I wish you a happy birthday, human!!

May 18, 2016

Hi there!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time!!
I am so happy to be sharing with you this card since I had a very good time making it!

I love creating scenes in my cards and today, I mixed some stamps and dies to create this! A cute allien wishing you "Happy birthday" by Skype?? Why not?? :))


You can find this super fun alien in "Blast off" stamps set. The sentiment is from "Alien invasion" stamps set and the planet I stamped on the card too. The cute stars are from both sets. 


Firstly, I stamped the computer from Mama Elephant, I masked it and I stamped the allien. Then, I coloured it as well as the rest of the stamps. I thought it could be fun to stamp part of a planet on a card masking it too. Once I had everything coloured, I die cut the rest of the stamps and I started thinking about how to display the scene. Most of the elements have got foam to give them some dimenssion.

I decided to stamp the sentiment with two colours following the combo I had choosen for this card and I used some borders dies to give some interest to the panel and the card base.
I don't know why but I can't finish a card without Wink of Stella Clear!! :-))  It's not easy to take the picture with this shine but I think you can imagine! 


I believe this is a different way to use these stamps that are mainly thought to make space or galaxy cards. Or at least, it is the first idea that come to your mind when you have these stamps in your hands! 

I think these sets have lots of possibilities!!! 

See you soon, human and enjoy the rest of the week!! ;)
