I also added a little crystal Stickles to the Rocket window, wings & flames, just enough so it's still "boyish". I hand cut the "moon" and ran it through the Cuttlebug.
With no coloring, this card came together super quick! And adorable to boot, I think!
Have a "over the moon" day! :)

So now lets say you, or your child, has a birthday party to go to. You'd normally want to create a cute, one of a kind card just to slip in the box right?! Well, how about a little note card like this then?! I mean sometimes, like me, you run out of time creating the gift that you need something fast to add to let them know who the thoughtful person was that gave such an awesome gift right? Perfect for the sentiments .... just a simple "happy whatever" sign your name and you're golden! YEAH! Oh and since this is too small to be mailed I carried the theme over to the envelope too!
I used Stamping Up cardstock and little notes for the card bases. The sentiment on the first card is an old, old SU stamp that I think I inherited (love when that happens) I colored my images with my Koh-I-Nor pencils and Gamsol. The star brads are from Making Memories as well and the sparkles are "stickles"! Even cute Aliens need a bit of bling right?!!
So, what are you waiting for?! Go get your own "Hip Aliens" stamp set, create your own cards and post a link back here to show just how "outta this world" you can get too! I not only dare you...I triple dog dare you! LOL! Here's more temptation for you too - they're on sale 25% off! Run, don't walk..... I'll be waiting!!

Are you ready for some Royal Wednesday fun? We have a new treat for you starting this week, the Queen Kat Royal Blog Hop.
This week's fun challenge is paper piecing. Paper piecing is an awesome way to accessorize your stamped images. What a awesome way to make use of all the pattern papers you have hanging around.
Here is our first sample this week from Royal Stamping Maid Tina, she used the Mini Sweets set for this card.
Be sure to HOP on through this week's Blog Hop for lots of Queen Kat fun. You don't want to miss a single blog because you don't know where fun "treats" may turn up.
We hope that you will play along with this challenge this week. Feel free to leave your links here or swing on by our forum at SNR and play along.
Your next stop on the Royal Blog Hop is TINA. So hop along....

This set is perfect for so many different occasions.
I love how adding some lace makes it perfect for some 'girly' cards, but at the same time you can keep it simple for the perfect 'boy' card....I'll make one of those and upload it in a bit!
Until then, just know that I'm SENDING you ALL a little LOVE!! Have a GREAT weekend!
I used the set called "Hip Aliens" which, by the way comes with 4 stamps each one featuring the cute little aliens! The card base is the Basic Black from SU, the first layer of grey is SU, the glittery paper is a scrap from a huge pad of paper I had a while back (I actually keep my scraps!!). The stars are all made using the star punches from SU, the star shaped brads are from Making Memories. I used my Nestabilities to cut out the shape, first time embossing with Nestabilities too! I colored the whole image with my Koh-I-Nor pencils and Gamsol!
So what do you think?! Can't you just see these images being used for fun cards, invitations for an Area 51 birthday party, how about scrapping with them using the title "Outta This World" or "My Hip Alien(s)"?! There are so many possibilities! I hope you check them out and try some ideas for yourself!
Until next time...Nannoooo Nannoooooo!

Another block of coordinating paper was matted and then I knotted the ribbon on the front and adhered. Don't you just love the selection of wide ribbons available now?!
The tree was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black, then colored with copics. I added the grass at the base of the tree trunk just by swiping at it with my markers. Lastly, I adhered the prima flowers with a brad and a glue dot.
Have a happy Thursday!
