Your Next Stamp Mermaid + sneak peek of new release

Hello and happy mid week. Sorry for not posting for a few days. For the past few days, I spent so much time with my visitors and also made some cards. Today, I am just going to do a short post and show you one of the cards I made. I will save some to post for the next few days, because some of these cards I made containing some NEW release for Your Next Stamp. You are going to love these stamps. I am going to show you a little piece from a card I made using some of these new release stamps right here:

Ok, can you tell what that is? You will soon find out, because the stamps are being released on September 23, 2009. On that date, please come and join us for the our very first blog hop! All commentors will have a chance to win a prize of one stamp set from one of the blogs which will be a secret one, so make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs during your hop along. Also, there will be a GRAND PRIZE of $50.00 worth of stamps from the Your Next Stamp store (YNS Store). Check out the info from our challenge blog HERE.

Ok, my card to show today is a combination of two mermaid stamp sets (I love all the YNS mermaid stamps) One is called "Happy Birthday Mermaid" and the other is called "Just Swimming By Mermaid".

Here is a closer view on the coloring using my Copic markers. I cut open some spots from the wave image of the 'Just Swimming By Mermaid' set and tucked the mermaid and the fish in.

Here is the closer view to show the dimension.

I also added a shell button to match the water theme.

I will be going to California for a short vacation next week. But I will make sure to schedule some posts. That was why I haven't been posted for a few days, because I wanted to prepare some cards to post during my trip :o)

See you again soon and thank you for stopping by!
