Aloha Card for the Stampin’ Up! Hawaii Grand Vacation Blog Hop


  Hawaii Blog Hop


ALOHA!  Welcome to the Hawaii Grand Vacation Blog Hop . . . of which I'm thrilled to be a part!  You may have just arrived from Selene Kempton's blog!


I'm even more thrilled about the fun card I created for it!  I have to admit that the task was daunting at first . . . I had no stamps, tools, punches, nada . . . that spoke "Hawaiian" to me!  That meant I had to do some thinking!  Oh no!


The first thought that came to me was surfboard . . . the second was lei.  Here's the combination of my two thoughts!

The background paper is from the Birthday Bash Specialty Paper.  A piece of this print was sitting on my crafting table while I was in the "creating" stage of this card.  It spoke "Hawaiian" to me and became the background and inspiration for my color combination!  Gotta love Stampin' Up! papers!


Aloha close

Bet you're wondering what I used to make that surfboard?  It's a Word Bubble Framelit with the little arrow cut off!  The center "decal" is a piece of Retro Fresh Washi Tape!  


The flowers for the lei are made with the little flower punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  I simply snipped in between the petals just a bit and then folded each petal over my finger nail and scrunched!  They're attached to a piece of Linen Thread with Tombo Liquid Glue.


The top and bottom of the fence are punched with the Triangle Punch!  Be sure to scroll all the way down to find a supplies list! 


You'll for sure want to take the entire tour!  Tons of talented demonstrators from all over the WORLD . . . and I get to vacation with them in Hawaii in May!  Pinch me!

Next stop is Linda Higgins blog!



  1. Georgia, This paper could not have been more perfect for this Hawaii-themed hop! I’ve loved it since I saw it and never thought to use it for this. Gorgeous! Love the fence, love the lei, love the colors. Nice work. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

  2. LOVE the surfboard! Both my brothers surf and this is so cool, I might have to case this idea Georgia! They are both very envious of me going to Hawaii…I told them they could earn it too! 😉
    The timber fence and the lei hanging over it is ingenious! I knew that once everyone got their thinking caps on it would be awesome. 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing you soon, Louise xo
