Sister Stamps Release #20 -- Minako

Hello!  Sister Stamps is back from the holiday break with their 20th release which will be available Saturday, February 1st.  Now, have you been checking out Jenny's introductory posts about each of these new images?  If not, you should because she's got prizes!  These new images are so versatile and perfect for any occasion cards and projects. 

Here is Minako.  Sweet, isn't she?  I love her serene and peaceful pose and smile.  I had to add a little bird friend from Misaki.  They are having a conversation.  This is a little box from La-La Land Crafts that you can decorate however you like.  I wanted to create a gold box since I'm kind of fixated on that gold paper.  Isn't it amazing when you emboss it too?  I love that floral embossing on the bottom.  The corner dies are also from La-La Land Crafts.  I didn't add a sentiment to this because I didn't think it needed one.  But it would be great for Girl's Day or Valentine's or a birthday too.

Here is a side view.

Inside of the box.  I added gold to all the sides of the inner box.  You can see the reflection of the washi paper on the inside.

Please check out more previews from the Sister Stamps DT.

Before I go, I just wanted to say how stinkin' cold and windy it is here!  Typing again with gloves and socks and even wore jeans that I usually only wear when it's cold.  But at least the sun is shining today, not like yesterday when it was totally gloomy all day.  Hopefully it passes soon so we can get our normal weather back.

I'll be back tomorrow and thanks for stopping by today!

This is so pretty, Eva! Minako is so cute on this little box. I'm loving all the gold too! Love the sakura embossed gold accents on the box cover and wow, you did a fabulous job of adding the gold to the sides of the box. Super neat how the gold paper reflects the pretty washi paper to the inside!

Wow, pretty box! Love the super shiny gold! And cute scene! I shouldn't complain that it's warmer than usual here, but my allergies have been really bad these last 1-2 months! Yeah, bundle up! We're a little cheap about the heat and wear a lot of layers!

Eva, I never would have guessed that you added the gold paper to the box - it's perfect! It looks like you had bought a gold box.
Such a cute project ... love the pretty pink paper that you used, too. Thanks for sharing!

Sure love the color of Minako's hair and nice highlights. This would make a really nice gift and all the gold adds a really classy touch.
