love the sparkle you added to him. The non-traditional colors are so fun.
