A little mermaid gift for you

Hi folks,

If you are here to check out my GIU Blog Hop post, please scroll down to the previous post.

I'm just popping in today to share another birthday card for another niece.

This one is a fun little mermaid card using some older Echo Park papers from my stash - because, you know, a mermaid card NEEDS beach-y themed papers.

card details:

  • finished size: 5 x 5 inches, white card stock base.
  • patterned paper:  Echo Park Splash (wow! It's from 2011!)
  • stamped image: The Greeting Farm "Oona", coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E11, E01, E00, R20, R0000, BG10, BG11, BG13, Y35, Y38, C1, BV0000, BV000). I also added some sparkle with my shimmer brush.
  • sentiment: CTMH Petite Perks "A Little Love" (contact me if you want to find out how to get this handy mini stamp set)
  • layout: Tuesday Throwdown #311
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hi folks!

Today I'm taking part in a little Growing In Unity Blog Hop where past Growing In Unity Gals take the chance to share with you again a creation using our favourite Unity Stamps!

Be sure to visit each of the blogs on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win!

If you came here from Rachel Bogner's blog, then you are on the right track.

Today, I'm sharing a card using one of my fave Angie Girls "Diana Girl".

Did anyone else watch "Wonder Woman" when they were a kid? Yup! I did! Maybe that's why I love this image. I had some fun with this card, using a clear acetate overlay with some gold dots on it to give this card some pop.

I won't keep you long. Be sure to hop along to your next stop at Deirdere's blog after you leave a comment!

And if you get lost along the way, the full list of stops is right here:

Have a Happy Day

Hi folks,

I had a busy day in my craft room getting cards made for some upcoming birthdays. I'll be sharing them over the course of the next few days.

This is a card for my niece who has a birthday coming in October. She will be twelve this year so I struggled a little with what to do for her card. I didn't want it too be cutesy and I didn't want it to be too grown up. I think it came out just how I wanted.

I took my inspiration for this card from pg. 40 of the CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book.
