Galaxy Pattern Paper


I love galaxy backgrounds.  My good friend Suzy has the most gorgeous galaxy backgrounds on her Instagram sosuzypodcast.  I know that there are different ways to create them with ink blending or watercolor.  The best method for me is pattern paper.  A few months ago I went to The Paper Forest in Washington, Illinois.  While I was there I found this galaxy paper.  It is by Reminisce.  I put this awesome paper in a drawer and just put off using it.

I took each sheet of 12 x 12 and trimmed it down to 4 x 5.5.  I wanted to get as many backgrounds as I could with each page.    This card has Mama Elephant Space Bears.  I did mix the planets and rockets from the different stamp sets I own.  I only made a couple with the sentiment stamped on the paper.  I had to move the sentiment around so that it could be read.


For this card the astronauts are from Taylored Expressions Space Cadets.  I kept the coloring simple.  For the sentiment, I used the Mama Elephant stamp set.  It had these small borders and I stamped them to form the bottom.  The bottom was not completely covered by the pattern paper and it was a great way to hide that.


These two are some of my favorites.  It uses the Lawn Fawn Out of this World stamp set.  I used some Little Things by Lucy jewels.  I just placed them over some of the stars in the pattern.

For all of my astronaut cards, I used glossy accents for the helmets and rocket window.  I also used my clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the planets.

I decided to add a twist to the paper and brought out my Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness stamp.  I remembered my friend Chris Dayton made a card for my little petunia.  I went to her room and brought it to my craft room.  Chris had listed the numbers for the Copic markers she used . 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube Channel.  Have a great day!
