Stampin' Up! Masculine Card with Mountain Air with Cajun Craze

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. This week the Colour Creations ladies in the Art with Heart Team are playing with Cajun Craze. This is one of my least used Stampin' Up! colours, so it definitely was a challenge. Once I got the idea though, away I went.

I wanted to create a card for a very sick relative overseas. We enjoyed time together on their trip to Australia several years ago, so I wanted to come up with a card that let him know I was thinking of him at this very hard time, and that perhaps reminded him a little of Australia. Cajun Craze definitely is the colour of some of the Australian outback, and the Kimberley region especially.

I have used the Mountain Air stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, to create several layers of mountains by stamping in Early Espresso onto Cajun Craze and die cutting with the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. I love the dimension you can achieve with these two products. The trees are from the same stamp set and dies, and my greeting from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.

I adhered these pieces onto a layer of shimmery white which I had applied ink using my blending brushes. The lowest area near the mountain range is Calypso Coral, then I blended in some Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and lastly some Misty Moonlight at the very top and edges. The birds from the stamp set were stamped in Misty Moonlight too.

I then mounted this piece onto some Cajun Craze cardstock, and an Early Espresso base card. I'm really pleased how this card turned out. There was a lot of love put into it, and I think it looks quite peaceful. You can view all of the products I have used in this card using the links at the end of the post.

Such a dramatic, striking, colour combination, Claire. I hadn't thought of Cajun Craze being like the ochre colour of the outback, but it so is!

Catherine Proctor

Claire, this card takes my breath away - it is a work of art! I just love the colours and the way you've created that incredible sky.

Rosa Leyden

What a stunning scene you have created Claire and the colours are so much like the Australian desert outback. Your friend will I’m sure appreciate the thought and reminder of their visit to Oz.

Tina Gillespie

Oooh, sunset over the Kimberleys! Fabulous card, and great use of colour to create your scene.

Jo Reynolds

This is one stunning card, and would have to be my most favourite card I've seen created with the Mountain Air stamp set.

Bev Mortimer

What a stunning card! I love it. I am going to have to CASE your card.
Thank you, Bev
Many Blessings!

Kate Morgan

Oh yes, what a great colour for our Australian outback and great choice of stamp set. I adore your blended sky!

Caroline Manwaring

This would surely evoke some wonderful memories of Australia for your relative, Claire. The sky is so beautifully coloured and it really does have such a peaceful look to the design. Lovely.

Diane Furniss

Great scene card Claire, I have this set but have never used it as yet. I am making an effort to used everything I purchase from now on.

Theresa Gerrard

Oh wow Claire, that ombre background is just stunning and reminiscent of the outback. Makes me want to be able to travel again
