Aloha everyone!!

Welcome to the first day of previews for our new Hang Loose Release.  We're going to be spotlighting these new stamps for the next five days and on Saturday, June 15th they will all be available for purchase at the Yumi & Fumi Handmade online store.  We hope you'll come back daily, because there will be a chance for prizes.  More about that at the end of this post.

How about a little background on this new release?

When Renate' and I were coming up with the concept for this release we knew we wanted to tie in something from Hawaii this time.  One of the most iconic symbols or hand gestures you see around the islands is the "shaka sign".  Click here to see the different origins and meanings.  I guess you could say it looks like the sign for I love you, but with all three fingers (index, middle and ring) down.  What I love best about the meaning is that it can be used in so many different ways.  To convey the Aloha Spirit, or just an easy way to say hi, howzit or how's it going?!   We also wanted to incorporate some other fun aspects that we love about Hawaii so you'll see those later on in the week.

Starting off today's showcase we've got our first stamp in the new series, Summer Yumi.  Some of the DT is sharing their creations, make sure to head on over to their blogs to leave them some love. :)

Leanne's card featuring Summer Yumi:


Isn't she awesome?!  Her pigtails are fun and her slippas are soo cute.  It's the little details I love about this stamp. :)
