Pirate Party Virtual Stamp Night - with darn few piratical creations

This weekend was another virtual stamp night at Splitcoast Stampers.  Go to my gallery for details.  While pirates were the overall theme, pirates weren't necessary to do the challenges.  Because I neglected to clean my workspace enough in advance I didn't have enough time to do ALL the challenges.  See below for the ones I managed to finish:

This was using a technique called spotlighting.  Stamps are from Stampin' Up 

This was a color challenge (kraft, aqua and light green).  Stamps are from Stamp Effects (Scrappy Cat)  and Inkadinkado.

The challenge: create a card with three "R"s on it i.e. a color that starts with R, a shape, etc. Here we have a red card with round red cherries, a round tag, raised round cherries (on the black), right-angled eyelets (aka 'squares') and a rounded rectangle (aka 'oval')!   Stamp is from Stampin' Up (one stamp, divided)

This is called a criss-cross card.  The part on the left fits into the part on the right, which is like an open envelope. Stamps are from Hero Arts and Silver Fox Stamps.

This one was to be sea, boat and/or beach related. Stamps are from Stampin' Up.

For this one we were to use a map as the background.  We spent a LOT of time sailing in this area of Michigan.  The stamp is from Silver Fox Stamps.
