A Little 'Aloha' to Brighten Your Day

Hi Everyone

I know it has been a long time since I lasted posted, but I have had a very busy few weeks - friends visiting from the UK and a trip to Hawaii, not to mention all the usual 'stuff'.  It is however good to get back to a little crafting, and I have even started to scrapbook again.

I am very excited to make this post today, as it is my first as a member of the DT for C Thru The Woods.  Charlene is the creator/artist behind those fabulous guy stamps that you see accompanying so many of the Prima doll stamps on various creations, I love the dolls, and it is great to have some guys to go with them, but also great to have these guys stand alone for masculine cards (finally!)

Here is my first card for C Thru The Woods, using Jeremiah.  If you take a look at this stamp you will see that he comes dressed in jeans and has a skateboard, but inspired by my recent trip to Hawaii I decided to change him up a bit.  Take a look...

All the paper I used is from an Echo Park 6x6 pad called 'Beach Boardwalk'.  I loved the colours of this paper, and it had kind of a 50's/60's feel to it - perfect for a surfer 'dude'.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers, paper pieced his shorts, and then cut the surfboard from a Silhouette file with my Cameo.  Here are a couple of close-ups.

I decorated the inside of the card, but left it blank so that I could add a sentiment later.

I just want to say a big thank you to Charlene for having me on her design team, I am so excited to create with these guys and see what she has in store for us all in the future.

All the guy stamps can be purchased from the C Thru The Woods Store, or check out the list of stores to see if there is a retailer near you.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project.
