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.

Welcome Spring

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of cards to share that use some of the newer stamps released at DRS Designs.  This card was made with my niece in mind.  We're so happy because she just bought her first house, and I thought a welcome to home ownership card would be perfect to showcase the new Welcome Oval stamp. I stamped it and sprayed it with adhesive, covering the whole thing in iridescent glitter.  When it was dry, I added a black mat. 

I dry embossed the top portion using a Darice folder that had the words "hello", and along the bottom I stamped the Mushroom House, coloring just one to match the green card base.  I then added a ribbon and attached the oval.

This card was made simply to celebrate Easter!  I used springtime colors of pink and green, and I stamped the pink background and white panel using one of my favorite flowers the
Dogwood Branch.  I wanted to feature the Decorated with Love Easter Greeting, so I stamped it and added some sponging when the die was still in place.  I liked the design on the above welcome stamp, so I stamped it, cut it in half and placed it behind the greeting.  

I added the adorable Vincent Van Bunny that I colored and fussy cut.  

Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
