Red Lobster

OK so this may not be a lobster but I'm sure they serve it at their restaurant.  This is one of the finest stamps I have ever used.  The crisp detail stamped beautifully and I got soooooo excited to see it.   The new foam ink pad made this Cherry Cobbler urchin come to life.

This is the last of my May Stamp Camp cards.   I'm working very hard and getting farther behind.

Parker’s Pattern

The Parker’s Pattern Designer Series Paper immediately caught my eye when the Spring Catalog was first published.  It took me a while to get to it as there were so many occasions that needed to be addressed first.  My April Stamp Camp featured two cards using this Designer Series Paper and I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.  Neither could my customers.

You could use a variety of the sentiments from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set to adapt the occassion.
