A mermazing day 2 at Sweet November!


Hello again!

Here we go, diving back into the magical waters of Sweet November to visit with more of the super cute new mermaids that make up the 2024 MerMay clear release. There are 12 mermazing sets to choose from, plus the newest addition to our ongoing Flower of the Month Fairy series, as well as two gorgeous new sequin mixes. The shopping special for this release is spend $130 or more and you will get the 4x8 Merwee Party set absolutely FREE (while supplies last). And of course there is also FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders over $75 and $15 flat rate shipping for all international orders over $75. We've also brought back the exclusive limited time digital bundle deal so for this weekend only, May 11th thru May13th, a digital stamp bundle that includes the entire 2024 MerMay release will be available for $95. This is a very limited time offer and once the weekend is over the only time you might see it again is during a black Friday or another special event.

I've got three more cards to share with you today, proving that mermaids are fintastic morning, noon or night. First up is one of the new 3x4 chibi mermaids called, Crabby but Cute. I paired her with the Seaside Cliffs Background Builder set so that she would be sitting on the beach, watching the sun rise on the horizon. In the sky I stamped some of the small seagull silhouettes from that background set and I like to think that this sweet mermaid is protecting her crab friend from becoming some gull's breakfast, LOL!

Next, we have Skipper, who you may already have as a digital stamp. We had so many requests to release her as a clear that we decided to make Skipper the limited edition stamp for this release. What that means is, once the initial run of stamps sells out, we will not be placing any re-orders and Skipper will only be found in the store as a digi yet again. This time around I paired her with the Dock on the Bay Background Builder set and a sentiment from the Seashells and Sunshine set.

Finally for today, I've stamped up this beauty from the Any Fin is Possible set. Rather than have her long hair flowing in a warm ocean current, I wanted her above the waves so that it could be blowing in the breeze. This was easily done by simply not applying ink to the bottom of the stamp, which included the sand at the base of the rock and the bend of her tail. I added the second rock, which is from the Dock on the Bay Background Builder set and once I colored in the night scene around her I stamped the willow branches from the Day at the Park Background Builder set to frame in the entire scene.

The Instagram hop is still going strong with all kinds of magical mermaid inspiration and a chance to win the entire release, just search for the #sweetnovemberstamps account to get started. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, the 14th. And the Youtube hop starts this morning for another chance at winning the entire release!
