You're Out of This World!

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today’s card was made for my nephew. His birthday was yesterday. I tried to make something that would appeal to an 11 year old boy. I don’t know if I hit the mark or not!

I went with a space theme. I used B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge to cut my rocket ship and little astronaut. Mini Monsters was used to cut my alien monster. I hand cut the ground that they are standing on and used my Cuttlebug and the Spots and Dots embossing folder for some texture. The background paper comes from My Mind's Eye Party Time stack.

Here is a close up of my little guys face. I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to hide his face. I then stamped it with Peachy Keen Stamps PK-642 Boy Mates Face Assortment. I added some silver Stickles to his helmet and then covered his face and helmet with Ranger Glossy Accents. For my monster I decided to give him some googly eyes and only use the nose and mouth of Peachy Keen Stamps PK-692 Monster Mash Face Assortment. I added some Starry Night Stickles to his spots.

My sentiment is fom Scrappy Moms Stamps "A Haunting We Will Go" set. I thought it was perfect for this card. I decided to use black embssing powder to heat emboss it. I love the way it came out!

Some other miscellanous items I used for this card were gems, Black Diamond Stickles, white and black gel pens, foam tape, and my trusty ATG.

Just a reminder, Scrappy Moms Stamps will be giving away an acrylic block to all customers who order this week and put “FCCB” in the instructions to seller sections of Pay Pal.
