I'm loving all the great projects that the design team is coming up with and hope you are, too!
For today's card, I chose to use Dixie and created a gift card holder. It might be a little early for Christmas but I recently took out my stash of holiday papers and couldn't resist! I used a PTI die that's made for stitching coin purses together. I usually make the coin purses out of felt, but tried cutting paper instead and stitched it together with embroidery thread. The opening is normally where I'd insert a zipper, but I used it to create a pocket for the gift card. Evergreen trees are stamped lightly in the background (SU Evergreen) and I used an Island Scrapbooking laser sentiment. My favorite detail is the resin-like bow on Dixie's head!
I'll be back tomorrow with one more post and be sure to check out the other designers below:

Today, my card features Hiilei. I created an underwater scene with some DP I've had in my stash for some time now. I used a Lawn Fawn "Scripty Sayings" sentiment up top and just cut above the outline of the sentiment and layered a striped paper behind it. The sentiment at the bottom is from an old Hero Arts fish set. I used some stickers for the seaweed and bubbles and added the puffer fish and starfish from a previously released Sister Stamps underwater animals set.
Hope you've enjoyed this "hot" summer release! Happy 4th birthday to Sister Stamps and thank you to Jenny for inviting me to participate from the beginning!
Be sure to check out the other design team members below and have a great 4th of July weekend!!

Happy Birthday Sister Stamps!
We're celebrating with seven stamps in this release and they'll be available on July 1.
I started out with Aulii and the sandcastle and found the perfect beach scene background paper at Island Scrapbooking. Aulii is so adorable and after coloring her, I decided to give her a little tattoo on her arm inspired by some temporary tattoos I saw on toddlers the other day. I added the smiley starfish from a previous release of sea animals to go with the starfish in Aulii's hand. The sandcastle was stamped on some sand background paper also from Island Scrapbooking and I shaded it a little and colored the flag with Copics. The sentiment is from a PTI stamp set called Flipping Out.
Check out other great projects from the rest of the Design Team and I'll be back with more tomorrow.

Welcome to the first Sister Stamps release of the year! I'm so excited to share the local Hawaii images this month which are super cute and versatile. First up is Kaleo with his ukulele. I did some layering with velum and used an old Sizzix palm tree die as the image behind the velum. I felt like Kaleo needed a pal so I added a canine sticker and the sentiment is a laser cut from Island Scrapbooking.
