welcome to day one of the may countdown to new papertrey ink stamps, including a new pieces of confetti set from me. i loved zappy birthday so much that i had go back to the drawing table and create superhero. more super images and super sentiments, and they can all work together, along with the comic strip paper collection and cover plate too. to kick things off, i have a few cards and an additional die introduction at the end. first up, a superhero silhouette woman with a friendship phrase that i love. i used a section of the full color comic strip page and added the sentiment caption box style like you would see in a comic book. the sunburst sets off the superhero perfectly!
i liked the sunburst/superhero look so much that i decided to use another leftover piece of the same comic strip page for the guy superhero silhouette. this time, i popped him up to draw more attention to him and added the sentiment in black right over the red patterned section. i added a city silhouette die cut from the zappy birthday die collection on a box of blue dot pattern to add balance to the line of images below, both strips extending off the page in opposite directions. the end result is another quick and easy card that will be super fun to give!
and last, i created a small collage of sorts. this is a perfect example of how well superhero works with zappy birthday. the action packed sentiment could easily be used on it's own, but it's also a great continuation phrase for zappy birthday. the speech bubble (also from zappy birthday) is popped up for added interest and the two masks, stamped and die cut, add the perfect pop of color.
and because mini masks weren't enough, i also created dies of the same masks in full size! these can be used as oversized design elements on cards, but the main idea is to wear 'em, of course! i die cut each one from felt, sewed on an elastic strap, and covered my stitching with lightning bolt cuts from the zappy birthday die collection. i used white thread, so i also colored over it with a matching copic in order to hide it even more. super fun!! i so wish i were throwing a superhero party right now! i guess the countdown can be my party - i'll be back with round two tomorrow. until then, be sure to stop by nichole's blog to see what's in the spotlight and the links to who's showing it off. betsy's take on superhero will be a must see for sure!
see you tomorrow...
