Mountain Air

Stampin Up Mountain Air

As you know, Jackie, Buffy and I do bi-weekly challenges and a couple of weeks ago our challenge was to use the Blending Brushes.  I am not very good at it so I was scrolling through the internet and found a video that was made by someone at Hero Arts.  The man who did it made it look so easy and it came out so beautiful that I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) his card using my Stampin’ Up!® products.

The first thing I did is to using Pacific Point ink on a piece of Pacific Point card stock.  I started at the edges and went inward each time using the Blending Brush so the ink would be darker at the edges and lighter in the middle.  I am not sure if it is because I used the same color card stock and ink or what but it seemed to go on a lot smoother doing it this way then in my previous creations.

After I was happy with the blending I stamped the trees from the stamp set called Mountain Air.  I stamped them once right side up and then a second time upside without re-inking so it looked like a reflection in water.  I stamped the moon onto a separate piece of Pacific Point cardstock and dried it with my Heat Tool.  I did this numerous times for the moon at the top to make it brighter and only once for the reflecting moon.  I felt that the moons were too big for the card so I then punched it out using a retired circle punch.

I stamped the sentiment from the set called Color & Contour in Versamark Ink and then sprinkled White Embossing Powder on top and heat set that with my Heat Tool.  Lastly, I took a white gel pen and made stars.

  1. So, first – I don’t ever want to hear you say you’re not good at blending ever again. And second – this is one of the most gorgeous cards (if not the most) I’ve ever seen. It’s breathtaking, and everyone I’ve showed it to agrees. This is amazing, Susan! Simply gorgeous!
