Pirate Birthday - In2Stamps DT Card

Hi Everyone

Here’s my second DT card for In2Stamps.  This time I’ve used the “Pirate B-Day Party” stamp. This is a wonderful stamp and perfect when making cards for boys, which is something that I struggle with sometimes.

Here’s my card:

I stamped the image using Black Memento ink onto some bright white card stock and coloured it using my Copic Markers. I trimmed it using deckle edge scissors and then distressed the edge and inked it using some Gold Brilliance ink.

I stamped a script stamp using the same Gold Brilliance ink and then trimmed this with my deckle edge scissors.
I cut two circles, one black and one patterned, using large circle Nesties and distressed the edge of the patterned circle, again using some Gold Brilliance ink. I then mounted this onto the black circle.
I arranged all of these on my card and used a few items from my stash as embellishments.


Stamp: Pirate B-Day Party
Ink: Black Memento and Gold Brilliance
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Papers: Scenic Route “Surprise” range – Rainbow Road and Young Street
Card: From my stash
Tools: Deckle Edge Scissors, Large Circle Nesties, Ellison Big Shot, Crop-a-Dile Big Bite
Embellishments: We R Memory Keepers Designer Gromlet, Papermania Black Adhesive Gems and black ribbon from my stash

In2Stamps DT Card


Today I want to show you my first DT Card for In2Stamps

I've used this fabulous stamp called A Micey Gift 

I stamped the image onto bright white card using Memento Black ink and then coloured it using my Copic Markers.

I trimmed the image and mounted it onto red Mirror Board

The paper I’ve used is Imaginations “Lego” range. I used a little Stickles Gold Glitter Glue to pick out areas of the Lego bricks. I mounted this onto the same red Mirror Board and then stuck this to my base card.

I made a badge using the same Lego paper and a number 8 peel off sticker.
