Gina K stamps are here!

I have been stuck in a rut since the first of the week. I was thinking that these stamps should be here. I have dreamed up some different cards to make with these and they just weren't here yet. Finally, they came. I was so excited when I saw that little package in the mailman's hands! I rushed out to the mailbox before he even put it in there! It didn't hurt that I was already outside with Bandit.

So in I came and I just had to make a few cards so my stamps didn't feel neglected! lol I was planning to use real red for these cards but when I got in there to stamp I realized I need to order some more of that color, so I used ruby red. I'm getting better at this picture taking thing huh? I even put the supplies in the picture to make it look more professional. As you can see, I even used my A Muse oval stamp to shadow the crab in the pail. I did have some trouble though because when I masked it I guess my paper was too thick because it left a white line around the bottom of the bucket. So I went back with the reinker an my blender pen and got rid of it. I also colored in a little bit to make a shadow. I'm not sure if you can see it in this pic or not.
On the second card I used Shore Thing, which was in last year's summer mini (I think). I love to use the sun, waves, and sand to add to my beachy cards. I used the last little bit of this blue ribbon that I bought in the $1 bin at Michael's last year. I was kind of sad to see it go. I also stamped "Happy Summer" on the bottom right corner. I just love these little guys! Look for more cards with these stamps soon! Hopefully I'm out of my rut for now.

I have not seen these stamps cute! Love the Lobster in the pail! The color choices are great. Glad you're out of your rut. Get busy, 'cause you know school will be starting before you know it!!
