Y&FH Hang Loose Release ~ Tiki Surf Stamp Set

Aloha everyone!

Welcome to day 4 of previews for our Hang Loose stamps release.

In a few days you will be able to purchase all of the stamps and get started on some cool summer fun cards and projects. 

All the stamps will be available on Saturday, June 15th in our online store. 

Today I will be showcasing something brand new to Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  We've added sets of stamps that can be used as accessories or on their own to our collection.  Each set is made of deeply etched red rubber on to cling mount for nice even stamping and ALL made in the USA.  The only difference with these stamps are that they will not be scroll cut or indexed as our other stamps are, but the quality of the stamp is still the same. 

For this release we have two sets with multiple images, I'll share the second one tomorrow, but for today I will be sharing samples from our TIKI SURF set.  In keeping with our Hang Loose theme we decided to go with some all time favorite "icons" that tie in to the whole Hang Loose theme.  Illustrated by our amazing artist, included in this set are 2 surfboards (a long and short board), a tiki, a honu ohana that can be used as a border or on its own,  two Hang Loose symbols and 3 sentiments.

 This set is perfect for the consummate surfer or water sport fan, but can also be used for any fun occasion and of course go really well with any of the other stamps.  Here are just a few of the different projects created with this set:

You definitely must stop by Eva's blog to see the awemazing tag she created with Tiki. It's soo cool, her tiki looks awesome!  Here's a look at my Tiki card that was not shared on the Y&FH blog today.  Having one tiki spotlighted was enough. haha...  Are ya all getting tired of my using the embossing folders?  Well sorry, it seems to be my go to, especially because I have tons of them.  I'm just so happy that I get to use them a lot more.  hmmm... might be time to be getting rid of some paper.. Eek!

Ta-da!  I really love how this one turned out.  The embossing folder is one of my favorites especially when it comes to doing CAS.
I've got quite a few cards to share today hope you can stay and go through them all.  Next up are the Long & Short boards, and the Sweet Ride sentiment:

Here's one with the Petroglyph honu, where I used another embossing folder:

Last up is this 4x4 card featuring the larger sized Hang Loose icon with a cool surprise:

Hehehe pretty cool yea?  After coloring up the image and using Distress Inks to give it that cool yellow border I popped it on to the black cs that was die cut with a Spellbinder stamp die and then I popped that onto a wobbly wobble thingy.  I gave this card to my brother for his birthday and he had a nice laugh about it.

Stop by the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog to see how you can win the Tiki Surf set.  And if you didn't link up for the past 3 days for a chance to win Summer Yumi, Summer Fumi or Summer Chuckles 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 the last day of previews and we'll be showcasing the second stamp set which I'm bet you'll all love. 
Until then have an awesome Thursday!!
