[Waltzingmouse Blog Party] Have a Blast on Your Big Day...

Hello everyone! It's time for another party, and this time I planned ahead. I was so sad when the last two parties snuck up on me and I was so swamped with work that I didn't have any more time to create anything. This month's theme is very practical, because I always find myself running out of these... Birthday. Yep, those I never have on hand. My mum also decided to commission a card for a one year old boy. So I thought I better pull out my Half-pint Heroes... 

Have a Blast on your Big Day
Stamps: (Way Out West, Half Pint Heroes) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock -Kraft) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger; (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (3/8" Topnotch Twill Tape - Fine Linen) Papertrey Ink; (Yellow Airmail Washi) Freckled Fawn


All this new grunge hitting Waltzingmouse Stamps, made me want to make a "dirty" background. I tried stamping off the mountain range from Way Out West, and then stamping onto the card stock to get the lighter ones towards the top.

I colored this rocket up in some bright yellows & orange, and thought the yellow airmail washi could also double as "construction / warning" tape to draw some attention to the sentiment. I think it goes quite well with the rocket.

I also stamped the a sentiment on the twill ribbon. Twill by itself is great, it can be dressed up, or dressed down. It also acts like a blank canvas (especially the Fine Linen twill), don't you think?

So, I'm off to head to bed, but can't wait to see your l
ovely creations soon...Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of what's left of this month! Summer is flying by so quickly, how will you make use of the remaining months?

Oh Ren-Yi! I think that moon rock background is amazing - you would have laughed to see my nose about an inch from the screen trying to figure out how you did it! Very clever! Love your little guy in the rocket - bet your mom is so happy and proud to have such a talented daughter! So neat!

What a fabulous scene you have created for your little space cadet. Your grungy background is perfect for this card and I love the way you stamped on your twill. Awesomely creative.

Out of this world ! Love the construction site feel of the twill tape over the washi tape and the background too. But that little guy in the rocket is sure to put a smile on any young boy's face.

What a fantastic "moonscape" you made for your card!! I love the colors you used on the rocket too, and your use of washi tape: such a fun card!!

Nerina said...

There is so much to look at and love on your beautiful card! I can't believe what a great job you've done on the background - that is so eyecatching! Your finishing details are darling - I love the starry sky and moon being left as outlines only - they support but don't overpower your focal point!
