Fabulous Sketch Challenge

Welcome back to another Fabulous Friday!

Today the designers were given a sketch challenge.  These are always a lot of fun because everyone has a different interpretation of a particular layout.
  
Here is the original sketch - SIS #1

I love designers who can see the variations in a project.  This type of vision makes such an impact!  But that doesn't diminish the beauty in the other creations which are closer to the original sketch.  All of our designers did such a great job - lets check out their fabulous cards!



First up is guest designer, Cindy Blekas with a tropical take on this challenge.  She was able to see beyond the specific shapes to get more out of this sketch.  Get all of her thoughts on this project from Cindy's blog here.



Debbie Naylor used the Beautiful Day stamp set as the focal point of her project.  I love her color choices too!  Hop over to her blog here to get all her details.



Next up  is my Halloween card featuring the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  The designs from the Wood Textures dsp stack always makes for a great background.  Visit my blog here to learn more about this project.



Karla Anders does a little flip on her card design, but the original sketch is definitely still there.  And her color combination is stunning!  Be sure to check it out by visiting her blog here.


Thank you to our friends and visitors stopping in today.  We would love for you to try out this sketch for yourself.  If you do, please send us a picture or link so we can check it out too!
Have a fabulous weekend, and for those impacted by Hurricane Florence,
we pray for safety for you all.

A Little Heat in August; Heat Embossing That Is

 Hello there,

Thanks for stopping in today to visit the Sisters in Stamping.  This week we are sharing with you projects that are heat embossing. You know stamp in versamark, add powder to the top and then heat set to make it nice and shiny?  Heat embossing is always a wow and can make projects look so elegant.


First up,we have Cindy Blekas' card. Who wouldn't love a latte card? This would even be good to add a nice little gift card too. Visit Cindy's blog for more information.


Then we have a card that uses a heat emboss technique from Rachel Yurkanin. If you want to know how to do it, you will need to visit her blog for details.


Jennifer Rawlings decided to take on two different embossing methods - heat embossing and additional texture by applying embossing paste with a stencil.  Check out her blog to learn more!


Thanks for stopping. We hope you are inspired to get out your heat tool and embossing powder to have some creative fun time.

Heading Back to School

Here we go...starting another school year!  
Backpacks and lunchboxes need to be filled with encouraging words throughout the year, but especially those first few days to make sure everyone stays focused and headed in the right direction.  And this isn't just necessary for the kids - no way!  Parents, teachers, administrators, aids, etc. all need a little encouragement!  Today the SIS designers are sharing projects they like to share at the beginning of the school year.  Let's see what they've created!



  First up, here are three projects from our very special guest designer, Cindy Blekas.  She made these for her nieces and nephew and designed them with each of their school colors!  I love how personalized these are!  Stop over to Cindy's blog here to learn more.




  Jennifer Rawlings made this sweet flying little piggy card to encourage her little ones to soar high and reach the stars!  Take another look and get all her project details by visiting Jennifer's blog here.


Rachel Yurkanin made this card that's great to give the teacher or for the teacher to give to her students. More details are on her blog, visit it here.



  Debbie Naylor altered a small notebook which is perfect for any student to keep track of their homework assignments.  Be sure to hop over to Debbie's blog post here to see how she created it.
