Adventure Awaits - with #3 of the 40 to 40

I am so excited to help promote
Wild Whisper,
the newest company I know on the Craft market.

Heather & Suzy are amazingly talented and inspired, having personally designed all of these pages I am about to use. It takes a lot of courage, energy and effort to design, invest and launch yourself into this creative market. So please take a moment with me to say,

Congratulations Ladies!

To start my project, I opened everything up and stared at it at length waiting for the inspirations.

The double sided 12x12 Adventure Pages are a wonderful heavy weight and are unique because they are lightly coated to maximize the play time and blend-ability of ink and paint.



The recipe & mini Cards are perfect for adding a layer or a pocket.



So now that I have picked my cards and paper and its time to begin.


I cut the word strips from 2 of the pages and I grabbed the card with the bears.
(I LOVE THE BEARS)


Then I played with the postcard on top or making a plaid frame. the frame won! perfection


My next move was to size up the backer of my card  and I decided a full sheet folded worked nicely and offset the frame. Now what to do with the right side and how do I finish the base background. Charred Gold Embossing Powder & some moss. Yep that works. its nice and outdoorsy.




But WAIT............

DO NOT heat the embossing powder.
Use Glossy accents and paint all of the edges thickly with the glue. then pour the charred gold as you go. Allow to dry and you have created the perfect look of dirt.


 I also used the glossy accents to adhere the moss first then sprinkle the embossing powder second.


 I used my Ranger Markers, Crackle Accents and some Aventurine and Red Jasper stones chips to finish up the Bare Branches by Southern Ridge.


I need some more pizazz so I added Tim Holtz Pine cone charms, mixed with Emerald Creek Pine cone charms and some more Jasper stone chips.


For the background I used the top part of the Emerald Creek Wired Stamp & the 2 side tree sets from the Gone Fishin' stamp. They worked so well to create the perspective.




Now to fasten all of the layers together.




Thank you for reading my blog. Be sure to check out Julia Chupik and her Oh Deer Creation on Paradise Lost  head over to the Wild Whisper website to see all of the boutique embellishments.

  14. Wow, what an awesome card! Thank you for sharing so many great tips: incorporating stamping to add perspective to the background, using glossy accents & embossing powder to create the "dirt", adding non-traditional scrapping items like the moss & stone chips - truly wonderful!

  24. Kim, your Use of These products is just amazing! I love how you've combined your beautiful landscape stamps with the Wild Whisper papers and your tip for using the embossing powder and GA for dirt is genius! It looks like a stream bed to me...glittery like the sun is being magnified by the passing water. It's great to see Emerald Creek's pinecones paired with Tim's--it gives me perspective. Yours are my favorite charms, and I've been kind of hoarding them. This is truly a lovely work of art! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    1. Thank you. Alaska is very similar to Alberta, but I have to say, there is something delightfully mesmerizing about Alaska and flying over the mountains, the belugas jumping beside the highway. It was so amazing. Thank you for popping by
