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?
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.
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.
I used silver emboss powder to emboss the Magical day greeting and cut it out with the dies.
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!
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.
I kept the inside very simple... as the outside was so over the top.
This card sparkles and glitters from every angle. I wish you could see it in person.
I used so many dimensionals on this super layered up, magical card. I think I set a record.
Three little Mermaids wishing you a Magical Day. It doesn't get much better than that.
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!
I'll have more Brusho creations for you later this week. So stop back again!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
