Stenciled Mermaid Tag With Embossing Paste (Saturday Stamp Day)

Happy Saturday, everybody! While I was browsing through my stamps, I saw the Mermaid For You stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I only used it once this far, so I decided to pull it out again to create a fun mermaid card. Lots of ideas popped into my head when I was looking at the set. I finally decided I wanted to make a dreamy mermaid tag with a stencil, embossing paste and glitter.

I just love how dreamy and sparkly the mermaid tag looks! The best part? It wasn’t even that hard to make. Simply die cut a tag or any other shape and grab the Madison stencil from Winnie & Walter. I created my own colored embossing paste with white embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi with three different Distress Ink colors. After creating my ombré pattern, I added a little bit of Clear Rock Candy glitter from Tim Holtz.

I heat embossed a gold sentiment with Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle from WOW on a piece of vellum. After assembling the card, I added some sparkle here and there with some pretty sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards and with some clear sequins from The Ton.

That’s it for this week’s Saturday Stamp Day video. Thanks so much for watching. See you soon! Xo
