Aloha Aurora

Aloha everyone! Today is my final project with the new Sister Stamp June release. This is Aurora...
Isn't she just gorgeous? Her beautiful hair and pretty seashell crown. This time I tried to mix oranges and pink for her hair, and a iridescent color for her seashell top and matching crown. She has a couple of friends joining her in the colorful ocean water! The glittery "Aloha" cut-out is from Jenny (thanks Jenny!), and can be purchased from Island Scrapbooking. Found a couple of old flowers in the perfect colors and added a tiny seashell in the center of one.

Thank you Jenny for having me as Guest Designer for this fun, fun release! It's been a blast coloring the mermaids, and since summertime is here, I'll be making more projects with them soon! Also thanks to all of you that left me such sweet comments! It just makes this a perfect way to end this month!

Make sure you stop at Debi's blog and the Sister Stamp blog, cause there's alot more to see! Sister Stamps is also releasing another set of the Zodiac Animals! Both releases will be available tomorrow June 1st!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
have a fantastic weekend! ;D

Meet Simona...

Welcome back to another day of Sister Stamps June release preview! My post today features Simona...
I wanted this card to have a more natural look, so I chose only couple of colors to compliment the browns. The starfishes were fussy cut and layered on top of her beautiful hair. Used a star tag and turned it into a starfish charm tied with twine. The green leaf-like border is part of an old ribbon pack from Michael's Recollections, and finally added some flowers and seashells at the bottom corner.

I have to admit, Simona's hair was a challenge to color. This is the third try that you see here. First try, the markers started to make ugly streaks. Then tried to color her hair only and  paper piece it on, but NOPE, that didn't work. So finally, I decided to re-stamp and color her entirely with different hair color than the original one. I have to fix those darn markers!

Okay... if you haven't yet, stop over at Debi's blog and Sister Stamps blog to see more cute stuff! One more day tomorrow to share the last of the mermaids!

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a wonderful day! ;D

Sister Stamps Eliana

Oh my... have you seen the new Sister Stamps...

and guess what... I've been invited to be the guest designer for the newest June release!! The mermaids are just too cute and plenty of fun to color! Today, I'm featuring Eliana. She's swimming in her beautiful ocean of flowers and stopping to visit some friends. Inspired by Debi's shaker cards with sequins, I decided to finally try it! Followed her technique of using tape, but not washi tape since it was going to be covered up.  It was fun and easy to make, I'll be trying it again soon!

Please head over to Debi's blog and the Sister Stamps blog to see more of the new releases! and be sure to leave some sweet comments at the official Sister Stamps blog for some a chance to win!

Thanks for stopping by...
Be sure to come back tomorrow
for another sweet new mermaid! ;D
