Blast Off!

Hello all! My hubby just gave me a crash course in Photoshop and I was playing around with a picture of a card and decided to go ahead and post it. Also, notice my new watermark! My hubby also created it for me this evening. I have been wanting to add a watermark to my pictures for a while now, but just lacked the computer know how to make it work. Good thing I am married to an IT specialist!

If you are wondering about the squirrel in the watermark, all I can say is that squirrels are my favorite animal (not in an "I want one as a pet" sort of way, but more in an "I enjoy watching them scamper from a safe distance" kind of way). There were squirrels in the yard at my first grown up apartment and I used to watch them in the mornings while I drank my coffee and ate breakfast and my love of squirrels grew from there.

OK, enough about computers, watermarks, and squirrels! You probably would like to see a card. Well, here you go!

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Blast Off, Outer Space wheel
Paper: Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Raspberry Ripple
Accessories: 2 1/2" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, Color Spritzer, dimensionals

I just love this adorable little set! My son, Isaac, is almost seven and he chose this as "his" set, so that gave me a little extra motivation to order it. He has already stamped a couple of cards with it that I will have to post sometime. It is a great set for little boy cards!

The moon is made with two circles punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch. The top layer was punched with a 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, and a standard office supply circle punch (1/8" inch, maybe?) to create craters. I then used the color spritzer with the Summer Starfruit marker to give it a speckled appearance and popped the top layer up with dimensionals making sure to line it up with the bottom circle.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop back by soon. I have a class this Saturday and all of the cards we are making are my own original designs (first time that has ever happened!). I will be posting them very soon, so be on the lookout!
