I have tons of pics to share, so let's get started! First up, a card using Kelly's Seattle stamp set.
I used Pool and Sunshine papers. The Misti comes in quite handy with this design. I place the images onto my panel and then have the Misti do all the work. I used Tide Pool Shadow ink. It has a bit of an ombre look, eh? That might happen if you don't clean off your stamps from their last use. I was going to do it over again but, I like it!
Next up, is something that was quite a project for me! Yup, it's a mini album that I created using a notebook that I picked up for super cheap!
F6078 Pineapple • DC181 Kelly's Labels Stamp & Cut
My first page uses the fun Pineapple stamp. It's been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. I also used Kelly's Labels Stamp & Cut.
H6158 Destination Seattle • H6169 Destination Hawaii • CL981 Happy Mail
I'm a huge fan of the new Destination stamps...I used Seattle and Hawaii...see the arrow? That is from the new Happy Mail stamp set released as an add-on for the (sold out) April My Monthly Hero Kit.
CL978 Beach • CL956 Color Layering Seahorse
We definitely were spoiled by the gorgeous weather and perfect trade winds that made me a happy camper! I'm trying to incorporate my handwriting more often in my projects. Maui Hyatt was written on Kelly's Everyday Sticky Notes. The peace, love & sunshine is from the New Beach set. The stamps on the right page are all from the Color Layering Seahorse set. The starfish was inked with Butter Bar + Dark Quartz Shadow Inks. I watercolored the page a smidge with my Peerless.
CG695 Irregular Grid Bold Prints • CL977 City Adventure
I was super lucky to fly over to Oahu and meet up with Niki Garcia and Donna Mikasa💚 (note: super sad that the pic turned out dark) We had such an awesome dinner together! I used Kelly's Food Coma + Kelly's Girl Talk Planner stamps on the left page.
Darin and I toured the Road to Hana with another couple from his company. It was a long day but we managed to stop by several places like Hana Farms + Maui Wine. I used the new Irregular Grid Bold Prints and City Adventure on the Hana Farms page.
Thanks so much for stoppin' by...now hippety hop over to the awesome Clare's blog! In case you get lost along the way, here's the hop listing!
