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.

For Someone Special

Hi Everyone,

The snow is flying here in Ohio, so I hunkered down and did some stamping over the weekend.  I decided to take some time and play around with the new Ornate Corner Tile stamp and create a background for today's card share.

In this example I stamped the larger image all in a row, coming back and stamping the smaller image in between, and adding a bit of yellow coloring to the bottom of the large ornate design.

I wanted to make sure the background was the star of the card, so I only added the Single Rose which I colored with Copic markers and adding some matching die cut layers.  I finished it by stamping the beginning portion of the Special Friend Birthday Greeting, so it's ready to sent off for any number of occasions.

And, here is my bonus card :)  I pulled out my die that creates a flip card, because I thought the new Hugs 4 in 1 Wording stamp was perfect for this inside out design.  I used the Ornate Corner Tile stamp again, and kept it clean and simple, only stamping it in the corners this time. 

Here is the card lying flat.

 Thanks for stopping by!
