Stamp club kit inspiration

I wanted to get right in and play with my new stamp kit, especially since it has had a few negative remarks.  Personally i LOVE this new kit and am sure that there will be lots of inspiration to come, so if you still have yours, dont be hasty in selling it or giving it away.
My first ensemble is a rocket party favour that one could fill with smarties or astros, any small sweets i geuss.
I made this rocket with an old toilet roll inner and just embossed some silver paper, wrapped it around and adhered it.  The top is a cone shape that i made using the principle of cutting a circle and then cutting away a quarter of the circle to make a cone.  When i covered the round toilet roll inner i made sure that the top of the paper would extend over the top of the tube so that i could make slits in it and then adhered those slits to the inside of the cone.

i then just covered the bottom opening with a circle.  Cut triangles for the legs, only needing three as Tilda then is the fourth support.  Added lots of rhinestones from my stash.  Tilda was oclored with my copics and i gave her fishbowl a good going over with glossy accents.

My second little ensemble is a card using the new "cheerleader" and i love the red and white combo that some of the cheerleaders wear so thats what i used.  She is colored with copics and her pom poms were given a lavish going over with stickles, i also found a gelly roll in amongst my pens that i had clean forgotten about and i used it on the trim of her skirt and also on the boots of our little Astronaut, love the effect and far more slimmer than the spica.  My red and white paper was made by Moi, using a stamp and some white embossing powder on the red cardstock and plain ol ink on the white.
I added loads of flowers from my stash and a Marianne flourish to finish it off.

Have a great weekend and hope that those of you that got this stamp club kit will use it and share all your great creations with the rest of us humble bloggers.
