Hi everyone, and welcome to what is going to be a very exciting blog hop! Tonight I am hopping with the phenomenal Paper Adventures team and the theme is “In With The New” – so I am expecting we will be seeing lots of new products!
The guest designer tonight is Narelle Farrugia. Narelle creates the most beautiful cards, and tonight is no exception. Thanks for joining us Narelle 😊
Tonight I am sharing a card I have created using the brand new Pirates and Mermaids stamp set. If you have followed my blog for a while you would know that I make a lot of kids cards so this set was a no brainer for me.
The set is a mixture of images that can be coloured and sentiments. I have coloured my pirate using Stampin’ Blends, and then created a pirate ship for him using some DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP pack. The helm is cut from the Smooth Sailing Dies, and I used both the Jar punch and the Banners Pick a Punch to make the flags. The rest of the boat is just cut from scraps.
I decided to give it a rounded bottom to make it more ship like – to be honest is doesn’t stand overly well – but it does ok! And it makes it more fun I think.
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card, make sure you keep hopping around to see what everyone else has created to share this evening. Next up tonight is the lovely Lisa – click below to see her amazing project.
[…] Next to share their ‘In with the New’ creation is the lovely Shannon Kissane, aka the Crafting Engineer. […]
Such a fun card, Shannon…Rounding the bottom of the card to form the hull is a clever idea…
Great way to set off the pirate by creating his very own ship-shouts adventure at sea!
This is the best – I love it! This stamp set was also a must-have for me. Can’t go wrong with pirates and mermaids. Kelly x
