Die-Namite Blog Hop

Welcome to the Die-Namite Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Kirsten Desorcy's Blog.}   We have 14 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our Die-Namite Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

Did you hear about the incredible sale we are having over at Close to My Heart?  During the month of March, you can buy retired and current thin cuts at 25% off the retail price for individual thin cuts or 30% off the retail price of thin cut bundles. Click here to see this promotion.

We have lots of thin cuts to choose from.  I really wanted to work with the Stargazer Paper Pack (X7229B) so I chose to use the Stargazer Cardmaking Stamps and Thin Cuts (Z4157)

I found some instructions on Splitcoast Stampers to make this card and it will fit into a 4.25" x 5.5" envelope.

Here is my card:

I love how it came out.  Here is a link to the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers. 

My astronauts, rocket and telescope are colored with Shin Han markers.  I used Barely Beige for the skin with a touch of Tender Pink for the cheeks.  The blue I used is Turquoise Blue.  I used Carmine, Warm Gray 04, Golden Yellow, Pastel Green (for the blonde hair and rocket fire - looks yellow), Clay for the other astronaut's brown hair, and Marigold.

I also added a touch of Clear Shimmer Brush (Z3293) to my stars to give them a little shine.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

You can purchase this stamp/thin cut set as well as any of the supplies listed above on my website.
