Mountain Air Sunrise
I am having so much fun playing with the new Stampin’ Up! Soft Pastels Assortment. Here’s another card I created this week.
This one is my son Jon’s favorite. Here’s how to create this card.
First, use the side of the Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green chalks to cover the bottom of a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. You can use your finger to blend the chalk, but you can also use Stamping Sponges or Blending Brushes.
Back to the card — Add some Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Chalks to create a sunrise, and again, blend the chalks with your fingers/sponges/blender brushes. Then add some Pacific Point chalk for the sky above the sunrise. After you blend all the chalk colors, blend in a little Poppy Parade chalk for the sunrise.
Now it’s time to stamp. Stamp the mountain image from the Mountain Air Stamp Set using a Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad. I stamped this several times using the Stamparatus.
Next, turn the stamp over and stamped the reverse image using Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Ink.
For the bottom of the card, stamp the evergreen trees from the Mountain Air Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink along the bottom of the card. Stamp most of them full strength, but fill in with stamped off trees.
Stamp a sentiment in Evening Evergreen on Soft Succulent Cardstock, then punch with the Double Oval Punch, then add to the card.
I made several more cards over the past week using the Soft Pastels, but I’ll save them for later. I can’t wait to show the one using stencils! That was a fun learning experience.
One of the other products I played with over the weekend was the Give it a Whirl Dies. You may have missed these “stand alone” dies. They coordinate with quite a few stamp sets, but they aren’t part of a bundle. They are much easier to use than they look and quite a bit of fun.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day! If you’re in the United States, take a minute today to remember our soldiers who gave their lives for our country. May they never be forgotten.
