Hang Loose Preview - Aloha Honu set

Happy Aloha Friday everyone & Happy Flag Day!!

Today is the last day of previews for the new Hang Loose series.  We hope you've enjoyed them as much as we've enjoyed sharing them with you.  For our last preview showcase I am going to share our beautiful Aloha Honu set.  If you are unfamiliar with the term honu, it is the Hawaiian word for turtle.  When I think of Hawaii I think not only of good food, beautiful people, breathtaking beaches, but I also think of cute sea turtles.  We asked our awesome illustrator to create some beautiful honu for this release and she did not disappoint. This set includes 5 stamps.  Two beautiful sea honu, one sentiment and two lotus flowers (designed by our very own Renate' Winter).  We know that most of you will have so much fun with this set, just as we all have.

As with the Tiki set, these are another set of stamps that are not scroll-cut or indexed as our usual stamps are, however they are still of the best quality, you will just have to work a little bit harder to stamp with them.

Well what do you think?  I have a feeling this is going to be a fun set of stamps to play with.  Below are samples from Eva, Denice and myself created just for today's preview, as you scroll through think of the Little Mermaid song, "Under the Sea" because that is truly what some of these are, under the sea... (LOL):

Eva created this beautiful shaker card featuring a wonderful underwater scene with ALL the stamps: 

This is something I could definitely picture seeing IRL.  A beautiful use of all the stamps! 
Gorgeous card Eva!!

Next up is Denice with this awesome display featuring the Lotus Flowers
(Also shown are Summer Chuckles & The Hang Loose retro icons)

Oh yea! This is sooo cool!! Denice really knows how to showcase the images.  This is awesome!!

Leanne used a combination of Honu #1 and the Aloha sentiment:

Leanne also made a washi tape shaker card with Honu #2 and the Lotus flowers:

Hehehe pretty cool yea?  We thought these were the perfect ending to a week long preview.  We hope you've enjoyed our showcase.

I have a confession to make ... I love cartoons (I'm a big kid lol). My by far favourite is Lilo and Stitch (I looooove Stitch <3) and Finding Nemo is not that far behind either. And this release reminded me of these two cartoons!!! I think I know what I will be watching over the weekend. lol Amazing release with lots of fun and beautiful stamps. I'm sure they will be flying out of the store! :)
