You are Magical



Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I'm popping in today with a just for fun card with the Mermaid Dreams set I recently ordered from Whimsy Stamps, as part of a prize from the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. It's always so much fun to try out new to me stamp companies! I loved this little mermaid tail image and the sentiments in the set are all fabulous, so it just had to hop in my cart, along with a bunch of  adorable gnomes and coffee stamps! {grin} Now to find the time to color them all up!



I colored up the mermaid tail image with Copic markers then fussy cut, doing the same with the little starfish.  I then used a Square Window Tag die cut for the frame, cut from kraft cardstock, and then a gain for the center piece in white. I blended the white inner piece with speckled egg distress ink, then stippled on some white paint for ocean spray onto both pieces of the tag, layering them together to allow the mermaid tail to stick out on top.  I added some seam binding to the top of the tag, then stamped a sentiment from the Mermaid Dreams set on a circele die cut.  I finished off with a distress ink background I had in my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is magical!

Mojo Monday 558




Hi friends! I'm posting a little bit later in the day than planned, but I'm here with a new Mojo Monday sketch! I hope you can find a little time in the next couple weeks to play along with me!

As always, we're playing just for fun. I'm an equal opportunity stamper, so feel free to use any papercrafting products your heart desires and enter as many creations as you like. Use the sketch as inspiration for your creation, then come link it up below so I can come take a look! The linky for this challenge will close on May 2, 2021. I have included dimensions on the graphic later in this post, but feel free to change them up to suit your needs, and never worry about substituting a shape or layer.



I had lots of fun with layers for this sketch, pulling from a pretty Echo Park paper pad.  The darling lamb is from the Sweet Little Lamb set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I colored it up with Copic markers then die cut with circle dies.  The angled panel is cut from a 4" panel of paper that I marked at 3.5" on one side and 2.25" on the other, then lined up the marks to cut the angle. Super simple but it brings a fun element to the card. After layering up my papers, I stamped the congrats sentiment from Engagement & Wedding Innies on the main panel, then accented with a few pearls to finish things off.

Alrighty, now it's your turn! I hope you've been inspired to create something with this sketch. Thanks so much for stopping by.
