To Infinity and Beyond!

Hey, hey, crafty friends! I can't wait to share a super fun card I created for Release Day with Taylored Expressions! All things "space" are trendy right now, and I love love love this darling stamp set called Space Cadet with all its little outer space critters!

I wanted to try out coloring with pencils on dark cardstock. I've seen this technique done around the internet and I thought it would be fun...and it was! I used watercolor pencils as they seemed easier to blend on the dark cardstock. I started by embossing with some white pearl embossing power, which stood out beautifully and helped me keep the details of the stamped images. The cool background is the new Twinkle Twinkle Background, which I stamped and embossed with platinum embossing powder for a nice shine.

I wanted to make a spinner card and discovered that I could use the 'hoop' portion of the Embroidery Hoop die, which also gave me a built-in stopper. I decided on the cute puppy to orbit my embossed sentiment. My son absolutely loved this card and enjoyed playing with the spinner.

I added a Pinhole Star Stacklet star die-cut from Metallic cardstock. This card was a blast to create and I can't wait to make more cards that are outta this world!
