You Are Out Of This World

Hi crafty friends!
Stacey back with you today to share a card that I created using some fabulous dies that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I have been seeing a lot of Galaxy type backgrounds lately and I thought it would be fun to give it a try and create a card with this technique. 

I started out by gathering all my distress inks that I wanted to use.

The colors of distress inks that I used were: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. 

Next I stamped my images from the Lawn Fawn Out Of This World stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Please forgive the dark pictures, it was night when I was creating this card.


Next up, I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Out Of This World dies to cut out my stamped images.


They line up perfectly!

Here is a look at my finished card:


To create my moon, I free hand cut a domed shape and used a hole punch to cut out some "craters". I placed some cardstock behind the moon a little bit darker so that the holes had some dimension. I popped up my astronaut and planets with some foam tape and added a bit of shimmer to my vellum for just a bit of sparkle. 

Here is a look at the Dies R US products that I used on my card today:
