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.

Patriotic

Hi Everyone,
Since it's our all American holiday tomorrow, I thought I would share a quick card I made.  It uses exactly what Sparkle N Sprinkle is famous for, GLITTER!  This celebratory day is the perfect occasion to show off some sparkle, don't you think?
I decided to make a card inspired by our nation's flag by using 1/2" Tear-iffic Tape (#SAT04) coated in Fire Engine Red (#G1007) glitter.  The sentiment was used for the "star" portion of  flag and that was stamped in Versamark (#99702) and coated in Vanilla Ice (#EP265) embossing powder, which has a great bit of sparkle to it as well.  It was then die cut and adhered to the top left corner.
 
 
 
In the end, I felt like the flag did need a few stars, so I coated some Sticker Paper (#99558) in Crystal Ice (#G1058) glitter, punched them out and added them to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating our country's birthday!
