I walked into my stamp room wanting to make a card with an astronaut on the moon. Since SU doesn’t have a really big circle die, I thought I could make the moon with the Basic Borders dies. That makes it so you just see a part of the moon, not the whole thing.
I die cut Very Vanilla with the Basic Borders (5-1/4″ wide) and the embossed with the dies from Reach for the Stars that give it a look like craters. I then used Crumb Cake with a Blending Brush just to give it a little color.
I decided to reverse stamp and die cut the astronaut so they could “hold” a sentiment. Here’s my short video on how to do this:
I stamped the sentiment from Reach for the Stars with Blueberry Bushel on Basic White. Die cut it with one of the Countryside Corners dies.
I wanted to add a star, so I used the Beautiful Balloons dies with the Holographic Speciality paper.
The background paper is from the Stargazing DSP. On the other side is lots of “planets”. I saw the one that looked like Earth, so I die cut that with the Reach for the Stars dies. I thought it looked really cool as a view from the moon.
And! I have four more cards using Stargazing/Reach for the Stars! I won’t show them on here, but you can purchase a PDF tutorial. It includes pictures, measurements, supplies used and step by step instructions! I have PDFs available for other stamp sets, too. Here’s where you can see them!
Here’s everything I used:
