Superduper Birthday!

 This was one of my projects for this month.
Hermelinda did this really cool Zfold birthday card and I've been meaning to use it. Then I saw the Every day Hero set and had to have it and loved the city scape.

The sentiment from Super Duper stampset goes so well with this.
I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point and then again with Real red. The new stamp pads are juicy enough that if you put the clear embossing powder on it right away it sticks and lets you emboss it.  Cut it out and layer with dimensional to pop it up as shown.
I stamped the city scape a little higher on the panels of the card and then used a 1 inch strip to stamp it again then rough cut the top part to layer it a bit.  You could color in the houses a bit but I left it be so it would not take too long for the make and take.
I stamped the super duper the same way - - cut out the super duper after stamping in real red and just stuck it on top.  It did not look as good coloring in with markers separately.  I stamped the super hero and the cape separately on a scrap of real red. After I stamped him, then I placed the Happy Birthday panel to hide him behind so you could not see him when the card was flat to make it more a surprise.  I stamped the balloons in real red and pacific point and used basic black markers to make it look like he was holding it.
I stamped the WOW sentiment in the middle panel and little stars in Daffodil Delight to add some interest. 

The super dude was colored in with blender pen and the real red, pacific point and soft suede for the hair.  The skin was colored with Blossom Blush- retired- marker.

Happy Easter!

My mother in law is doing Easter Dinner this year and she always goes all out.  But I had to do a little
something for my boys.  I was inspired by the On Stage demo by Sara the different side way boxes made with the Window Box thinlits die.  I thought it would make a cute container for the Easter basket.

I used the old lace ribbon large border punch for the handle and just scotch taped it onto the inside of the basket sides.

I found this sweet Mint colored berry basket in ceramic and had to make a little basket for my DH, perfect for the little bunny.

These were some of the treats my MIL put out for dessert- the lambcake was SOOOO cute! and the little petit fours were delish! I especially loved the little nest of eggs ones.  The table was sprinkled with all different chocolates and the whole house was decorated to the hilt.  I hope the boys remember the wonderful things their grandparents do for them....  I certainly love it all!
Happy Easter!
