Let the Adventure Begin–Crazy 4 Challenges #462


Hi, all and welcome to my final card as Guest Designer for the Crazy 4 Challenges Challenge! It’s been a ton of fun and I hope they’ll have me back again! Here’s this week’s challenge: “Last week, on the 17 th, it was Take a Hike Day. Be inspired by a hiking theme. You could create a scenic card or have one with hiking boots. Use your imagination to create a card related to hiking.”

OK, I have exactly zero stamp sets related to hiking so I did an outdoors-y design instead using
MFT’s Beary Big Adventure Stamp Set and Die-namics. If was suggested to me that my sweet bear is taking a break from hiking—totally works for me, LOL!

I began by creating my sky background using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Blue Breeze dye ink and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base after stamping the sentiment. Then I added Snow-Capped Mountains Die-namics, minus the snow, and Grassy Edges Die-namics for the foreground.


The images were all stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring Card Stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and added to the scene. Foam tape was used for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to see you playing along at the
Crazy 4 Challenges blog this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, too!
