Lilo's Fun Friday # 24 - Happy Birthday Chuck!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Aloha Friday my friends!!  Whew! It's the end of the week and we made it!  hahaha!!

For today's LFF #24, I wanted to share a card I made using one of the new release boy stamps from Sister Stamps and his name is Yoshi.  I have a wonderful cousin named Chuck.  You might remember that he and I did a crafty project back in February for his cast members.  He works for the Happiest Place on Earth and boy does he take his job seriously.  He's the nicest and friendliest person you'll ever meet and if you're lucky enough to run in to him at Disneyland he'll try his best to make your dreams come true.  Just ask my friend Sandie.  As many times as I've been to Disneyland, he's always willing to come and meet up with me and my friends, even after an 8-hour shift starting at 6 am!  He truly represents the Aloha spirit and all my friends want to be related to him.  lol..  I love him to death and thankful that I can drive up to see him or visa-versa and we can just hang out.  He's got a contagious smile and laugh and his hugs are wonderful.  He's one of the coolest guys I know.  His birthday was on Sunday, so I wracked my brain on a card for him.  It had to be bright and fun just like him.



I recently got the new boy stamps from Sister Stamps release #7.  Did you all see them?  Well if you haven't, you must get over to the Sister Stamps blog to see them, there you will find links to vendors that sell them online.  Out of the three I thought Yoshi would be fun to work with.  I pictured him tumbling, how to do that?  Hmmmm, first I stamped him 3 times and colored him up and then positioned him as if he were doing a cartwheel. Once I was satisfied with his positioning I chose some bg paper.  Thought him tumbling outside would be fun so I used up some scraps of green paper and made grass.  I used scissors to create rolling hills, then I used my finger nail to distress the top so you could see the two levels.  Using two strips of that paper I glued down one strip above the other, the bottom one I used dimension tape and turned it in to a 2-D (yep not enough for a 3-D rating lol) level.  Used my Fiskars small cloud punch and cut out some in white, then Distressed the clouds with Ranger DI in tumbled glass.  I used kraft cs for the main part of the card.  Love using that color, makes the card look really warm. Pretty CAS yea?  This was really fun to make.  Hope he likes it and smiles when he sees it.


Did something really simple on the inside.  Recognize the song?  I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!  From the Pointer Sisters!  Thought that was a fun sentiment to use for the front and inside.


Mahalo for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments through out the week. Really appreciate it!
Happy Aloha Friday!!

Hugs,
Lilo

Hoe fun... your cousin works at Disneyland. My family and I have probably seen him around the twenty some thing times we have been there using our passes. Which ride does he work at? I am sure that your cousin will love the card that you made for him with the great coloring and with the card full of action. I have not received my order of the new release yet, but I can't wait to receive them.
