Cards with the Daydreaming Mermaid Stamp Set and Tsukineko Inks
It's August, and I'm trying to flip into Autumn mode - but I just can't do it yet. So to keep the summer spirit alive a little bit longer, I'm sharing two beach-themed cards created by Teresa Abajo using the Mermaid Stamp Set. The first one she made by ripping papers and layering them which echos the feeling of waves. Then she stamped the images with two colors of Tsukineko StazOn (Azure - the dark blue, and Teal blue - the paler blue), and added a touch of twine to complete a summery-nautical feel.
The second card she used the twine again, and stamped the shell plate onto paper, framed it with black cardstock and adhered to it another piece of white cardstock that was splatted and also stamped with an anchor.
How are you keeping your summer alive? On a side note, Teresa lives in Australia, where she created these beautiful cards in the dead of winter - if you like her designs stop by her blog and say hi.

An Art Journal Page with the Mermaid Stamp Set
Summer has got ahold of of me. I have been working on new images - that I hope will be ready to be uploaded onto the website in August. In the meantime I want to share an art journal page from Caro. I always love to see what different artists do when given the same stamps to work with. Here Caro has used the Daydreaming Mermaid Stamp Set to create an art journal page, as well as two little Moo cards.
Caro used paint dabbers for the background inspired by a video she saw and she colored the mermaid with Neocolor II. Below are two little Moo cards. Moo cards are really fun to make - there's more about Moo cards here.
So if you have some time, check out the moo card site - looks like they have quite a few fun challenges going on. Happy Stamping!

Bon Voyage Cards with the Mermaid Set
Happy Monday! I have two samples made with the nautical cling foam stamp set. I used the shell stamp as a background stamped the mermaid and did some layering.
Here's another super-quick and easy card using the cling foam set. Just stamp the sea horse in three different colors and add some twine and Bon Voyage at the bottom. I would love to see what beautiful creations you can come up with using the 8 stamps included in the set...

Mermaid Rubber Stamp Set Release
I'm excited to share that we have something new in the shop. I have put together a group of 8 images that will be sold as the our first cling-foam rubber stamp collection. I was feeling kind of "beachy" and went with a nautical/mermaid/bon voyage theme. They come trimmed on cling foam, so all you need is an acrylic block and ink and you are ready for card making or mixed media art. So... here's the first set!
I love the daydreaming mermaid. Here is sample created by Amy Nieman. I will be sharing more samples soon - but I would also LOVE to see what you make with this set.
