an exclusive line of designer papers to match our glitters and embossing powders.

this month we are featuring three fun new stamp sets by artists MICHELLE PERKETT and BECCY MUIR.

and here is what i've created with their new stamps sets -


i beased my layout on the JANUARY sketch from MY CREATIVE SKETCHES.

some close ups from my project:

i used two different masks from THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP {mini flying geese and mini circle explosion} with modelling paste to alter my background paper.

i stamped the fancy shell from the SNS mermaid kisses #529 stamp set with a light brown ink and decorated it with a white pearl. i used RANGER INK liquid pears buttercup to decorate my paper layers.

to create my embellishments i die cut various beach themed shapes using CUTTLEBUG dies, white cardstock and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES adhesive sheets. after my die cuts where ready, i just peeled back the second protective sheet to reveal the adhesive surface and sprinkled different colors glitters and embossing powders on them.

for the sea shells i used peruvian lily velvet glitter (microfine) [GM2014].

for the sea stars i used and the large shell i used a combination of CAPPUCCINO STAR embossing powder [EP434] and SUNSET opaque glitter [G1040].

i coloured the large blue shell with ICE RINK embossing powder [EP408]; for the the small sea stars i used MELON TWIST embossing powder [EP402] and CAYENNE STAR embossing powder [EP435].

for my title i stamped the sentiment from the SNS mermaid kisses #529 stamp set with VERSAMARK ink on white cardstock and heat embossed it with FIERY BROWN embossing powder [EP369].

to colour my mermaid i used various colours SNS embossing powders and glitters and COPIC sketch markers - grey and green.

i stamped the image with MEMENTO INK "rich cocoa" on a white cardstock. i used ICE RINK embossing powder [EP408] to colour the mermaids tail and peruvian lily velvet glitter (microfine) [GM2014] for the small flowers. then i added HIT the BEACH embossing powder [EP394] to the hair. i coloured the stone with a grey COPIC sketch marker and used DIAMOND DUST chunky semi-transparent glitter [G1116] for the sea foam and MEDITERRANEAN STAR embossing powder [EP429] for the sea.

here is a complete list with all the SNS products i used on my layout:
