The SN MerMay Mermazing release is here!



Hey there friends!

We are so very excited here at Sweet November Stamps because today the brand new mermaid clear stamps are finally available! It's our biggest clear release yet with nine new stamp sets being introduced in this mermazing MerMay release. With styles that range from lovely and alluring to cute and adorable there's bound to be a mermaid who will sing her siren song to you, LOL! As always, there is a special going on in the store...  spend $100 or more and you will get the 4x6 Merwees #2 set absolutely FREE (while supplies last). We have also introduced FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders over $75 and $15 flat rate shipping for all international orders over $75, so there are even more ways to save now!

My first card showcases one of the two beautiful Mermees that come in the Mermees #3 set along with the cute octopus and one of the sentiments from the same set. I paired them with the little school of fish from the Mermaid Hair set and the Horizon Lines: Under the Sea set that released last year. 

Next we have a cute mini slimline card featuring one of the two adorable mermaids from the Mermaid Hair set. The sentiment, bubbles and school of fish are all part of the set as well while the seaweed behind her come from the Sunshine and Seashells set. I just love how that seaweed ties back to the strands of seaweed caught up in all that hair. :)

You might have seen my Live video where I colored up this next card featuring the fun pirate mermaid, Bonnie. This sassy little mer is floating inside a sunken pirate ship thanks to the new Background Builder: Simple Room set and the Simple Room: Pirate Add-on set. The barnacles growing on the wall are from the new Dock on the Bay set and are a nice finishing touch.   

Our next cutie is one of three little mermaids from the Sunshine and Seashells set and all of them are sporting seashell hats to look extra fashionable. It looks like she and her puffer fish friend have just built a sandcastle outside the coral reef thanks to all the little accessory stamps that are part of the same set.   

We can't have a mermaid release without some new Merwees and there are five little sweeties included in the Merwees #2 set. The fun doesn't stop there, as this happy walrus pup is one of four accessory stamps also included in the set, as is the sentiment. The coral is from the Mermees #3 set and the whelk is from the Mermaid Hair set

Finally for today, I've also made a card featuring another new background builder set called, Dock on the Bay. This set has all the parts and pieces you need to create a side view of a dock extending out into the water. Not only that but it also comes with some great accessories to build up your surface scenes like, two mermaid rocks, a pair of seagulls and two deserted islands. I added little Wee Lynn, from the release last summer, to the water beneath the dock and the sentiment is from the Seashells and Sunshine set
