Hello Blogging Friends,
These are the stamps sets that I will be using:
Here is my first card:
For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card. I took a piece of paper from the Lemoncraft 6 x 6 paper pack and added that to the card base. I took some watercolor paper and some Memento Black ink and stamped the flamingo from the Joy Clair Be A Flamingo stamp set onto the paper. I colored it in with Copic markers and then I cut it out using the Gina Marie Designs Big and Little Pierced Chain Rectangle die. I decided wither I wanted to place the sentiment and stamped that with black ink. I then took a piece of coral paper and mounted the flamingo onto the paper and then cut it out with the next size up rectangle die. I then took some DL.ART Pink Hue crinkle ribbon from the Mermaid's Tale First Edition bundle and made a bow and attached that to the top left hand corner of the card.

I made my next card with the Joy Clair Out of this World stamp set:
For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card. To make my background look like outer space I used some distress inks to make the background. I got out my distress inks, my blending tool, watercolor paper and my craft mat.
I took my Picked Raspberry distress ink, blending tool and watercolor paper and rubbed some ink onto the paper.
Then I took the Blueprint Sketch distress ink and my blending tool and rubbed on some of the blue ink being sure to overlap it into the pink area.
I took the Seedless Grape distress ink and the blending took and rubbed that onto the rest of the paper.
Then I took some Black Soot distress ink and my blending tool and blended the black ink all around the edges and lightly over the whole thing to make it look like the night sky.
When that was done I spritzed my paper with some water and then sprinkled coarse salt over the paper and let it dry.
I love the way the salt makes the ink look when it dries! Really adds to the background!
After the background was done I took another piece of watercolor paper and my black ink and stamped the earth, moon and spacedships from the Joy Clair Out of this World stamp set onto the paper and then colored them in with Copic markers and then fussy cut them all out and arranged them on the card. I took the sentiment and stamped that with Versamark and then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!
