Sister Stamps Release #19 -- Hideo & Mieko

***********************************************************************************


Hello!  Welcome to Sister Stamps Release #19!  Have you been checking out the introductory posts by Jenny on the Sister Stamps blog?  Don't miss the chance to win one of these cuties.  Aren't these images just perfect for New Year's?

I made some New Year's money gift holders.  I saw this idea of using MFT's vertical gift card holder onto some layered tags and thought it was so fun.  Problem -- no layering tag dies.  So I used my Perfect Layers rulers to make the tags around the gift card holder.  I think it was 3/8th inch around the 3 sides and then 1 inch on the top.  Then just cut the top corners.  Then I added another thin layer around that tag. 

I made this one with Hideo first.  Not very Asian-y colors or papers.

Here's a close up.  Love his mochi on a stick.  Our kids love mochi!  Totally in the mood for some now.

After making Hideo, I wanted a girl version so I used Mieko too.  This one is more Asian with washi paper.  

Here's a close up of this cutie.  Love her little cheeks! 

You can see more of this release by checking out the talented ladies below!  Be sure to say hello to this month's guest designer too!

These are so cute! I love the colors and your coloring. What a cute idea to add in the sentiment on a smaller tag!

Great way to showcase the new stamps. I think I might have opted not to buy any more New Year stamps, but now I know I HAVE to purchase the newest in the SS line. Really love the tags... your coloring and color choices are perfect. They'd look great on a cello bag filled with MOCHI!

Such cute tags/money holders. The way you colored the hair is a nice alternative to the more commonly used black!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
