Oh my gosh I got some brand new goodies that I was able to pre-order from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog in my hands late last week and I had to play with my absolute favorite ones right away – they are featured in the Myths & Magic Suite and they are so much fun!

The Magical Day stamp set features a sweet Mermaid, a Dragon, a Wizard, a Knight and my absolute fav one that my girls will go crazy for – a UNICORN stamp – yay!!!  The suite has a matching set of Framelits Dies plus sparkly Glitter Paper & Washi Tape AND the most beautiful pack of DSP too – I’m in heaven!

The card I am showing you today features the super cute Mermaid with her Seahorse friend and I think this would make a cute birthday card for a little girl…


I have a Project Sheet for you detailing all measurements, the colors I used & full instructions on how to make this card below – just look for the red words to find it.

Isn’t she sweet?  I textured that bottom panel using a new Embossing Folder called Simple Stripes for a bit of a paneling look and that fantastic sentiment is from the set Magical Day – in fact ALL the stamps on this card are from that stamp set – it’s fab!


The frame around the Mermaid was cut using two different sized Circle Punches and some new Glitter Paper from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper Pack – in that pack you get this dusted white glitter paper plus blue & green too!

And check out that bubbly patterned paper – isn’t that fun?  The bubbles on there are also glittery!


The Mermaid is on a watercolor washed background that I created by making wide sweeping movements onto a piece of scrap white cardstock with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker and I then shaped it with a 2″ Circle Punch…


I stamped the Mermaid onto a piece of Vellum cardstock and colored her in on the reverse side using more Blends Markers so that I didn’t dull down the stamped image – I then shaped her with the same size Circle Punch and attached her to the watercolor washed base…


I dotted around some Glitter Enamel Dots and Rhinestone Jewels for even more sparkle and added some fun ribbons too…


I absolutely love how this sweet card turned out – and now I am working on cards using the other stamps in this set – the unicorn one is up next!
