Video Tutorial Stampin Up Magical Mermaid

Video Tutorial Stampin Up Magical Mermaid

The Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin Up is a lovely set to create some great cards with.  They are ideal for the youngsters, teenagers and every person who loves the magical quality of this mythical sea creature.

I have created a video to show you how I created the triple mermaid in this card using a masking technique to prevent the images covering each other and giving the illusion of each mermaid being behind the other.


*apologies for my head appearing in this video I hope it doesn't detract from your enjoyment

Stampin Up Floral Statements

Stampin Up Floral Statements

Following on from my video where I showed you how to colour the lovely rose image with a vibrant red I thought I would show you the two cards in the video and how I finished them.

This image I had only just coloured one of the roses so I decided to make the rest monochrome using smoky slate and the aqaupainter and just coloured the complete area apart from the one rose. I then just added a small ring to pop out the rose by cutting two concentric circles in black cardstock. A simple yet effective card and very easy to achieve.

This image I just added the sentiment from the Hello Sunshine thinlets dies in sweet sugarplum and then stamped around the edges in the floral leaves from the Timeless Textures stamp set.



These other two images were on the video so as you can see there are so many different combinations to create a beautiful card with the stamp set and I am sure it will become a very popular set in the new Annual Catalogue.

Magical Mermaid Take Three

How much do I love mermaids!

It's funny how whenever I get a new stamp set it always then becomes my favourite, until I get another new set and then that becomes my favourite.  However there are some sets like the Magical Mermaid which will always be a firm favourite. Why? well just take a look at this lovely card I created.
I stamped the image three times using a mask so they image didn't overlap and then coloured using the Aquapainter and our lovely ink pads.

So have a magical day and please if you havn't subscribed to my blog or YouTube channel please do as I post regularly on both with lots of new project ideas.

Stampin Up Triple Layered Background using Ribbon of Courage hearts

Triple Layered Background using Ribbon of Courage Video Tutorial

This video tutorial shows you how to create a background using the hearts from the Ribbon of Courage is three different colours, Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum and Pool Party.  The cardstock is then cut at 1.5" and then mounted on Fresh Fig at 1.75" to form a matt. I have shown a variety of embellishments using our thinlits dies or if you don't have a Big Shot then how to keep it simple.

This trimmer is, in my opinion, one of the best on the market and is one of my best sellers.  It is light weight and very easy to use with a simple slide mechanism so is great for people who struggle with strength issues in their hands.  The blades are easily replaced and there is  scoring blade included.  At only £27 it is very affordable and has an extending arm to take 12" x 12" cardstock.  This item is always very popular and sells out quickly as soon as stocks are in proving that it is one of the best on the market.

The Thinlets dies which I used for the embellishments in this video are

Stampin Up Magical Mermaid

Stampin Up Magical Mermaid

Who doesn't like a mermaid? There is something just wonderful about mermaids and the sea and all the lovely myths and fairy tales that surround mermaids.  I was super excited when Stampin Up launched this Magical Mermaid stamp set.  It has a background sand stamp with little shells, crabs and starfish in and the fronds of sea foliage really give the mermaid a watery underwater feel.


So if you are as entranced with this Magical Mermaids stamp set then just click on the link above or visit my shop to order yours.

Happy stamping.
