Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I want to share with you a handstamped birthday card that I just finished for my brother-in-law.  I don’t know who ever came up with the in-law part,  I feel that I gained more brothers and sisters once I got married (25 years ago)  Anyway, let’s get back to the card 🙂

Giving this handstamped birthday card alot of though, I decided to use the triple time stamping technique.  I didn’t take pictures of each step but here are the sizes for each layer.

White – three pieces cut into 2″  x 3  1/4″, 3″  x 4 1/4″ and 4″  x 5 1/4″

Bubble Gum Green – three pieces cut into 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and  5 1/2″

Then for the base of the card I used Midnight Muse cardstock cut 8 1/2″ x 6″

If you want to see all the steps you can reference post: Handstamped Greeting Card Using Triple Time Stamping Technique

For the inside of the card I wanted to bring some of the great colors from the outside in, so I cut some strips of the cardstock and added to just the one corner.

The best part about making handmade cards is that you can keep adding fun embellishments until you slip the card into the envelope and put it into the mailbox.

All the rubber stamps and cardstock are from my stash of Stampin’ Up supplies.  What I love about all of the stamps, ink and cardstock is that they all coordinate perfectly.

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

AHOY MATEY ~ Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day and I wanted to share with you a really fun Cricut Card Idea that I made to celebrate the occasion.

talk like a pirate day 2013

This little pirate was made with the 3 Birds on Parade Cricut Cartridge.  I think this cartridge is soooooo fun!

After cutting him all out and putting him together I decided that his sword needed some shine, so just added some silver stickles and  now it  looks great.

Then had some scrap Kraft paper and so I literally tore it up to look like land, sponged some Rich Cocoa (Brown) Memento ink onto the edges for more of a dimensional look.

For the background of the ocean all I did was take the other end of the scrap paper that I tore and used it as a stencil and lightly sponged Bahama Blue Memento ink onto the white card cardstock.

~ Enjoy Your Day Matey ~

Maybe you will find a Treasure  Chest filled with Craft Supplies 🙂
