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.

Hi Everyone,

I can hardly believe that it's already June,  and we're moving closer to summer time everyday!  While we are still enjoying the last bits of spring, I thought I would share a card made with the gorgeous stamp set aptly named, Spring Floral (490) by Beccy Muir, available at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

This lovely magnolia stamp needed just a bit of shading on the petals.  After coloring in the center and the leaves, I used Copic marker in Cool Grey (C3) to outline it.  This really makes the image pop!  Also, I had to add a bit of bling to it, so I used my Dimensional Glue (539) and a bit of Evening Glow glitter. (G1086)
I used a a couple of strips of 1/4" Tear-iffic Tape (SAT01) on the center strip and coated it in Citron Green glitter (G1087) for some added sparkle.  I figured as long as I had my roll of tape out, using it to hold my card together, why not use it for embellishment too :)
Thanks for visiting the blog today...Enjoy!
