May 2024 Release with Sweet Sentiment

Welcome to the May 2024 release with Sweet Sentiment. (Affiliate links used throughout this post at no cost to you; I appreciate your support.)  This month we have a gorgeous mermaid for Mer-May, pirates, and an awesome sentiment set for Father's Day. I hope you enjoy my collection of projects this month.

Supplies used:

Sea Ya




Plans Stamp Set

Bubble Stencil

ColorDex Scalloped Die

Sweet Sentiment Planner

I colored all images with Karin Marker Brushmarker PRO and Polychromos Colored Pencils, using a Gelly Roll Pen - White to add minor highlights on Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper - Card Stock.

I have a blast with the Bubble Stencil this month -- using both on my planner page and stenciled over this holo patterned paper.

I used a shaker bubble on the front of my ColorDex, inking the Bubble Stencil behind the opening.  I love the contrast of the watery blues with the kraft.

The square card above is a bit smaller than most traditional square cards; sometimes I find the standard 5" or 6" sizes too large to fill.  This smaller scale was perfect for our pirate captain.

Not only is our lady pirate cute, but she's pretty fierce with that sword!  The sunken ship and torn map die (background) are from a prior La-La Land Crafts Kit of the Month.

I couldn't resist stamping one of the mustaches from the Dads set onto any of the other character stamps from Sweet Sentiment I just happened to have the jellyfish nearby when the thought jumped into my head.  Naturally, any card about maturity cried out for googly eyes.  And now Jelly Dad reminds me of Cookie Monster (sorry you can't unsee that now.. LOL) and now completely reminds me of my own cookie monster dad.  :)  (I love you, Pops!)  ALSO, I used the Bubble Stencil two ways -- dry embossed on the light blue water layer and then stenciled onto the card front.  The little fish, seaweed, and water layers are from La-La Land Crafts.

Not to be outdone, this mustache dude makes me giggle and was perfect for a Father's Day card.  I used the stencil from my Sweet Sentiment Planner to lightly ink a pair of overlapping sections on the card front, inked a smattering of "gun shot" spots, and stamped the sentiments.
