I recently spent a wonderful week in Maui with my family.  When I returned home, I had this overwhelming urge to ink up my Papertrey Ink Aloha stamp set.  Go figure?

I saw this beautiful card by Marybeth back when I was searching for reasons to buy the Aloha set, and had been meaning to CASE it ever since.

Here are my two Aloha cards:

I sent this first card to one of my PTI pen pals, Belinda.  She recently moved to California from the east coast, and I wanted to welcome her to the state.  My daughter colored the flowers with copic markers.  She is so good at shading. 

This next card is a 'mahalo' card, and it will get filed away with my 'thank you' cards until I need it.  You will notice that the coloring on the orange card is much more primitive.  That is because Rachel was at camp when I made it, and I was too impatient to wait for her. 

The base of each card is PTI kraft, stamped in Versamark with a turtle stamp from Rubber Stamp Plantation out of Honolulu.  They have lots of fun Hawaiian stamps.

Supplies Used (all PTI unless otherwise noted)
Stamps:  Aloha, Rubber Stamp Plantation Cami's Honu
Paper:  Kraft, White, Black, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores
Other:  Ribbon, Copic markers

Thanks for looking.

  4. These are so cute! I've never noticed that sea turtle before-- I love how you used him to stamp the background!

  5. Beautiful , I love your turtle background! Coloring on both cards look great. So sweet of you to mention me. Kinda made my great day even better! Glad you had a good time in Maui.

  6. I love these cards Joyce! Of course, I'm biased to all things Hawaiian. Regardless of that these are wonderful. I love the Honu stamp on the kraft. So fun!
