Galaxy Background with So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody,

I am playing again with my new release stamps from So Suzy Stamps. I just can't get my fingers off those wonderful new stamps...

And since Valentin's Day is coming soon, I wanted to make a suitable card. But this one is a bit different from the usual hearts and pink that you generally see. I wanted to make a galaxy background.

I used distress inks - oxides and regular ones for the card. I did get carried away and forgot to take pictures in the process.... but don't worry - there is a myriad of YouTube videos out there you can watch instead.... I also drew some planets onto my background. Once it dried thoroughly, I heat embossed the sentiment and stars.

The wonderful sentiment you can find HERE, the star swirl you can get HERE

Matted it onto turquoise paper.

You may know this already, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
Every month one of our DT members has a birthday you get on stamp with every order free.
This is Tracy's and Suzy's birthday month and THOSE are their stamps:
We also have a sale going on at this month:

Happy Stamping!

Wow! Impressive and beautiful. Love that background and those swirly stars. Even love the planets so artfully arranged. Of course, the sentiment is perfect. I really have to try galaxy backgrounds...they scare me but if you don't try you'll never know, right!

What an awesome Galaxy card you made. Really like how you did the Planets, did you use daubers for them?

The backgrounds I can do, Cornelia, but the addition of the planets takes your card to a higher level. How did you do them?

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
