My card today is sweeping you away to the outdoors!

I used the scene building dies to create the majority of my card.

In the background I added a sunrise with the Sun Background stencil and Dandelion & Papaya ink.

I also added these adorable family of bears hiking their way up the hill.

The sentiment comes from the Classic kit in which I stamped onto my ink blended background.

Such a great woodsy card!

Some more inspiration I wanted to share comes from the regular release.

This is the Graphic Mountains stencil.

I used a sticky mat to hold the stencil down over my cardstock while I ink blended Dandelion, Papaya, Green Hills and Summer Sky ink using a blending brush.

I trimmed the panel down with a rectangle die and added to a panel I die cut using the Scalloped Rectangles.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will head over to check out the kits!


We will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, August 13th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.


Thanks for stopping by today!
