clean & simple mermaid card + mft june countdown day 5

Does anyone else think it's going to be the summer of mermaids & Barbie pink? I certainly do! And I'm excited to include those things in my cardmaking so I'm thrilled about one of the new MFT Stamps sets about to hit the shop in the June 2023 release...

How cute is the Mermaid For Each Other set?!

Clean & simple is my go-to cardmaking style so I had to create a CAS card with the new Mermaid For Each Other set. I used the wavy die from the Island Paradise set to create a DIY cardstock stencil and then ink blended the ocean with Distress Oxide inks.

Then I stamped, die cut and colored a mermaid & a jellyfish from the Mermaid For Each Other set.

Once the ink blended ocean was dry, I stamped a few starfish and foam mounted the jellyfish & mermaid on top. 

Quick tip...if you want to stamp over Distress Oxide ink blending, make sure it is dry or the stamped images will appear faded.

Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a minute to see more of the June release.

Thanks for stopping by!
