{Paper Smooches} Wish Big featuring Curls & Swirls


Today's card features another look at the soon-to-be-released Curls & Swirls stamp set. When I think of damasks or flourishes, I think of backgrounds and frames so I wanted to use it differently. One of the swirls reminded me of an explosion so I went through my stamps and found the rocket ship from Space Cadet. The mad scientist from Great Chemistry would've worked great, too.


I used the MISTI stamping tool and ombre inks to stamp both the exhaust plume and the mock planet, which I masked off, then sponged over with distress inks after stamping. After stamping the sentiment, I added glitter silver and black strips at the top of the card, popped up the rocket ship with foam tape and rounded the bottom right-hand corner.


Links for new release items will be added as soon as the products go live in stores.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Perfect colouring and use of ombre inks! Fun way to use the swirls for both the planet and the exhaust.
