Thank You Cards (Sister Stamps)

Hello!  I recently made 12 Thank You cards for my daughter's Lego Robotics Team to send out to their guest speakers.  She's at a new school and is on a new team.  Hopefully they'll do okay this season.  Anyway, this is about the time that my Big Shot broke!  So I was kind of bummed cause I wouldn't be able to use any fancy die cuts.  I still have my older Spellbinders Wizard so I've been using that but it doesn't cut the intricate designs as well and it probably would work better with a metal shim which I don't have.  I did notice my Big Shot was harder to turn and would seem like it was getting stuck.  Well, one night it did get stuck.  Plates and die and cardstock and all.  My hubby had to pry it loose.  The good thing is that it's still covered by warranty so Sizzix is mailing me a new handle with instructions on how to change it out.  I hope it works!  Otherwise I may be looking for a new machine.

So I tried to make the cards simpler in design since I had to make so many.  This first bunch I used Sister Stamps.

This is one of their newest stamps called BFFs.  Aren't they super cute?  The sentiment is from PTI. 

This one is Yoshimi.  I love that these stamps are so fast to color up and so cute too!

Here's Ayako.  I had a hard time matching the colors of her kimono to the paper.  But I think I finally got it.

I'll be sharing some of my other Thank You cards next time.  Thanks for reading and have a happy Sunday!

These are totally adorable!! I love each one!

My Cuttlebug handle keeps coming off!! I have to re-screw it back on with an allen wrench every so often! Does that mean we craft too much?! lol! I really don't want to have to buy a new one, but I can't live without it!

Hello Eva~
Your cards turned out really pretty with or without no Big Shot.. I'm glad your handle is covered under warranty too - yippee! Any who back to your TU cards, love the coloring and they are just perfect, cute sentiment and I really like these images simple and not overwhelmed with so many blooms... To me it throws the focal point of the images off.... Lovely coloring.. Check mark!
