MDSM60 Stampin' Up! Ahoy, Matey!

Beth is bringing us a card sketch on this week's MDS Monday.

Looking at a line of flags got me thinking of flag poles or ship masts.  I remembered I downloaded Ahoy, Matey! a couple weeks back, and I was off and running.

  • What a cute kit for a little kiddo party!  The background scene for the party invitation was created with the Tasteful Trim punch shape, filled with Lemonade Stand DSP, for the waves and cloud stamps from the New Heights kit.
  • The preschool-friendly pirate ship was created with triangle and half circle punches.  The custom right-angle triangle punch was created by editing the isosceles triangle shape (see this post for how-to).  After filling with DSP, the sails were printed separately so they could be popped up. 
  • To satisfy the recoloring option for an embellishment, the treasure chest party favor box was recolored in Soft Suede.  Simply print, cut with scissors, and assemble.  Such a cute way to create custom invitations, party favors, and thank yous without much fuss!
  • For more ideas, check out this post to see how I used this kit (when it came in paper form) for my daughter's birthday.
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White; Accessories: Dimensionals; MDS Elements: Ahoy, Matey! kit, New Heights Cloud 1 & 2, Lemonade Stand DSP, Tasteful Trim Shape 1.
