Mountain Air

June 18, 2020

Yesterday on my Facebook Live, I shared some cards I made using the Mountain Air stamp set.   I have had this stamp set since the July-December Catalogue launched last year and this is the first time I have used it!  That’s a bit sad isn’t it.  Never mind, I think I thought it was going to be harder to use than it actually is.  It has co-ordinating dies as well and I am sure you could team this set with many other’s in the Annual Catalogue.  It is also a reversible stamp set. So on one side you get a solid image and on the other side you get a detailed image.  For the first card I shared,  I stamped the solid mountain image across Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the detailed mountain image over the top using Early Espresso ink and because I wanted to have the image go from edge to edge, I didn’t line up the detailed image, I just stamped over the top. I stamped the detailed tree image across the bottom of the mountain image using Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped the solid image for the cloud across the top of the Whisper White card using Pool Party ink which I stamped off onto scrap paper first. I stamped the detailed cloud image using the same ink.  I attached the stamped panel to Crumb Cake card and then scored and folded Mossy Meadow card.  I stamped the greeting from the Band Together stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink and punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.  I punched Crumb Cake card using the Tailored Tag Punch and cut it in half across the width.  I attached one half behind the back of the top of the stamped tag and the other half behind the bottom of the stamped tag.  I attached the greeting to the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the detailed double tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.

For the second card I embossed Crumb Cake card using the Woodland Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Mossy Meadow card.  I cut Whisper White card using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and stamped the solid mountain image across the circle using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the detailed mountain image over the top using Early Espresso ink and lined up the images so that they matched.   I lightly sponged Old Olive ink below the mountain image and then stamped the detailed tree image using the same ink.  I sponged Pool Party ink above the mountain image and then stamped the detailed cloud image using the same ink. I also added the small bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set using Early Espresso ink.  The image panel is attached to a Mossy Meadow scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting, punched it out and added a layer of Mossy Meadow as I did on the greeting for the first card.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Mossy Meadow card behind one long edge of Crumb Cake card embossed using the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed panel to the bottom of Whisper White card and stamped the detailed double tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.

For the third card I shared, I cut  the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies from the centre of a Crumb Cake panel.  After I cut the circle, I embossed the Crumb Cake card using the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I stamped the solid mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the detailed mountain image over the top using Early Espresso ink, lining up the image.  I sponged Mossy Meadow ink below the mountain and stamped the detailed tree image also using Mossy Meadow ink.  I sponged the sky using Pool Party ink and stamped the detailed cloud image using the same ink.   I also added the bird image using Early Espresso ink.  The Whisper White panel I stamped is larger than the circle I cut in the Crumb Cake card, so I simply lined up the part of the image, I liked the best behind the circle and attached it to the embossed Crumb Cake card.  The embossed panel is attached to scored and folded Mossy Meadow card.  I stamped the detailed double tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using the co-ordinating Majestic Mountain Die.  I attached the tree image to the card front on the left hand side of the die cut circle.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Band Together stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I also stamped the detailed double tree image onto the lower left hand corner using Mossy Meadow ink.

I think these cards turned out great.  I can’t believe I waited this long to use this stamp set.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
