Birthday Wishes......

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!

So I was very excited to receive The Greeting Farm's 
new mermaid stamps in the mail just recently. The 1st
set I played with was the Little Mermaids stamp set and dies.
My Mom's birthday is at the end of this month so this is who I 
made this cute card for.  I had fun playing with all my new dies 
and stamps.  I water colored the background using my Zig
Clean Color markers on Tim Holtz water color paper. I sprayed
it with water mixed with perfect pearls to give it a 
shimmery look too.  I created a really cute inside to this too
but I forgot to take a picture of it darn it!!!

Tank You.....

Hi Crafty Friends!!!
Hope everyone had a Fabulous weekend!!!
Still doing the remodel at our house but I 
was able to crank out some "Tank You" you cards!
I have several people to Thank for the wonderful 
Birthday gifts I received recently.  I saw this wonderful
card on Pinterest by Jessica Spencer not long ago 
using the cute Fintastic Friends set and I wanted to 
try my hand at casing it!!  Lawn Fawn stamps are so 
cute and practically anything you make with them comes out
Adorable!!!  I used the Merman Lawn Fawn ink for the 
bubbles inside the heart.  I used a Spellbinder heart die
to cut out a heart and used the negative piece to 
stamp all the bubbles in the heart shape. I layerd that
front panel on Stampin' Up Pool Party card stock and 
thought it matched quite well with the Merman ink.
After I colored up all the fish bowls and placed the 
fish inside I put glossy accents all over them and let
them dry to make them look like glass bowls.  I love 
the way they turned out.  




I heat embossed all the sentiments too!!
I am entering my card into a few challenges:

Marker Pop ~ #99 It's all about the die cuts
7 Kids College Fund ~ #155 Anything Goes
Lawn Scaping challenge ~ #133 Mood Board Inspired

Word Art Wed. ~ wks #238-239
