Our Mermazing Mermaid looks so beautiful in Caly’s fabulous Platform Pop-Up ocean scene! She surrounded her with all the cute images from Mermaid for You.

I just love how Caly used Sunray Background Stencil on the Platform Pop-Up Add-On! The sunrays streaming into the water look so pretty! Caly used partial die-cutting to extend the height of the add-on. She also used acetate strips, so the cute critters appear to be floating in the ocean scene!

Thanks so much for creating this beautiful inspiration, Caly! It’s so amazing!

Design Team Inspiration

Megan‘s tropical details give her Flamingo Floatie card fabulous style! She made it even more fun by adding a Slide on Over Waves interactive element.

Elena created a lovely setting for her Mermazing Mermaid starting with the Sunray Background Stencil! It adds so much depth and light to her underwater scene. Then she included seaweed, coral and bubbles from Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On. The rocks are from Lift the Flap Meadow and the sentiment is found in Mermaid for You.

Tammy‘s Platform Pop-Up is so adorable! The Sunray Background Stencil is so perfect with the cute Smooth Sailing boats and critters. I just love this sunny ocean scene!

I just love Elise‘s colorful card! It’s so amazing with the beautiful sunray background and inky Stitched Wave Backdrop trimmed to size! The happy Scripty Hello greeting also uses a sentiment from Pool Party.

The cute Mermazing Mermaid is right at home adorning Melissa‘s waterpark-themed layout! She also used All the Dots paper and Pretty Poppies to decorate the page.

Lynnette‘s sunny birthday card is so much fun! The hot pink flamingo takes center stage with the cute Pool Party critters! She used Offset Sayings: Birthday in addition to the sentiment from Pool Party to send a totally fun birthday design!

Marine‘s beautiful card has a cartoon quality that is amazing! She layered Stitched Dens to create the look of an ocean grotto for the Mermazing Mermaid! Then she added colorful fish from Build-An-Aquarium! You will also find the die cut hello that Marine used for the greeting in the Shutter Card set.

Audrey created a beautiful scene for the Flamingo Floatie! For the sky she stenciled sunrays then she stamped some seagulls from Smooth Sailing before adding the Puffy Cloud Frames. The floatie bobs on Stitched Wave Borders while the addition of a googly eye adds so much whimsy!

Kara‘s Mermazing Mermaid is so beautiful in shades of green and blue! Her lovely design combines Stitched Ripple Backdrop and Bayou Backdrop!

Latisha‘s simple design is so much fun with its summery color scheme!

Mindy‘s Mermazing Mermaid card is so full of sunshine! In addition to Sunray Background Stencil, she used images from Ahoy Matey and Mermaid for You!

Flamingo Floatie looks so cute lending design style to Melissa’s scrapbook layout! All the Dots papers also add to the cuteness of the water-themed page!

Grace combined Mermazing Mermaid with cute fish from Build-An-Aquarium to create a Platform Pop-Up card that is so amazing!

I love how the All the Dots paper looks like bubbles in the water! The teal and purple color palette adds so much to Grace’s lovely design!

Yainea created a sunny design with a greeting from Magic Messages! The Sunray Background Stencil creates a sunny backdrop that looks so perfect with the classic pink Flamingo Floatie!

Caly used Sunray Background Stencil to show light rays shining through the ocean depths! Her Mermazing Mermaid scene includes details from Mermaid for You! So adorable!

Kara used the mice from Simply Celebrate Critters in way that is so adorable! They are riding on the Flamingo Floatie while another mouse from Scootin’ By hangs on outside. There’s also a little cutie from Super Star riding on top! This charming design includes the Stitched Wavy Backdrop with beautiful inking!

Here’s another look at Mindy‘s brilliant Flamingo Floatie card! Click HERE to see her video tutorial for this card. The Sunray Background Stencil looks so perfect adding subtle design in the background!

I love how the Sunray Background Stencil adds so much sunshine to a summer card! And that little sloth with the sunglasses makes me smile!

Who had “Jenn creates with Mermazing Mermaid” on your summer 2022 bingo card? If there were such a thing you could cross that one off! Of course, our favorite mermaid used this new die set to make an absolutely mermazing card!

Jenn created this amazing watery background using Distress Spray Stains. Then she added a greeting using Scripty Hello and Wavy Sayings.

She used Copic markers to color the pretty mermaid. (Check out the Copic marker chart below.) And then she added sparkle with lots of glitter!

Thank you for this beautiful inspiration, Jenn!
