Celebrating our Super Heros

With Father's Day quickly approaching and around the corner is Fourth of July, here is some inspiration using CTMH's fabulous Superhero paper pack X7152B.  For the first LO called Super Hero, I used the Workshop on the Go LO pattern for Lucy on page 31 of our catalog.

I used Cork Shapes Z1719 (p. 129) and Dimensional Elements Stars Z1680 (p. 130) to create interest.  I covered some of the stars with card stock, cutting them out with our wonderful Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge Z1686 (p.13).  The stamp set I used on the stars is called Diverse Backgrounds D1508 and can be found on page 102 of the Idea Book. The Super banner is also cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge

The next LOs I made with the Superhero Paper pack, I used the Workshop on the Go LO pattern from the Victory kit X7150B (p.36). I love the epoxy and metal Comic Badge Buttons Z1688 (p. 128) that are made to match perfectly with our Superhero paper pack.  The title is made from the Dimensional Elements Monograms (p. 130).

The next set of OLs is called Vroom and Line 'em Up.  The paper pack is Cruisin' X7154B (p.60) and I used the Workshop on the Go Cruisin' Kit stamp set (p.61). 

The old fashioned car was stamped using generational stamping.  I stamped the darkest car twice (not too hard with our clear stamps) and then reinked to stamp the second car in line.  Then I stamped the car image without reinking 3 more times.  This leaves the impression that the car is moving.

I love the metallic stickers that coordinate with this paper pack called Cruisin' Complements Silver Foil Images X7154C (p.58).  This one is an old fashioned gas pump and one in the picture below is a license plate.  too bad you can't tell how shinny they are from the photos.

The Bottle Caps Z1691 (p.128) finish off the LO with a little spring, literally, I put one of our fabulous Adhesive Springs z1725 (p.123) under it to give the bottle cap some motion.  Too fun!

I am lovin' the Stella Paper Pack Z7147B (p.16) with it's bold colors and awesome Stella Complements Canvas Shapes Z7147C (p.16).  I used the Workshops on the Go Victory Kit LO G1035 (p.37) pattern again, as I had for the Super Hero LO above.  Just change the paper and the LO looks completely different.  Give the LO a 1/4 turn and it olooks completely different again.  I love these instruction guides that come with the Workshops on the Go Kits.  I distressed direct to paper all my papers and canvas stickers using a Cocoa Z2114 (p. 8) ink pad.

Hope this gives you inspiration to start creating!
