Celebrate Unicorns and Mermaids

Celebrate Unicorns! Celebrate Mermaids!

Wasn't really having a clear vision of anything when I started punching circles and picking out papers and color combinations.  I really wanted to play with my favorite colors ---Pink and Green and I did.  I usually hoard my DSP paper, but I know I can order more if I really ever went thought it!  

For the Mermaids I wanted to do something with the DSP.  The background, use the mermaids on the paper. Add the glitter paper.  Create my own mermaid.  



I know I am being "lazy" to not post all the products I used, but I wanted to share my latest creations.  Actually this was the January card gut challenge from my upline.  I picked my stamp set, decided to use the markers to color and the clear embellishments to add a bit of something. I used it on the end of the wand, along with adding wink of stella to the wand and horn and the crushed curry colored stars!

All the items I use are current Stampin' Up! products on this card.  If you check out the occasions catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog you will find most of it.  I already have my next order starting to stack up!  You can order from the company straight through my demonstrator website.  This time of year, the more you spend the more free stuff you end up getting in your box (and now you know how I got hooked to be a demonstrator, I want it all).


So much fun coloring and trying to coordinate how to place on the paper.  Figuring out how to make a brick wall background --- still not sure if I was making it or breaking the machine, but it has the texture!!!  Using the wink or stella to add some glitter and shine.  Trying to cut the DSP so that I had not used up anything "good" and realizing now I could have just cut some thin strips and not used a larger piece! doh!!!  

Enjoying Sale-a-Bration this year and the occasions catalog.  Have more to post that I made from this set, it really seems to be my favorite, I have not even touched a couple sets I ordered because I keep pulling this one out!!!

Go to my Stampin' Up! demonstrator site and look at the current catalog and clearance items. They are always changing.  I am thinking about the heart punch for half off since it is almost February and I don't have one, I could use it to make heart shaped window boxes with my treat containers!
