Let's Be Mermaids!


The August Anything Goes With Dies Challenge has begun at Happy Little Stampers. As always, anything goes as long as you use dies on your project. The winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the Happy Little Stampers Shop! Check out all the details HERE.


IT's no secret that I am in love with Ellen Hutson's MERMAID'S TAIL set by Julie Ebersole. I can't get enough of it. For this card, I embossed the tail with silver EP (SU), blended with distress inks and die cut. The background is stenciled with DOX inks using the stencil from the May 2017 Hero Arts Monthly Card Kit. I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and embellished with Caribbean Ocean Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies Design Team has created some wonderful die cut inspiration for you. Please head on over to the HLS AGWD Challenge, check out the DT projects and leave the DT some love. Break out some dies, create a project with them, and link up in the gallery for a chance to win!
