I have some fun cards for you today! But before we start, have you entered my BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY?? I started sending out a newsletter a few times a month and I'm looking for NEW NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBERS - not just blog followers! Make sure you sign up for my newsletter. Follow the birthday giveaway link!
So today I have 3 cards using a new set from Stampin' Up! called Everyday Hero. This is such a great set - for boys and girls - young and old! I loved the old Calling All Heroes set from Stampin' Up! and was sad to see it go. This set though far exceeds the other! I think you'll agree!
I started by picking out this new designer series paper (DSP) called Urban Underground. This is another sneak peek at some great masculine paper in the new catalog. I decide to use Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry to offset the dark gray and black.
This set comes with a "D" and an "M" for dad and mom - but I decided to turn the M sideways for an "E" for our little Eli. Perfect card for his lunchbox!
To create a longer skyline, I first stamped the image on thin computer paper - I find this paper makes the best masks. Fussy cut as best as you can around the image to blend the images together.
This next card is so sweet! I love the little sentiment. :)
And it just so happens that the star from the Brights Enamel Shapes fits perfectly on the stamped star!
Lastly, I made a card with my mom in mind! Superheroes can have grey hair too I think!
The background sentiment is made with two separate stamps. Because this set is photopolymer, this was easy to line up!
I made the skyline the same with the masking technique. This time I stamped on two different grays. I really like how this turned out!
I hope you like this set! I'm considering having this set as part of an upcoming Stamps in the Mail kit. If this is a set you think you'd consider, please let me know!
