Pink Poodles in Paris

If you have not entered your paper craft at My Grafico is not too late.The theme for Challenge #128 is BLAST OFF! This does not mean that your project need to be a space theme. Think creatively!!!!

One winner will receive this cute space digital kit from Kelly Medina Studios

The design team came up with some creative ideas to share with you.  This kit has so many possibilities and we all had a great time playing with it! last week, I posted a card that I had made using this digital kit.( You can see it in a former post.) Well, I had another amazing idea, so I chose to use it again in designing a card for my grandson's 13th birthday. Yes, he really is 13 and he says that he indeed feels older now!!!

This a a slanted easel card.
Here is the side view.
Materials Used:

Image: My Grafico Crafts
Bright circular cardstock: Office Max
Coloring: space ship-copic markers; 
blast off-Gelly Roll Pens; 
dots on the bright green and stars on the sentiment- Gelly Roll Glitter Pen
Happy Birthday stamp:CTMH
Glitter: Martha Stewart
Black Cardstock and gold dots: Michael's 

 This was really an easy card to create. He was intrigued by the card design!!! That's a lot from a teenage boy LOL.

This week, the digital set was equally charming. I had so much fun with this set too.
Here is the Stair Step Card that I designed using this set:
Isn't this just the cutest? I could have added more bling but I wanted to show how easy it is to make a card by just using the elements in the kit. The directions for this Stair Step Card can be found on Splitcoast Stampers.  I chose to add a pink and black awning to the shop, added a name to the "tea room," placed the poodle in the window and added 'Let's Make a Date' to the pink tag. 

Materials used:

Cardstock, yarn, DP, rhinestones, flower: Michael's
Punch: Martha Stewart
