Ok, when I was thinking of a card with an out of space theme I thought of space travel and the only, ONLY stamp I had with a space ship was from the retired SU set "Pun Fun", which is adorable. I usually go to Pinterest for a bit of inspiration and it didn't disappoint this time, I found THIS card that gave me the idea for mine.
Now, can you guys see JUPITER? Ha!!! When I was embossing the "Moon" and "Mars" I wanted to incorporate Jupiter in this layout, after all, it's the Giant Planet on our Solar System, I wanted to make it as realistic as possible so I grabbed some pencils and markers to try to paint the famous big spot on it but with no luck and then I remember this old wood grain embossing folder I've had for years and in it, there is a part that looks like it could be the spot for my Jupiter, what do you think? I was so darn happy about the way it looks I'm still smiling, seriously!
The little robot is from another adorable, retired SU set called "Lots of Bots", this sets are just perfect to make cards for little kiddos. I stamped it, colored it and punched him out with the retired Postage Stamp punch from SU, I did the same with the sentiment, it's very small but it reads "Happy Birthday, Human", hilarious.
Here is a close up of my little space ship and my awesome Jupiter with it's very famous spot.
This design on the folder is right at one of the edges but there was enough room to make it look great, the space ship is stamped onto Canson water color paper and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter, I added some silver confetti stars and some other "stars" using my silver gel pen.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
The sentiment is old and from my stash, the fireworks are from The Ton and it's called PYROTECHNICS , really fabulous set to have for any occasion.
Here are the pictures of the retired stamp sets I used, this one is "Lots of Bots".
This one is "Pun Fun".
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
