Buzz Lightyear Inspired

When I saw the sketch for Just Add Ink's Challenge #179, I was going to do some grungy splats as were drawn on the sketch, so pulled out my Grunge Me set and went to get my Boy Basics: Skater Dude set to go with it, when I pulled out my Out of This World set which sits next to Skater Dude in my PTI stamps box! I think Buzz Lightyear must have inspired me because as soon as I saw his saying in this set, this card idea immediately sprung to mind and I changed my plan completely!

And here's my card - no idea why my rocket looks glittery when it's been coloured in with Copics (must be because I used Whisper White and not my usual Copic Blending Card) and it looks like that whatever angle I use, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to get some better light as it's a bit cloudy here now and I can't get a better picture!


Stamps: Boy Basics: Out of This World from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Daffodil Delight, River Rock (Retired), Whisper White, Brights DSP Stack (Retired), Regals DSP Stack (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Not Quite Navy (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers

Accessories: Hung Up Cute Clips, River Rock Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired) both from Stampin' Up, Starry Die from Verve Stamps, Rocket Die from Papertrey Ink

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Vannessa, so cool when an idea forms straight away at the sight of your stamps. I think this is cool, great boys card. Thanks so much for joining in at JAI this week. Carolyn

  2. Vannessa it always amazes me how we can sometimes start out with an idea in our head and the final project is so different, the fun of crafting! I like your card and how you have not stuck to the sketch literally but interpreted the splotches to your stars and rocket etc. Thanks for playing with our challenge again this week at Just Add Ink.

  3. LOVE your take on the sketch, Vannessa - and what a nice little bonus that the rocket looks sparkly when you didn't even intend it to! Great card, and great to have you join us at Just Add Ink. :)

  4. Very very cute. I really like that rocket and the sentiment is perfect. Chantell JAI

  5. Ha - I've done the same thing Vannessa! but going with that flow is usually worthwhile! Love your take on the sketch. The stars are the perfect background for your rocket. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
