A Birthday Card for Stargazing Youth at the Alphabet Challenge

Kid's Birthday Card Featuring Stargazing Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!


The Alphabet Challenge has a great new challenge starting today – “Y is for Youth” and hosted by Dawn. We all have kids on our lists of cards that need to be made, right? I hope our challenge will get you into your craft room to create the perfect card for her/him. Need inspiration? Our design team has some that you are sure to love! My card started with a wonderful stamp set for kids, “Stargazing.” I have a stargazer in my life so this card will be perfect for him.


Kid's Birthday Card Featuring Stargazing Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!


My Secrets to Making This Stargazing Project Kid's Birthday Card Featuring Stargazing Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

  • This A6 card started by cutting Night of Navy cardstock at 9″ x 6 1/4″ and scoring at 4 1/2.”
  • Whisper White cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 6″
  • DSP – 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
  • I stamped the cute kid image from Silhouette Scenes in black ink and fussy cut it out.
  • The galaxy stamp was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in white emboss powder.
  • Then, the moon and stars, punched from the Twinkle Builder Punch was added to the DSP.
  • I used the die from Friendly Silhouettes on black cardstock, snipped off the palm trees (I didn’t want the kid to be taller than the trees! LOL) and cut to size. Then, it was adhered to the DSP.
  • The sentiments were both stamped in black ink and cut with Stitched Rectangle dies.
  • I am going to share a secret. My original idea was to splatter white acrylic paint onto the DSP to look like stars. I have confessed before that I am a terrible splatterer and this attempt was no different! LOL So, I let it dry and then used the side with very little splatters on the front. When it came to doing the inside, I went ahead and used the other side of the DSP because the large sentiment layer covered up the huge splats. You may have noticed the smaller ones so I wanted you to know that it’s not your computer screen! 😉 If you have any tips on splatters, please leave them for me in a comment!

  1. A beautiful inspiring card with a wonderful sentiment

  2. your card is so spectacular, teamie!

    hugs and kisses from germany

  3. What the heck DSP is that? Please disclose!!
    My only splatter tip -( I too, am splatter challenged) is to test the brush and paint/ink each time prior to splattering your piece. Lay out grid paper and test your flicking a few times till it looks vaguely like what you had in mind. Then apply to the piece you want splattered. It seems like it wastes a lot of time, but I have improved a lot!. LOL and good luck.

  4. Hi, Cindie! You don’t recognize that DSP from See A Silhouette collection? It’s one of the reasons I bought it! Thanks for your tip! I will have a splatter session this weekend, using your tips!
    Have a great weekend!
