Creating A Mermaid Slider Card (Saturday Stamp Day)

Happy Saturday! It has been way too long since I shared a Saturday Stamp Day video but since I’m fully enjoying my Summer Break, my video series is back from hiatus! ๐Ÿ™‚ In today’s video I am creating a slider card with the brand new Slide on Over dies from Lawn Fawn along with the Mermaid For You set.

In total I almost spent 2 hours on this project but I had tons of fun doing different techniques. I started out by creating an underwater scene by die cutting a rectangle using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles dies. I wanted to add an extra mermaid/ocean touch so I went ahead and die cut a border using the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 dies.

After the Distress Ink was dry, I pressed my Versamark ink pad onto the blue part and sprinkled on Neutral Ultra Shimmer EP from WOW. This gives a very shimmery and sparkly background which is totally mermaid material! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I colored some images from the Mermaid For You and the Fintastic Friends set from Lawn Fawn with Copics and I die cut them with the coordinating dies.

First, I die cut the shape and then I turned my piece of paper around. I put the penny in the middle so I could figure out how to build my border of foam adhesive to make sure the penny doesn’t fall out. Like I mentioned in the video, I applied some kitchen flour to make sure the penny doesn’t stick to the edges of the foam adhesive. Be sure to watch the video for more information on this technique!

That’s it for now! Thanks so much for reading today’s post and for watching my video. See you soon! xo
