One of my personal challenges is to make as many cards and designs as possible from a single stamp set. To give my stamps the maximum love i challenged my self to make at least 10 cards from a stamp set. The MFT’s Space Explorer stamps are so cute and the sentiments are so versatile that one could just keep on going…

The first thing I did was to stamp, color and fussy cut all my images. I think i have a few images from Lawn Fawn’s Out of this World stamp set as well (I like to mix brands for more fun). I also coated all the images with my wink of Stella glitter pen, because the fact is that there is huge amount of glitter in the space and that’s what makes the sun, moon and the stars shine… lol
For this card i blended Distress Inks on watercolor paper and flicked some white paint on it to make the galaxy. I love how the galaxy came out on this card.
This card is a Clean And Simple one. All i did was brush the galaxy with water colors, adhere the images and black heat emboss the sentiment. Vola! a card is ready.
I just love how this astronaut is floating amidst so many planet and stars. The oval die cut background symbolizes the expanding galaxy. The galaxy is made with distress oxide inks and clusters of stars have been die cut to add interest.
My Gansai Tambi watercolors arrived and i had to rush to my craft table to make a galaxy using those. The intense pigment gives a rich look to the galaxy and helps the images colored with copic markers pop against the background.
When i saw that sentiment “today the world revolves around you”, all I could think of was a spinner card. In this card the world literally goes around the cute astronaut . How cute is that!
CARD #6 & 7
After floating about in the space for quite sometime, those astronauts landed on some new planets. I wish they discover a planet where crafting burns most calories. I will turn skinny in just a few days…
I just can’t get enough of the pop up box card. There’s something really charming about how a flat card pops open into a dimensional box card. The floating astronaut is just perfect for these types of cards.
This astronaut image is particularly best suited for a spinner card as it has the same shape in the front and back (one need not stamp a mirror image).
Shaker’s gonna shake – shake – shake – shake – shake
I just love making a shaker card. Well truth to be told, i have seen so many crafters on Youtube heat emboss an acetate sheet that i was fooled to think it was easy. Well my first two acetates warped so much i just could not stop laughing at myself. Third time definitely is a charm and i managed to get it right.
