Hi, last week I was excited to receive my new Stampin’ Blends! They are brand new alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! They are not available for sale to customers YET but you can get them until the 15th October 2017 if you are a demonstrator (so now is a perfect time to join my team). I really wanted to colour with the markers so I grabbed the Magical Mermaid set which I had been wanting to use for a long time. I coloured up a storm! The sweet mermaid image is fun to colour (and the Stampin’ Blends are great! I cannot wait to share more with you!).
I shared a photograph on my Facebook page on Sunday showing some of my colouring of this image. I got a little carried away but it is just so much fun. Here’s the picture. Don’t they look pretty!
Here’s the picture…
Of course, it is great to colour for the sake of colouring. I love it. No pressure, just fun! However, I also love making cards! (So, yes, I have a few mermaid cards coming your way).
The card I am sharing today is a very simple one. I wanted to keep it soft and pretty and make the mermaid the focus. I embossed the seaweed using white embossing powder and then painted some of the areas with Pool Party ink to give it a bit of a lift. I cut out the starfish from one of the greetings in the set as I thought the card needed a little more of the Pink Pirouette I had used to colour the mermaid.
Here’s the card…
Isn’t it sweet! A nice and simple card which didn’t take very long to put together. The design is also one of my favourites – very versatile!
If you are interested learning a little more about the new Stampin’ Blends, you can check out my Facebook Live video (and oops! It is sideways!) to see more.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to them both.
