Mermaid release from Sweet Manhattan Stamps

Today I am back with a fun new release from Sweet Manhattan Stamps.   I absolutely adore the owner and love all of the product they offer.   Today I have the first 2 cards for this release to share.

I used 179a and 179b, as well as 177 for my first card.

I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Illustrators:

FS2, FS6, FS7, FS8, DP1
AP1, AP3
AB1, AB2, AB3
BP1, BP3, BP5
IB1, IB2, IB3
CT2, CT4, GY4
TN1, TN3, TN5, TN7, TN9

I used some pattern paper Sharie printed and sent me from Digital Curio on Etsy.  This shop has some of the most amazing digital papers to choose from.  I myself have purchased lots from their shop.

I hand cut the sentiment banner and stamped with Splish Splash Aqua from Sweet Manhattan Stamps.

I added some sea shells from 177, and some gems from Pretty Pink Posh from my stash.

My next card was done with some stamping and a bit of masking.   

I cut my card front with a Slim line die from Jaded Blossom and stamped my palm scene 2 x (side by side).   I then masked the hills and ink blended with Spectrum Noir water reactive ink:

Fuschia and Lemon Tonic. 

Next I masked the sky portion and ink blended the hills:

Seal Brown and Friar Brown.

I then added a bit of white gel pen.

I added some gems from Pretty Pink Posh-Party Mix to the card and a banner flag cut by hand for the sentiment.

I love how these cards turned out and can't wait to continue to play with these fun sets.

I hope you enjoyed.   

See you soon!

Sitting Mermaid from La-La Land Crafts

Today I am back with another fun image from La-La Land Crafts- Sitting Mermaid.

Sitting Mermaid comes in both digital stamp and rubber stamp.  I used the digital stamp version and cut with my scan and cut.  

I used the Lets Make a Splash Rubber stamp for the sandcastle as well as the seaweed (also available in digital)

I colored with Spectrum Noir Illustrators.

I used one of the ink blended papers from the Get Inky 6 x 6 paper pack to cut the circle with the Stitched Circles dies, and then cut the matt with Black Cardstock.

I used the Under the Sea dies to add some sealife to the card.

I then created an easel card with black cardstock. 

I used the So Many dots stencil on some coordinating deep aqua cardstock with Oasis Water Reactive Ink from Spectrum Noir.  

I cut the Stitched Pennant dies with some pink cardstock and stamped the sentiment (from the Make a Splash stamp set) and added behind the circles.   

Lastly I added some rhinestones to the headband and some of the sealife dies for added decoration.
