Wishing You Were Here...

The first of the month means release day for Gourmet Rubber Stamps!  Of course, this lovely little sand castle from the new Diners' set, Pack Your Bags, is what caught my eye first, so I used the paper tole technique to build several layers of dimension, adding it to a background of embossed waves and a torn paper shore line.  There's even some glistening sparkly "sea foam" aka Smooch is really sparkly in person!

You'll also find the stamps I used in a custom set, Friends by the Sea, available at i {heart} papers.  Kate has grouped Diners' club images into smaller themed sets which makes them affordable and convenient!

Visit the GRS blog and my design team mates to see what they are doing with the images from Pack Your Bags!
