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! :)

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.

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!Pin It
