Spiderman Birthday


Hope everyone is enjoying the heat wave!  I love love love summer, so I'll be one of the last few to ever complain about the heat.  The humidity level on the other hand can be a little much, even for me, which proved itself yesterday.  It was much too hot to have the boys outside so I got to work in my stamp room guilt free during nap time!

July and August are a couple crazy months for birthdays around here so I decided I best get to it and get caught up and (gasp) AHEAD on all the cards that have to be made.  A wonderful little boy of close friends turned 5 earlier this month and he loves superhero's, so I turned to my punches and created Superman scaling a building wall.  I hope he likes it! :)

Supplies:

Stamp sets: Up, Up, and Away
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Not Quite Navy, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Versamark marker, Silver Embossing Powder, sponges, Owl punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, Modern label punch, Large oval punch, 2 way glue pen, dimensionals

Head: 1 3/4" circle punch - trimmed to create an oval shape
Eyes: the "tummy" portion of the owl punch - cut in half and trimmed to shape
Body: 1 3/4" circle punch - trimmed to shape
Upper Arms and Upper Legs: Large oval punch
Lower Arms and Lower Legs: Large oval punch trimmed down to a small oval.  I don't have the small oval punch which would have worked perfect.
Hands: Modern Label punch - cut in half and trimmed to shape
Boots: I used the Large oval punch as a guideline to keep the proportions right but essentially freehanded them

The web on his body was created by drawing the lines freehand with the fine tip end of a Versamark marker then covering with silver embossing powder and heat setting.  Before I assembled the pieces I sponged Basic Black ink on all the edges of each piece.  I assembled the pieces using a 2 way glue pen.

The building is Basic Gray cardstock, highlighted with Basic Black ink on the edges.  The windows are done with Daffodil Delight cardstock; 1"x1" and highlighted with Daffodil Delight ink.  The finished card is 5 1/2"x 4 1/4".

Thanks so much for looking!
