Y&FH Hang Loose Previews ~ Summer Chuckles

SALE ALERT! In honor of Father's Day all Yumi & Fumi Handmade guy stamps are now on sale until Father's day! Head on over to the Y&FH online store and pick up a few.  *Sister Stamps are not part of this sale.

Aloha and welcome to day two of previews at Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  Make sure to stop back each day this week to see the previews and on Saturday you'll be able to purchase the whole release.  We're excited to share this release with you and we hope you enjoy it.  Today we're spotlighting Summer Fumi's cousin, Summer Chuckles.  Today I have cards to share so be sure to leave a comment here then head on over to the Y&FH blog where you'll find out how you might be able to pick up this stamp.  Here's my card using my newest Spellbinder and some of the same papers from the Kaiser Craft Seaside Collection paper pad as well as the same embossing technique I've used the past two days.

Besides Summer Chuckles I also used two sentiments from a set we'll be previewing tomorrow.  Here's a close up of Summer Chuckles:

I think he's really cool.  I made a quick second card and had a little bit of fun with Chuckles. 

(Also pictured here is the word shaka which will be showcased tomorrow)  He's wearing my version of a coconut leaf hat made out of paper and markers.  (haha)  It's supposed to be a woven hat made out of coconut leaves. My cousin would make these kinds of hats for us and they were soo cool with their big leaves and intricate weaving patterns.  Here's a picture of some real life ones:

Pretty cool yea?  And they kept the sun out of your face just as well if not better than a baseball cap.  Here's a close-up of Summer Chuckles:

I could actually picture Chuckles wearing a hat similar to this one.  hehehe.  This card is actually a gift certificate or money holder.  Here's a quick pic of the inside with a sentiment from AmyR.

Stop by the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog to see how you can win Summer Chuckles.  And if you didn't link up for the past two days for a chance to win Summer Yumi or Summer Fumi do so now.  You have until Sunday, June 16th at 10am but better to do it now than later, you might forget!  (haha)  Ok, thanks so much for stopping by today!  Tomorrow is day 4 of previews and we'll be showcasing some more cool stuff for the summer.  Until then have a terrific day!!
