A Set of Cards for Gifting

Aloha!

How are you my friends? It's a beautiful, sunny but cooler day here in Hawai'i. We can feel "fall" in the air, too, as it gets cool at nights and mornings, a crispness but still warm afternoons in the 80s. This is my favorite time of year in Hawai'i! The humpback whales start showing up to calve their young, then start back for Alaska around March.

I made a little set of cards to give to friends. The cards and envelopes are ocean themed. I like to give a book of stamps with cards which is an idea I got from Jennifer McGuire ♥ It will make it easier for them to use if the stamps are right there with them. Using a MISTI makes it super fast to kick multiple cards out. After stamping, I flicked a little ink to make ocean spray. The backs of the envelopes are stamped with faded sand pipers.


Stamp Sets: "Wetlands (for the gift cards and envelopes)" and "Sheltering Tree (the envelope for personal card)" by Stampin' Up
Cardstock: GKD Prickly Pear, White - both 120 and 80#
Ink: Memento; VersaFine Sepia for the sentiment; GKD mini inks for the tree on envelope
Spetrum Noir clear glitter brush pen
MISTI


Gift Card Set "Wetlands"






The envelope with a personal card inside;
Pkg of "pet" forever stamps :)



Thank you for stopping by dear ones!
Have a great week ahead ♥

  4. Wow! Love these sets! You are doing so well, Rosy, to get all these cards made, along with decorating the envelopes to match! I can barely even keep up with posting comments on your lovely cards--never mind even make my own cards.... Are you still moving over to the mainland soon?
