Welcome back everyone!  Today is the day we've all been working up to ... the official day of Sister Stamps Release #8!  Woohoo!  Hope you've all be enjoying this special blog hop and have gotten some great ideas from the talented ladies who shared their projects with us.  I know I sure have!

For my last project, I decided to use MARIKO.  Like I said before and like what the other ladies have said as well, Mariko can be used for so many different occasions.  I've used her here on a gift card holder.  Of course you could also use it to hold money, and there's also a matching mini card inside.

The paper I used is from the Bo Bunny Serenity Collection and the sakura die cuts are also from the same collection.  The HB laser cut and mini yellow sakura were from Jenny.

The video includes a look at how the holder opens and also shows what the mini card looks like.  I cut the card base and the panel inside the card using my Spellbinders dies.  I colored Mariko with my Copics and mounted her on the circle and scalloped circle die cuts, again from Spellbinders.

That's it for me gang!  Hope you liked my projects for this very special blog hop!  I had a lot of fun creating them and I do believe my mojo has returned.  Now, head on over to Cami's blog for the last of her fabulous creations!

Congratulations again to Denise and Jenny on Sister Stamps' first birthday!  Don't forget to go to the Sister Stamps blog and check their sidebar for the retailer nearest you to pick up these cuties!  I also wanted to say thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments!  I appreciate them and you!  I'll be back with more creations so until we meet again, take care.
