You're Kind of a Big Deal - Mountain Air Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I created using the Mountain Air Stamp Set, and some homemade stencils and masks.  This is a fun little card that would be great for the men in your lives or anyone that you wanted to let know they were a big deal to you.  Here's a look at the card.  I will share how I created it in the blog post below.  

Because you're are kind of a big deal I created this fun little card using some home made masks and stencils with the Mountain Air Stamp Set.

Tips & Tricks: 

I knew that I wanted to use the Mountain Air Stamp Set for my card today, but I didn't want to take the time to clean the stamps and flip them over and stamp in the offset color which is what happens with a Reversible stamp.  But I did want this card to have some color and a very open air feel.  So, I had to think about how I wanted to accomplish that.  So, I decided to make my own masks, and stencils using the coordinating Majestic Mountain Dies.  

Because you're are kind of a big deal I created this fun little card using some home made masks and stencils with the Mountain Air Stamp Set.

The next problem was what to make said stencils and masks from.  I wanted something that I could use more than once so cardstock was out, so was masking paper, and post it notes.  So, I figured why not do them from Vellum Cardstock instead.  The Vellum Cardstock would be sturdy enough to last for a while and super easy to line up since it has a transparent quality.  So, that was it, that was my answer!  I took half a sheet of Vellum Cardstock and cut out the mountain range first.  I could use this as a mask and the negative space as a stencil, and  all I had to do was cut it down to card front size.  Then I cut the tree range and again had the mask and a stencil to play with.  

Because you're are kind of a big deal I created this fun little card using some home made masks and stencils with the Mountain Air Stamp Set.

At this point I pulled in my piece of Basic White Cardstock and my Stamparatus and placed the mountain range where I wanted it on my card and stamped it in Sahara Sand Ink.  I then removed the cardstock and placed the vellum mask over it and taped it into place at the bottom with some Highlighter Tape.  I next used some Bermuda Bay Ink and my Blending Brushes to create the beautiful soft blue sky behind the mountains.  Next I replaced the mask with the mountain range stencil that I made and used some Sahara Sand Ink and a Blending  Brush to add some soft color to the mountains.

At this point I placed the stamped cardstock back into my Stamparatus and Stamped the first row of trees in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I then moved the cardstock up a couple of grid lines on the Deluxe Foam Mat and stamped the trees in Evening Evergreen Ink.  I then moved the cardstock back down one gridline and without reinking the stamp stamped the tree line for the third time. This time because I didn't reink the stamp I got a slightly lighter ink color that worked perfectly for the distance trees.  Now I could remove the stamped panel from the Stamparatus and place the tree line mask in place and do a little ink blending on the foreground with some Sahara Sand and Evening Evergreen Inks.

To finish off the card I stamped You're Kind of A Big Deal (from the Whale Done Stamp Set) in Evening Evergreen Ink. I also stamped the two trees from the stamp set in the same ink but stamped it onto some Shaded Spruce Cardstock before die cutting it.  I placed everything on a Shaded Spruce layer and the Evening Evergreen card base.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day and a wonderful week.  If you need any of the supplies that you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the link in the Stampin' Up! shopping list below.  If your order is over $50 (before shipping and taxes) and you use the host code this month I will send you a little gift as a thank you.  You can always find the latest host code in the side bar to the right on my blog.  Click here to shop with the July 2021 Host Code.
