You're so Mermazing Birthday Card. Stamping with Friends Colouring Blog Hop. September 2021

 Good Evening Everyone,

Today I'm hopping with the Stamping with Friend group and this hop is all about Colouring. Those of you who follow me will know I love to colour so I was so excited that this theme came up.

I decided to ink up this super cute Mermaid and give her centre stage over background of brightly coloured waves? what do you think?

The DSP is from the Beautifully Penned DSP pack with is currently FREE. I think this is a lesser used pattern as the other side, but it works perfectly here


Coastal Cabana Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Bermuda Bay Card Stock

1pc - 2 3/8" x 2 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 2 1/2" x 2 3/4"


Gold Foil

scrap strips

Beautifully Penned DSP

1pc - 2 7/8" x 5 5/8"


Take your coastal cabana card stock and fold along the score line. With your Detailed Trio Punch round the top right and bottom left corners. Do the same for the basic white piece and add this to the inside of the card.

Using a selection of Stampin Blends, colour in the wave patterned DSP from the Beautifully Penned DSP pack. Adhere a thing strip of gold foil to the top and the bottom of this panel then add this to the centre of the card front.

Stamp the mermaid onto the remaining piece of basic white and colour in, again with Blends. Round the same corners as above on this piece and the same with the BErmuda Bay card stock. Layer these together and add to the card front over to the right hand side.

On scraps of Basic white, stamp the two sentiments, trim and layer onto scraps of gold foil. Then add these to the left hand side of the card front.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and will give it a go, but for now please continue through the hop to get some more amazing colouring inspiration. Kelly Palce Taranto is up next
