Stamping with my sis

Hello again. I told you I'd share what I was up to with my sister over the weekend, so, here we go. It's always more fun to stamp with another stamper, so my sister (and sometimes another friend) and I get together every so often and play with our stamps. Last weekend she came to my house (hmm...I bet she always wants to come to my house because I have a Big Shot...) and we had a GREAT time making cards and 3-D items. Here's what I made.

All SU! ingredients unless otherwise noted.

Daisy card: cardstock: WW, Brocade Blue,
ink: Summer Sun, Brocade Blue, Garden Green, other: paper snips, dimensionals, white satin ribbon (colored with summer sun marker), markers in Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie,
Stamps: Upsy Daisy

Pillow Box: Card stock: Brocade Blue,
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Old Olive,
Stamps: Branch Out, Great Friend
Other: Big Shot, Pillow Box die, 2 Way Glue Pen, glitter

Mini Pizza Box: cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke
Ink: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy
Stamps: Yummy
Other: Scallop Circle Punch, 5 Petal Punch, non-SU! pearl stickers.
You may have noticed that one flower on the daisy card is popped up. Well, I have to confess that I am NOT a detailed cutting freak! It was just one of those "opportunities for creative embellishment." LOL I got carried away with my marker and "shading" that one flower. SO...out came the stamp and I re-tamped and cut out THAT flower and "fixed" it. No fatal mistakes. LOL
Until next time, remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

Fabulous stuff, sister dear :) I am still blown away by the Upsy Daisy card and the pizza box! Gosh, not only are you an amazing stamper, you're way better at keeping your blog current! I think I'll take my inferiority complex and hit the hay! At least tomorrow is Friday Eve! :)
