Simple Mermaid Card using Magical Day

I love, love, love the new Myths and Magic designer paper. Its so sparkly, colorful and magical!

I put together a quick card using the mermaid paper and the Magical Day stamp set. Who can resist a beautiful mermaid card?

The mermaid in the circle was stamped with the black memento ink pad and colored with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used the pool party and bermuda bay markers as well as the ivory, pumpkin pie and daffordil delight colors.

To pick up on the sparkle from the Myths and Magic designer paper, I added a strip of the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper in bermuda bay.

Can you see the sparkle on the mermaids? I also added a few Glitter dots in pink, blue and green, randomly on the bubbles of the paper. Can you spot them?

A small knotted lemon lime twist ribbon is attached with a glue dot, beneath the little mermaid.

Watercolor and Pink Pineapples

So, I finally was able to have some fun with the new Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating Fruit Punches. I was eager to make some pink pineapple cards for sure!

I started with watercolor paper, my aqua painter and a melon mambo ink pad. I wanted a splash of water color wash in pink for my background. So, I used the ink in the "lid" of the melon mambo ink pad and painted it onto my watercolor paper with an aqua painter. ( close your ink pad and squeeze the lid of the inkpad so that the ink deposits onto the lid inside)

IMG_0485

I randomly painted some ink onto the paper.

IMG_0486

 I then flicked the barrel of my aqua painter to splatter water/ink onto the watercolor paper.

IMG_0487

I let it dry, and then it was time to decorate!

IMG_0491

The 3/4" circle punch was used to make the basic black circles which I adhered the melon mambo and lemon lime twist pineapples onto with mini dimensionals.

IMG_0494

I decorated the card with the new Tutti Fruitti sequins, which by the way, are self adhering! I also added a rhinestone to the middle of each sequin.

IMG_0488

The black and white dotted paper is from the Tutti Frutti designer paper pack and the ribbon is lemon time twist. I thought it would be cool to stamp the greeting directly on the ribbon in black archival ink.

IMG_0511

Of course I had to stamp some cute pineapples on the inside of the card as well.

IMG_0490

Making this "Pink Pineapple" card made me so happy. I didn't stop there, though, I have more Fruit Baskets to share this week as well. So be sure to check in later.

Brusho Butterfly

Here's another Brusho creation with the Beautiful Day stamp set. This set was designed to perfectly pair with the Brusho dyes.

I posted the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set that I made with the red Brusho powder and today I'll share the butterfly from the same stamp set. I used the blue and yellow Brusho this time around. I paired those colors with the lemon lime twist, night of navy and watercolor paper.

IMG_0117

I first sprinkled the blue and the yellow brusho on dry watercolor paper. I then spritzed it heavily with water from about 8-10 inches away, until the paper was fairly wet all over. I wanted the colors to blend well, so I made sure to spritz it well. Instead of letting it dry on its own, I took a paper towel and layed it flat on the paper and soaked up the excess water. I then dried it with my heat tool for about 20 seconds.

IMG_0044

I then cut a 3'' x 3 3/4" piece from this piece of watercolor paper. I embossed the butterfly over it with white emboss powder, and added a few Glitter Enamel shapes and lemon lime twist ribbon.

Its so bright and sunny. I love how the Brusho technique turned out!

Brusho and Beautiful Day stamp set

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw my Brusho swatches that I was playing around with. Well, I made them into cards.

I will share the first one with you today.

I used the big, bold, beautiful flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set as well as the Brilliant Red Brusho powder.

IMG_0122

I used watercolor paper for my first attempt at Brusho. I wet the paper first with an aqua painter. I then sprinkled the brilliant red brusho and a little bit of gamboge (orange) brusho onto the wet paper. Then spritzed it with water again from about 4" away.

IMG_0041

I wanted it to dry fast so that I could emboss over it, so I used my heat tool to dry it. I then used white emboss powder and embossed the flower over it and cut it out.

  IMG_0124

For the leaf, I did the same as above, only with the moss green brusho and cut it out and adhered the leaf onto the red flower. I backed it with the gorgeous Petal Passion designer paper, black shimmer ribbon and a few rhinestones in the middle of the flower.

IMG_0123

I'm really enjoying the brusho and all the unique combinations that can be created with it. I have more to share so come back again soon!

Until the next time...

Magical Day and a Bit of Brusho

Oh my goodness. I had so much fun creating this mermaid card today. I went a little wild and over the top, but, that's the way I roll.

The Magical Day stamp set and coordinating Magical Mates dies are absolutely fabulous! You may have passed this set by in the Occasions catalog, thinking its just for kids. But, I'm here to tell you, first of all, YES, the kids in your family will absolutely LOVE receiving cards made with this set, and secondly, YOU will love making cards and scrapbook pages with this charming suite. The stamps, dies, designer paper, glimmer paper and washi tape- they all coordinate and look amazing together!

So, here's the card. There is something else super cool about this card, that I will point out, in a minute. Are you seeing it?

IMG_0088

Did you notice the turquoise and the iridescent glimmer paper? Its from the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper pack. So, I thought it would be cool to try the new Brusho on the iridescent glimmer paper! It turned out so cool. I sprinkled 5-6 shakes of the Prussian Blue Brusho onto the dry glimmer paper. I then spritzed it with water a few times from about 8" away. Then, I took a paper towel and sopped up the excess water. Viola! It looks awesome! You saw it HERE FIRST folks. Can't wait to play with the brusho on glimmer paper with more colors as well.

IMG_0079

IMG_0084

I cut the waves and the mermaids with the Magical Mates dies. I didn't want the waves lined up perfectly straight, so I offset them a little. The Mermaids were colored with the Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers.

IMG_0085

I used silver emboss powder to emboss the Magical day greeting and cut it out with the dies.

IMG_0083

Can you see the little Clear Glitter Epoxy bubble's?

I added a bunch.. I love these little bubbles. So perfect for under the sea.

I adore these little mermaids. I couldn't decide if I liked the blonde, brunette or redhead better, so I used all three!

IMG_0100

I used a LOT of ribbon on this card. I wanted to tie in all the sparkly colors of the card with the ribbon colors.

IMG_0097

I kept the inside very simple... as the outside was so over the top.

IMG_0096

This card sparkles and glitters from every angle. I wish you could see it in person.

IMG_0098

I used so many dimensionals on this super layered up, magical card. I think I set a record.

IMG_0095

Three little Mermaids wishing you a Magical Day. It doesn't get much better than that.

IMG_0101

I hope you, go back a take a look at the Magical Day stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. *link on sidebar* Its not just for kids (who by the way, think this is the best set ever!) its for us big people too!

IMG_0091

I'll have more Brusho creations for you later this week. So stop back again!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up "Ready for Christmas" Card with a Fun Fold

This is another fun fold for a cute Christmas card using the new Ready for Christmas stamp set. Ready for Christmas, comes with a coordinating framelit bundle, however, I only used the stamps to create this card.

I also used the brand spanking new Stampin Blends alcohol markers! Oh how I love these awesome pens!

IMG_0587

The designer series paper is from the Be Merry 12 x 12 paper pack and the cardstock colors are whisper white, cherry cobbler and pear pizazz.

When using the Stampin' Blends markers, the Tuxedo Black Memento pad is a must. It is designed to work with alcohol markers. Can you see how well shaded and blended these markers make my image look? They are so easy and effortless to use.

IMG_0588

Here's a closer look at the fun Z fold of the card. This fold was very simple to create. I folded the  4 1/4" x 11" cherry cobbler cardstock in half. Then I folded the front flap of the card, back up to the fold. So, I actually just folded the front flap in half to meet the side fold of the card.

IMG_0589

Here's another angle of the Z fold card.

IMG_0590

There are so many stamps and dies in this adorable stamp set and coordinating framelit set that the possibilities really are endless!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Until the next time...
