Beware Pirates (Stampin' Up!), Handmade Cards

Beware Pirates it’s a Birthday Weekend!

Today both my boys were lucky enough to be invited to birthday parties, so Marius took Kyan to his and I accompanied Laurenz to my good friend Trisha’s place to celebrate the 7th birthday of her oldest, Rhyan.  Now Rhyan is dear to my heart as I have known him since he was 6 weeks old (give or take) and boy was he a little baby being premature – but to look at him know with long 7 year old running legs, you’d never know!

Now you are probably asking yourself what could this possibly have to do with stamping? The birthday cards of course! I have recently purchased the Beware Pirates Stampset and I’ve got to tell you it is soooo much fun to stamp with!  My colour scheme started with a really fun Pirate wrapping paper I found in Big W, and I could instantly see that it would tone with my favourite retired colour – Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive if you have that one), Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise with of course Black and White…

I started with creating my own DSP by stamping the images in different colours randomly over the Whisper White mat:

and then stamped the central image with versamark and embossed with Black Embossing Powder and a heat gun.

And of course stamped inside:

and let’s not forget the envelope!

Such a versatile stampset for boys of all ages – I will be sure to post the special card I’ve made for Laurenz’s upcoming birthday in all together different colour scheme and style.
