I know this sounds redundant but each reveal month, I am just blown away by the talented Jennifer Jackson.   It seems that every month, it just gets better and better!

Since we are featuring a ton of products this week, I will not have a step-by-step tutorial on how I made the cards.  However, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I will posting video tutorials for most of the cards that you see today in the next few weeks.

Here is my Narly Mermaid card.  I also combined this card with the Tranquil Tides stamp set to create my under-water scene.

I just love the sparkling jewels that I added to my scene to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a little close-up:

The second stamp set is called Purr-maid Newton.  Oh my goodness!  I have been hounding Jennifer to create a mermaid cat and my wishes finally came true!  Haha!  This stamp set is a MUST-HAVE!

Once again I combined the stamp set with the Tranquil Tides stamp set, with the Sea Borders die set and the Waves stencil.

I used the Sea Borders die set to create the fun waves.  Here’s another look:

Last but not the least, here is my card using the Manatee-rific stamp set and coordinating dies with the Sunscape stencil.  Just looking at this card makes me happy!

I added more sparkling clear jewels to make them look like bubbles.  I also LOVE that the die cuts the middle piece and the Manatee will hug tine embellishments like heart or seashell included in the stamp set.  SUPER ADORABLE!  Here’s a little close-up:
