A Note of Thanks….

So I needed to make some 3 x 3 Note cards and was inspired by a card a saw on Pinterest by Tracy May – so these are what I came up with!

Love ALL the color combos and how extremely FAST these were to make! The Butterfly punch is retired but you can use the Butterflies Thinlits also.

I used the Work of Art, Swirly Bird and Thankful Thoughts stamp set all by Stampin’ Up!  Want to know how I made them please ask!

As always – Thanks for stopping by and…

Happy Stampin,

Sunset Mermaid Card #6

Good  Morning and Happy Saturday! Welcome to Day #6 of Mermaid Week!

Today’s card was inspired by another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (Lisa LoPresti Curcio). She did a Beautiful Card using the New stamp set “Fabulous Flamino” from Stampin’ Up! When I saw her card it was just breath taking.  Don’t have that set “YET” so of course what came to mind???

Yes my current obsession “Magical Mermaid”!   So here is what I created!  I did get a little heavy handed with the Tango Tangerine BUT it was to late! I will be doing this one again!

I ended up LOVING the final results though!  There is something about it that just draws me in!

Here is a close up! Makes me want to go to the beach and watch the sunset!  Here are the materials I used.

Stamp Set: Magical Mermaid (144017)
Cardstock: Basic Black (121045) Whisper White (100730)

Magical Mermaid Card #4

Well it’s officially still Thursday and so I’m here with Card #4 of Mermaid Week!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest for this card. I haven’t done the “Sponging Technique” in AGES it seems.  So I’m pretty pleased with how this one came out.

Using Emerald Envy Ink and stamped the image in Calypso Coral.  How FUN is this card!  Of course I used the Magical Mermaid Set too!  I don’t know there is just something about this set that I just LOVE!  Well until tomorrow thanks for stopping by and as always….

Do you want to be a part of “Her World?”

 

Seriously don’t you want to be apart of her world? Doesn’t she remind you of a Little Mermaid named “Ariel”! Could it be the reddish hair?  So again  using the “Magical Mermaid” Stamp set by Stampin’ Up! ( 144-017) I created this card!  I’m seriously obsessed with this set!  I’ve also used the Tranquil Tide Cardstock, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Black Archival Inks.   Wink of Stella, Blenders pens too!  Oh and Circle Punches, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8.

As you know from my last post I’ve got more Mermaids coming! I might make this Magical Mermaid week!  That sounds like a plan.  I mean after all I do have 8 or more to go! LOL!  Ok, this is my 3rd post for today! I’ll post more tomorrow – I mean after all this is Mermaid week!

Thanks for stopping by and as always……
