Happy Monday and welcome to a new edition of the Dueling Darlings monthly show. This month Terry (for the Dazzlers) and LJ (for the Divas) chose the theme and sent out kits for an outer space theme. Terry sent my wonderful kit using the My Favorite Things Space Explorer stamp
and coordinating dies
. I also have this set so I was able to use it to supplement a few things on my cards. Here's what Terry sent: All images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar Crest white and Gina K base weight white (for die cut images). DSP: MME Blastoff, Echo Park Lost in Space, Photoplay Infinity & Beyond, Photoplay Intergalactic. Embellishments: Hampton Art action wobble, Recollections star brads, Recollections bling, Darice baker's twine, Kaisercraft wooden pieces. There was so much in this kit I could probably do half a dozen cards. I made two to showcase.
For this first card I used this week's My Favorite Things Sketch challenge
for additional inspiration.
I used one of the double-sided designer papers for the strips and the banner die cuts are from MFT too. Everything is colored with Spectrum Noir markers including the wooden pieces that I used for embellishments.
For my second card I decided I had to use the action wobble, so this is where I made an extra die cut of this image and fussy cut just the little guy to wobble. The background paper is another of the designer papers included and I used the same paper from the first card for the MFT Double Scallop border. You can also see some of the other fun golden embellishments that were included in the kit. I used a while gel pen for embellishment on the balloons. Here's the inside of this card:
I mimicked the front of the card but used a different sentiment. I also stamped and die cut another rocket for the inside.
I am entering these challenges:
I want to thank Terry and LJ for such a fun theme and especially Terry for the wonderful kit! This was such fun. Check out all the darlings' cards by following the links on the right to see the other fun space cards. Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
