Beam me Up!

Hi! I saw this stamp set from Lawn Fawn and just knew I had to have it! There is so much inspiration out there, I felt I just had to make a slider card.

I stamped out all of the images from the set and decided to color them in nice bright colors using my prismacolor pencils. I then used the coordinating Beam Me Up Lawn Cuts to die cut them out.

For the background I used chipped sapphire and wilted violet distress inks in patches, and then gently inked some black soot distress ink over the top - so that you could still see a hint of the colors underneath. I then spritzed it with water, left it for 10 seconds and dabbed the water off with my kitchen paper. I love the look it leaves behind - almost starry.

I decided I wanted my little alien to be 'beamed up' into the spaceship and so made this into a slider card. I used Lawn Fawn's 'Slide on over' die to cut out the hole in the front of the card for the slider channel - remember to add the cut out piece to the slider so the design and color would match. You also need to remember to color the same behind the slider piece, so that when it is pulled up it is not just white cardstock behind it. I added the little 'pull' stamp from Lawn Fawn's 'Push Here' stamp set (covering the 'here' part of the stamp as it wouldn't fit!), on the top of the slider so that the recipient knows that it is an interactive card.

I love how this turned out - super cute!
I stamped the 'beam' from the set using Versamark Watermark ink and then heat embossed it with Lawn Fawn's new 'Glow in the Dark' embossing powder - super fun!
I used some grassy edge border dies and Doddlebug Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot papers for the grass and banners. The sentiments are from the Beam Me Up stamp set, and then a few sequins finish the card off!
