I have been having loads of fun playing with all the new product from Imaginisce! The Parrrty Me Hearty collection, especially, has been one that has gotten me stretching my creative skills. It is definitely a themed collection with lots of pirate and mermaid and birthday focus. BUT, I'm always one to stretch my supplies and look at things a little bit differently.
For example, the wood plank paper used for the following card could actually just be something rustic and neutral for a background. The seastars could be just stars and those jeweled treasures could simply be BLING! :)
A couple of weeks ago I was on the Imaginisce blog sharing two cards. Our focus for the week was Random Acts of Kindness. Now, who wouldn't love a handmade card as a random act of kindness? I would LOVE it! Snail mail is the best. Especially, "just because" snail mail.
So, here are the two cards I created with Parrrty Me Hearty:
Each of these have a nautical feel with the fish and anchors and sandcastle, etc., but, I hope that you can see how you can still find neutrals and simple patterns to create even more with this super cute collection!
