Superhero Madness with Maria

Hello there

I have been on a fun crafting spree this week and wanted to share it with you all 🙂

The “You Pixelate Me” really has a lot of opportunities hidden inside. Plus it is super easy to line up – with or without a MISTI, so you can keep expanding your images in size. For these cards I have stamped the image several times for each – I used the MISTI since I am a monkey in doing things straight 🙂

I began by finding an image with a lot of superheroes. I used this one for several images:

Found on Pinterest – source missing.

I created 8 cards with Batman, Superman, The Hulk, Thor, Loke, Spiderman, Captain America and Ironman.

Oh my – I had SO much fun with these. When I first got going, I just could not stop again. And I am still contemplating some more designs. I mean – Wonder Woman just came out, right!?

For me these are the perfect boys/men cards. I have my own superhero who I could gift all of these to 🙂 Ha ha…

Here is a closeup of all the cards:

Spiderman

I think the Spiderman card i my favourite. I was just in New York last month with my boyfriend, and every single time we turned a corner, he had a Spiderman scene for me.

Captain America

The caption says “Congratulations on your day” in Danish. I did Distress Ink stripes for the background and went crazy with my Nuvo drops.

Batman

I have been wanting to do a Batman card since Keeway guest designed in March.
I used the text from “For My Caveman” and wrote bat instead of cave.

Loke

These are just my colours – and that might have been my only reason for doing this figure in the first place since I had to check with Jacob who he was 🙂
I used text from “For My Sunflower” to create the sentiment. I just handwrote Villain.

Superman

I couldn’t leave out Superman, right? Love that silkyhair 🙂 Text is also from “For My Caveman“.

Iron Man

I can’t look at this card without beginning to sing “I am IRONMAN” in my head. Awesome song. The sentiment is Happy Birthday in Danish.

The Hulk

This card ended up a little funky green, sparkle, disco-ish. But I still like it. The text is from Monkey Madness.

Thor

Nordic Mythology (wohooo Scandinavia) and Thor. I so wanted to do a lightning behind him, but I could not make it work. So instead he got some clouds lol.

Well, that was a whole bunch of cards ! And I could keep them coming – I had som much fun 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this little superhero(and villain) installment.

Hugs
Maria

Guest Designer Keeway – Part 2

Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-batman! Hello friends! It is Keeway here and I have fun card I created with the ‘You Pixelate Me’ stamp set. This set is super versatile because you can literally create anything you want in pixel!


I just watched lego batman not too long ago, and it really inspired my card today. Literally. Haha! I looked up “pixel batman” in google and found an image that I can work with, and started coloring each individual box. I had to stamp the grid stamp twice because batman was a tad larger than the size of the stamp, but with some fussy cutting and gluing, I can create an image as large as I want!


I stamped ba-na-na-na-na-na all over the background over grey cardstock. Then I adhered my batman over the card with foam tape.

Now I have the perfect card to send to my nephew who loves batman!

Cheers, Keeway

You Pixelate Me

Yo’da best!

Hi peeps!

Maria Krumspring here today, sharing some of my cards made with the new release. Spoiler alert: this will not be my first post, since I made quite a few cards lol 🙂

Thank you to all who placed an order this weekend – Yo’da best !

Aaaaand now for the Yoda card:

Dude, you are so old! Yes, that is how I greet people on their birthdays – I am such a nice person lol.

  • First stamp the “You Pixelate Me” image with a light colour, using the MISTI. Let the stamp sit on the block.
  • Colour the image in – I did a sketch before actually drawing it.
  • Get your MISTI back out, stamp the image with embossing ink and emboss with white powder.

Lastly I added the text from “You Pixelate Me” – Dude, you are so old + text from the Danish stampset “Favoritsæt“. It says “Congratulations on your day”. It’s a Danish expression.

For this card I coloured the “You Pixelate Me” stamp with Zig Markers. These are watercolours, therefore I could do it directly on the embossed image.

I love the versatility of this stampset and have been so excited to get it home. I really feel like you could do anything with this: Tetris, Crosswords, fun patterns and a million different pixelart images. I cannot wait to see you all making fun artwork with this stamp.

That is all from me today!
I hope you all have an amazing week.

Hugs, Maria
