Last night I finished up a set of cards using Sister Stamps new release. This has got to be my favorite release of theirs. So much so that I went to buy them at Cute Stuff the day they were released only to find that the one I really love was already sold out! What the heck? I guess everyone else loves it too! But I did complete the set the next day when I found it at J's Knicknacks. At least I got to spread the love to a couple of my favorite crafty stores!
I went very clean and simple on these since time is a factor these days. I have to say I love them all so much.
This is Mariko. She's so cute! I colored these with my Copics on PTI's white cardstock. I had forgotten how nice it is to color on this. I have been using the X-press it blending paper for a while now which is nice too but different. The little tag die and sentiment is also from PTI. I tied on a silky crushed ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and then used some burlap twine (also from Ribbon Carousel) to tie the tag onto the ribbon.
A little close up. These stamps always remind me of Cheryl's daughter!
This is Takeo. Also colored with Copics. Tied on some burlap twine with a star tag and sentiment. And all the sentiments were heat embossed in red.
I think he looks so fun!
This is Miyoko and she is my favorite!! See, so cute and sassy! Same process for this card as well.
She has some stickles added to her cupcake and flower.
Sorry, kind of lengthy post. That is what happens when I don't blog regularly. And I need to still mention what challenges I'm entering these into! First is to MarkerPop Challenge #1 -- Hair/Fur coloring (entering Miyoko card, I wasn't sure if there is some limit). They were previously iCopic and took a break from challenges but now they're back!
The second is to All That Scraps -- Anything Goes.
And lastly, I wanted to say a special thank you to Handmade Cuties for sending me a cute little beaded charm! She makes the cutest charms and they are so bright and fun in person! Please check out her Etsy store HERE.
Okay, I think I'm done. Thanks for reading!
