Fly Me To The Moon!!!

Recently received my Summer Stamp Club kit from Magnolia. I wasn't too sure about the kit, as all the previous ones have been so sweet! It also seemed as if we were being given stamps from two different collections, one sports related, and one space related. Well, I decided to take one of the stamps that I thought I was least likely to use an create a card. Here is the card:

If you are at all familiar with the Summer Stamp Club kit, you can see that I ended up using three of the stamps from the kit on the outside. Here is the inside:

I used another of the stamps from the kit on the inside. The DP's are from BoBunny "Blast Off!" collection, and the image is colored with Copics. I also used a Martha Stewart grass punch. Although it doesn't show up very well in the picture, I used Glossy Accents on Tilda's space helmet, and a gelly roll pen on the piping of her spacesuit. It was hard to make a card with Tilda on it and not use flowers and ribbons! LOL!!

I challenged myself, and it worked. I was able to create a card that had me thinking "out of the box" using stamps that I might not have ever used. I am now going to go back to my stamping table and try to create a card with another of the stamps that I did not think I would use.

Thanks for stopping by, and let me know your thoughts on the card.

Cute cards, Deb!!! You managed to pull it all together to make adorable cards with the new kit.
I gave it away...have no use for the stamps because there are no young children in my life!

Your DP is perfect for this image. The card tells a story so simply by just using those 3 images Deb.
