365 Card Challenge Day 19 and 20

I was sooo super sick yesterday. I am on spring break this fun! :-(

Anyway, today I am still a little weak and icky but I have plenty of strength to work on some cards. I got a new stamp set in the mail today and I decided to think outside the box. For this 365 Cards challenge: Inside Out, I decided to use my new stamp set. If you have never done a card like this before, you should definitely try it. I stamped a simple "Reach for the Stars" on the front and used a circle punch on the edge. This card was sort of hard to photograph. Anyway on the inside, I used tons of white daisy stars, jell pen dots and glitter for the stars and space dust. The spaceships are cut from white cardstock. I stamped them in StazOn and then used my water brush pen to color them in. This would be the perfect card for a little boy!

And I am not really happy with this card, but I am going to have to shower and run some errands that did not get done yesterday so I don't have time to re-do it. This card is for the Keep it To Yourself 365 Cards Challenge. Basically, we had to make a birthday card and leave the sentiment off the front. For my little cupcake I used liquid applique (for the first time). This has to be heat set.....If you look really close, you can see where the frosting got a little scorched from my heat gun....all well, I will probably re-do it before I give it to anyone. I added glitter before heating and then I added colored brads for sprinkles. The butterfly is a punch with a rhinestone in the middle. Enjoy!

All of the stamps and papers are Close to My Heart.

What a far out card and a yummy one too. Real cupcakes aren't perfect either. I think they both turned out very nicely.
