Ahoy! Second Round…

This is my second post in the challenge at the Lollipop Ladies. You still have around 10 days to get your entry in to the challenge.

Pirates + Water


I haven’t made one of these cards for ages and I don’t know why. They are super easy for great effect – in my opinion. Loads of free tutorials on the web – search tri shutter card. I have used Papermania Urban Stamp All Aboard Map stamped onto (unknown) cardstock in SU Lucky Limeade ink matted onto (unknown) cardstock. The pop up elements are again unknown – I have had those for a very very long time! I actually found them recently whilst looking for something else and went AH HAH I know just what project I am going to use them for. Can you spot a little touch of water under the pirate ship?  The digital image is from http://madamebogg.blogspot.com.au/  coloured with markers and fussy cut out.


I had a little trouble getting a good pic of the pirate inside the card – the auto focus kept focusing on other elements of the card. I really must read the camera manual! Maybe that could be my next book club read? After all it is my turn to pick. We had book club at my place yesterday – I think we need a new name – couldn’t eat tea I ate so much at lunch time. Being school holidays we had a few of the children around too – good now they can keep themselves busy, although they do have a radar for when the sweet treats came out of the fridge. Any way enough of my waffle.

I have used the 3D stickers and the coloured cardstock is so old I don’t know where it came from.

Hope everything good where you are and thank you for stopping.




Ahoy me hearties…

Sorry couldn’t help that.

This weeks challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is Pirate Lollipops and water.


I made this card using a digi image from http://madamebogg.blogspot.com.au/ coloured with markers along with stamps from Hero Arts and My Cute Stamps. Plus Heidi Grace patterned paper,  cardstock from my stash and Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder.


I tore the cardstock and layered before stamping my images onto the underwater scene. I stamped the shells and star fish onto scraps and cut out before adding to the water. The Pirate is standing on a piece of embossed woodgrain cardstock – like a part of a ship or a jetty. The sun is stamped and a punched circle added for the centre.

I was having fun so I made a second card.


Using PTI Tremendous  Treats, My Cute Stamps – Fishy Fun and AnnaBelle Stamps Boy’s Party images. I have coloured the pirate with alcohol markers and Tim Holtz black soot.  I added some sparkle to my pirate with some glitter on his skull and cross.  I layered by using circle punches and popped up with foam tabs. The little boats are coloured with SU markers before being hand cut.
