Well I feel honoured to be part of yet another Design Team, this time with Creative Knockouts. So you’ll get to see me playing along with new challenges and using a few different things that I’ve not played with in a while… like digital stamps. I have quite a large selection but I just got out of the habit of using them when I had printer or laptop issues… now those are sorted it will be good to get back to experimenting.
This weeks challenge is to use die cuts and punches and is sponsored by Dr Digi’s House of Stamps.
I chose to use the One Small Step image and teamed it with the fab star background die from Creative Expressions.
I started with the image printing onto Basic White cardstock and then I coloured it using my Stampin Write markers in soft sea foam and smoky slate colours so it is a very soft green with the grey. I did pull in a promarker for the cool grey moon base colour too.
Then I stuck the printed image to another piece of basic white before fussy cutting out. This gave it some sturdiness as I knew I wanted to raise it up with some foam. I also cut out the flag twice from the same image again to give it some dimension.
Onto the flag I stamped the love you from the Funky Fossil stamps. I intend to give this card to my hubby next week (good job he doesn’t read my blogs!) so a simple love you does the job!
Then I grabbed the Big shot and my star cover plate die and ran it through using both black and the glimmer paper from last years SU catalogue.
I cut down the black background into a 4″ square and mounted it onto white cardstock and then pieced back in a few of the glittery stars.
Then mounted the spaceman on the moon onto some foam and added him to the front of the card. I decided then that a glossy accents finish would work best on his visor so added that too.
Really this is a simple card as the die cut does all the work … but so cute to include that fab little space explorer to create the focal image.
