I am so excited to have picked up The Greeting Farm Aloha Stamp Kit Set. When I first saw it, I didn’t know if I “needed” it. That lasted for a couple of weeks and then when my hubby and I booked a trip to Hawaii for the end of the summer I took it as a sign. I was meant to get this stamp set! LOL


I colored up this cutie patootie with the following Copic colors, fussy cut her out, and popped her up on double sided foam adhesive:
Hair: Y11, E55, E57, E59
Skin: E50, 51, 11, 13 with R20 blush
Plumeria flowers: Y13, Y35, RV21, RV25, RV29
Bikini top: RV21, RV25, RV29
Hula skirt: Y00, YG03, YG25, YG17
Sand: E31


To make the shaker card front, I cut a window up and over to the right of the card front using the third smallest die from the Labels twenty-three Spellbinders Nestabilities die set. For the shaker background, I used another scrap of the stripey 20160713_220522-1watery paper that I had made in THIS VIDEO (starting at 0:56) with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and watercolor paper. Then I used a little zip lock baggie and sprinkled in tiny iridescent glitter and chunky silver Stampin’ Up! glitter along with a half dozen tiny plastic dolphins that my friend Jackie had recently gifted me. I taped the baggie to the back of the card front opening, and then put double sided foam adhesive to level out the card front before attaching it to the card base.

I wanted to keep the front of the card very CAS (even with the shaker) so I opted to put the sentiment on the inside of the card. For the sentiment, I hand wrote: “It’s your birthday!” and used the sentiment stamp “Let’s Hula!” Between the “jumping and twirling” dolphins in the shaker and the little girl hula dancing on the front, I hope this card will bring a little interactive fun to the recipient. 🙂 It was a super easy peasy and fun shaker card to make.
