Strong Together | Making a Scene 'Pop!'

Today I have a card showcasing the Simon Says Stamp and Mama Elephant exclusive STAMPtember® stamp and die set called Crusader Kids. This is available only during the month of September, while supplies last. The dies are sold out, but you can still get the stamp set here as I'm writing this post.

I love the adorable super kids on this and had so much fun colouring them! I used non-traditional super hero colours and dressed them both in green and pink! I also decided to not put the boy in tights, and instead let him wear a bodysuit (aka speedo)... I think it's adorable and kinda funny lol! ;)

I wanted to create a polaroid picture with the characters and a little city scene behind them and decided to take it a step further and really make the scene stand out and 'pop' off the card!

I first assembled my photo by die cutting the frame from the Lil' Inkers Instant Camera die and then adding in the cityscape and grass with the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies. I used Avery Elle and Echo Park patterned papers for the sky and grass and Simon Says Stamp Slate Gray cardstock for the buildings.

I then cut a rectangle piece out of the Femme Frames dies and recreated the same scene using the same dies and papers. Before I adhered everything down, I placed the polaroid on top and decided how I wanted to position it so the scenes lined up when it was all adhered together.

I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the frame and adhered the polaroid onto the background scene with foam adhesive to make it stand out even more. Then I added the super hero kids that I stamped and diecut, onto the scene with more foam adhesive.

I completed the card with some glitter accents and sequins and gems in the sky. I love the added detail and dimension that the sequins add... I have a hard time not using them on cards lately lol!


I also want to announce the winner of the Studio L2E stamp set from this post here. Huge congrats to Heather Sebastian! Heather please email me with your contact info and the stamp set you would like, and I'll get it sent out to you!! ;)
