For my card, I used the Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°TM for the background. I blended just ONE color on each of my 60 degree rotations. I used a combination of Distress oxide inks including Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry to create this soft pastel palette.
I used our Never Lose Hope stand-alone die and cut out 3 pieces using Cotton Candy – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and stacked them together to create some depth. I used the shadow die on the blended background to create a little window to house the sentiment, and used the same color cardstock for my back panel. I really love the tone-on-tone effect.

I used a turning interval of 30° for my design. For my first round of inking, I used Speckled Egg on the irregular shaped cluster of hearts and Tattered Rose on the big outlined heart while jumping from one solid circle to the next. Then I used Blueprint Sketch on my second next round of inking while jumping from one outlined circle to the next.
She used one of the dies from Mountain Landscape Scene Builder dies and stencil set and cut out the mountain background using dark green cardstock. I love the shading details she added to the mountain tops using the stencil which comes in the set – super easy to do as you can see from her video!
The images from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set were coloured with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she placed the girls on action wobblers so that they can truly “hula”! So much fun!
To finish off, the punny sentiment from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set was stamped onto purple cardstock and adhered as a banner onto the card.
