Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

The Big 8 Ensemble

My first project is a little gift ensemble for a *super girl*, all done up in shades of pink.  Every little girl loves to see her monogram, so this ought to fit the bill perfectly!

The Big 8 Card

The card started with the Cover Plate: Comic Strip cut from white cardstock and adhered to Aqua Mist.

Card top

For the top portion, the girl silhouette was cut from Hibiscus Burst cardstock and stamped in Raspberry Fizz.  The title was stamped beside it in True Black.  The base for the monogram was stamped in Tropical Teal and accented with a die-cut "E" from the Polka Dot Parade Alphabet dies.

Card middle

I used the Bookprint Alphabet Lower dies with Summer Sunrise cardstock to spell out the phrase "the big".  I used the circular star accent to replace the upper part of the "g" to help create a pink triangle for design balance.  Behind the letters, I stamped this great new pixelated rectangle pattern from the Superhero set in Tropical Teal.

Card bottom

The smallest Seeing Stars die was cut from Summer Sunrise Stripes and accented with the Bookprint Numbers die in Raspberry Fizz.  The sentiment is stamped in True Black directly onto the Aqua Mist cardstock.

Card down

Everything was adhered to a Tropical Teal card base.


I cut the mask from Raspberry Fizz Felt and then added eyelets to each side to hold the strings for tying it on without any worry of it tearing down the road.  To accent the front, I cut the smallest Stitched Circle from both Summer Sunrise and Tropical Teal felt.  I die-cut the Polka Dot Parade Alphabet "E" from the center of the Summer Sunrise circle and stitched both circles layered to the center of the mask.  The original Zappy Birthday set has a great little lightening bolt die, which I used here with Tropical Teal felt, holding it in place with fabric glue.

Superhero cuffs

This superhero wrist cuffs were made with the Stitched Rectangles dies, I just trimmed off the longest sides so I only had to stitch the shorter sides together.  I accented these the same way I did the mask above.  A quick and easy little gift that any kid would love to receive!  

Super Dad Card

This next card is perfect for celebrating Dad, whether it be for Father's Day, his birthday or just because!  I opted to start with a Pure Poppy and Enchanted Evening Bitty Dot base because it reminded me a bit of a superhero costume.


I created a "belt" with a strip of white cardstock adorned with strips of Pure Poppy and Blueberry Sky cardstock.  I cut the boy silhouette from white cardstock and stamped the coordinating image in Enchanted Evening.


The Small Sketched Stars were cut from Luxe Gold Adhesive Sheet and adhered to our coaster board for thickness.  The sentiment was heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder.

Super Day Card

Next up is a quick and easy card using part of the new Enclosed: Star stamp set a little creatively.


I stamped just the top portion of one of the patterned star points repeatedly along the edge of my cardstock in a rainbow of colors: Enchanted Evening, Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse and Limeade Ice.


I trimmed the "super" from the star frame die and adhered it to the card front.  I then added the stamped sentiments in True Black.

Super Star Card

This card is perfect for celebrating a sports achievement or even a special coach.

Star closeup

I stamped the lines using Ombre Builders and one of my favorite ink combinations, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay, Raspberry Fizz and Scarlet Jewel.  The star frame was die-cut from white cardstock and added on top of that, accented with the stamped word "star" in True Black.


I added a favorite sports quote from Football Frenzy in True Black underneath the ombre block.
