JAI188 Sunset in the Mountains

Hi Stampers!!

I have had a very busy week and I wanted to spend a bit of time in my craft room this evening and finish up a card that I started a few days ago.  This card was created for the Just Add Ink JAI188 Just Add Grunge Challenge and as a reminder of a recent vacation that we took to Shenandoah National Park (once the furlough was lifted).  We saw a mother bear and her cub- they were so cute!!  Love traveling the Skyline Drive with my husband- a relaxing and fun day!!

If you have not had a chance to drop in and see the designs from the Just Add Ink team, I hope you will take a moment to do so- they have a terrific Design Team and the entries each week are fabulous as well!  

To create this card:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, create a mask using sticky notes and sponge Classic Ink from Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango to create the “scene”.  Stamp the trees from Lovely As A Tree using Early Espresso Classic Ink.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Framelits to cut out the image and lightly sand the edge with the Sanding Block.  Mount onto a circle cut from the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch from Early Espresso and again onto a circle of Basic Gray (also from the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch- cut into two and layered beyond the Early Espresso, trimming the edges to “merge” behind the Early Espresso circle).

On a piece of Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper, add the additional “grunge” details with stamps from Gorgeous Grunge and Off the Grid stamp sets and Crumb Cake and Basic Gray Classic Ink.

Distress the edges of the DSP using the Distressing Tool and add the strip of Satin Ribbon.  Mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Early Espresso Classic Ink.

Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.   

Stamp Sets:  Lovely As A Tree, Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Early Espresso. Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Big Shot™, Circle Collection Framelits™, 2 ½” XL Circle Punch, Distressing Tool, Sponge Daubers, Satin Ribbon (from my stash)


Thanks again for visiting- have a great Saturday!

Stunning card Julie! I love the contrast between the bright colours of the tree panel and the softer grungy pastel background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

Your card is just gorgeous! I love the gorgeous orange against the background.
And I have to say that your cat Queenie could be a twin to my cat! Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink.
