This set was SO MUCH FUN to play with.
If you are looking for a feel good collection of images, or maybe you want to do some boy themed cards, or perhaps some "go green" cards, this set has a lot to offer!

This first card is a shout out to my peeps over in
Sweden...Nina and Eva this one's for you!


This one isn't quite a card, I think its more of an free standing art piece. It is over 8" tall.
I knew from the moment Irene made us this giant earth I wanted to make this. I didn't at the time realize how large it was going to be but I think it turned out cool. It was definitely a labor of love! There are 16 mini Doodles, not quite every mini we have but almost. I used Mini's from the Animals, Creatures and the Final Frontier set. All of them are cut out by hand and mounted on foam risers for dimension.

The headline is a quick kutz die alphabet, the insides are empty but they do come with the inserts if you want to put them in, I opted for keeping them clear inside for special interest.

Here is how all those little mini's started out life:


This robot card is pretty straight forward.
Lots of dimensions on here with several heights of popping up!

After all the crazy little details in the big card I needed to take it down a notch and did this
very simple but still snazzy single layer (almost) card. I think the key to doing these simple cards is using quality papers, I used 120# card stock for my base and moon and it really made a difference to the overall appearance of this card.

this was a "left overs" card, I put it together because I had that mini spuddy in the rocket already made. The rocket is from our DoodleFactory Urban set. Its a simple single layer (almost) card. Again just some 120# cardstock, copics and some more images on top.

This clear card was fun to make. I love doing clear cards. The alien is mounted inside the front of the card. I used our Stampers magic tape sheets to add adhesive to the entire top of the image, it is so sheer and clear when you attach it to the acetate you can't see it at all.

Here is a shot of the top of the card and a peek at the hidden sentiment
(from the urban 2 sentiment set)

Thanks for stopping by!
Now it's time to head on over to Donna 's blog for your next stop:
