Mermaid Birthday Wishes Cards and Clutter
Using Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends - Mermaid Scales
Hi everybody, Cheryl taking over the Doodle blog again today! 😊 Last time I posted, I had a princess birthday card
for my daughter, Paige. This time, I have a birthday card for my
other daughter, McKenna (they are twins).
originally I wasn't sure if I was going to do another shaker card but
my husband saw the princess one and told me I couldn't not make a second
one, lol. The girls are both in love with Ariel from The Little Mermaid
which made my coloring choices pretty easy.
my card, I stamped the little mermaid on bristol smooth cardstock and
then masked her with a post it note. Then I used a stencil and two
colors of blue to make the background behind her. I colored her with zig
clean color markers and a bit of water. The sentiment was stamped with
black ink several times using my misti tool. Note to self: let the
distress oxide inks dry completely before trying to stamp on top.
the shaker portion, I used turquoise cardstock and die cut the center
portion out. Then I adhered acetate to the inside and layered foam tape
along the edges. To assemble, I added the sparkle blend on top of the
mermaid and laid the window panel over it. The shells along the edges
were stamped with the same distress oxide inks that were used for the
Such a pretty blend! Can you see the little fishes and ducky? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello Doodle friends, its time for some Wild Rose Studio inspiration! I decided to get a jump start on my Christmas cards, with a little Christmas in July, WRS style and created using some adorable stamps and pretty Christmas papers from Wild Rose Studio!
For my first card, I chose the Snowman Family stamp set and a sheet of pretty snowflake paper in non-traditional colors from the Frosted Lacepaper pack. I stamped the images with VersafineOnyx Blackink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored them with a combination of Arteza real brush pens and Distress Markers.
I am absolutely thrilled to share my first project for the Summer Term Kindred Stamps Design Team! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with such a talented group of women, representing such a unique and fantastic brand. I'll be sharing lots of inspiration over the next 3 months, so be sure to follow my blog!
Next, I took the wheel part of my reveal wheel, divided it into quarters with a light pencil line & took the small, supporting images from the stamp set, stamping one in each quarter. I should have traced my reveal opening to make sure they were in the right place, but I didn't--luckily I got them placed pretty close to in the right place--whew! I also stamped the main, Kraken image on a scrap of 65# white cardstock & I colored the images, and the background of my wheel, using Copic Markers.
I assembled my wheel, following the directions in this Lawn Fawn video, and before attaching the front panel, I used a wave die from my stash to cut down the vellum, and adhered it to the front panel using glue dots. Next, I stamped the "What do sea monsters eat for dinner?" sentiment above my reveal window in Blueprint Sketch ink & added the detail frame included in the die set, trimming the waves with a kraft knife. I adhered my Kraken to the ocean panel and added details and bubbles with my white Sakura Gelly Roll pen and mounted the whole panel on an ice blue, 120# card base.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my first Kindred Stamps project! I had a blast working with Mythical Kraken and can't wait to create more inspiration projects for you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for visiting the the blog! Come back soon, Happy Crafting!
