Friendships Matter

Welcome back, Friends!  We show our friends that we care in many ways: having an available shoulder, hugs, donuts, and of course cards and gifts.  This week we wanted to celebrate friendships and inspire you to create a project for these special loved-ones in your life. 

Guest designer Cindy Blekas shares this card featuring unlikely friends.  These super cute pals are from the Bella and Friends stamp set.  Learn more by visiting Cindy's blog here.

Karla Anders created a cheerful "Thanks for being a great friend" card using flowers from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Avant Garden.  See Karla's work on her blog here.

Next up is Debbie Naylor with a beautiful sympathy card for a friend.  She used the Birthday Blooms stamp set with rich colors.  Hop over to her blog here for all the details.

Finally we have Jennifer Rawlings' card with layers of lace from the Delicate Details stamp set; available for a limited time during the Sale-a-Bration promotion.  Find out how to make this yourself by heading over to her blog here.

 Thanks so much for taking time to visit!  See you again next week, and we hope you all have a safe and relaxing weekend!!

It's All About the Backgrounds

Thanks for stopping by here at Sisters in Stamping today.  We are sharing some great cards that use background stamps today. One stamp does one big job. Background stamps are great for adding that little something that may be missing from your card, especially if you do not want to add another layer of cardstock that may make your card just a bit too bulky.

Here is Debbie Naylor's card. She actually used two different background stamps on her card. Be sure to visit her blog for more details. 

This is Rachel Yurkanin's card. She used the large thank you background stamp to make her thank you notecard. Head over to her blog for details. 

Here Cindy Blekas, our guest designer, used the eggs from Basket Bunch to make her own background. Check out her blog for more details.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bird is the Word!

Greetings to all of our Fabulous Friday junkies!  This week the Sisters are sharing BIRD themed projects.  Birds are quite a versatile theme and can be used for any season, holiday, or occasion.  Just skim through the Stampin' Up! annual catalog and you will easily find bird stamps, paper, punches, etc.  Let's see what ideas our designers bring!

Our guest designer, Cindy, sings a little hello with this little birdie.  Get all the details on this clean and simple bird card by visiting Cindy's blog here.
Jennifer went the masculine route with a watercolor technique on this rustic mallard.
Fly by her blog here to get all the details.

Going a bit flirty, Rachel designed a thank you card featuring this flamingo from the Pop of Paradise stamp set.  Check out her blog here for more inspiration.

Karla used one of the 2017 Sale-a-Bration stamp sets for her bird card. Here is a link to her blog to read her post today.

Debbie went for the whimiscal approach with her thank you card featuring the cute parrot from the Bella and Friends stamp set.  Hop over to her blog post here for all the details.

That Special Valentine

The Sisters blog post is full of mushy love and kisses this week! We are showing off our handmade Valentines for that special person in your life. Did you know that Valentine Cards were originally handmade? The tradition of giving cards started in the 1700's, it wasn't until 200 years later that cards started being mass produced. Well, you know how we feel about that here at the Sisters in Stamping-- No mass produced cards for us!
 Debbie is up first with her lovely card. I really like the embossed hearts in the background, here is a link to her post today.

 Next is Rachel, she used a combination of new stamps sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog. You'll have to scoot on over to her blog to find out.

Here is Karla's card for this week, she also used a new set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. If you go to her post you can read all about it.
 Jennifer decided to go the masculine route, using the Pun Intended hostess stamp set.  Check out all the details on her blog here.
Last (but not least) is our guest designer for this week Cindy. Love and hearts, the best way to celebrate! Click here to visit her site.

Send someone you love a old fashioned handmade Valentine this week! 
That is it for us this week, thank-you for visiting,
the Sisters in Stamping,
Debbie, Karla, Rachel, Jennifer and Cindy
