Shaker Shake-up with Heat Resistant Acetate

 Todays project is a bit of a spin on a Shaker card.  Instead of a die cut window with stamping on the surrounding panel, the stamped image is on the window, making the shaker window the true focal point.  I created this using Heat Resistant Acetate.  Because it's heat resistant, you can stamp and emboss on it without it shrinking, warping or twisting.  A powder tool is key when using the acetate with embossing powder because of how prone to static acetate is.  I rub my powder tool over the entire area I'm going to stamp and heat emboss to ensure that my image comes out clearly.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies

Mermaids Mean Summer

 I LOVE these mermaids.  And I want to go swimming with them.  I had this watercolor background sitting on my studio table and that was the inspiration for the card.  It has a fantasy ocean feel that made the mermaids a perfect fit.  I don't have footage of the background in the video, but it was very simple.  Using a wet on wet technique, I added lines of blues, purple and some teal, then laid in a bit a gold and let dry.  My mermaids are colored with Copics and finished off with a sparkle pen.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.
