Happy Rocket



Did you know I became a Princess last week?

My cat card was chosen as a winner at Freshly Made Sketches!  It was an honour to be chosen, thanks ladies :)

My youngest daughter had a birthday party to go to this week and so I looked to Freshly Made Sketches again for some inspiration.

Here is this weeks sketch.  Another great one!


I went searching through my stamps trying to get inspiration for a boys card and decided to go with the rocket from Pun Fun again.  I just love that set!



I stamped the stars from extreme elements in NQN onto NQN and then stamped the “splash” in white over the top.  Of course I was going for a “jet effect” not actually a splash in this instance. I stamped the stars in white onto crumb cake for the main panel too.

For the “flame greeting” I just printed it on the computer, cut the shape and then stamped the splash again along the edge with daffodil and real red.

William was very impressed with his card.  He looked at it for a while and even showed his Mum. I took that as very high praise indeed from a 7 yr old boy at a birthday party!!!  It’s usually just all about the presents.


Ingredients :

Stamps : Pun Fun, extreme elements

Card : black, red, NQN, white, crumb cake

Ink : white, NQN, memento black, daffodil, red

Other : big shot, timeless type alpha, mat pack, white pen, square punch, copics




  1. Absolutely adorable! Perfect card for a little guy!

  2. Brilliant! I love all the fun details. Your coloring on the rocket is amazingly awesome. Great card my friend!

  3. This is such an awesome boy's card. Love the sentiment shooting from the back of the rocket. Now that you're a princess, should I curtsy when I see you next???

  4. Oh my, .... this card is a blast ... I love your stamping creativity, what a fabulous take on the sketch!
