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.

Blog Hop Time!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog hop, where we are featuring cards with "Fancy Folds". 



 If you came here by way of Anne you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning, so you don't miss out on anything.  As usual, leave a comment for each person and you will be in the running for prizes galore :)

My first card has a fold so fancy, it's not even a fold..lol!  It's called a Hinge Top card and I made it using the set Sew Fabulous (#461).



This photo shows how the top is attached with a brad and just swings up to reveal the empty spot underneath for your personal sentiment.




And a close up shot of the Silver Detail Embossing Powder (#EP257) and the Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter (#GM2005) that I used on the mat.


My second card share uses the new set Abby & Walter's Birthday (#476), and I made a Z-Fold card with an adorable sentiment I just love.  It doesn't even have to be a birthday card...Who couldn't use a little happiness on a bad day, right?



As always, you can find all the card details by visiting my Sparkle N Sprinkle card gallery.
 
Your next stop on the hop is April She always has a great technique to share and here's the list of participants, just in case there is a hitch along the way ;)
 
Good luck and Happy Hopping!

Hi, Karin! Your cards are so sweet! Love the EP on the scissors, and the buttons - of course the paper colors are magnificent (as always), and the hinge element is brand new to me! Too cute!
