For all my friends from Hawaii, Aloha, this one is for you!
Check out this fun shark from the latest release, combined with a new cool background, giving this card the perfect tropical island vibe. I can almost hear the pahu drums. What is a pahu drum?
Creating this Card:
For the making of this card, I stamped the background using the new Tropical Floral rubber stamp. The colors of ink I used were Memento Lady Bug, Dandelion, and Tangelo ink pads. I blended the colors directly on the rubber stamp using my handy-dandy Picket Fence Blending Brushes, which make it so easy to do. I started with the lightest color first as to not contaminate the ink pads.
The background needed a bit more, so I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die to cut it down to size, and give it a little stitched border. As an after thought, I should have done the same stitching with the white sentiment portion, but i had already adhered it down to the card base.
The word Aloha was die-cut out using the fun Cutie ABC die set, and then adhered to the white cardstock. Using the Zig Zag Stitched Edger Slimline die, I die cut, and placed a separation between the patterned background and white sentiment piece.
After coloring and hand-cutting the main image, I placed it over the little “hang Ten” sentiment strip from this stamp set. A few Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to compliment the colors in the card, and eliminate some of the overpowering white space around the large sentiment.
This stamp set brings a smile to my face!
