Mermaid Friends

One more…

Cupcake Inspirations (#569) theme this round is Mermaids.  The only item I have with Mermaids is the retired Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper and it included the returning colors Berry Burst and Lemon-Lime Twist so I opted to tie into the Sunday Stamps (#309) color scheme.  I swapped out Blueberry Bushel for Night of Navy and included Smoky Slate.  I am also sharing this card with Krafty Chicks (#665) for their All-Occasion theme.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Smoky Slate cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Night of Navy and Silver Wave patterned piece of paper from the retired By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  All stamping was done with Versamark ink and heat-set with Silver Embossing Powder.
    • The sentiment, I love that we are friends, is from the Country Bouquet stamp set.
    • The Bubbles, Coral and Reeds are from the retired Seascape stamp set.
  • Focal Image – Mermaid Friends: Berry Burst and Lemon-Lime Twist Tailed Mermaids were fussy-cut with Paper Snips from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.

All elements were adhered to the card base.  The Mermaids were popped up with Dimensionals.

What a fun card to put togetherTwo good friends having a frolic in the Sea.

  1. Now this is a fun take on all these challenges! I missed the mermaids – what a great idea to use this DSP for that! Your blue swaps works perfectly for this ocean scene, love the kelp and coral additions! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!
