Welcome to our first introductory post for Release #9... Wow... 9 releases already! Still can't believe how time has flown. It all started with two sisters who wanted to share our images with you... Before we even came up with our name, I thought it would be great if we had a logo. So I asked my sis to design one that we could use on our products that had two sisters in kimonos. I then came up with the name "Sister Stamps" since that's basically how our company came to be. So she ran with the idea and came up with our logo... Denise is on the left (the artist) and I'm on the right (stamper).
Believe it or not, we got a few requests to make our logo into a stamp... Or something along that lines with two girls. So I added that to the list of suggestions to my sis and she came up with our next image- BFF's! Really, this image can be used for many types of relationships like sisters, best friends, cousins and so forth. I chose the name BFF's since every girl has a BFF right? To me, it will always be me and my sister. :)
On to the card... Aunty Jan saved the day again. Just as I was starting to think about samples to post for my introductions, a package arrived in the mail with two cards for this release! Thanks Aunty! Here Aunty used our BFF's stamp and framed it in a sakura die cut (Lifestyle Crafts). The smaller sakuras are cut from pink felt and she added some yellow stickles for the middles. The sentiment was by My Sentiment's Exactly and was stamped on vellum.
This card actually reminds me of me and my cousin- Aunty Jan's daughter (aka Yoshimi). We were very close as kids since my sister used to watch us every Saturday. My favorite color used to be yellow and her's pink. I guess the color combo makes me think of when we were young. Now my favorite color is far from yellow, but yellow brings back a lot of memories for me of my youth.
Thanks again Aunty for saving the day!
