Red, White and Blue........

Red, White and Blue is what it's all about for me in this months Challenge Reminder post!
Yes you read that right this is the reminder post - which is letting you know that you are running out of time to enter the Let's Craft and Create Challenge #127.

The theme for this months challenge is 'Just Beachey' &/or Red, White and Blue......as I'd done Miss Mermaid Miranda for the previous challenge I decided to stick with the Red, White and Blue theme.  And here is what I came up with........


I created some depth by using a die cut in the center of my card and mounting that onto some thin chipboard. I then layered red patterned paper behind it and added a further blue star using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to seeing what you create!

Die effects - Mermaid Miranda

Hey Everyone!
I'm back today with a wee tutorial.  Every now and again I get asked to make specific themed cards and you guessed it...this time I was asked to create a Mermaid card for a little girls birthday.  I created a few different kinds but this one was by far my favourite.
Introducing Mermaid Miranda!

I created the background effect by die cutting one bubble set from standard white cardstock and a second from the background paper.  I then mounted these onto a card base.

From here we start adding the layers.  Using some tacky glue I've added a bit of muslin cloth, scrunching it up for some texture.
I thought it needed something else to lift it a bit so added some bling dots around and slightly underneath the cloth too.

Now add you mermaid and sentiment and you're done!

Wishing you a fabulous day!
