I just love this La la land crafts stamp of mermaid Marci. It is always so much fun to colour in and create with her. I did this card for a friend who was leaving and she loves wearing flowers in her hair. The base card is from a pink pack by Kaszazz. I embossed the white card on the cuttlebug to create the frame. The mermaid is cut out and stuck down. (I think) The writing is just mine. The flower is created using retro daisy punches, spritz them with water (not too much) and then using tweezers, curl them into the centre of each petal. This gives 'sausage' type rolls of each petal. When you've done 3 large and 2 medium , then you're ready to build the flower. Finish it off with a diamante or some enamel accents.
The image was coloured in with Tria markers.
Hope you enjoyed and are feeling inspired to create !

I'd like to challenge you today to look in your scraps draw, find some patterned paper and see if you can use it on a card.... centre everything around this paper. Have fun !
Have a great weekend.

When I got this great castle stamp, I had no idea how I was going to use it! This card just evolved over time. I coloured in the castle using Tria markers, the ivy, which is a separate Kaszazz stamp and the little front mushroom were all in tria markers. I then used the brick embossing folder for the cuttlebug and created a texture behind. The word " magical moments' is a kaszazz stamp.
Once all the elements of this card were all together, I added sparkle using ice stickles so that it gave it a more magical feeling. I think the challenge we face with some stamps is to see how many ways we can use them. Do you have a stamp that you're not sure you know what to do with?? Why don't you share and lets see if we can come up with some suggestions.
Well, I hope you have a magical week filled with sparkle.
