Simply Sunday - Pirate Theme

Welcome to Simply Sunday with the Getting Cricky Design Team!

Today is the day that the Getting Cricky Design Team gets to show off some of the projects they have created with the wonderful stamps from K Andrew Designs.  Our theme for this week is Pirates.

For today's project I used the Sampler Cricut cartridge.  Earlier this month, the Design Team had a personal challenge where we all created one project each day but used the same Cricut Cartridge all week.  If you would like to see my projects that I created using the Sampler Cartridge you can look back through the posts from that week . . . or click HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

I kept using the Sampler cartridge since I was on a roll with it for my card today . . .

I used the baby onsie cut and stamped the phrase "Party on the poop deck" on the front of it.  The phrase comes from the K Andrew Pirate Tales and Fish Scales.  I found a background paper that had a compass on it, which made me think of sailing.  I used the rope stamp from this same set to stamp the rope pattern onto a strip of paper that I placed to cover the seam of my two background papers.

On the inside I used yet another stamp from the Pirate Tales and Fish Scales stamp set . . . the pirate ship . . . and then I wrote "Welcome to the newest member of your crew!"

Make sure to stop by Getting Cricky to see what the rest of the Design Team has created, and you can even enter your OWN project into the challenge.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  5. Shawn,
    this is just too cute. Using the onsie and the poop deck stamp together is hilarious and perfect!!!! The way you used the rope stamp on the outside of the card is great. A wonderful way to cover the seam and add character to the card at the same time. I love the way you carried the theme through on the inside of the card. So Creative!
