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!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
