Woo hoo!! Who else is ready for the weekend besides me? I bet we all are right? Are you doing anything fun? Well if you you are, I hope you share. :) As for me, hopefully it will be a relaxing weekend. Maybe get some crafting in that's not DT related or watch a movie or paint a wall or four. (hehehe)
Anyhoos, enough rambling!! Today for my Fun Friday share I used a new image from... Sister Stamps, release #5!! Yay! As you know I recently received some happy mail this week, I needed another Thank you card for a guy so it was easy to choose to ink up cutie Keitaro. He's one of 3 new valentine images from Sister Stamps and he is adorable. (For more info on the new release and where you can buy the stamps head on over to the Sister Stamp blog. ATS is now carrying them as well).
|Keitaro card with origami heart & samurai hat|
Jenny's sister really did a terrific job with Keitaro. The details are awesome! I love his samurai hat and the origami heart. I had to try to make them myself! I did go online and searched for links to make origami hearts and a samurai hat. I love origami. So many cool things you can make with one sheet of paper. I found a website with free downloads of instructions. If you're in the mood to paper fold click HERE to be directly linked to Origami That's Fun & Easy. I used mulberry paper to make the heart and samurai hat. Here are a few pictures of the card...
|Sentiments read: Domo ARIGATO Gozaimasu! Thank you very much!|
I love the chain of hearts too! Can you see I spelled out ARIGATO inside the hearts? It was a really nice surprise that I could fit that inside. Me likey! Now I wish I knew how to make one of those heart chains. I guess I could Google or You Tube it and maybe I will once I have more time. Used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the backdrop and some origami paper to accent behind Keitaro. For my layout I used the Desconstructed Sketch #35:
Here is a close up of the bottom part of the card featuring the sentiment. I cut out a paper heart and added some blue ribbon to mimic the top of Keitaro's hat. Hand wrote the sentiment on kraft cs and mounted it on to some of the same origami paper.

I used pinking shears for that!
I love how it looks like he's on a banner. I cut a small strip of kraft and adhered it to the bottom to break up it up so as to follow the sketch. I had a hard time with his hair. I know it's only a small space to color, but my E29 was giving me problems and I really didn't want to color all over again. No biggie for me so I left it. See the zig-zags on the bottom? I used pinking shears for that! Hey you can find lot of craft tools if you just use your imagination. :)
Alrighty, time for me to sign off. I hope you enjoyed my share for today. Have a terrific Friday and Domo Arigato Gozaimasu for stopping by!! (hahaha!)
