I love the alphas from Mama Elephant, and the new Inline Letters stamp set and matching die are no exception. For some reason these letters remind me of the "Hollywood" sign, and then I came up with the idea of having the letters placed in front of some mountains, similar to the famous sign:
I first cut the inline letters, then stamped them the traditional way. Kryssi has a quick video showing her technique for stamping these letters perfectly onto the diecut pieces here. I will remember to do this next time, but the offset letters on this card sort of add to the rustic, homespun feel. Inking them up a bit with a distress ink afterwards also helped lend a rustic feel.
I stamped the homes (from the SC Cinnamon Spice Kit) multiple times so that I could allow the mountains to be layered. Just simply stamp on the base layer, add a couple mountains, stamp again and repeat for the top layer of mountains. I also inked up the edges of the mountains to add more depth. The gold glitter paper for the snow-capped mountains is just the perfect touch to add a little sparkle to this homespun card.
