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.

Picture Perfect

Hi Everyone,

The weather out my window looks very much like the one on my card.  Spring is in full swing in my little corner of the world and I'm happy to celebrate that with today's card share :)

I was working on using the new Picture Perfect Day greeting, so I chose the Country Window stamp as my focal image.  I stamped, die cut and colored it using my Copic markers. When I was done I set it aside and went to work on paper piecing the curtains.  I stamped the image again and colored only the curtains and then went over them using the Splatter Background stamp.  I then cut those out and adhered them in place.  The sentiment was cut apart and attached to the butterfly embossed background with some dimensional foam tape, and I added a tiny glitter butterfly just because I wanted to :) 

My second card today is super easy and clean and simple.  I stamped and die cut the Sincerely Sympathy Thanks sentiment, highlighting it by sponging on some yellow ink.  For the background panel I stamped the Brush Pussy Willows and added a row of matching gems below the greeting.

And to make the pussy willows soft, like the ones in real life, I dabbed on some glue and added glittery flock to them.

  Good luck!
