Pirate and monster themed boys birthday cards

Hello Blogland, hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.

I seem to be on a roll lately with making boys birthday cards.  I've two to share with you today.

This first Pirate themed card was made using Scruffy Little Kittens 'Archie' stamp and coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir pens.  The pirate themed papers and stickers are from a kit by Sandylion that I've had for some years now but are coming in very handy lately.

This card is made again using a stamp by Scruffy Little Kitten 'Freddie', coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir pens, Spellbinders and Sizzix dies for the sentiments and stars.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis.
Luv 'n' crafty hugs

Lili of the Valley 'Bang the Drum' 1st Birthday Card

Good evening all, just quickly popping by to share a recent card I've made for a lovely lady who's grandson is turning 1 later this month.

I've used Lili of the Valley's "Bang the Drum" stamp on the front of the card, the inside is an Alota stamp, both images were coloured with Copics, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The spots and stripes papers are from a Digi Kit by Wendy Tunison. Lots of Spellbinders dies, together with Tattered Lace alphabet dies and Sizzix star dies.

I also made a co-ordinating box for the card.

And this is what the inside looks like

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges -
