Get Ready to Hookie Lau..We're Going to a Luau!

I've been keeping a secret!  I was asked to be the Guest Designer on the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog!

The Design Team theme is .Luau.   You are free to create whatever you want.   How's that for fun?  I decided to make a little set that could be used for a party or for a romantic little Hawaiian evening with your honey.  ;-)
First up is my card, which I made as an invitation but could also be used for a fun summer beach card.
The images are from an acrylic set I found at JoAnn's by Fiskars called "Island Fun".  The totem image is a single that I just stacked one on another, embossed with clear embossing powder then cut out.  The flower and sentiment are from the same set.  See those little swirly things around the flowers?  Well, they were left over when I used my swirled MS border punch on another project.  I knew I could use them on something!

Next up is my little glass charm which also doubles as a wrist lei.  I punched flowers from mulberry paper then strung them on pink elastic cording.

Finally, is a little favor box.  This is actually the cute Life Savers Box from the Cutting Cafe.  This box holds 4 packages of Lifesavers.  I didn't have any Lifesavers but guess what?  It also holds 4 of these yummy Ghiradelli chocolates that just happened to match my box. 

It's summertime...great time to plan a Luau.  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what the fabulously talented Design Team has in store for you then grab your grass skirt, your ukulele, your vivid colors and stamps and play along. 

This is also for the F4A20 Free for All Challenge at SCS - Show Us What Ya Got...how'd they know I HAD to go shopping?  Who ratted me out?!

Paper - K & Co. Citronella
Stamps - Fiskars Island Fun
Ink - Versafine
Accessories - large flower punch, elastic cording

Pin It!
