I got the Viva Las Vegas Superman stamp about a month ago and have been itching to have an excuse to use it. I combined it with the Paper Smooches Super Hero stamp set and also a background I Made for the online card class Stencilled.

 

I think you will agree it turned out pretty damn awesome!

I know this blog will skip around re order of the Class. But that is me all over go where the inspiration is strongest.

I really loved this technique, though it did highlight that I really need to add some more coloured embossing powder to my collection.

A Birthday Card

I recently had one of those moments of Panic, you know the ones someone important has just have a birthday, you are seeing them the next day and have zero inspiration on what the to do for their card.

It is one of the reasons I love Splitcoast Stampers I can always turn to them for a tutorial and indeed I found an idea to play with called Layered Stamping.

I don’t really have a lot of big background stamps as yet so chose a Hero Arts Clocks one that my sister gave me for a pressie last year. Along with a technique Tuesday butterfly

and here it is my first attempt at layered stamping

I kept it pretty simple and was surprised at how quickly it came together. I am sure I will have a play with this technique again at some point.

Tiana’s 10th Birthday Card

I am not sure I have ever admitted this here, but I don’t really see myself as a card maker, sure I make my own cards when the occassion calls for it but I sometimes struggle with ideas or execution.

Anyway the other week I bought some cards to make life easier re card making and because there are some very important birthdays coming up)

I started this card for my Niece by using some Funky Sellotape I had snagged quite some years ago and that has been sitting in my stash ever since. The boarder is Made using 2 different ones ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘Funky Girls’

I then Stamped the cute little fairy/elf? and watercoloured it using Distress inks mostly picked Raspberry. I was quite pleased with how this quick card turned out and most importantly she loved it. (mistakes and all)
