Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Bloghop – a group of Demonstrators from all around the world. You have arrived from Kimberley’s blog.
Each month there is a different them & this month, the focus is on the Kids.
I actually created this card a couple of weeks ago when I first received the lovely “Magical Mermaid” Stamp Set which I think is perfect for girls. So many ideas, so little time!
I wanted to try & use the set a little different while at the same time, create a different fold. It is very simple but with all the Whisper White I think it is quiet effective.
To create my Base Card – Bermuda Bay, I scored & folded it in half but cut about an inch from the right hand side so that I could continue the “ocean” on the side of the card & the mermaid overlapping a little.
To create my background – I used the Block Stamping Technique by swiping Bermuda Bay Ink onto a block & stamping onto a piece of Whisper White Card. The seaweed was stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink & the seashells with Sahara Sand. I embossed the piece using the Ruffed Dynamic EF & adhered it to the Base Card.
The mermaid was stamped onto Whisper White with Early Espresso, coloured with the Watercolour Pencils, blended with the Blender Pen before being fussy cutting & adhering to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside, I masked off a piece of Whisper White on the left hand side, repeated the same process as I did for the front so that the “ocean” continued across the card & the adhered it to the inside of the Base Card.
I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White in Early Espresso, fussy cut it & adhered it to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I randomly scattered small Rhinestone Basic Pearls so that they looked like bubbles.
I do hope you have enjoyed my card. I am hoping to post a tutorial later on in the week.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
