Up, Up & Away with 2 Cute Thursday!

Hey y'all! I'm back with another 2 Cute Rubber Stamps card for you this week! With all the fireworks going off for 4th of July, it got me thinkin' about rocket ships, so I decided to use this awesome little digi stamp called Up, Up & Away rocket ship. You can find it right here in digi form or right here in cling cushion. I just love that the fabulous Heidi offers her stamps in several different ways, don't you?!

So, as usual, I used my Prisma pencils to color the image & then used Dimensional Magic by Mod Podge to simulate the glass window on the rocket. I love that you can see it in the closeup photo! I also used my new fave cardstock to color on, the Heavenly White Premium Ultra Smooth cardstock from The Paper Temptress....absolutely fab paper and superb for blending a variety of coloring techniques too! The patterned paper is Love, Elsie I believe and the other cardstock is Making Memories (blue) & DCWV (yellow). Thread is Bazzill, dimensional sticker is Miss Elizabeth, & the ink is Studio G. The buttons, punch, ribbon, & crepe paper are from my stash.

And speaking of the crepe paper, I loved using it to jazz up this embellishment to make it more of what I wanted! It was super easy. I just cut my crepe paper the right width & length, used some Aileens Fast Grab Tacky Glue (LOVE this stuff!) on the back, and adhered it - ruffling as I went. It really made it stand out and blend with my color scheme more...plus, it is a great way to make better use of your stash too! Totally loving the crepe paper ruffles right now! Now, if you have a moment, please hop on over to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps DT site & check out all the amazing inspiration! The gals are super talented and we have some new ones for you to welcome on board too! Plus, stay tuned for some exciting news to come to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps world! Happy Craftin'!
