Make it Masculine

With graduation season and Father's Day approaching, we may find the need to create some gifts for the men in our lives.  This week, the SIS designers are focusing on masculine gifts.  
These ideas are sure to inspire!

Guest designer Cindy Blekas gets us started with her Father's Day card.  This would be a great way to present a gift card to this special guy's favorite store or restaurant.  Check out Cindy's blog here for the specs on her card.

Next up is Jennifer Rawlings's drink combination kit.  You could easily slip a gift card behind the soda for a simple but fun gift. Get the details on this project on Jennifer's blog here.  

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  
We are looking forward to seeing you again for our next Fabulous Friday!

Getting Ready for Easter

As winter melts away and cherry blossoms begin to bloom, we swiftly head towards Easter weekend.  To help us prepare, the Sisters In Stamping designers have created the following Easter projects to inspire you in your own creations.

First up is Karla Anders with her Easter cross featuring the Hold on to Hope bundle.  To see this and other Work of the Heart, check out Karla's blog here.  

This beautiful Tranquil Tulips card was submitted by the ever-talented Debbie Naylor.  I think the garden she has created here is perfectly lovely!  Hop over to her blog here for all the details.  

Finally, here is my card.  I also used the Hold on to Hope bundle.  I decided to keep things simple and not stamp any words to the front - I thought the cross was enough of a sentiment.  Take a trip to my blog here for more information.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  We hope you all have a very blessed weekend!

Technique Challenge: Faux Tile

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday! 
This week I wanted to try something a little bit different and challenged the designers to a fun stamping technique - Faux Tile.  The idea here is to create a background or focal point that looks like decorated tile.  Maybe something you would see in a fancy kitchen or home and garden magazine.

First up for this challenge is Debbie Naylor's Thoughts & Prayers card.  I love her color combinations - very spring inspired!  Hop over to Debbie's blog here to see just how this project came together.

For my card, I opted to create a glossy tile look.  This is one of those cards that didn't pan out exactly like I planned in the beginning, but I'm very happy with the results!  Be sure to join me on my blog here for the additional details and pictures.

Thank you so much for joining us today.  We look forward to another visit with you next week!  Be sure to bring a friend along too!
