Sister Stamps Release #22 - Wedding

Today I'm featuring Sister Stamps' new Wedding image and I love the details of this stamp! Even with all the details, it was easy to color because I kept most of the bride white. I used one of my favorite washi papers as the background along with some matte gold cardstock. The "love" sentiment is a laser cut from Island Scrapbooking. 
The new stamps are available tomorrow, April 15 so check out the official Sister Stamps blog to find out where you can purchase them.

Sister Stamps Release #22 - Graduate

It's that time of the month again and Sister Stamps has some special images just for you! Graduation is just around the corner so today, I'm featuring the graduate! I love this little one who represents our culture and tradition of lei giving here in Hawaii. I remember my high school graduation and the mountain of leis I received just like this image. They were piled so high, you could barely see my face among all the beautiful flowers!
I created a modified lei to give kids for preschool or elementary school graduations. (My son was sleeping when I took this photo so my husband was my model).  I took a plastic luggage tag holder and made a tag using this image. I slipped the colored image into the plastic sleeve and got a lanyard with both a clip and cording.  I attached the lanyard to the tag with the snap closure and attached a  snack to the lei using the clip. I used taro chips here but you could use any snack size packaged goodie. The cording makes this gift into a lei and this project can be done pretty quickly and inexpensively!
Here's a close-up of the adorable graduate!

Be sure to check out the others and their great projects and I'll be back tomorrow with more!
