Magical Mermaid Birthday Card - Kylie's Training Blog Hop

   Hi crafty people! Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Monthly Blog Hop!!! I love doing this hop each month as it is always so fun to see what demos from around the globe have made. For me sometimes just seeing someone else's card design can inspire my next project. Does this happen to you too? I've decided since Summer has finally arrived that I wanted to use the Magical Mermaid stamp set and was so happy that it was carried over into the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog. Here is my card.....

   The very first time I saw the Perennial Essence DSP (Designer Series Paper), and in particular this piece, I thought it looked like the water. The combo of the greens, blues, and purples is so beautiful and I knew I wanted to use it for this mermaid.

   I used the Stampin' Blends to color her tail and hair. I had fun blending the colors together to give a variance that matches the waters around her. I also heat embossed with the new Shimmer Black and White Embossing Powders. I wish these pictures would show it more, but they both just sparkle so much. I used the Rectangle Stitched dies to make the banner. Here is a link to see how I did that.
   I also used the Clear Wink of Stella on the mermaid's tail and hair and you can see a little of it in the above photo. You can really see the embossing I did with the Shimmer Black embossing powder. I also added some sequins and rhinestones around on the front too.

     I kept it very simple on the inside because of how much is on the front. I just stamped the underwater seaweed and sandy bottom leaving plenty of room for a birthday message to your special someone. Thank you so much for coming to my blog and please continue to the next person in our hop to see some more amazing projects.
