Before Christmas a few of my Kindergartners gave me some gifts and I was so excited to work on personalized thank you notes for them. CTMH’s new stamp set called Stargazer was perfect for the little boy cards. I colored the different astronauts hair color to match each recipient. It was so fun (and so easy!!).
If you’ve been here before, you will know that one of my favorite techniques is the emboss resist technique. This little background panel was a breeze to stamp with the various sky pieces included in the Stargazer stamp set. I just white embossed them on some watercolor paper and then quickly brushed some Navy Splash I had leftover from my amuse|studio days. Once the paper dried, I quickly buffed the white embossed images and that really made them pop.
I’m not so keen on my spiky circle at the bottom of the card. I had envisioned it looking a little better but I had thought that might be a fun way to highlight the sentiment. I’ll have to go back to the drawing board for that one but in the meantime, my thank you notes are done. woohoo!
Stargazer is just one of the great new stamp sets available in CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 1 catty. There is a matching Stargazer paper pack that is “out of this world” – ha ha! Get it?! Yeah, weak, I know!
