Yo Ho Ho

Hey crafty friends, it's Christy here. Today I've got a super duper fun card for your guys featuring the new Neat & Tangled Yo Ho Ho stamp set. When I was a little girl, I used to pretend I was a Pirate Princess, so this set just spoke so much to my inner child. I actually created TWO cards because I wanted to use every image. The boy version is on my blog, if you'd like to check that out. :)

I colored my images with Copic markers and die cut them with the matching dies, then combined them with the perfect papers -- Echo Park's Pirate's Life. Aren't they just a match made in heaven? I die cut my focal panel with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die-namics, then popped it up with some foam tape over my card base. As a finishing touch, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Clear Droplets with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte

I also stamped an additional sentiment on the inside using Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink, and added the adorable image of the fish jumping out of his bowl. Too cute! He wants to be a pirate too! ;) 

Do you struggle to use patterned paper on your cards? It's one of my favorite things to do, and in the video tutorial I share some tips on how to combine them and use the colors and prints as inspiration for your coloring. I hope you enjoy it!
