You're Out of This World

This week's Free for All challenge on Splitcoast was to create a card using colors that are opposite one another on the color wheel. What a fun one! I got side-tracked by many things today, but finally had a small block of time (while DH was reading to DS) to finish up this card using these color-wheel-opposites: bright blue and orange.
Isn't this a fun card?? It's also for the current DeNami Design Product Challenge to use Patterned Paper. Easy peasy!! I didn't have to look any further than an old DCWV Mat Stack for this absolutely-perfect-for-my-outer-space-scene star patterned paper. That cute rocketship and the rocket exhaust "flames" are both stamps from DeNami Design. Surprised? The flames are actually a decorative crest that I turned upside down! I thought the crest would be just perfect for getting my point across (and I always get a kick out of using stamps in unintended ways.)

To create the craters on my lunar surface, I stuck a button (well, three different sizes in turn) to my finger with a glue dot and stamped crater-like rings from the inked rim of the buttons. Loved how this turned out!

The sentiment is computer-printed from a Chickengirl Design "You're Out of this World" digi stamp. A couple of loop punch strips along the sides and a bit of Mandarin baker's twine from The Twinery and this cute boy card is DONE!

This card is also for Wee Memories Challenge #57, creations using stamps. As you can see, I used two awesome DeNami rubber stamps for this creation. :)


Thanks for dropping by to check out my little slice of bliss for today! I have another card to share with you soon, hopefully tomorrow. So I'll see you back here then!

Emily, you are so clever to use a damask for the rocket flame!! I love blue and orange together. It's one of my favourite combinations and looks wonderful here. The mandarin baker's twine sure is delicious! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Love the starry sky and your "moon scape" - well done! Delightful card :) Don't think we'll luck out with sunshine this weekend...yuk! I'll take cloudy over rainy if that's all we get!

Love the little scene, thought at first it was the PTI rocket, but as I can actually read, good to see you're getting some fun DeNami stamps.

So adorable! Love that patterned paper with the rocket ship :) Thanks for joining us at DeNami Design!

onecraftymama said...

Ahhhh! That is so cool, how you created the lunar surface. I totally have to craft-lift that, since I just got some cool rocket ship stuff myself. I never ever would have thought of that!
Orange & blue is my 12yo's favourite colour combination these days - it just pops & yells "woohoo!" to me :)

this is so fabulously cute....every detail is perfection

Colleen Dietrich said...

I think this is so very clever. I like how you used that DeNami motif to create 'fire' from the rocket. And your moon is cute, too! I like the whole scene.

Anita said...
