August Club La-la Land Mermaid Marci Square Card

OMG - so if you have been living in a cave, you may not be aware of the La-la Land Crafts monthly project kit that started in the month of August 2014 - check out the club details here.  This is the first kit La-la Land offered.  My blog will have a posting of each of the projects for the next 5 days.   There is an option  to purchase only stamps and dies each month.  I chose the full kit which comes with the stamps, dies, paper, embellishments and detail instructions for each project. And, of course, there is the option to be creative outside the box, too. These stamps and dies are not available for purchase for one year so being in the club makes it ever so exclusive and special.  The theme for this month was Mermaid Marci. I did chose to go outside the box but too outside. I LOVED Design Team Leader, Sue's card.  So my card is CASED from blog site here. Copic colors used: see Sue's blog for details. This is a 6x6 card.
I absolutely love all the papers selected for this month's projects.  They are absolutely gorgeous - unfortunately, the paper company was not revealed to us. I did add a couple of my own papers.  The solid Coral: Stampin-Up Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Recollections Shades of Red.  Fish are popped with foam squares.
Seaweed: paper from Recollections Cool Water paper Pack. Yup, the strip of seaweed (which also can be used for icicles), coral, star fishes, sea horse are all dies that came with this kit.  They are cut and popped with foam squares.
Here's Mermaid Marci which is the theme of the month. In addition, the rocks and additional fish with a sentiment are included as part of the stamp set this month.
 In this photo, the exquisite shiny paper is clearly shown:
Mermaid Marci is popped with foam squares. I love her coral hair band with small adhesive pearls in the flower centers. And, don't you just love her two-toned hair color.............very mystic.
Card inside: I went crazy die cutting those seahorses,m coral and seaweed how it turned out.
 A closer look at the inside:
 A small adhesive pearl for the sea horse eyes is a nice touch:
 I do hope you enjoyed this card and a few more to come in the next days..............thank you for stopping by today.
