Lord of the Rings inspired Hobbit Card


Good morning,
Those that know me know that along with being completely obsessed with stamping, I'm a bit of a geek and love fantasy books and films...

Of course that meant I couldn't resist the Glamper Greetings stamp set as it contains the quote "Not all those who wander are lost" which is a line from the poem All That is Gold Does Not Glitter. This is a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien which is found in The Lord of the Rings, and describes Aragorn (son of Arathorn):

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

As soon as I saw this stamp I knew I had to make a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit inspired card! I used the Jolly Friends photopolymer stamp set for the Hobbit (so cute):

And then I used the mountains and trees from the Mountain Adventure stamp set:

The ink colours I've used are:

Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad
Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad
Garden Green Classic Stampin' Pad
Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad
Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin' Pad

I also used Whisper White Cardstock and Basic Black Cardstock.

I am entering this into the
Stamping Sensations Challenge Blog.

I had a lot of fun making something a bit different to the usual flowers and trees greetings cards! Perfect for all those geeky friends and family members. I've just got to decide who to give it to now!
