Sundays are for Stampin' - August 30th

Happy Sunday and welcome to another edition of Sundays are for Stampin' - certainly the final edition for August, can you even believe it? Almost September? I haven't been inside the Fort Collins, CO, Hobby Lobby in a couple of months, but I just KNOW that their imitation Christmas trees are going to be up already, oh my.

Well, believe it or not, I honored the Sunday stampin' part of my title by actually stampin' the spaceship on this card in the wee early hours today. It was an exceptionally rough week, so I didn't get this card created until a few minutes ago, and if you check the time on this post, you'll see that it's rounding the corner to 6am on 8/30!! Do I get points for devotion? =)

I truly love how this fun card turned out, with the alien/robot/space background paper and especially the QKD spaceship stamp!! I can't wait to catch my son's expression when he wakes up and sees this card!! I thought it would add some cool visual interest to weave some letter beads into the border punch with some scrappers floss. I also added some Glossy Accents to the ship's porthole to make it look like glass, or at least like acrylic.

And for all of the blending I did with Copics to get the green of the ship looking the way it does - and wow, did I ever blend and blend and blend and blend - not one bit of ink bled through the GinaK cardstock; I can't believe how amazing that stuff is, so very worth the price.
