A Musical Mahalo

My son has been playing Ukulele since he was five so I thought this A Place In Time Stencil would work perfectly for his thank you cards:

I just love this beautiful stencil with the Ilima lei wrapped around the Ukulele.
I used the dauber to apply the ink onto the stencil.  It gives an "airbrush" feel to it.  For a 3D look and feel, I went over the ilima flower lei with Pumpkin Liquid Pearl and then handwrote the MAHALO on each card. 

A Place In Time makes beautiful Hawaiian-kine stencils!!!

Another quickie, last minute birthday card using SU Owl Punch and Cupcake Punch.  Chipboard letters, star embossing template and pre-made background card made this one a quick early morning project!!  (Yes, I did finish it at 4:30 a.m.)

Hangin' Loose with Kona

This is Kona. 

Although I admit I had him for a couple of years and used him only 1 time.
As soon as I saw him, I wanted this stamp set!!  Isn't he adorable?!! Nevermind the high postage cost!! 
 I decided to use the stamp set to create my tea swap card for Mary in Florida.  
The theme of the swap was masculine and the optional colors were blue and green.
 The younger version of Kona
which I used for tea holder.  Of course, I had to include teas from Hawaii!
 The set all together.  Hope she likes it!!
