To The Moon and Back

One of the things I often tell my son is that I love him to the moon and back.  He then responds with "I love you to Jupiter and back", to which I respond "I love you to Saturn"...you get the picture.  It always ends with Pluto because his 6-year-old mind can't imagine anything beyond our solar system.  All of this to say that when I saw the new Love You to The Moon stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue it went directly to the top of my Wishlist.  Here is the set:

Love You to the Moon (133143)

And here is the cute card I made with it...inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, but didn't actually pin, so I can't give credit to the original artist.  Her card was MUCH better than mine and used several non-Stampin' Up products...I simplified it quite a bit and used only SU products.

Valentine's card featuring the Love You to the Moon and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.
Wouldn't you know that my son came to see what I was working on while I was making this and when he saw it he immediately asked if that card was for him?!  Of course I said yes!

Actually I made it intending to use it as one of the Make-n-Takes at my monthly team meeting last night.  The meeting ended up being postponed because we are under a blizzard warning and a wind chill warning here, so it will keep till next week.  If you want to recreate it yourself here is a quick how-to:
  • The background is stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Encore Silver Metallic ink.  I just stamped the spatter image repeatedly all over the Basic Black card base.
  • The moon is a partial circle in Basic Gray, cut with the Circles Collection framelits.  I stamped all over the die cut using Versamark ink and the larger spatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I then sponged the edges of the die cut moon with Basic Gray ink.  Then I sponged the entire thing with Illuminate Glimmer Watermark ink...it gives the moon a soft, shimmery glow.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black Staz On and then die cut using the Deco Labels framelits.  I coloured the rocket and the moon with markers and added a bit of Epic Day Washi Tape.
  • The little heart in the moon is punched from Real Red card stock using the small heart punch.
  • On the inside I used another image from the Love You to the Moon set, as well as a Full Heart punched from Silver Foil paper and a star punched from red Glimmer Paper.
