More Sweet November Mermaids

Happy Monday! This is the last of my scheduled posts! We have been away on a spur of the moment beach holiday for a few days and before I left, I scheduled all my posts! Fingers crossed that it has all worked and I will respond to any questions that have been left  in the next few days! :)

This week, the Stamp & Create product spotlight is all things “Summer Themed”. You will be able to receive up to a 25% discount on all summer themed stamps and products!  I couldn’t resist creating another explosion box to showcase more of these gorgeous Sweet November stamps! I had to really modify it from the original dimensions so that the mermaid would fit inside!



Inside the box, Fanthom is set amongst some swirling coral which was made using champagne net and strips of acetate. I didn’t have time before I left to create a tutorial but if you want one, please let me know and I will create one for you all! The only thing that I don’t like about the project is that I tried using a crafters glue that was recommended to me and after it dried, it has warped the paper a little. Oh, well, live and learn!

Remember that each month during the summer, all orders of $30 or more will be entered into a drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to Stamp and Create!!

Thanks for stopping by my little blog and I hope you have an “inky” day!

Me, me...I would love to see a tutorial!! :-)
This ROCKS!!!! I just love how you used the different mermaid and made them go together so well! Your coloring is GORGEOUS!! This really makes me smile :-)))
By the way, I have never found liquid glue that doesn't warp paper...I stick with Scor-Tape for everything (except working with need liquid glue for that).
I hope your trip is going well!!

This is such a lovely idea - I have the first 4 mermaids but haven't had a chance to ink them yet. You are giving me more & more to think about.

Me 2! Me 2! I'd love to see a video on how you did that. I'm a visual learner and without a video I'll never figure it out.
It really is quite beautiful.
