Mountain Adventure by Stampin’ Up!

Dream Theme Blog Hop


Welcome to the first Dream Theme Blog Hop. It’s a monthly blog hop featuring some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators from around the world. This month we are sharing amazing, inspirational Christmas projects. Currently you’re visiting me, Tracy May from London, UK. To continue along the blog hop, please use the links below.

I have been having another play with Mountain Adventure by Stampin’ Up! This set screamed shaker card to me and finally I managed to get back in the craft room and pull it together. I just had to go with a watercolour background for the sky.

I used masking fluid to protect the mountains and splattered some across the top to create the snow storm effect. The sky is painted with a mix of Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy and (ahem not very modest of me) I love it!

I used Silver Dazzling Details on the mountain peak to add some extra sparkle. The house is cut out and popped up on a Stampin’ Dimensional for a 3D effect. I used silver sequins from the current metallic sequins assortments and added a few retired snowflakes I had left over. What do you think? I think Mountain Adventure by Stampin’ Up! is turning out to be one of those really versatile stamp sets.

Anyway I really hope you like my project. Please do hop along to see what my lovely and fabulously talented friend Delphine has made and keep hopping around the wonderful creations from the rest of the Dream Theme Design team!

Mountain Adventure by Stampin' Up! Tracy May #CCMC427


Hey it’s Thursday again and once again the whole week has run away from me! I need to get a new routine organised for all my other commitments, but I’m getting there slowly! Take a look at this week’s fabulous sketch challenge from Connie & Mary! I do really love their sketches! You will probably think me odd, but the pointy bit of the sketch made me think of mountain peaks! I don’t know why. Maybe I was looking at it upside down or something?

Anyway, that decided the choice of stamp set for me! Mountain Adventure by Stampin’ Up! I have a friend who lives in the French Alps and we have been over a few times to visit her and her husband so this card is perfect for them for Christmas! They are the reason I bought this set in the first place! LoL!

I hope you like the card! It was fairly easy once I had cut the Whisper White card front to size. I simply stamped the scene by eye and coloured the cabin with a blender pen and ink from the ink pad lids. Then I  used Soft Sky for the snow.

I stamped the skis from the set across the bottom of the Mint Macaron card base then stuck the panel to the top and that is pretty much it. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture but there is a thin line of glitter along the cables for the cable cars!

Do pop over and see what the rest of the design team have come up with. You won’t be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by!
