Let’s be mermaids – Under the sea Card Series #7

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry for the delay but the last days of the summer break is crazier than I planned. The weather is still warm here and we try to use it to the max with the kids. But I am here now with 2 pencil coloured cards featuring a sweet stamp and die set from Newton’s Nook Designs called Narly Mermaids.

CARD #1

I stamped and coloured all the 3 mermaids from the set using coloured pencils (not branded but really good quality from our local discount shop). I could not decide which on to use on the card so I came up with a layout which has room for all the three.

I simply cut a wide strip of blue glitter cardstock and added a scalloped black border on both sides. I adhered it to a white card base and stamped a sentiment under it with black ink.

I arranged the mermaids and the tiny fish around them. It was hard not to add anything to the coloured images, but I wanted to keep this card simple.

CARD #2

I did not plan to make another card for today’s post, but I had the narwhal and the starfish left out from the previous card and they looked too cute together.

I created a distressed-stencilled background for them, cut a double stitched circle and white heat embossed a sentiment on it. I gave it a white circle mat and a blue double stitched on too layering a strip of patterned paper in between.

I adhered it all to a light grey stitched rectangle and added a die cut friend sentiment under the focal panel. I felt the style of this die (Gina K Design) matched the embossed sentiment so well.

On this card I could not resist and added a bit of sparkle to the background and glossy accent to the horn and the dots on the starfish. A black glaze pen made their eyes pop.

I hope you like today’s ocean themed inspiration. I plan to continue the series as my time allows as I still have plenty of ideas and stamps I wanted to show you. Let me know in the comments below if you are still interested in mermaids and fishes ūüôā

Thanks for your visit and see you soon,

  1. These under the sea cards are so lovely! It’s so fun to see them colored with pencils on the first card and I love the sparkly background! The little Narwhal with his starfish friend is so cute on the second card! Both are adorable!
