Sea Critters #1

This month's Stamp of the month is called Sea Critters and is a great set for summer time cards and scrapbook pages! It is $9.75 with a $30 order until June 23, this is the last day I will be able to send in orders with this catalogue. For the top one I made a background using the shells from the set and Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, and Burnt Sienna inks on cream cardstock. Then on craft cardstock I stamped the seahorse and colored it with my watercolor pencils and Dove blender. I added some brown card stock and tan Stamper's Floss. The bottom card is a monochromatic card using our Blue tones Monochromatic cardstocks and light blue stampers floss. It is a quick and easy layered card. You could have any message put on either of them. I used the set Ordinary Greetings for both of them.

This past weekend I had my annual sale for my used stamps and some new sets at my home and then at Rubber Stamping Studio. It was great seeing many of you again that I have not seen in a while and catching up. I had a wonderful time at both events. Yesterday I spent some time getting my patio cleaned and put together so I can sit out and visit with nature more. It has been so cold here I haven't had time until now. If the weather is good on Weds, I will be at the Farm parks selling my cards and paper arts. Hope you will be able to stop in and see me! Have a wonderful week. Blessings
