Shell Yeah! Mermaid Shaker Card with Amanda!

August 14, 2019

Hey Roadies!

I’m so excited I was asked to share my projects with you for the next few months!  It’s going to be so much fun!

Now… onto my first project that I get to share with you!

I started with a piece of 110# cardstock.  I placed the Lacey’s DIY Window Dies – Straight Edge on my cardstock using Purple tape to keep them in place.

After die cutting them,  I used a Sharpie marker to create my own dotted border by hand.

For all of the following steps, I used the absolutely adorable Shell Yeah stamp set.

On one of my small squares that came out of the frame die, I stamped “Shell Yeah” with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I used this stamp pad specifically because I knew I was going to color the square with Copic markers and didn’t want my inked image to get ruined.

For my large square and the 2 small squares, I blended Copic markers to create a rainbow background.

I stamped my mermaids with Memento black ink as well.

I colored all my mermaids with Copic markers.

Skin:E000, E00, E21, RV10               Hair: YR20, E51, E53, E55                 Rock: T0, T2

Purples: V04, V09                 Yellows: Y11, Y13          Blue Greens: BG05, BG09, BG 11, BG34

Oranges: YR02, YR07, YR09              Pinks: RV04, RV10, RV13            YGs: YG21, YG03, YG17

I fussy cut those lovelies out with some detail scissors.

Once my backgrounds were dry enough, I stamped the sea plants and the bubbles.

I glued down these AMAAAAZZZINNGG Flat Back Bubbles.  I seriously want to use these on every project ever.  They’re gorgeous!

To make my shakers:

I glued down each of my square backgrounds.  Then, I placed 3D foam adhesive strips around each of my squares (leaving no gaps).  I filled the squares up with some glitter and sequins.  I pulled off the paper backing of my adhesives and placed my clear acrylic squares on top.

I placed more 3D adhesive on to my black background cardstock and adhered my framed white cardstock to it.

I used 3D foam dots to adhere my mermaids.  I added some more glitz with these Deluxe Angie Rainbow Gems and Aurora Large Deluxe Gems.

I grabbed 2 of the sentiments from the same Shell Yeah stamp set to heat emboss with white powder.  I used my handy dandy scissors to cut them down and make them into ribbons.  I adhered them with some 3d foam strip adhesives.

And voila!!  Here are some close-ups:

Thanks so much for reading my very first blog post with Ink Road Stamps!!
