Mix It Up Monday: Mountain Adventure with a llama

It’s Mix It Up Monday again and time for another project made with a colour combination from my latest set of In Color charts

Have I mentioned that I love llamas? Just a few times perhaps? One of the reasons I ordered Mountain Adventure was because of the llama possibilities - I honestly think these sets must have been made for each other. There will be more llamas and mountains to come, I promise! 

And I’m still enjoying the use of a (so on-trend!) photorealistic background in the form of Serene Scenery DSP. I’ll be running out of sky sheets soon though so will have to come up with another idea.

This project uses a Flirty Flamingo colour combo which, I confess, I had to force myself to use so that I don’t spend all of next spring making cards in Flamingo because I’ve neglected that chart. I’m not a pink fan and Flirty Flamingo definitely isn’t my favourite new In Color. So I’ve toned it down with some Island Indigo stamping.

You know how there are no mistakes in rubber stamping? This card was meant to have just two mountains but, in the time-honoured way, I messed up the stamping of the greeting on the otherwise finished project. After much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I settled on adding a third mountain in the foreground... and this time I stamped my greeting before sticking it down!


  1. A terrific use of this dsp! Looks absolutely perfect as the background for your adorable llama!

  2. Love everything about this card...including the three mountains! lol

    1. Yes looking at it a few weeks later, I can't even imagine it with just two! ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
