Don’t Go, by UFO!


I created a second card this morning using my new Rockets and Rayguns stamp set by TPC Studio. For this card I decided to feature one of the adorable aliens in the set along with the UFO that is included too.

Rockets and Rayguns

 

After I stamped the stars in Versamark ink and clear embossed them  I colored over the top of them with a yellow alcohol marker. Next I stamped the UFO and then the alien and clear embossed them as well. In order to create the tractor beam I masked off the area I wanted to be yellow with two strips of paper and releasable adhesive. Then I sponged it with my Distress Ink.  I used the reverse of that to sponge the purple and I just used caution when I sponged near the UFO since I hadn’t masked it off. The sentiment is stamped first with Hero Arts Neon Green ink and then stamped again in Staz On black.

Everything was looking pretty good but, the card just wasn’t as cute as I imagined it would be. But then, I added a heart shaped brad and googly eyes and I think that did the trick.

I doodled in a few aliens into the flight deck of the ship before covering it with Glossy Accents. 🙂

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  1. I found your blog when I Googled the name of the stamp set. I love the scenes you’ve made with this stamp set. I have it but I haven’t felt super-inspired by it until seeing your cards. I make a lot of cards for Operation Write Home and this design would be just perfect for them. Thanks for sharing.

    • I’m glad you were inspired by seeing the stamps “in action”. It always helps me too when I can see some finished examples of a particular stamp set.
      I hope you will consider signing up for my blog feed. I will check out your blog too. My son is leaving for Army basic training one week before his 18th birthday and I have begun to create cards for OWH too.
