Always an Adventure for PP329

Denise Hoepfner | The Mountain Magpie

I live in Montana, so it’s no surprise that I love the mountains and nature. No matter the time of year here, people do their best to get out and enjoy our wildlands. Hiking, kayaking, skiing, sledding, camping – it’s all right out our front door. Of course, the flip side of recreation is conservation and working to keep our public lands accessible to all.

So, when I saw the Always an Adventure bundle from Stampin’ Up!, I knew it was a must-have for me. And when I saw Joanne’s Paper Players challenge, PP329, the diamond shapes reminded of – mountain ranges!


You’ll notice there isn’t a whole bunch of stamping on this card, just the tent (stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim) and the sentiment, which is from the Places You’ll Go stamp set (stamped in Early Espresso).

For the rest of the card, I used the following card stock:

It’s hard to capture the beauty of mountains — the alpenglow, the bluish-grayish whites of winter, their sheer majesty.

It’s a good thing this adorable stamp set and coordinating Framelits dies don’t even try. Instead, they give you a fun, almost cartoonish card that is sure to make anyone smile.

Thanks for stopping by!

      Thank you, Brian! Once you see mountains, you can’t unsee them. 😉
