Grand Vacation Hawaii Blog Hop

Hawaii blog hop 3
ALOHA!!!  So excited that 30 of us going on the Stampin’ Up! Hawaii Incentive trip are participating in a BLOG HOP!!!  Our theme is Hawaiian…can’t wait to see all the ideas!  You’ve probably just come from Barb Mullikin’s blog!  Love her project!


When thinking about what to do, I realized that I really don’t have any current Hawaiian-looking stamps.  Of course, I could do flowers, but wanted a little something different.  So, besides flowers…what is Hawaii known for?  How about PINEAPPLES!  No sets with pineapples, but I could do something with punches!  Here’s my Hawaiian theme using pineapples…a card and matching little favor.


For the card I used the Perfect Print Alphabet Dies to spell out Aloha, cut from Garden Green cardstock.  The five pineapples were punched with the Extra Large Oval from Hello Honey In Color Backgrounds Designer Paper!  I thought the pattern in the DSP worked great!  I sponged Hello Honey around the edges.  The tops were stamped with the small flower in Flower Patch with Garden Green Ink and cut out.  The Petite Petals flowers were punched from Tangelo Twist cardstock and the centers from Crushed Curry cardstock.  Garden Green Candy Dots were placed in the centers.  Here’s a closeup of the card:

Then I made a Fry Box cut from Garden Green cardstock.  I used another pineapple and flower punch art on the front and added some White Bakers Twine.  Hello was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Whisper White across the front of the Fry Box and is from A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set.  I filled a cello bag with Tropical Trail Mix…yummy!  It is tied closed with 1/8″ Gold Ribbon.  Here’s a closeup:

I hope you think they are as super cute as I do!  Next up on the blog hop is Alison Solven!  I’m sure you will love her project, too!
