Hello Sunshine * MFT Vault Release

Aloha! and welcome to the August Vault Release Day! This is the biggest Vault release ever! If you love all things beach and summer related, this might be for you :-)

Todays card features Polynesian Paradise and Fall Florals. The first set comes with this adorable hula girl and a bunch of super cute critters like this turtle. The second set is full of beautiful flower stamps, mostly solid ones that are great for backgrounds, scenes and much more.



I started by stamping the little lady and the turtle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I'm totally into my new alcohol markers called Graph'it Markers, so I did a bunch of coloring lately. I just love it, its so relaxing... I practiced coloring darker skin tones and really like how it turned out.


After the coloring process, I cut my stamped images out using the coordinating dies. If you follow me on IG, you might know that I really love to make cards with a lot of white space. As my last two cards were not clean and simple but showing a whole scene, I wanted to try a mix of both styles. Here's what I came up with. I stamped some flowers, grass and a log to create a simple scene but I left the rest of the background white. You could totally make an ink blendend background or so but I wanted to keep it super simple. I cut the panel to size and glued it to my card base. Then, I added the images to my panel using foam tape and stamped the greeting in grey ink.

Have a happy day,

  4. Fantastic look. Your coloring is wonderful. Placing the foliage going downward makes me think this is a private hula dance for the turtle and myself.

  26. Oh, like many who have already commented, I love how you combined the flat more abstract leaf stamping with the popped up girl and your really dimensional coloring. That is such a cool look.
