Here is my creation this week:
The card base is brocade blue. I punched stars with stampin' up!'s star punch and adhered them to my card base with tombo mono multi glue. This really gave the base dimension, I think. What an easy way to adorn a card.
The bottom panel is certainly celery wheeled with see you around in certainly celery. This month is Free Wheelin' month....if you buy pun fun you get a free jumbo wheel - sweet stars which I love but didn't want stars on the top and bottom so I used the free jumbo wheel that comes with year after year in the Free Wheelin' promotion. I really like the fact that the wheel images are interchangeable with different sets but blend seamlessly! I put a thin piece of chocolate chip where I would have normally put ribbon. I intend this card to go to a little boy so I didn't want to use ribbon. I know.....I hear what you are saying....two cards this week without ribbon?!?!?!??!? I don't know what has gotten into me. I gotta get back to the ribbon and bling!!! I miss it!!!!!
The cute rocket was inked up with jet black staz on ink. Notice the sentiment wasn't stamped right under it...where it is intended to be on the stamp. Usually I cut the sentiments apart from the images but this set I didn't so that. Every once in a while I throw myself a wrench and do something unexpected....like this. So what I did was took a piece of blue painter's tape (any piece of tape would work....painter's tape was closest in my reach....LOL!) and taped over the sentiment and then inked it up. Now this is the IMPORTANT part......remove the tape before stamping!!! (trust me...if you forget to remove the tape good things will not happen! :) )Voila! Stamped without the sentiment! I water colored it with my aquapainter and ink refills. I did some shadow coloring around the rocket with going grey. Don't forget to shadow around images to give them some dimension. I did put crystal effects on the little window...I couldn't get a good picture of that...but trust me it's there and it looks super cute! I matted that onto so saffron and then chocolate chip. I adhered that with stampin' dimensionals. (big shock there, huh?)
I then cleaned my rocket stamp with staz on stamp cleaner. This stuff is amazing!!!! For the sentiment I inked it up with my black stampin' write marker and stamped it onto whisper white. I punched it with the word window punch and adorned it with two stars in brocade blue and so saffron.
That's it for today. Now....go stamp! hehehehe!
