Super new challenge


This week over at Jellypark friends Friday challenge we want you to chow us your favorite embellishments.

We also have some of the uber talented Claire's new brand spanking new digi stamps to share with you.
This super cute super hero is one of the new releases and I thought he would be absolutely perfect for my sons birthday next month.
I actually think that this is the 2nd birthday card I have made him ! But that will mean that his little brother can give him one too so that's perfect !

I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw this image - I just knew he had to be bursting out of the card front so I started by practising on scrap copier paper then when I felt a bit more confident I ripped into my, double sided, DP. Then inked up the torn edges with red.
The background is bazzill bling embossed with my stars cuttlebug embossing folder - love this for boys/mens cards.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and made my sentiment in paint.net which I printed onto card banners.
I popped my super hero up by making 3 paper springs so not only does he pop out of the envelope he wobbles too - Issac will love shaking the card about and watching him wobble - I just know it !

In case you were wondering my fav embellishments are chipboard shapes - I love how you can paint/ink/emboss/glitter/flock them ! They are sooooooo versatile. These stars were inked with yellow brilliance ink so they shimmer a bit and I might even add a bit if glitter to them later for more bling !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Birthday Sundaes - Birthday card
Dream valley challenges - Distressing
I did it creations challenge - Children
Quirky crafts challenges - Numbers
Kaboodle Doodles Challenges - Primary colours
Scrapbook sisters - Stars
Diva's by design - Birthdays
Crafts & me - Make it count (add a number)
