The Rabbit Hole Designs June Release Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of The Rabbit Hole Design's June Release!
Wasn't yesterday so much fun! In keeping with the beach theme
today The Rabbit Hole is releasing 2 more stamp sets that 
will go swimmingly with your beach collection!

For all the mermaid lovers out there, "Mermaid Hair" is just for you!
Can you say..... Mermaid hair, don't care!
Look at this adorable mermaid! She is just too sweet and her 
3 little fish friends and tiny jellyfish compliment her so perfectly!

I really enjoyed creating with this stamp set.  There are so many fun ways you 
can color her hair and her tail and those cute little fishies! For my first card I 
did some watercoloring over a background die from Reverse Confetti
called the Scalloped Cover Panel. I used some Distress Inks in blues and greens
to mimic the ocean and then layered it over a sea foam green card base.

For the sparkly waves under my mermaid I used a wave die from 
The Cats Pajamas and cut out some chunky glitter paper.
The cute little fishies were the perfect addition to my ocean scene.
I white heat embossed a part of the sentiment from the stamp set
on to black paper and layered it over a "hugs" word die cut in gold foil.
I also added some sparkly liquid Stickles to my mermaid and her fish friends!

For my second mermaid card I went into rainbow mode!

I really wanted my mermaid to have a rainbow colored tail and once I colored
her, the rainbow background just fell into place.
I just adore the new Summer Splash patterned paper pack from Sunny Studios!
Those cute little fishies got a semi rainbow colored theme as well.
The panel with the mermaid and the rainbow background panel were
I think it adds to the whimsical nature of this card.
I finished off the card with some White Jewels from 
Kat Scrappiness and the card was done!

The second stamp set for today, "By The Shore",  features yet another little sweetie!
Can't you just hear the ocean in that sweet shell she is holding!
This cute little stamp set comes with 2 punny sentiments and the cutest 
little sailboat and seagull on a rock!

My first card using this stamp set also gave me the chance to use some fun
patterned paper behind my little beach cutie!

I started out by stamping the image onto a small scalloped panel
from Reverse Confetti.  Once I colored everything with my Copic markers
I sponged the edges of the panel with some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.
Once again I chose some pretty paper from the Sunny Studios 
Summer Splash patterned paper pack and I cut out a panel using the 
Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies from Kat Scrappiness.
I layered everything over an embossed piece of white card stock and
placed it all on a teal card base.  For some extra fun I added some
some seashell and sand dollar die cuts from an old Cuttlebug set I had in my stash.
The sentiment was stamped in black on white card stock and matted
with the same teal card stock as the card base. 
I'm loving all the bright tropical colors on this card and the fun layers!

Now on to my second card using the By The Shore stamp set.
I thought it would be fun to make a round easel card and combine a few
Rabbit Hole stamp sets on one card. 

I honestly got the idea for this card when I was looking at the sentiments
in the Sassy Sentiments stamp set. I thought it would be fun to combine
the 2 girls from today's stamp sets on to one card and use that great
"Friends make it easy to believe in yourself" sentiment. 
For the base of the card I die cut 3 circled from the 
Stitched Scalloped Circle Dies by Kat Scrappiness.
The top of the main circle was ink blended with some pretty 
green and blue Distress Inks and then splattered with some
gold paint from the Kuretake Starry Colors Palette
For the bottom of the front panel I transformed some plain kraft card stock
into faux sand using a technique I demonstrated in this video:
The cute little whale and small palm tree island are from the 
Beach Day stamp set that was showcased yesterday.
I even borrowed the little sailor's cap from the little boy 
in that same set for the whale's head.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sassy Sentiments stamp set
on to a Wavy Frame Die by Lawn Fawn and popped it up on foam tape
to act as a stopper to make my easel card stand up.

I really enjoyed playing with these stamp sets and I know you will too!
