The Robots Have It

Hi Folks
Just popping in before I head out to work.  Thank goodness it is Friday and a three day weekend beckons.  I do love bank holidays.  I say we should have one every week lol.

I wanted to share this fun little card that I made for my nephew's birthday.  This was for my daughter's to give to him.


This card was made using a stamp set that I have had for a good 12 months and never used.  It is from TPC Studio and called Blips and Bleeps.  You get these cute robot images and then lots of words (blip, bleep, zip etc) and various little cog images.  Here's how I did it.
1.  Create a background using white card and distress inks.  I used spiced marmalade and mustard seed.
2.  Stamp onto the distressed card using the words and cog stamps. Add some stitching around the edges and mount onto blue coredinations.  
3.  For the robot images stamp onto white card, heat emboss with clear embossing powder and then cut them out before distressing with the same distress inks.  Stitching was again added around the edges.  These were then mounted onto a strip of blue coredinations and mounted across the centre of the card.  
4.  I stamped the sentiment and added some little silver metal brads as the finishing touch.

I was really pleased with how it came out.  A fun card that could be changed in look by just using different colours of distress ink and card.

Thanks for popping by and hope you all have a good day.  Hope to see you again soon.

What a fun card! I must go checkout those stamps, good robotstamps are hard to find, and I haven't got any yet. I've got plenty of people who would love a card with these.
Beautifull colours too!

greetings,

Debbie / Daqa
