Ink & Share April Blog Hop: Occasions

Hi, my name is Karen and I'm an Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator based in the UK. Whether you've hopped in from Cindy or found my blog purely by accident, I welcome you!

Hello Crafters and welcome to another Ink & Share Blog Hop! We are a group of IndependentDemonstrators from all around the world who have got together to create some fun little projects on the same theme. This month we are featuring some of our favourite things from the Occasions Catalogue. This is the seasonal one rather than the main catalogue. 

I can never decide on one particular favourite, I always love it all, but here goes ....

I chose the Magical Day stamps and matching die set, plus a piece of the Designer Series Paper.

My daughter had contacted me to see if I could make up some little things to sell for an event near her. I cant make it but thought if she wanted to put a table up, I'm more than happy to give her some goodies. I was given something similar at Onstage this month as a swap, so wanted to recreate it. 

I had such fun making it too! All I needed were some scraps of card and DSP, the stamp set and my Stampin Blends. I just love how the Soft Sky and Old Olive colours merge on the mermaids tail.

I used the Starburst Punch and the 2" Circle Punch first, then die cut using a Stitched Framelit circle. Mounted the mermaid on Dimensionals, added the key chain and mini bubble wand and hey presto - a cute little gift any little girl would love ... I'm sure my 3 yr old granddaughter will have this off mer mummy as soon as she sees it!

Directions for the mermaid bubble wand and also a daisy lollipop are on my YouTube channel
