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.

Love You More

Hi Everyone,

Well, it's the first full week of having things back to normal after the holidays for me and I have to admit, I'm grateful for the simple routine. Part of that routine is stamping cards, so I had great time working with the new stamp designs released this past Saturday.

I made my background using the Girl Swirl stamp and I colored up the new Heart Stem Rose using my Copic markers and added some sparkle by way of Stickles. What says Valentine's Day better than hearts and flowers, right? So, I stamped the Dotted Heart on pink card stock and fussy cut only the hearts out. To make them look like the conversation heart candies that are so popular, I stamped one word of the Love You More greeting on each heart and added them to the card base with pop dots.

The card seemed pretty feminine to me, so I decided some lace was in order. That, along with a bit of printed ribbon added a great bit of texture to the finished card.

If you didn't have time over the holidays to play, we have another day or so to go in our
"Torn Paper" challenge on the DRS Designs blog. I hope you can play along!

Have you made any Valentine's Day cards yet? No time like the present to get started and all of the new releases can be found right here!

Have a great day!
