You Are Mermazing Card

I used this cutie on a birthday card I needed to send, and made a second card with a fun sentiment.

I stamped the rock first, then masked it off to blend the sky and water. The mermaid was colored with Copics and die cut, but then I fussy cut it with detail scissors right against the embossing. I colored the raw edge with a black marker. I used an embossing folder on the water part of the card.

Bermuda Bay, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Copic B02, BG15, BV00, C3, E11, E21, E23, E51, V04, 100, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, Smokey Gray, dies – Lawn Fawn, embossing folder – Darice, sequins – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

Thinking of You Lighthouse Card

I had the lighthouse already stamped & embossed, just waiting to be colored. I tried to make it into an anniversary card, but none of my anniversary sentiments would fit around the lighthouse.

Foiled Sea Shells Encouragement Card

My laminator was still out from yesterday’s foiled card.

Dare I try another?

I had recently bought a container of Deco Foil Transfer Gel. It is used with stencils. When it is dry, you put it through the laminator with foil.

So, I flipped through my stencils and picked the shells. And I had this opal foil that I loved, but was not horribly successful with.

OH. MY.

The photo above looks a little “Meh”, doesn’t it? You can see it is shiny, the colors seem to fade on the kraft paper.

BUT…catch it at an angle!

Supplies:  Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Newton’s Nook, Deco Foil Transfer Gel – Therm O Web iCraft, opal foil – Therm O Web iCraft, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
