Everything But the Kitchen Sink

Everything But the Kitchen Sink

Today’s card feels like I threw everything but the kitchen sink into it. We’ve got alcohol inks, punches, dimensional glue and pop up windows here. It could be a grand mess of a card, but I think it works.

Let’s start with the outside.

Here, a spaceship is stamped and colored and fussy cut, and mounted on pop dots over the background. The background was created by pouncing alcohol inks in stream slate and pearl on glossy coated cardstock. I used a metallic ink to stamp some stars on the background, and also added a few tiny punched stars in a gold foil tissue paper. I really like how it came out personally.

The interior features another of those stamped transparencies I showed you earlier this week.

And a pop up window! How’s that for fancy? 😉

I used my Creative Memories oval cutter to trim the transparency to an oval that fit within the window. The card parts were part of a set I got years ago, and they’ve been gathering dust for ages.

Putting this together made me realize I’d rather design my own window card than use a prepared set, so I’ve got a set of ten cards left that I can give away. If you’d like them for yourself, leave a comment below, and I’ll pick someone to send them to.

As a reminder, I am sending out these cards to those of you on my mailing list who send me your addresses. First step to getting one of these cards? Sign up above for my mailing list!

I love giving the post office work.

  1. Are they difficult to put together? This looks like a really cute idea, but do you think starting from scratch would be easier or just more fun?

  2. It’s not difficult to put together, I just had to make adjustments to it because of what I wanted to use for the center piece. I find making my own a more fun project.
