Birthday Splash!

Hey there friends!! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. We had sunshine and rain- but we managed to get out a bit, and even slept in the tent in our backyard Saturday night. The kids loved it, but I don't know if I'd say tenting is my favourite thing, lol.

Today I'm sharing this adorable Mermaid Kisses Digital Stamp set from the Pretty Cute Stamps store that I used to create this card. I opened the mermaid digital stamp in PicMonkey, a free online photo editing program and layered on the present and sentiment before colouring in the background with alcohol based markers.  You could also print out your images and layer them as you wish. Check out the TUTORIAL I created here to show you how easy this is!

I added Stickles and sequins from 28 Lilac Lane and then edged my oval with Versamark and silver embossing powder to add lots of shiny sparkly fun!

Inside, I used the sentiment from the Merman Digital Stamp set. 

Here's a look at the digital stamp sets I used:

  1. What an AWESOME underwater card! The scene looks awesome and I think your mermaid is so sweet! ADORABLE!!! And I'm with you about the sleeping in the tent! LOL Haven't done it in forever since my boys are bigger... but when we did.. ugh it was hard on the back.. until I bought a Blow up mattress to take with me... not as good as your bed at home but ten times better than sleeping on the ground! LOL Have a great day! :)
