Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast & I chose Lynne as the newest Featured Stamper (FS520)! Congrats, Lynne! I chose THIS card to case…keeping the birthday & big circle elements. But I used different images, different colors & different paper. 
After stamping, coloring & die cutting the images, I also used oval dies to cut a ring to go around my little green planet. I figured little green aliens needed a little green planet, lol. Originally I was going to let the paper show thru the big circle cut out of the white, but it just overtook the little green alien so I cut the circle smaller & put it back to give a little more emphasis to the alien. The little blue stars were sprinkled around & the greeting was stamped below the spaceship.

Space Bday cu 00233

Welcome to the North Coast Creations January Release! We have some fun, Fun, FUN new images & dies for you this month & you’ll want them all! Space & aliens are so hot right now & these are just too cute for words, so sit & take a look. Space Bday 00232
On my space card, I wanted a shimmery, deep space look to highlight the white of the moon, spaceship & astronaut. I used to live in Houston, TX which happens to be Space City & if you’re ever there, be sure to check out the NASA Space Center…it’s amazing! Anyway, for my background, I started w/ black & since I wanted it shimmery, I dug out some long neglected Opalite inks & a stippling brush & added the Milky Way looking areas. I used the Sparkling Stars dies to cut a reverse mask then sponged the stars onto the area w/ the platinum ink. Space Bday xcu 00239
Then I die cut the black panel w/ the Leafy Edged Borders & added the die cut moon, ship & astronaut images w/ the matching dies. The greeting was stamped onto a large Star & I also added some shimmery black stars in the blue band. The blue c/s has a kind of light, felty texture look to it.

On my second card, I stamped these adorable Little Monsters, colored & die cut w/ the matching dies.  I came across this acrylic painted background in my stash (done who knows how long ago) & the colors went perfectly w/ the images. For the coral layer, I used the  Circles  & Double Stitched Circles to die cut it, then used a mask I made w/ these same dies to sponge some white & marigold inks onto it. When I placed it over the bg & put the monsters inside, there was a little too much going on so I found a shades of mint paint chip, die cut it w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles & placed it behind the coral layer. Much better! The greeting was added on a white circle w/ one of the leftover coral stitched circles around it. Monster Hug 00223
Below, is a look at the inside & under it are the Copics I used. For the monster, I used the reverse mask of the monster as a stencil, added the color then stamped the image on top. More sponged circles were added down the left side.
