Newton's Nook – Let's Be Mermaids

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to be up on the Newton’s Nook blog today featuring this super bright and colorful purr-maid card.

I had a general idea of what I wanted to do with this and it definitely started with deco-foil on that awesome seashells stencil. I spread transfer gel over the stencil and set it aside to dry. Then ran it through my laminator with shattered rainbow deco-foil and look at that awesomeness!!!

Next, I laid out my dies and stamps for a general layout so I could stamp and color my images from Purr-maid and cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I die cut a rounded rectangle from iridescent vellum and used my images for guide where to stamp and heat emboss some fun bubbles and the sentiment. At this point I also die cut my deco-foiled panel with the scalloped rectangle. Both of those are from the Frames & Flags die set. Then I moved on to assembly.

To do this I worked kind of backward. I popped my images up on the vellum panel and then hid glue behind those to adhere it to the seashell panel. Then that whole thing is popped up on a textured teal cardstock panel and finally it’s all attached to a card base.

Last I finished things up with some Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the mermaid tails, glossy accents on the kitty noses, seashells, seahorse and fish, and lastly Unicorn Stickles on the bubbles.

There is so much bright and fun going on with this card. I just love each piece of it! I hope you do too!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
