Mountain Air

Stampin Up Mountain Air

This card are partially inspired by a photograph I saw online somewhere and the night view out my window at the cottage.  When there are some clouds at sunset the sky turns a magnificent colors of pink, orange and purple.  It can be breathtaking.  My camera is just a mobile phone so the photos don’t always show how gorgeous the sky is but here is an example of one of our sunsets.

Stampin Up Mountain Air

I decided to try to make a card with this inspiration using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Mountain Air.  This stamp set has coordinating dies called Majestic Mountains and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle.  I didn’t use the dies for this card but if you get the stamp set, you just have to get the dies too.

To make this card I first cut a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then I using Stampin’ Up!® Sponges to add the color to the background using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I started it heavier on the bottom and then went lighter as I went up.  Then I stamped the trees at the bottom Memento Black Ink and then a little higher using Highland Heather ink.  I also stamped the mountains in Highland Heather after stamping off first.  Stamping off means to ink up the stamp, stamp in on a scrap piece of paper and then on the cardstock.  It makes the color less vibrant when you do this.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Beautiful Autumn which is in the new Holiday Catalog.

  1. Susan, this is breathtaking. First, your card is so gorgeous! I love the colors and the way you captured the sunset with the mountains. And that sunset on the lake is amazing. If your phone isn’t capturing the actual splendor, I can’t imagine how beautiful it is IRL, because this is awesome. (Ummmm, maybe try an iPhone? HA HA HA HA! Just kidding.)
