Which are now available in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!

Be A Mermaid Card | Narly Mermaid Stamp Set


For my bit of inspiration, I couldn't pass up creating a card using the Narly Mermaid Stamp Set. I stamped and colored all three mermaids using Chameleon Pens. I then die cut them using the coordinating Narly Mermaids Die Set.

For the background, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the scalloped edge die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I then positioned a wave die from the Sea Borders Die Set onto this piece and ran it through my die cut machine.  I then positioned the die slightly higher and moved it a bit, so it didn't line up exactly with the first cut and die cut the paper again. I repeated this process three times. I then took a foam ink blending tool and applied Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon to the edges of each piece. To give it a more water-like look, I splattered water onto the paper and dabbed it dry with a paper towel.

To complete the card, I put all of the die cut pieces back together and stamped the sentiment to the bottom section. I then adhered the background piece to the card base and attached the mermaid images with double sided foam adhesive.
