Have a SUPER valentine's day {CSS group project}

have a SUPER v-day

I couldn't let Valentine's day come and go without using the rag doll super hero set.  And, when I saw *this card* on Joy Taylor's blog, I was inspired to make a black & white version of my favorite rag doll, with the pop of color in the sentiment.

My little Thomas has 20 kids in his class... I've made 10 of these sweet tags so far :)  They're tall enough to be used as a bookmark, or to be able to adhere a lollipop to the back.

I started out with a piece of white cardstock, and stamped "super" first.  I created masks for just the "u" and the "p" and stamped my rag doll with all of his superhero accessories (his mask, his cape, and his "s" for superhero!)  I then borrowed "valentine's day" (I cut off the "it's" from the sentiment, from "sweet sentiments: holidays") and typed up "have a" on my computer.

I hope you like it!  A few of the other designers have projects waiting for you as well:

And, there's more me on the CSS app today:

  3. Seriously, CSS should come out with an Elena super hero stamp:) Just plain awesome!

    BTW, what do you use for masking? Eclipse? Copy paper? Just wondering!

    1. Thanks, JJ! i'd make a pretty cute superhero :). I use mostly eclipsys masking paper, but if the post-its are closer at hand, I might use those too :)

  4. SUPER cute!! love them in black and white coloring with the words popping in color!
