March Stamp of the Month ~ Birthday Time

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring March’s stamp of the month ~Birthday Time (S1803) a set of 26.

If you are coming here from MICHELLE STEWART’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 25 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

So I am still in love and have not been able to break away from the Stargazer stamp sets so I decided to blend the Stargazer Scrapbooking set with Birthday Time.  

I used a background die that I had in my stash to cut the Pacifica cardstock.  I then chose Canary cardstock to back the Pacifica. I found a flame on my Cricut Subscription which I cut and then trimmed a little to get it to fit with the space ship. I used my silver embossing power on the ship and my markers to color.  For the planets I stamped the Saturn twice once in Ruby and once in Fern.  I cut the Ruby ring out and colored it in, then pieced with the Fern Saturn. I added yellow marker to the other Ruby planet.

I decided to try another background after watching this Video.  So I used watercolor paper and our inks.

I used some washi tape to hold the Water Color paper down. I then used Sapphire ink.  I squeezed the pad together while closed so ink is put onto the top. I then wet the watercolor paper and picked up ink with my brush and painted the paper.  I then did the same thing with Lemon ink but plastered the ink.  I then took my Shimmer Brush and did the same thing as the Lemon.

So for this one I also used the Stargazer Scrapbooking stamp set Fern and Ruby Inks and bitty sparkles.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of March and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Color Dare #177 ~ White, Whisper, Peacock & Crystal Blue

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #177 we are featuring  WHITE DAISY, WHISPER, PEACOCK & CRYSTAL BLUE.

Color Dare 177I love the blues and tried to come up with something which would look great as blues.  Since I have a little boy my thought gravitate to him.  I was looking thorough my Artfully Sent Cricut booklet for boy ideas when I came to page 28 and inspiration took over.

Space ship ~ Outta this world ~ Color Dare 177 ~ Artfully Sent ~ Boy Card ~ CatScrapbooking.comTo create this card I used images #MCBA98 and #M100BC3 from Artfully Sent.  I did this in Design Space and manipulated the cut lines to cut the parts of the images I wanted with out having to cut the full image and only use a part (as I hate to waste my precious paper 🙂 ).

Here is the full list of supplies used:
