Wish on a Starfish - Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit

Good morning! I'm back with another fun mermaid card using the BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for September - Sea Treasure! This is such a fun and magical kit - and if you love mermaids (or have a little girl in your life who loves mermaids!) - you are going to love this kit! The Beautiful Mermaids Stamp Set is darling, there is some gorgeous new Mermaid Embossing Powder, some fun glitter and embossed paper, two of the NEWEST Distress Oxide Ink Pads AND an Embossing Ink Pad from Simon Says Stamp! There's still more - you can check out the entire kit and it's contents HERE.

I thought it would be fun to make a sparkly ocean with the gorgeous new embossing powder included in the kit! I swiped my embossing pad across the bottom of a panel of white cardstock, sprinkled with embossing powder, and heat set. I went over it several times to get a thick enough coat to make me happy. 

{{{NOTE: I learned the hard way - make sure each round of embossing dries before swiping again with your embossing pad, unless you want to stain your ink pad! I didn't wait long enough, so mine has a nice little blue stain on it. It still seems to work fine, just doesn't look as pretty!}}}

I stamped my image from Beautiful Mermaids and colored with Copics, before fussy cutting it out (there are dies available separately though I noticed!), then adhered that with foam adhesive over my background. Look at that GORGEOUS sparkle and shine of the Mermaid Embossing Powder:

Finished off by stamping the sentiment with SSS Orange Peel Ink, added a sprinkle of the Treasure Chest sequins in the kit, and matted that panel on a bit of Audrey cardstock before mounting on a white cardbase.

Here is a look at the complete kit contents! You can find the entire kit HERE:
