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.

Piano Music

Hi Everyone,
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy time ringing in the new year.  I'm really excited to see what 2013 has in store for me on all fronts.  I'm not big on resolutions, but I have no reason to think that the next year won't be amazing :)  How's that for choosing to be optimistic on the second day of the year...lol!
There are lots of exciting things happening this year at Sparkle N Sprinkle, and I'm happy to be a part of the team. For starters, you can mark your calender for January 17th.  That's the date for the next blog hop, and it's all about fancy folds. 
I tend to get in a rut myself, only making A2 cards, so this will be inspiration for me too.
So, ready for my card share?
I used the gorgeous stamp set named Music Labels #424 for this card.  Since the Grand Piano (3481-424C) is a lovely, bold solid stamp, I thought embossing it using Black Detail (EP171) embossing powder would really show off the simple beauty of it.  I framed it by die cutting Sticker Paper and coating it in Antiquities (EP266) embossing powder and heat setting it.  The background was stamped with the Treble Swirl (3413-424E) and some washi tape and a strip of 1/2" Tear-iffic Tape (SAT04) and Midnight Gold (G1080) glitter finished it off.
As always, check out the step by step instructions here.
Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year, Karin! Love this card with its musical theme. You're right, the grand piano is so striking in the black embossing.

Happy New Year!

Your card is so elegant! I love the little extra something added by the rounded corners.

This is a sweet card, Karin! Love how you've created the cross pattern for the music on the left, and that gorgeous glitter. Great card! And yes, I'm optimistic that 2013 will be nothing short of amazing - and that everything will always have a silver lining at the very least! ((hugs))
