Mahalo cards

Today I am sharing some Mahalo cards I made, using Alt E New's Totally Tropical stamp set. I needed to mass produce a lot of thank you cards, and these layering stamps fit the bill! I could get lots of color without having to color each image. I stamped the layers for the hibiscus with several pink inks with a black ink outline, masked it off and then stamped more flowers and leaves with a rainbow of ink colors: yellows, oranges, blues, and greens, along with black ink for the outlines. I made over 30 of these, and will be sending out a lot of thank you notes soon!

Supply List:
Alt E New's Totally Tropical stamp set
Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink
Gina K ink pads
Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkle embossing powder
Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen
metallic watercolor set
Distress Oxide inks
Bossy Joscie Crafty Goods Handcrafted By personalized stamp
MISTI stamp platform

After stamping the images, I stamped out the sentiment from Alt E New's Totally Tropical in gold ink and then covered it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks along the outer edges of all the card panels. I also splattered some metallic watercolors onto the panel as well. I created card bases, and then adhered the panel onto the front.

I also jazzed up a few of them. I swiped on Nuvo's Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen onto the pink hibiscus and squeezed on some yellow stickles onto the yellow and blue flower centers. The shine is hard to show in a photo, but it was super sparkly in real life!

My Mom taught me to send thank you notes so these will put a dent in the stack of thank you card I need to send out. Thanks Mom for your life skills teachings!!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. These are wonderful Chris. I've yet to get mine stamped, but agree, I always have my kids write thank yous and hope that it will continue as they get older and no longer live under our roof!
