Jake and the Never Land Pirates is an animated cartoon on Disney Jr. (based on Peter Pan) that many young children enjoy. I have to admit I enjoy watching it when I have little ones around and the songs are catchy. It is a great learning tool for preschoolers, it teaches counting, problem solving, math, and most importantly good social skills (like how to be a good friend).
Ahoy Matey is the challenge this month at Words 2 Scrap By . So with the little ones in mind I created this card.
This is a MFT Ahoy Matey stamp set. The papers are from Stamps of Life. I really held off on the whole shaker card thing, but once I tried the Fuse Tool, I was hooked. The image is colored with Copics and the bandana is paper pieced with the same red dotted paper used on the card. Paper Smooches dots and dashes die was used to create the dots along the image.
Cards In Envy’s Challenge this month is Inspired By A Song. I am a Beatles girl. I mean I was one of those screaming young girls when they came to the United States back in the 60’s. When I was in sixth grade one of my friends had a Beatles inspired birthday sleepover and all we did the entire night was talk about John, Paul, George and Ringo. The White Album came out in 1968 and was quite the hit. There was one song on it called Rocky Raccoon. It’s one of those silly songs that when you hear it, it plays over and over in your mind. You can check out the lyrics here.
I purchased GinaK Designs Autumn Wishes Stamptv Kit and in it one of the stamps is a raccoon. As soon as I stamped the image, the song Rocky Raccoon started playing in my head. So the inspiration for my card.
I was NOT going to jump on the shaker card bandwagon. Guess what? I am hooked or should I say shaken? The cards are fun and easy to make with the fuse tool. You don’t have to worry about the shaker materials coming out or the card falling apart.
So Rocky was stamped and colored with Copics, cut out with the matching die and mounted on foam. To make the two leaves I first stamped one of the trees onto white cardstock using Memento Peanut Brittle and Memento Tangelo then I die cut them with the cute leaf that comes in the kit. The papers and sentiment are from the kit as well. I used a woodgrain background stamp for the card layer.
