Message in a Bottle...


I recently managed to get my hands on a second-hand Stampin' Up set 'Message in a Bottle'.

I've been doing this more and more, to try and keep my craft expenditure down and it's also nice to 'shop someone else's stash' LOL.

This is my first card using the set and I love it!

I thought it was a perfect fit for the current Shopping Our Stash challenge - Mythical & Magical.

I stamped the bottle first, then added the mermaid and masked off the edges of the bottle, so I could add a little bit of water 'in' the bottle.

The sentiments are also from the set.

I die-cut it using Lil Inkers wonky stitched dies and did the same with the already embossed and coloured anchor panel (which has been staring at me for weeks). No idea where the anchor embossing folder is from, probably Darice or Sizzix, I have a lot of embossing folders by them.

Simple card for one of the many mermaids in my life.



  1. Cute card! Cute stamp set! I love those background dies, too. They are very unique-shaped. Thank you for sharing this with us at SOS this week.

  2. Hi there Claire, so happy you can join us at SHOPPING OUR STASH with this adorable card, love the dies you used to frame this adorable little Mermaid.
    Thank you for sharing and I hope you come back to play again next time.
