My Inky Friends 2018 Holiday Catalog Showcase: Alpine Adventure

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop of the 2018 Holiday Catalog Showcase. My Inky Friends and I have all chosen a favorite stamp set from the recently released Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog to feature on this hop. Just click on the links to hop in a circle to see them all. You may be starting here where I feature the Alpine Adventure Photopolymer Stamp Set, or maybe you came from Rhonda's blog where she featured the cute snowmen from Spirited Snowmen, or maybe you are hopping backwards and are visiting from Tanya's Blog where she showcased Takeout Treats.

When I first saw Alpine Adventure in the Holiday Catalog pdf, I knew it was mine! Again, Stampin' Up! designed a set just for me!

How could I not fall in love? Snowflakes, snowshoes, sleds, skis, and nordic accents. I love it! 

Here is my first project to share:

I love snowshoeing with traditional this card was my immediate go with the set. I used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper along with the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set and the Alpine Sports Framelits. The White background is actually the white woodgrain design from the Festive Farmhouse paper. I love the Mossy Meadow strip with the snowflakes. I also added the plaid and grid strips for an element of fun. I knotted the Mossy Meadow Baker's twine for an extra detail The snowflake is actually layered on the wreath piece from the framelits, with the middle in tact. The Let it Snow sentiment fit perfectly along side the elements! Inside, I stamped a nordic pattern.

My second card also uses the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper:

Growing up in Wisconsin with grandparents who farmed, I love traditional Christmases. This card feels like it came out of my memory bank! I cut the sled out of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder is downright amazing. I used it with the Galvanized Metallic Paper, which is transformed when the folder is applied. I used the wreath, the jingle bells, and the bow from the Alpine Sports Framelits and I hand cut the  banner. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects and are inspired to start working on some Christmas projects!

  1. Your cards are adorable! I didn't get this set. Where I grew up we NEVER had snow. Love your cards. I may just have to buy it now.

  2. Sara, these projects are so pretty. I really love the sled card with the tin tile and red plaid. Gorgeous!

  3. Wonderful cards, Sara! Love the countryish feel they both have. The sled card is my fav! Great job!

  4. The country feel of BOTH these cards makes me smile. LOVE them both. 😍

  5. Beautiful!! I especially love the tin tile background. This is one of my must-have bundles from the Holiday catty, being a rural snow-covered person too. I have never been snowshoeing, but it is on my list of things to try :)
