Beware Pirate Cards

Pirate Stamp Camp and Jewelry Party Cards


The Pink in this card is not showing very well in the photo, it is much brighter than it looks. I am not sure why I thought of the ribbon hanging off the card, I was just trying to make something I had not seen yet. Its a little crazy but cute. When you put the Jumbo grommet on the card, just place it where you want it pushing into the card stock, then use a hand held punch to cut the center out before you attach it to the card. Then add the Jumbo grommet and I just used double stick tape to hold all the ribbon behind the card and tied knots at the ends so they would not fray.

I really like how this card turned out. I used Stampin Ups new glitter paint "champagne mist". I used an aqua painter and painted the edge of the card and eyelet border, it gave it a cool gold look. I also painted the white card stock before I stamped the ship and word "ARRRR". If you try to paint the gold after you stamp it, the red ink will run all over your image.

I used the "Rock and Roll" Technique on this card, Using the "Paint Splat" stamp from "Extreme Elements". I stamped the stamp into Bashful blue then used the Old olive in pad to "tap" around the rubber part of the stamp.

These projects were a lot of fun to make, and oh so cute! I think everyone should buy a pirate kit just to have a special dinner at home with their family.
