Mornin’, y’all – welcome to another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. We’re doing a Theme Hop and today celebrates the Last Blast of Summer! I know that all of us have a different idea about the right way to celebrate the end of summer, so I hope you’ll take the time to check them all out when you’re done here! 🙂
For me – I decided to use two new stamp sets in the 2016 Holiday Catalog. Glamper Greetings and Mountain Adventure go together like beef tips and rice! Here’s what they look like:
Glamper Greetings struck a cord with me when I saw it – my husband and I have long talked of buying an RV and exploring this great country. May not be in the cards for a bit while we’ve still got the horse-kids with us – I’m not a fan of leaving them with people to watch. But, when the time comes, mayhaps we’ll take the plunge. There’ll be some discussion though – motorhome or 5th wheel? Wayne’s a motorhome advocate, I prefer a 5th wheel. More room for my card making – and that’s a non-negotiable piece! 😉
I combined the two stamp sets to create a little mountain lake-side scene that might look just like a spot we’d end up one day. Take a look-see:
I started with a plain Whisper White panel and stamped the mountain image from Mountain Adventure in Crumb Cake Ink. It’s not quite as wide as my panel is, so I used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to extend it to the edge on both sides. There are three sizes of fir trees in the Mountain Adventure set – large, medium and small – so I used all of them to create a forest in the mid-ground of my scene. I used Always Artichoke (really missing my Mossy Meadow for this one!) and with the medium and small trees, I would stamp twice without re-inking – instant distance!
Since this is a mountain lake-side campspot, I made a lake with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I used that Crumb Cake maker again to make some “ground” marks under each of the trees. To finish my meadow, I used the grasses image from Glamper Greetings and scattered it all over in Garden Green ink – sometimes stamping a second time without re-inking.
Then I built my RV! I stamped the outline image in Pacific Point ink on Whisper White. For the detail image – the horizontal lines and the lattice work – I used Pacific Point that I stamped off once. Then I decorated it with a Crumb Cake pie in the window – and colored the pie plate Real Red (who the heck makes a pie in a trailer on vacation?!?). I added a couple of light strands – stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and colored in Daffodil Delight. And the garland under the window is stamped in Flirty Flamingo.
I quickly fussy cut the trailer and got ready to park it in my scene. But, every trailer-house worth the name has a flamingo! So – I stamped the flamingo in Flirty Flamingo (was there any doubt!?) on the card front and again on a scrap piece of Whisper White. I filled the bodies in with Pink Pirouette and then fussy cut just the body of the second flamingo and used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to stick him to my trailer. I popped the trailer on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – making sure that the legs of the flamingo I’d stamped on the card front were visible and right under the flamingo on the trailer.
To finish off my pastoral scene, I added Pear Pizzazz flowers – colored with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker. A Daffodil Delight sun – from Glamper Greetings – and the nice little JRR Tolkien sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink were the final touches. I SNAILd it to a Flirty Flamingo mat and the card front was done!
On the inside, I started with another Whisper White panel and stamped Glamper Greetings grasses in Garden Green and more Pear Pizzazz/Flirty Flamingo flowers. I added a second sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink – and one more Flirty Flamingo Flamingo!
Et Voila! I think this would be a nice way to end a summer, don’t you? Well – maybe not in this particular trailer….if you know me you know I’ve got champagne taste – so my trailer will be about….three times longer and bigger! Wait – this one would work as my craft-room trailer! 🙂 Anywho – this could be a retirement card, a friendship card, a “boy, do we need a vacation!” card! Hope you like.
Be sure to consider Glamper Greetings and Mountain Adventure when the catalog goes live on 1 Sept! That’s just around the corner, y’all! 🙂
