31 Days of Halloween - Day 29 with Pearl Princess

HELLO!   Edgar Allen Crow here and for those of you here for 31 Days of Halloween, Alex has prepared a very SPECIAL TREAT and you get to see the BRAND NEW RELEASE from SCACD with a new artisit! 
Those of you here specifically because of the brand new release-YAY!- and you should have arrived fromthe blog of Kim Dellow - http://craftymakes.blogspot.com/

Today I am super pleased to share not one, but TWO creations Alex made with Pearl Princess


After stamping and coloring this gorgeous and detailed mermaid, Alex cut her out and placed her in am underwater garden scene.  Doesn't it look like Pearl Princess is tending to her coral garden?   

Because it is 31 days of Halloween, and Alex IS the one who created this, she worked to incorporate one of the legend of mermaids.  They are told to be much like Sirens that sing their hypnotic songs luring sailors to their death on dangerous rocks.  Pearl has a small collection of bones in her garden of earlier 'loves'.

The next item Alex made with Pearl Princess is a card and gift box in one.  This idea was from Femke.  I changed mine up a bit and it is standard A2 card size except for the thickness.
The inside has a pocket on the left with a generous sized tag for writing a message to the recipient.  The right side is a box that has a bag of bath salts inside.  The box can be opened from the top and has a ribbon tie the goes around it.


On the from of the card is Pearl Princess colored to coordinate with the paper.    She and the mat are both cut out using Nestabilities.
The flower is cut from the patterned paper, Kaisercraft Utopia, and a Prima Flower Center added.  The flowers to the side and underneath are Maya Road mini chipboard and covered with coordinating paper from the same collection.


Can't wait to purchase some of these new stamps you are seeing for yourself? Well go HERE to see the stamps and order! When you order the full sheet you get two free accessory stamps as well! YAY!
