Waltzingmouse February Release - Day 2

To see my March Mixed Media Card Challenge post, please scroll down or click here.

Welcome to the second day of the Waltzingmouse February Release -  just a reminder that all of the new stamps and dies from this release are already available at the Waltzingmouse Shop
Today the Design Team is highlighting the Kaboom Stamp set and coordinating Kaboom Die.
First I have a card using the Kaboom Stamp set.  This would be a great congratulations card for someone passing an exam, graduating, getting a new job etc.  
In other words -  it's not just for kids cards!
This set looks like it popped out of a Super Hero Comic book doesn't it??!!  How fun are all the dots making up the stars and clustered at the bottom of the letters.  I stamped the sentiment frame and then hand cut it out so I could layer it over the base panel with foam dots.  I also added a few sequins around the card.
If you visit me often - you know that I love to use photos of my grandnephews and nieces on my cards - and these Kaboom stamps and die inspired me to use a recent photo of 4 1/2 year old Landon that his mum took of him.  Landon had had his face painted and is holding some kind of ray gun!  I'll be giving this to Landon for his 5th birthday in early September (if I can wait that long!)
The Kaboom die cuts so you can layer the letters in a different color over the first cut.
I'm linking my Kaboom birthday card to Seize the Birthday Challenge - toppings/Masculine
Please check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration using Kaboom!

I invite you to stop by again tomorrow when I will be creating with the new stamp set Halftone and the Easter die.  See how you can win some WMS stamps here at the Waltzingmouse Blog

Landon is a total sweetheart! Great cards Julia, love that Kaboom! Great colours on the first one, such an eye-catcher! hugs :)

The Kaboom set would be nice for making cards for kids, especially the boys, for Operation Write Home! It is always more difficult making cards for the younger males! Great cards!
