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.

Halloween Greetings

Hi Everyone,

By using the Wooden Frame Collection stamp from DRS Designs, I was able to cram all kinds of Halloween goodness onto my card today.

The background was made using the Spooky Eyes Background stamp, along with a cut and stamped piece of angled grey cardstock, stamped using the Empty Spiderweb. I added a piece of patterned ribbon to cover the seam and attached it to the yellow base.

Here are the stamps I used to fill in the frames and make the greeting:

Cheers to candy corn all things sweet!  Thanks for stopping by...

Fall Friends

Hi Everyone,

I have a fall friendship card that's full of autumn colors to share on the blog today.

I began making my background using brown ink and the Open Leaf stamp from DRS Designs.  Knowing that I wanted to add it to a yellow base, I stamped over the leaves using the Splatter Background stamp.  I did three stamping passes using 3 yellow and rust colored inks.

I die cut some sticker paper, covered that in brown glitter and glued it to the corner, adding a small gem to dot the i.

It seemed a little too plain for me, so I used the rock and roll technique (Ink up stamp using a light color, then roll the edges of the same stamp in a darker ink.) when stamping out a few 
Medium Silhouette Leaves.  I then fussy cut them and attached them to my card with some foam taped for added dimension.

Thanks for visiting!

Turkey Time

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to move on to making some fall themed cards, and I ended up going all in with this card, skipping right past early fall and Halloween, heading right on to November and the Thanksgiving holiday.  

Choosing to make a fun and funny card, I used the High Tailin' Turkey and the Turkey on the Run   Greeting, stamping and coloring them both and die cutting them together.  The rust colored background was made using the Medium Silhouette Leaf stamp

After attaching the die cut and adding a punched border, it was hard to see my leaf background, so I stamped and fussy cut a leaf as a fall embellishment.

It's hard to believe that summer is winding down, but I'm looking forward to all that fall has to offer.  And DRS Designs has lots of great stamps to celebrate the upcoming season!

Happy Stamping!

Hi Everyone,

I'm still celebrating summer treats with my post this week.  Last week it was lemonade, and this week it's watermelon :) It's clean and simple, suitable for a friend or a thank you card.

I created the watermelon slice using my regular graduated oval dies, and a scalloped die for the bite.

Instead of making regular seeds, I used a heart punch to help convey my love ;) 

I stamped the greeting a few ants for embellishment along the bottom to finish it off.  

Here are links to the stamps I used from DRS Designs:
Splatter Background (It's hard to see, but I stamped the green portion of the melon)

Thanks for visiting, hope you're day is sweet!
