Aloha Honu!

Dave has been at it again - I think I may have to nickname him Dave the Die King - lol!

All this week we're having a blog blitz to reveal the new summer 2012 collection.

P R I Z E   O P P S:

There will be a drawing at the end of each day from the pool of reader comments for a prize! So don't be shy if you want a chance to win one of the new dies!!!

There is a Flickr card contest! You have until Thursday, June 14th, (11:59 EST) to upload a card to the Memory Box group using at least one Memory Box die. Two winners will be selected to receive some new Memory Box dies, and the winning cards will be highlighted on Outside the Box on Friday, June 15th.

(FYI, I am totally in love with all of the new dies, but I really, really love the ones with the Hawaiian theme.)

Here's a card I made (I used some glimmer mist on the dark flowers - it looks lovely in person but was impossible to capture on film):


Pin It

S U P P L I E S:

Memory Box cardstock: Lagoon, Pool; Patterned Paper: Polka Polka from the 6"x6" Viola collection; Memory Box dies: Graceful Honu, Outline Honu, and Lovely Lei; Computer Fonts: Mariah, Hibiscus; Pearls: Mark Richardson; Other: Glimmer Mist, pop-dots

I N S T R U C T I O N S:

  1. Make Lagoon card base and Pool panel.
  2. Print computer sentiment on Pool panel and adhere to card.   
  3. Adhere Pool panel to card.
  4. Die cut Lei and Honu from white and Lagoon cardstock and patterned paper.
  5. Adhere white Lei to card. 
  6. Spritz Lagoon Lei with Glimmer Mist and allow to dry; fussy cut random flowers and adhere to white lei. 
  7. Stack and adhere Honu to card with pop-dots.
  8. Adhere pearls to flowers and Honu.

H O W   T O   M A K E   T H E   S E N T I M E N T:

I used Photoshop Elements to make my sentiment. I wrote "aloha" in Mariah font. Then I created a new layer and used a dingbat font (Hibiscus) to create the flower. I aligned the two layers and used the pen tool to bridge a tiny bit of a gap between the tail of the "a" and the hibiscus flower. Print on regular paper to determine where you will need to adhere your cardstock. Once you've got the sentiment where you want it, adhere the cardstock using low-tack tape, load it into your printer, and print. (See, wasn't that easy?)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!



Aloha, honu. That pretty much says it all. Love Hawai'i and the honus!

I love the new Lei die and of course, all the others. Dave strikes again!!! I think Die King is a very fitting name for him!!!

but no die for the individual flowers. :( Love the colors of this card

Great card! I can't wait to see all the new dies. ;-)

The little turtle adds just the right touch!
I like what I've seen of the new dies so far! Looking forward to more posts.

So fun, Deborah! I agree, Dave just keeps coming out with the BEST dies!!

So pretty, makes me want to take a vacation!
