Alpine Adventure is another stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2018 Holiday Catalog. It has a set of matching dies called Alpine Sports Thinlits and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. A few years ago, Stampin’ Up! sold a stamp set similar to this one but it did not have matching dies. This set goes over the top and actually has 12 dies in it. One of them cuts out the cutest wooden sled and the rest of the dies have a lot of detail to them.
To make this card I first stamped the snow shoes in Crumb Cake ink and cut them out using the matching dies. Then I cut out two snowflakes using Balmy Blue cardstock. I stamped the background of the card using two snowflakes. One is in Balmy Blue and the other is Blueberry Bushel. I cut a circle out of the Best Route Designer Series Paper Series Paper and then a scalloped circle in Balmy Blue using the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel and cut it out with a die that is included in the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies and put it all together. The ribbons is 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Blueberry Bushel.
Today I am headed to Orlando for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention. It is their 30th birthday so it should be a fun celebration. Thanks to all of you, this year I earned a promotion and can go to CentreStage which is a free day at Epcot with Rob. I am really looking forward to that! I will try to put out little posts of information if I can. It is going to be four full days of seeing new products, spending time with Demonstrators from all over the world and making fun projects. We will also get to see the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs! Thank you for your orders over the years. I couldn’t have done it without all of you!
