Hello, everyone! I hope you are all doing well! It’s Jenny here today, and I’d like to share couple of mermaid cards I created! Have you checked our new Mermaid Vibes stamp set and the Coordinating Dies? It’s a gorgeous set, filled with many many beautiful images.
I created 2 cards featuring the Mermaid Vibes set with fun ocean themed backgrounds.
Here’s the first card!
I started the card by stamping the images from our new Mermaid Vibes stamp set on a smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the images with various Copic Markers, fussy cut, and set it aside. I didn’t have it when I was creating this card, but The Mermaid Vibes Coordinating Dies are available in shop now.
Then, I created the beach scene with Copic Markers. I also added clouds on top of the panel with the stencil, gently swiping Cali Blue Dye ink using the Clarity Stencil Brush. I stamped few seagulls from our Palm Tree Stamp set in our Noir Dye ink. I also stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, and heat embossed in white. I die cut the panel using the largest die from our (Small)Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, and adhered it on a white A2 sized card base.
Next, I adhered all the fussy cut images onto the card, some popped up using the foam tape. I added more interest on the images with the white gel pen and the Sparkle pen. I adhered some Glass Slippers Confetti and the Silver Holographic sequins to dress up the card.
I created a underwater scene for the 2nd card!
I started off by stamping the mermaid and couple of accessory images from the Mermaid Vibes set on a smooth white cardstock using the Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I added texture on the tail with the Copic Blender solution the 0 marker. I also added some dots with white and Silver gel pens and shimmer with the Sparkle pen. I fussy cut the images and put them aside.
For the background, I scribbled some Zig markers (036 Light Blue, 031 Cobalt Blue, and 030 Blue) on a watercolor cardstock and blended with clear water. I also added some droplets for more texture. When the panel was completely dry, I stamped the sea critters and plants images from the Mermaid Vibes set in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I also stamped the sentiment, “sending mermaid kisses and starfish wishes” on the vellum, heat embossed in silver, and trimmed it down to a thin banner. I wrapped the sentiment banner around the background panel and fixed it on the back with piece of a tape.
On a white A2 sized card base, I adhered some strips of our Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper. Then I adhered the background panel on the card, popped up with the fun foam. Next, I adhered the Mermaid image and finished the card by adding some Mixed Dew Drops.
