Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

One of my favorite things about this kit is the stencils. They provide you with the tools necessary to create full A2 sized backgrounds that are full of color and personality. Betsy is the queen of layering stencils, and she makes it easy to build backgrounds with dimension and detail in just a few steps.

Out of This World Card

This project uses all three stencils to build a background that certainly steals the show. By layering vibrant colors I was able to create something that only needed a simple sentiment strip to complete it. Not to mention the process was very satisfying, like creating a painting without any of the hard work!

Mean the World to Me Card

The papers in this kit are a treasure as well. They make it quick and easy to put together an entire card in just minutes. This project is a perfect example of that, as all it uses is the papers! 



Some quick die-cutting of the pre-printed shapes and it is all about the assembly.

Cosmic Birthday Card

How about something a little different, something more sophisticated with the same supplies? With just a few stamps from the kit I was able to create an entire collage around the "HB" from Initial Sentiments: Birthday set.


I stamped everything in VersaMark and brushed over them with Perfect Pearls.

Heather Nichols is joining me today, featuring Make It Market Mini Kit: Out of This World.


One of the cool things about a few of the papers contained in the kit is the "white space" Betsy allowed for customizing with the stencils. Heather took advantage of that design feature here when she stenciled the planet below the pre-printed sky.

  • INK: True Black, Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, kraft
  • OTHER: wooden stars, star confetti




This particular stencil is one of the most versatile included in the new kit. Not only does it work wonders with other kit contents, but it can be a wonderful companion to lots of previously released products for a variety of themes such as birthdays, Christmas and so much more. The detailed texture created on this card specifically with the embossing paste is extraordinary!

  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: kraft, Dark Indigo
  • DIES: Traveler’s Journal: Accessories
  • OTHER: gold embossing paste (Dreamweaver), glitter (Martha Stewart), wooden stars



Heather achieved a gorgeous ethereal effect hear just by simply spritzing water over her stenciling. The contrast of the watered down background and the crisp stampeded images is just plain awesome.

Michelle Leone is joining me today, featuring Make It Market Mini Kit: Out of This World.


This card by Michelle is the perfect example of just how versatile Betsy's kits can be, whether you prefer to create involved projects or keep things more simple. While this project only features a few stamped elements, they are executed perfectly and arranged fabulously. I can imagine the same project in lots of different color schemes too!




  • STAMPS:  Out Of This World Mini Kit
  • INK: Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel
  • PAPER: Craft, Dark Chocolate, Misc. patterned paper
  • DIES: Out Of This World Mini Kit



Michelle does it again with a good basic design that really allows the color scheme to sing. The strips of color in the border directly correlate back to the colors used in the planets creating great visual harmony.




  • STAMPS: Out Of This World Mini Kit
  • INK: Enchanted Evening, Versafine Onyx Black
  • PAPER: Tropical Teal, Enchanted Evening, Green Parakeet, True Black, Stamper’s Select White
  • DIES: Out of This World Mini Kit
  • OTHER: Out of This World patterned papers



There is SO much I love about this particular card! I've always been a fan of black and white cards that just feature a few bold pops of color. Here, Michelle took that to a whole new level by making the pops of color dimensional. So simple in concept, yet quite striking and memorable.




  • STAMPS: Out of This World Mini Kit
  • INK: Versafine Onyx Black
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Stamper’s Select Vellum
  • OTHER: Nuvo Crystal Drops, B/W twine, Clear embossing powder
