I made another card using the Sister Stamps Mei Lin. I like how this color combination turned out. I used the background paper for my color inspiration, but added the yellow in to make it a little brighter. And of course I had to add some shimmer paint for some sparkles.
My mom needed some sympathy cards to add to her stock, so I spent the afternoon make some. These are not my favorite kind of cards to make, so it took a while. I got stuck on using Wild Wasabi, but they all came out pretty different.
I got some new Asian paper and knew I had to make a card with one of the Sister Stamps. So here is Kiyomi with her butterfly. I think she is my favorite, but it's hard to choose between all of them. I added some shimmer to the butterfly and parts of her kimono.
I made a bunch of these cards using hostess stamp sets. The flower is a new hostess set called Posy Punch and the sentiment is from the Summer Mini called Swirls & Curls Verses. Here's a closeup of the flower. I punched it using the Fancy Flower Punch and the leaves are the Little Leaves sizzlit die.
The edge was punched using the Scallop Trim Border.
This is Mei Li by Sister Stamps. I think she is so cute! And I found the lantern paper that I thought went perfectly with the stamp. Don't forget to check out the Sister Stamps blog (http://sisterstamps.blogspot.com/)!
I got my new Sister Stamps in the mail the other day and I finally got a chance to ink them up. This is my first card using Mei Lin. I'm not the best at coloring, but I think she came out cute anyway. I added some pearl bling to the pinwheel and flower.
My parents were on a cruise over Father's Day and my Dad's birthday, so I had an extra week to work on my cards for my Dad. I decided to use the new Petite Pennants punch for his birthday card, along with one of the new Hostess Sets for the sentiment. For his Father's Day card, I used the trusty Owl stamp from the retired SAB set and matching punch. The texture plate I used for the background is now retired too.
