Be a Mermaid - Simon Says Stamp

 Good morning! I'm stopping by this morning with a fun card using a super cute stamp set from Simon Says Stamp paired up with some bright distress ink blending and heat embossing for a fun and happy card!

I mostly used the fun Be a Mermaid stamp set and dies for this card - all heat embossed, and each one with a different color of embossing ink! The tails were embossed with gold embossing powder, and blended with Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet distress inks.

The waves I heat embossed 3 times with clear embossing powder, and then ink blended one with Salty Ocean, one with Blueprint Sketch, and one with Peacock Feathers.

I layered the waves at the bottom on thin strips of foam adhesive, slightly overlapping each one. The center one I rotated around 180 degrees to provide some variation in the wave appearance. I then tucked the mermaid tails into different layers of the waves, adhered them down with liquid glue, and added foam adhesive to the top of the tails.

I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the stamp set that also has coordinating dies, and then added a secondary sentiment from Just Because Word Mix 2, cut out with the coordinating dies. Finally, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Jewels to add the effect of bubbles - the perfect finishing touch!
