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.

Happy Heart Day

Hi Everyone,

Sparkle N Sprinkle just released some new stamps this week and I was fortunate enough to be able to play with the new stamp set named Love Fairy (#483). 

I embossed a sheet of Mirror Red cardstock ( #99525) and wrapped it in a bit of crochet lace. I stamped the fairy in Versamark (#99702) and embossed her using Red Apple Embossing Powder (#EP276)

After I die cut her, I used a craft knife and cut a slit in her hand so that I could fit the little Valentine in by its corner. I finished off by embellishing it with some flowers which I coated in Dimensional Glue (#539) and Waterscape Glitter (#G1008). If you want further details, stop by my Sparkle N Sprinkle card gallery.

Did you know that Sparkle N Sprinkle hosts a monthly challenge?  For January, it's a sketch challenge.  Here it is:

This is soooo pretty! I really like how you left her uncolored. She looks so dreamy in this color and with the sponging.
