Today’s card is one I created a week or so ago to send off to a lady that put out a call for birthday cards for kids at a Sydney Hospital, so I put my hand up. Ove the next few days, I will share with you the other cards posted off.
The age group was 11-15 year old girls & boys (yep, I took 2 groups) so I decided to go with the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set. What girl doesn’t love mermaids?
I took my inspiration from one of my previous cards which I created when the set first come out. The layout come from a challenge I set for our FB Group last week. You can see that card & layout out here.

I created the card today some time ago, originally for a blog hop but it completely slipped my mind.
When I first saw Beachy Little Christmas in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, I saw a wreath using the shells. I’m quite happy with the result. In fact, we eventually did it in one of our classes & the ladies loved it especially when they could see another way of using the images. I must say the set suits our lifestyle down the coast of Australia.
My card today is one I’ve cased using a number of different designs from Pinterest. I took little bits of inspiration from 4 or 5 cards & put them all on 1 card. I think it has worked & it is not too busy, but please let me know what you think?
I love the Holly Berry HappinessStamp Set which is in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. I think it is one that has been missed but one with a bit of a WOW factor when you use it! You are able to create simple, yet lovely creations using the set.

I actually created this card a couple of weeks ago when I first received the lovely “Magical Mermaid” Stamp Setwhich 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.
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.
I’ve been playing with the lovely, lovely “Magical Mermaid” Stamp Setover the weekend & must admit am loving it. For such a little stamp, it sure packs a bit of a punch!
I saw the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches& I had a piece of Watercolour Papersitting on my desk waiting for inspiration to hit me so it was perfect timing to create something with the Paper using the sketch provided. The only stipulation was keeping the card “clean-lined & fresh”. I think I have managed to do this, but would love to know if you think I have!
It is not very often I create square cards, except for special occasions or if I am ask to do so. In fact, my card is actually a 6″ square card but am loving the end result! Now to create an envelope to fit it!
Thanks to the Watercolour Paper I could apply lots of water & with a big help from my Aqua PainterI was able to achieve what I had I my mind. The key thing when working with water & your Aqua Painter is to let your card dry completely & also between colouring with different Inks so that they don’t run into each other, unless of course, that is what you are aiming for, eg my background.
Thank you to FMS for a great challenge. Loved it! Why don’t you pop on & play along with their challenge. You still have a little time before the link closes.
