Blue Ridge Mountain Scene - Stampin' Up! Picturesque

   It's busy times in the Stampin' Up! world!  We've got the Last Chance list with all the retiring items from 2 catalogs, demonstrator pre-order for the upcoming new annual catalog and a Color Collection Refresh!  So much to keep up with!  

  If you want to order retiring items before they are gone for good and get up to 60% off on some items check out my ONLINE STORE

  My card today features a few retiring items from both the annual catalog and January - March 2023 catalog.  My stampers used all of these products to make this card in class last week.

  We used Crumb Cake for the base then a layer of Starry Sky to back our image panel.

  To make the image we started with a piece of Basic White about 4" x 5.25" and the Picturesque stamp set which is on sale for 50% on the Last Chance list!!!  First we stamped the bottom edge with the one tall tree in Starry Sky leaving an edge of Basic White to create a frame.  Next comes the lower vegetation stamp in Orchid Oasis, then the valley/river in Pool Party and then the distant mountain range in Orchid Oasis.  To get the best result in lining up each stamp you might want to stand up to stamp and be able to look straight down.

  If you end up getting some white space between layers use Stampin' Blends markers to fill in the gaps.

  Once the scene was stamped we used a small blending brush and Pale Papaya ink (retiring soon!) and lightly blended the sky for a bit of a sunrise look.

  Then we used the Stitched Rectangle dies (retiring soon - 30% off in the Last Chance sale!) to cut out the scene leaving a nice white border around the edges.

  We added some In Color baker's twine, the sentiment stamped in Starry Sky ink and then punched out and popped on dimensionals.  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. I ordered this stamp set by accident yesterday...I had intended to get Better Days that's also on sale. When I figured out what I'd done I was a little annoyed because I didn't particularly want Picturesque...but your card has changed my mind and now I'm calling that a happy accident that I ordered it :) Your card is lovely!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
