Happy International Women’s Day! Thought I’d share this quick Super Hero card with you to celebrate the occasion. This is not just an International Women’s Day Card, it could be a mother’s day card, a “yay for you” card, an encouragement or congratulations card…. It features Stampin’ Up!’s Everyday Hero set. All the character pieces are mix and match – the body, the head (there’s a woman and a man) and the cape, and the set is photopolymer, so you can see through the stamps to line up your images easily.
I chose to use Very Vanilla cardstock for this card, along with Archival Basic Black ink. I coloured the images with the Watercolour Pencils, along with a little use of the Blender Pen. For these images, I chose to colour with them traditionally, and then used the blender pen to smooth out the coloured areas. I was a little impatient so had a bit of bleed because I ran over some stamped areas before they were totally dry…but as I always say….if the person who receives your handmade card criticizes it, they don’t deserve it!! hahaha. Besides, it’s an International Women’s Day Card, what’s not to like?!
I’m looking forward to getting together with some of my favourite women in the next while. There’s my demonstrator group called the “Eh” Team; we’ll be having an online and in person get together in March, and a group of us will be going to the Stampin’ Up! event in Toronto in April. There’s my Stampers Club peeps, who regularly get together the third Monday (usually…those stat holiday Mondays can mess that up at times!), and there’s the Monthly Card Class people who mix and match up each month. A craft night is a great way to get together with other women (and men, though my group right now is mainly women). Do you have a regular group of friends that get together to do things? Why not have a craft night one time? Contact me – there’s lots of variations and options on a crafting event. We can make a superhero card just like this International Women’s Day Card!
To whom would YOU send an International Women’s Day Card? Let me know! I have a few candidates for mine – high on the list – my grandmother and my mother (both teachers, did the grammatical form of the first sentence give it away?)! Guess I’d better make a few more cards…LOL. My mission is also to send more cards – I’m planning on sending a lot of my blog sample cards on to good homes to be reused – hence my encouragement to have people comment here on the YamStamps blog!
