Pirate Treasure Card

I am in love with the Pirates & Mermaids Stamp Set! (And I don’t care who knows it!) I mean, I knew I adored the mermaid, but I didn’t totally fall for this stamp set until I used this swashbuckling seadog PIRATE on a card! He is just the right mix of rogue and adorable.

The crown jewel on this card (yes, you read that right) is the addition of real jewels spilling out of his treasure box. This element was fun to create and makes a huge impression on this kid’s birthday card. To create the treasure box, I just grabbed the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and piled them on the card until the spoils sparkled to my heart’s content.

Honorable mention definitely goes to the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. Combined with the Gold Foil Sheets, these make the card worthy of all your pieces of eight.

Product List

Card Making Instructions:

  • Cut a piece of 8 ½ x 5 ½ Real Red Cardstock. Score at 4 ¼ and fold in half with Bone Folder.
  • Cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheets at 2 x 5 ½ and emboss using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. (The Big Boss.) Adhere to card front with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Stamp the pirate image and “you are a treasure” or “happy birthday” on a piece of Basic White Cardstock sized 2 ¾ x 3 ½. Color the Pirate using Stampin’ Blends Markers in Real Red, Soft Suede, Ivory, Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight.
  • Layer the pirate piece on two more cardstock layers: Basic Black 3 x 3 ½ and Basic White 3 ¼ x 3 ¾. Attach to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   
  • Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the treasure box image on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock. Trim out the image with Paper Snips. Add Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over, creating the spilled treasure look.
  • Send this card to anyone who is a treasure to you! Makes a great masculine anytime card or kids birthday card. Enjoy!

For DAY TWO, I chose a stamp set I really love, but honestly it REALLY shines when combined with the dies it coordinates with. They are BOTH retiring, so just go ahead and get them both now.

IMPORTANT: The dies are on sale for more than $13 off! That means you shouldn’t order the bundle, but order the stamp set and dies separately. Also, you have to HURRY! They will likely sell out at that price.

item# 146828 Stitched Labels Dies $19.80

Both items for $38.80?!?! Yes, please!

Good Morning Magnolia Wedding Card

This card was a favorite at Card Buffet! Simple and striking, the spotlight technique allows you to focus in on finer details of this gorgeous stamp without a lot of extra work. To create this card, stamp the main/large flower in Soft Suede ink on both Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock. Next, choose a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set (mine is 2 3/8″ across) and cut out part of the flower from the Crumb Cake image. Now is the fun part! Line up the smaller image over the larger one and adhere it when it’s positioned just right. Voila! You spotlighted! I also used a corner rounder on the two opposite corners of the Soft Suede piece, (best corner rounder everrrr!) and finished it off with a Coastal Cabana card base, greeting, and a few Pearls.

Last touch is a hint of Wink of Stella in the center of the flower. Simple and gorgeous.
