Sister Stamps Release #19 -- Hideo & Mieko (again!)


Hello!  Welcome to another day of Sister Stamps Release #19!  These stamps will be available November 1st.  So besides mochi and money, the New Year's Day also reminds me of calendars.  And I know there are many crafters that make calendars every year.  I make quite a few too because they make great little gifts.

Again, I decided to make a boy and girl version of my project.  These are perpetual calendars that I made using some dies from CC Designs.  I did a tutorial on these HERE.  Yes, they can be a little time consuming to make cause of all those alphabet dies but so worth it in the end.  And it does move fast once you get the hang of cutting out all those letters.

This is the first one I made using Mieko.  I wanted this to look especially girly so lots of pink.  I used some gold paper that I bought from J's.  I might've taken his last 2 sheets!  Hopefully, he'll get more in stock soon.  The sentiment is from CC Designs too.

Here is a close up.  I used the cherry blossom embossing folder from Darice though I didn't even notice I glued it with the reverse side showing.  But still looks nice.

Then I decided I should make this one with Hideo.  Same layout and design just different colors.  I think I will be saving these for my boys' nihongo teachers.

I forgot to add this photo in!  Must have been distracted somehow.  But here is a close up photo of Hideo.

Please check out what these ladies have to share today too!
