Dylan's Super Duper Birthday


At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with. 

One of the most fabulous things about being in this Creative Team is that we have free rein to make anything we want to using the sets in the shop. This is amazing for inspiring creativity as there are so many amazing packs to play with. I feel very, very lucky to be able to have this opportunity. 

It was my favourite little dude Dylan's 6th Birthday on Sunday and he loves superheroes. The Super Duper and Super Duper Too sets were the most perfect designs to use to make a really personal card for him. Both these sets are available in the pre-coloured versions I used here and you can also get them as black and white to colour yourself.

I used a background paper from the Painted Pretties pack and sized up the green and blue one to pick the blue section for my sky. This is a really versatile pack to use as the background for so many projects.

Next I created a scene using the tall building and the flying boy from Super Duper. Of course every flying super hero needs a whoosh to demonstrate how fast they are flying so this was added too.

From the Super Duper Too pack I added the clouds. I used them in different sizes and also flipped some to change the look a little. I used the Super word art from this and incorporated this into my sentiment. The extra wording are two fonts my hubby bought for me to go with my Affinity Designer software program.

This scene was printed onto glossy photo paper and then matted with red card and a pearlised blue before adding to the card base made from a sheet of A4 card.

I love making cards full stop but more than anything I adore making something that I know is so personal to the recipient. To see how his little face lit up when he saw it brought me so much joy. His Mum loved it too

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
