Sister Stamps 1st Anniversary Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi fellow crafters!  Hope your week is going well.  Welcome to Sister Stamps Birthday Blog Hop as we celebrate their 1st Anniversary!  Isn't it amazing how time flies and before we knew it, Sister Stamps is One Year Old, and continues to offer the cutest Asian stamp images.  I am so grateful and honored to have been invited by Jenny to join her uber talented group of gals for this special occasion.  The Birthday Blog Hop will run for four days as we introduce the new images that will be available on July 1, 2012, and starts at Sister Stamps.  If you've come here from Linda's blog (Simple and Sassy Creations) you are in the right place.  If not, start back at Sister Stamps so you don't miss any of the beautiful creations. So, without further ado, today I'd like to share with you two cards I made featuring "Miyoko" and here she is:
This card is 6"x6" so I could fit the banner at the top.  I stamped Miyoko with Memento Tuxedo Black on cryogen white CS and colored her with Copics.  I added some white dots with a white Sharpie Poster Paint marker to pick up the dots on the DP (My Little Show Box-"Aiko-Blue Sky").  The banner was die-cut using a MFT "Banner Day" die, the white flower stems die-cut using a Memory Box "Fresh Daisies" die for Simon Say Stamp, and the border strip was punched using a MS "Cherry Blossom Trim" punch.
I wasn't happy with the following card easel card I made, but thought I'd share it anyway:
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.  Remember, this Birthday Blog Hop runs for four days and prizes will be given to some lucky winners so please hop along with us!
Now head on over to Jenny's blog to see her gorgeous creation!
Warm Aloha Hugs,

LOVE Miyoko...and love the adorable cards you created using her! As always, you do such an amazing job coloring up your images, and what a fun idea to even decorate Miyoko's kimono!
