Welcome to another Fabulous Friday here at the Sisters in Stamping. This week we have decided to go back to the basics and just take a SIP. What? That's right, we are only using stamps, ink, and paper. These cards are great if you don't have a lot of time or if you are just beginning in this crazy, awesome stamping hobby and you don't have a lot of supplies just yet. We are going to share some great ideas with you that will help you see you can make a great card with minimal supplies.
First up, we have Karla's birthday card. This card is great for anyone with the colors she used. Go on over to Karla's blog for more information.
Next, we have this awesome color blocking card that gives the illusion of lots of layers from Jennifer. You will definitely want to go over to her blog for details.
Then, we have a pretty Christmas card from Debbie. Great card to make if you need to make a lot of Christmas cards. Hop on over to her blog for more information.
And finally, we have Rachel's card that uses the Swirly Bird stamp set. A great card to make a set of to use as a gift. Check out her blog for more information.
Giving thanks is not just something we do once a year at Thanksgiving, but every day. Whether we are thankful for our many blessings, to someone for an act of kindness, or of a public servant for their service, a hand-stamped project enhances the sentiment. This week we are featuring projects with thanks in our hearts.
First up is Karla with this fall inspired card. I love the varying colors on her leaf! Visit her blog here to see more about this technique.
Rachel uses a beautiful color combination in her harvest basket card. See other great color combinations by Rachel on her blog here.
And here is Debbie's card featuring a lovely tree ready for the fall weather too. Hop over to her blog here to see how she accomplished this look.
Thank you to all our followers who check in on us each week. We hope we are as much a blessing to you as you are to us! Have a Fabulous Friday and a fantastic weekend!

Happy Friday, everyone! For this Fabulous Friday, our designers were challenged with featuring water in their projects in some way. The field was open to whatever inspired them, so I am really pleased with the different directions taken.

Happy Friday everyone. Hope you had a great week and will have an even better weekend. Today we are sharing notecards with you. Everyone needs notecards. A quick card they can pull out to send a thank you or a thinking of you. Notecards are not meant to have a ton of detail and layers. They really are pretty simple. With school back in session, you can make a pack of notecards to give to teachers. They always need more quick thank you cards. Don't have children in school anymore, I'm sure you still know a teacher that would love some hand stamped cards to use. Honestly, we all can use more notecards so we can send out more greetings to the people we appreciate.
Up first is guest designer Cindy Blekas who created this fabulous set of notecards featuring the new In Colors and butterfly framelits. Be sure to visit her blog post here to see the entire set.
This set of notecards made by Rachel Yurkanin use the new Paisleys and Posies stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. Head over to her blog for more information.
Debbie Naylor created this set of notecards featuring Definitely Dahlia and the Tin of Cards stamp set all housed in this cute gift box. Be sure to hop over to her blog post here to get more information about her project.
Thanks so much for stopping by this week! We hope we've inspired you to make some note card sets for gifting - they are the perfect gift for your favorite teacher and at Christmas time. Have a great weekend!!
