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….

Magical Mermaid meets High Tide

Happy Wednesday ALL! Ok so this is day 3 of Mermaid week!  I have LOTS to share and more ideas with this stamp set!  Remember all the Mermaids I stamped? Well I’ve got to do something with them right?

BUT was super excited with this card that I created last night and it kept me up late that’s for sure!

It was in my head and so here it is….”Magical Mermaid” meets “High Tide”.  I’m super rusty on my “Sponging” skills but have been practicing. Which you’ll see on the card I did before this one. (Yes another Mermaid Card) LOL!   I’m loving this!  Click photo to see bigger image.

Hope you like it….stay tuned for more inspiration.  I can’t seem to stop. As always thanks for stopping by and….

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……

Magical Mermaid Madness

Yes another post today! I might even have another one this evening!  I have to say this NEW Stamp Set “Magical Mermaid” from Stampin’ Up! (144-017) is becoming one of my favorites! Yes I do have many and in the next few weeks I’m sure you’ll see which ones they are!  But I don’t know  something about this set is just so “Magical”. No pun intended.  I’ve always LOVED Mermaids as many girls have and still do! Working with this set has brought out the “little girl” in me I guess!  It’s an absolutely ADORABLE set and the possibilities are endless!

The colors above are  from Stampin’ Up!’s In-Colors – New this 2017/2018 Tranquil Tide (perfect for ALL things Mermaid or Beachy) then the previous years In-Color Peek-a-Boo Peach! How about the new Embossing Folder called “Ruffled” (143-699). Loving it!  I was inspired from a “Pin” on Pinterest from “Stampin Fee” and a few others. I’ve created a Board which you can see HERE just for this stamp set!  I’ll have to add my own creations to it also!

As you can see with this photo I might have a slight “obsession” with this stamp set!

Seriously? How fun are ALL these colors?  I’m just playing around with single colors – I’m going to be mixing it up with several colors. The possibilities are endless with this set.

Since this photo I’ve already finished up and cut out the Mermaids! So I’ll post a little later my creations!

As always – Thanks for stopping by and have a “Magical Day”! Hee Hee – AND…….

What’s been happening…

Hey All – I know LONG time no post… IT’s been way to long!  Just a quick update as to what’s been happening here with me! 1st and most exciting is that I’m a Grandma! YES indeed – 8/15/2016 my Grandson “Richard Nikolai Six” was born! He is the apple of this Grandma’s eye for sure!  He for sure took my breath away when I first laid eyes on him and had him in my arms for the 1st time!

It was sure tough with them being out in Kentucky (Army base) and me  here in California! I got to spend a whole month out there with them though which was awesome!

If you are wondering about his Crocheted Hat and Blanket – Yes I made them for him! Grammy made alot of things for him!

So that was a HUGE event for my family since he is the 1st Great Great Grandson to my Grandparents! Yep 5 Generations!  It’s absolutely “Amazing”! I’ll have to share that photo another time!

Anyway 2016 was a pretty busy year and I’ve not shared or blogged very much! But I’m getting things back together little by little – Wait did I mention that My daughter has moved back here to California? Well yes they have! Which makes me extremely HAPPY!  My Son in Law is an Army recruiter now and was lucky enough to get to come back home!

Well I’ll be sharing some great projects in my next post and I’ve also decided to get back into doing videos again! I’m going to re-do all the older ones I have on YouTube right now with new product!  As always thanks for stopping by and…
