Hello, Creatives! Who wants to see mermaid themed stamps? Me! IF you are new to my site welcome! Here is the first look at my new stamps with Technique Junkies! Not am I sharing the new stamps, the whole team has prepared a blog hop for you! (Did I mention a giveaway? But I digress…) We are very excited about this release – do you know how hard it is to keep a secret? Super hard! I have been holding onto this one for a while, but the time is up so let’s take a look…
Mermaid themed stamps
First up, the floral mermaid. There are five stamps in this collection, the floral mermaid spends her days swimming and picking beautiful flowers under the sea! She has big colorful dreams and finds a way to pursue them.
She needs a name… Laurel? Rosemary? Dahlia? I am open to suggestions!
You can’t have mermaids without jellyfish well you could, but just look at these! The jellyfish look so magical, I remember seeing real ones under black lights in an aquarium. They looked so cool – unlike seeing them on the beach in Puerto Rico after having stung someone (ouch and no fun!)

Mermaid themed stamps number 3
There are two mermaids in this collection. (You know I love mermaids!) The princess mermaid
wears her crown well. Something about being a daughter of the king gives you confidence! 😉
~a page from my art journal. Quote says “the moment you are ready to quit is the usually the moment right before a miracle happens. Never give up.” Good advice for us all!
No ocean scene is complete without a little seagrass. (Bubbles included)
Layering the seagrass with foam squares (scrapbook adhesives) really makes it pop.
To complete the collection I had to throw in this snappy clamshell. (OK, bad pun I know, lol.)
I can imagine this little clamshell giving the mermaids a little sass or at least keeping an eye out for them!
And I had to share one more page with jellyfish from my art journal. Don’t you love how they look like they are swimming?
Our team members have prepared their own under the sea ventures and would love for you to stop by and see them!
Here is the order (in case you get lost on the way!)
