You’re out of this world!

Eeeeek – how darn cute is this card? Now I’ll be honest, this card first grabbed my youngest son’s attention before it did mine. He is absolutely mad about anything to do with space – rockets, the planets, stars etc. But when you look at it, how can you not add it to your shopping basket?

Now for this particular card, I promised my son that I would make it so that the astronaut was based on him, but there is also the option for a little girl too (oh and don’t forget the dog!). I chose to colour mine in with blends, then fussy cut them. I’d had an idea for background in my head that was just rhinestones as stars, but I changed my mind and use the star stamp in the set with some heat embossing for a gorgeous starry sky.

I did add some rhinestones into the final design, which I think give it that twinkle that you associate with stars. Finished with a heat embossed sentiment and some beautiful silver cord and it all comes together to make a beautiful card. Love it!

Did you see this set in the catalogue, if yes what have you made with it?

Floral Thanks

I first made this box on the day my pre-order from Stampin’ Up! arrived. The grey background on the paper with the bright colours instantly drew me in. I didn’t know what I was going to make, but knew it had to be with that particular pattern. The grey background contrasts beautifully with Coastal Cabana, so that formed the colour theme of my box.

Using Fine Art Floral and some two step stamping, the picture really shines on the box. The colour theme also allowed me to bring out one of my favourite sets in the Annual Catalogue – Playing with Patterns, using both the embellishments and the ribbon.

And the best part? The darker shades on each of the flower heads is the same stamp. It has been designed to work with all three flowers, which I think is pure genius! And the box itself, well as the video shows – this can be made in bulk as it’s easy peasy to put together.

Which colour do you prefer, Coastal Cabana or Real Red?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
