Everyday Hero Trio

I have some fun cards for you today!  But before we start, have you entered my BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY?? I started sending out a newsletter a few times a month and I'm looking for NEW NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBERS - not just blog followers!  Make sure you sign up for my newsletter.  Follow the birthday giveaway link!

So today I have 3 cards using a new set from Stampin' Up! called Everyday Hero.  This is such a great set - for boys and girls - young and old!  I loved the old Calling All Heroes set from Stampin' Up! and was sad to see it go.  This set though far exceeds the other!  I think you'll agree!

I started by picking out this new designer series paper (DSP) called Urban Underground.  This is another sneak peek at some great masculine paper in the new catalog.  I decide to use Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry to offset the dark gray and black.

This set comes with a "D" and an "M" for dad and mom - but I decided to turn the M sideways for an "E" for our little Eli.  Perfect card for his lunchbox!

To create a longer skyline, I first stamped the image on thin computer paper - I find this paper makes the best masks.  Fussy cut as best as you can around the image to blend the images together.

This next card is so sweet!  I love the little sentiment. :)  

And it just so happens that the star from the Brights Enamel Shapes fits perfectly on the stamped star!

Lastly, I made a card with my mom in mind!  Superheroes can have grey hair too I think! 

The background sentiment is made with two separate stamps.  Because this set is photopolymer, this was easy to line up!

I made the skyline the same with the masking technique.  This time I stamped on two different grays.  I really like how this turned out!

I hope you like this set!  I'm considering having this set as part of an upcoming Stamps in the Mail kit.  If this is a set you think you'd consider, please let me know!
