Magical Mermaid

#1 Stampers Meeting, Make n Takes & Team Swaps

One of my favorite things about my Stampin Up business is getting together and stamping with friends, especially my downline team members. We share business tips, stamping ideas, swaps and also have yummy snacks and fun door prizes during our get togethers.

This month Teresa Fisher shared a make n take project with us using the Magical Mermaid stamp set. Her sample was gorgeous. Unfortunately I messed mine up and ended up coming home and having to re-do my card. However, I did use the same colors and cardstocks of Teresas and I loved the colors she chose. Bermuda bay, berry burst and tempting turquoise. The colors really look magical together.

 It was Teresas idea to color the ends of the hair in bermuda bay. How cool is that? I love it!

This is a photo of some of my team from the meeting that night. I remembered to get a photo after most of the girls had already left. Next time, I will have to tie a string around my finger or something, so I remember to get photos early. By the way, that's cute little Teresa to the left of me, in the white sweater.

I also wanted to take time to share of few of the amazing swaps that the girls created. The theme was fall cards and the girls did a fabulous job as usual.

The Little Mermaid?

I almost didn't order this stamp set, even though I liked it and have been wanting a mermaid stamp set.

I wasn't sure how I would make it look as good as it should. But, I came up with an idea and I think it turned out just right!

This one was embossed with copper emboss powder and framed with copper foil paper. The card color is wisteria wonder. I colored it in with an aqua painter and drops of re-inkers.

The water color paper is perfect for the amount of water I used to water color the background and the mermaid.

Here I used a different color card- soft sky and pool party. I think I like these colors even better. I also used silver emboss powder and silver foil paper for one of the mermaids.

This is the silver up close. Got to love those Iridescent Sequin Assortment. They remind me of bubbles!

All the little mermaids in a row.
