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.

Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Here's a Christmas card that was easy to pull off,  due to using the Wooden Frame Collection stamp from DRS Designs!  After stamping and coloring up the frames, it was really fun looking through my stamps and choosing a group to fit inside.  I settled on the following ones:

After using my stamp-a-ma-jig to help line things up, I colored in the images and added some glitter glue to the snow/fuzzy parts on them.

I attached it to a snowflake embossed base and added a few mini snowflakes along the bottom to finish it off.

Thanks for visiting the blog today!

We Thank You Lord

Hi Everyone,

I have one last fall card to share with you today.  Thanksgiving is next week...are you ready?  I've taken the bold step by ordering a complete heat & eat meal for the first time from a local grocer. There will only be 4 of us around the holiday table, so I thought I'd give myself a break this year, and not cook :)  I'm a little nervous, but I'm telling myself not to compare anything to the usual side dishes I make, that have been passed down to me from my mom.  BUT, I'm not going to lie... I'm really going to miss not eating the southern peach yam bake...sniff sniff… Oh well, there's always  Christmas dinner, right? 

For my card, I began by using the Thank You Lord Greeting and die cutting it.  My laziness for cooking has bled into my cardmaking, in that, I wanted to use the Woven Plaid to make a background, but not a bunch of different ink colors.  So, I chose to use an orange base and just some brown ink.  Two colors, but only one ink color required!  It looks like it would make a great Thanksgiving tablecloth to me. 

For my fall embellishments I stamped the Fall Leaf with Acorn three times and fussy cut them out, coloring them up with my Copic markers.  I only needed two leaves, but used all three of the little acorns, and a brad from my stash finished it off. 

All of these stamps can be found at DRS Designs...Happy Fall and Happy Thanksgiving one and all!

Joy to You

Hi Everyone,

Snowman cards are great for the whole winter season.  They work for that non religious Christmas person, but also great for cardmaking into the new year too.  This Heart Swag Snowman is one of my all time favorite stamps. He's adorable! 

I stamped, colored and fussy cut him, adding some glitter to his hat.  I made the background using the Snow Background stamp, embellishing the little dots with glitter glue as well.   

The half doily was on my craft table, left over from a failed card attempt, so I managed to work it in on this one.  I feel like it was as success :)  The sentiment is the inside portion of the 
Joy To You Christmas Greeting that was punched out and I added a few matching gems for some more sparkle.

Love and Joy to you and yours! 

Have a great day!

Cheerful Smiles

Hi Everyone,

This is a random card share in the midst of everyone's holiday cards, but I had a friend who had some out patient surgery last week, and I wanted to make a card to cheer him up.  

I knew I wanted to use the Cheerful Smiles Get Well Greeting, so I decided to make some smiling Bandages to go along with it.  

I masked off the middle of the band-aid, so that I could make a face with googly eyes and a hand drawn mouth.  I colored and fussy cut them, attaching them and the greeting with some dimensional tape.

The simple background was made using the Starry Background and Easy Dot Background.

Here's the simple inside, using the Feel Better Soon from the bottom portion of the greeting on the front and the Bandage stamp again.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
