Around The World On Wednesday September Blog Hop It's A Wonderful Day In The Neighborhood

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday September Blog Hop as we explore our favorite places in the world around us. Whether it is a special place in our local neighborhood or a favorite place we have visited, we will be sharing projects and ideas to reflect our connections with these locations. 
It's so hard to pick just one favorite from all the places I have visited, so in the end I decided to focus on one of my favorite places in the state of Colorado - the Rocky Mountains. There is something so peaceful and soothing about the mountains, no matter the season. For my card design, I created the look of the mountains as they are now, getting ready to change from Summer to Fall. For my design, I chose to use Mountain Air and Grassy Grove stamp sets and I added some texture with the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. Do you love the leaf label? It is a new product in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog and is perfect for the changing seasons. This card design would work well for a variety of occasions and would make a beautiful masculine card design.

This beautiful scenic card design was created by layering stamp images from the Mountain Air stamp set for the mountains and the Grassy Grove stamp set for the trees and foreground foliage. The combination of greens and browns add depth and dimension to the design to create a late Summer/ early Fall landscape that reminds me of the Rocky Mountains. For the sentiment, I used one of the Leaf Labels and heat embossed the sentiment with Copper embossing powder. I also used several of the amber gems to embellish it and add a warm glow to the card design. The background layer was embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder after stamping to add texture to the card. The Linen Thread on the left side of the card front completes the design and adds a rustic feel to it.
