Rocket Ship

I received these adorable Cat's Pajamas stamps last Thursday, but I only had a chance to break them open today. With this ridiculous cold and other assignments, I just didn't get to them. So I hope you don't mind seeing some love themed cards after Valentine's Day. I was never a fan of V-Day anyway. If you love someone, let them know whenever and frequently, not when the industry wants you to! This card uses both Puppy Love and Loving Mew. The rocket ship and saying are from Puppy Love, the 3 heart circle backgrounds are from Loving Mew. I coloured the rocket ship with SU! markers, then outlined it with a 10% cool grey prismacolor marker. I really love that effect on retro-style images, like these ones. I made my background paper by stamping the 3 heart circles in red craft ink, then embossing with gel-a-tins' ruby slippers gelly glitter. The sentiment was cut out with a word window punch, then I used the circle punch trick to get a nice mat for it.

Stamps: Loving Mew, Puppy Love
Ink: Palette Noir, Basic Grey, Real Red
Paper: White, Black, Red, Basic Grey
Accessories, etc.: Black organdy ribbon, pop dots, word window punch, 1/2'' circle punch, prismacolor marker, ruby red gelly glitter.


  1. So cute! Love the color combo and layout.

  2. This is adorable, Natasha! And I totally agree with you re: V-Day! We should show our love year round. : )
