I've also made a video for you sharing many different ways that you can use the Shoot For the Moon (UK bundle) bundle...

Here's a look at the full bundle...




My first card today showcases the full moon die, galaxy star stamp and many of the dies from the set.

I watercolored all of the pieces, added some grunge with glitter gloss and embellishment splatters, brushed mousse on the mountain tops and then layered all of the pieces with foam tape.

I heat embossed a sentiment from the Happy Mail Envelope stamp set (Happy Mail UK) to finish the card off. This card ended up having so much depth and dimension. It's a 5" x 7" card so it really makes a statement!

My second card is a simple card that features the tree stamp stamped in black ink on top of an ink blended moon.

I splattered the background with Midas Touch Shimmer Pen and popped the panel up onto a gray cardbase.

After adding a heat embossed sentiment I finished the card off with some sequins.

My third card is 100% stamping. I used Nuvo Hybrid inks to stamp everything and you can see all of the techniques I used in my video. 

Cardbomb, Maria Willis, Tonic Studios,Tonic Studios USA,Tonic Studios Stamp Club, cards, cardmaking, stamps, stamping, die cutting, inkblending, ink, paper, papercraft, video tutorial, technique

First, I stamped the trees in gradient colors so that some would appear to be in the background and others in the foreground.

I stamped the full moon with the back of the detailed full moon stamp.

For my fourth card I used the large half-moon die. This die is big and can easily carry a card on it's own.

I cut it out using Holowaves Iridescent  cardstock and popped it up with foam tape on a watercolored background.

I added some small stars covered in embellishment mousse to the background. The background is also splattered with Glitter Gloss to give it a little shimmer.

My next card is a slimline card. I've used just two stamps for this card (tree and sentiment). I stamped the tree stamp repeatedly using Distress Oxide inks.

Then, I used the same colors of Distress Oxide inks to splatter the background to grunge it up a little. I also splattered on some Midas Touch to give it a little bit of golden magic.

The moon is one of my favorite parts of this card. I cut out a small circle and covered it with white and gray stone drops. Then I dabbed my fingers in the wet stone drops to create peaks. I heated the wet stone drops with my heat tool and this caused them to bubble slightly. I brushed some platinum embellishment  mousse on both the moon and some stars I had cut out. I glued the stars to the background of my card and added a few to the moon as well. I love all that grungy, texture!

I stamped the sentiment in black and that was it.

I think I may save this card to give to my husband.

This next card features the mountain range stamp. I used an easy watercolor technique that I share in my video to color it.

I added an ink blended moon and background above the mountain range. I water colored some water in below the mountain range.

I splattered the background with Glitter Gloss and added a sentiment to finish off this card.

This next card is totally different from any of the other cards. I started out by heat embossing the tree branches around the edges of my cardstock. Then I used shimmer powders to create a wild night sky.

I cut out the half moon using the die and then I watercolored the moon yellow using shimmer powder.

I popped the moon and sentiment up on foam tape to finish off this card.

For my eighth and final card I used an easy masking technique (yep, it's in the video) to create a forest scene. 
Cardbomb, Maria Willis, Tonic Studios,Tonic Studios USA,Tonic Studios Stamp Club, cards, cardmaking, stamps, stamping, die cutting, inkblending, ink, paper, papercraft, video tutorial, technique

I used the large half moon die cut out of irridescent cardstock to frame the forest scene.

I mounted the scene onto a square cardbase that was rubbed with gold embellishment mousse and splattered with white gouache.
