An Out of This World Birthday

 My sweet little grandie is obsessed with space so this is the card I made for her for her birthday. I specifically bought this suite of products with her in mind!

Here is what I have used:

Stamps: Reach For The Stars

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark

Card/Paper: Basic Black, Basic White, Stargazing DSP

Tools: Reach For The Staars Dies, Heat Gun, Static Pillow, White Embossing Powder, Paper Snips

The background was made from fussy cutting the planets and putting onto another sheet of DSP.  Not visible in the photo is the astronaut was sparkly from the Wink of Stella.

TGIF Inspiration Photo

 I've played along with tgifc447 today which was an inspiration challenge from this picture.

Tools: Modern Oval Punch, Cheery Patterns Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Bough Punch

I fussy cut the flowers from the DSP but the sentiment is from the stamp set which is going on the Last Chance list from 21st November so if its on your wish list don't miss out!

Happy stamping,
