Day 3: Peace Love and Sushi Kit and Take Care Incentive

Welcome to our final day of blog hops for our August release, please know there will be continued inspiration throughout the month and beyond! Thanks in advance for your comments, we really appreciate knowing what you liked best and really want you to win one of those $50 gift certificates! The more you comment, the better your chances! You should be coming from Lisa's blog.

So the sushi in this Peace Love and Sushi Kit kit is so stinkin' adorable, I just had to cut and stamp and color them ALL as soon I opened the box. ( I know the lotus is great and all, but this is SUSHI! With FACES!)  I made a pile of cards in no time, some bold colors, clean lines and minimal details make for quick cards and really give these such a zen feel! Add a silly face, and you can't help but smile!

Squiggle on a bit of brown with a marker to the top of the rice for a drizzle of soy (much love!) Accent the bottle with white gel pen to make the surface look super shiny and dimensional. I used Lisa's wheel die from Wildflowers and Wheels set and the HELLO caps die. I said it the last two days and I'm saying it again: The caps dies are all amazing!  Click that link to see them all and add as you are able to your collection. You're welcome.

TIP: When adhering letters, put the die just below like a template where you are gluing to put each letter above for perfect spacing. Or, if you haven't already used the the negative part of your cutting (I had on another card) drop them into the letter holes with glue and then remove the template, easy peasy!  I lined these up with the bottom of my card to keep them straight and it looks so clean and graphic along the edge.
"Shrimply the best"! SHRIMPLY!!
I doubt I'll ever just say "simply" again...
The punny sayings are so great for the younger peeps, 
or anyone who loves good sushi or a good pun! 

Master Layouts 2 dies above and below make professional looking layouts a snap!
Smiling faces, happy places! 
Have you gotten your RAINBOW HEARTS yet?


Originally I was going to use the I like the way you roll greeting with the circle die cut above, in reference to a wheel, but just changed my mind on layouts. It's still rolled sushi!  Leave some white on the side when coloring for a shiny nori wrap! I love the GKD Lucky Clover as a base, like hot wasabi!  It's also easy to make larger chopstick accents with those skinny trimmings of cardstock you have a ton of, just snip at an angle! Here the Coral Reef cardstock really brings out those matchstick carrots in the roll and just give some added energy for a dynamic layout.

Have we given you enough ideas to create a cart that totals over $75 so you can get this adorable set? I hope so! Treat yo'self!

Take Care
