Default WT662 ~ Blast Off into Space ~ {11/16/17}



It's Sabrina here as your hostess this week.


To mark the fact that the space shuttle Columbia completed its first operational flight on this day in 1982, we are heading into outer space in our rockets or UFOs. OR simply create a beautiful deep space scene.


There are plenty of galaxy background tutorials out there on YouTube, and we have a super one from Francine HERE in our Tutorials section, which I used for my card.


Another super technique for planetary backgrounds is the Heated Pearls tutorial. I've never even seen glossy black cardstock here, I use either white or regular black and it seems to work fine.

And Toni used the recent Drunken Acrylic Reveal to great effect on her sample.




Have fun blasting off into space today, then come back and upload your creation with the keyword WT662. If you post a link on this thread, that makes it easy for people to find your card, especially the hostesses.




Here's a link to our WT662 Blast Off into Space gallery




Here's a link to my sample: WT662 Soar


If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.


Many thanks to Lisa and Toni for such great, inspiring samples. Can't wait to get home and try that drunken acrylic reveal myself.

Oh!!! Thanks, for linking Francine's tutorial for us! When I created a galaxy scene recently I looked under "galaxy" and couldn't find a technique to post my card to but I sure thought I remembered a tutorial. You are awesome. I love this technique so much. It only took me a couple of years to jump in! LOL I hope to play along today. I have some cards scheduled for future posts but it would be fun to make another today for your challenge!

Thanks for a wonderful challenge, Sabrina. Hope I didn't stretch it too much by doing a starburst.

I've really been wanting to try this technique which I've been seeing in the gallery, but was searching in the tutorials here under "galaxy" and not finding anything. I'm delighted that you've linked the tutorial by Francine! I have to clean my craft room and prep for a class I'm teaching tomorrow, but I'm really going to try and find some time to try this out today! Great challenge : )

Thank you ladies for all the well wishes. After a day and a half, the test results didn't lead to a heart cath/angioplasty. I am home! I will be seeing vascular specialist at U of M next week.

What a great challenge Sabrina. I made a space card last week for my 5 year old grandson, but forgot to photograph it. I will make a similar one today.

Oops - I was so taken aback by the weird antics of Chrome this morning that I forgot to link my own card . I was really looking forward to being able to do everything on a laptop this morning, and it just wasn't going to happen because every time I tried to open a tab, another one shut down.

There are some great cards twinkling and shining in the gallery galaxy today.

I absolutely loved this challenge! Love so many space movies- Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, the list goes on and on. Went with Dr. Who:

Thanks for a fun challenge Sabrina. I have never seen a Star Wars movie, but I was a massive fan of The Jetsons!

Saw Brenda's (Benzi) card for this challenge, and realized I could use a practice piece from the other day for my galaxy.

Here is my first attempt at the drunken acrylic technique (it is back there if you look REAL closely!) and my first galaxy-type background. Had fun with all the layers.

I finally got around to watching a video tutorial on making a galaxy background, made one, was really pleased with it, and then my puppy got hold of it and ripped it - I made this card with the bit I salvaged:
