It's a Mermaid kind of Day

Here's a gorgeous mermaid from Sweet Pea Stamps artist Joanne Schempp.  She's called Fluff Dry.  What a beautiful digital image.  I printed her up and cut her out using one of the newest Spellbinders that both embossed and cuts.    I chose rich red Copic Markers to color her up and used a great saying from Cosmo Crickett to go with her "Dare to Live Your Dream."  She looks like she is ready!
Those wonderful corners are from Marianne Designs.   Here's a closeup of this gorgeous stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps:

Be sure and check out all of Joanne Schempp's amazing images, she has a bunch of beautiful mermaid images as well as other amazing lady images, both in rubber stamp as well as digital stamp format.

In addition to that stunning image, let me show you another new image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Elaine Cox.  This image just came out and she is called Elinora.  There's just something about this image that really caught my eye.  I knew I had to have her when I saw the stamp.  Something, maybe different or quirky that just made me like her a lot.

Here's a close up of the stamp so you can see her beautiful detailing, I love the design added in the background.  You can also see how I colored in her eyes to match her tail and her little red pearls.  Doesn't she look like she's ready for some "Great Adventures?"
Just wonderful.  There's several new mermaid images out from Elaine Cox right now.  You can get them both in rubber stamp format as well as digital format.

Have a great weekend everyone.  Happy card making.

Cheers, Holley


  1. Holley, these are two gorgeous cards. I love the vibrant reds you used on the first card and it works so well with the black. There is something that talks to me with regard to Elinora. She's a beautiful image but I think it's the addition of the background. You have made a stunning card. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  2. Gorgeous colouring on both these images Holley... I especially like the second one. :)

    Such striking colour schemes on both cards too and I love the Spellbinders die you used.


  3. You are busy Girl. They are both gorgeous Holley.
