Pirate Challenge - Craftaholics R Us - Guest Design Team Member

I am honored to be a Guest Design Team Member for Crafaholics R Us Blog this week.  I was asked to create a project or two by sweet Janis. She gave me a theme to and I off and SAILing!?...

The theme for this Challenge is Pirates!! Aaarrrggghhh!! Matey! 
I know how fun is that?!?

I created this little treasure chest card.

When you open it up - it reveals a wonderful scene and sentiment. It's full fun layers and dimension.

 I used the Lawn Fawn - Ahoy, Matey stamp set, along with another stamp set  & dies from my stash. I created the sky & sand background using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I made sure to use Florida in my made paper behind the sentiment.

Here is another fun Pirate theme creation.

It's a layout of my son pretending to be a pirate - well a pirate that doesn't do anything. It's from a children's show & song.

For this layout - I drew the skull and crossbones. Created a stencil by cutting the card stock with a craft knife. Laid it on my layout card stock and painted over it. I then distressed the edges of my page to give it a treasure map feel. I backed the torn areas with pattern paper for a pop of color. Stamped part of my title and cut it into tile letters. Outlined, the pictures with a white chalk pen adding pirate phrases along the way.
