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 Yumi's friend, Summer Fumi.  Today Eva, Sandie and I have cards to share so be sure to stop by Eva's blog and Sandie's blog 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 the ink in the embossing folder technique.


Summer Fumi reminds me of my little cousin.  Always smiling and flashing the shaka sign.  She looks like a little hapa girl here.  I love her!  I decided to go with another CAS card and used a few distress ink pads and inked up the negative side of the embossing folder.  I ran the folder, with the paper, through my Cuttlebug and got that impression.  Next I went over the raised side with brown ink so that only the flowers were inked.  It looks like patterned paper yea?  It's not, just some white cardstock, an embossing folder and some inks.  Love how this turned out and definitely plan to do the same with other colors. The sentiment is a laser cut one from Island Scrapbooking and I was a lucky recipient of it from a cool RAK, thanks Jenny!  I colored the sentiment with Copics and thought it looked cool, almost like koa wood.


Stop by the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog to see how you can win Summer Fumi.  And if you didn't link up yesterday for a chance to win Summer Yumi 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 3 of previews and should be a fun one.  Until then have a terrific day!!
