We also have a special priced May Release Bundle that's only available for this weekend only.

Here's what I've created for you...
A Rocket Ship Claw Machine Shaped Card

For my card I used the following CDD Goodies:
The New Adventure Awaits stamps
The New Flag Banner Dies
The New Skyfall Sequins
and the new Spaceship Claw Machine Card Base SVG that I created as a Freebie available this Friday and Sat. during the hop only. After that it will be available for purchase in the CDD shop.
You can find the hop freebie here:

To make my card first I uploaded the Spaceship Claw Machine Card Base SVG into Cricut Design Space. I also uploaded the SVG outline for the Adventure Awaits stamp set. Next I selected only the outline for the alien stamp and duplicated it to have 6 copies. I then cut out all of the pattern pieces and stamp outlines with my Explore in plain card stock. I then inked and chalked all of the paper edges to add dimension and shape. Next I assembled all of the pieces for the Spaceship card. 

I then stamped the Alien from the Adventure Awaits stamp set onto each cut SVG stamp outline. After that I colored all of the images in with Copics. Next I attached all of the little aliens to my card base with glue dots. I then cut the banner with the new Flag Banner Dies from plain card stock. After that I stamped the sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamps with watermark ink and then used black glitter embossing powder and my heat gun to emboss the sentiment. To finish I added some of the Skyfall Sequins for some extra sparkle and embellishment. I hope that you enjoy my project and have fun using the free SVG. I thought it would be so much fun, and go perfectly with the new stamps!
