Primrose Petals Lobster

Good morning everyone!

It's been really sunny here in Surrey over the last few days, Spring is on its way! I have soooo much planned for the next few months ahead; I'm starting to wonder how I am going to fit it all in considering I'm already running to a very tight schedule!

I'm hoping the lighter evenings and mornings (they're also on their way - smiley face!) means I come out of hibernation mode and I manage to get even more done!

I spend a fair bit of time pouring over the new catalogue, daydreaming and planning all the wonderful things I'm going to create! The new Spring/Summer catalogue from Stampin' Up! has loads of cutesy, vintage, and colourful ideas for those Spring and Summer cards and projects.

I've also been dreaming about getting out in our VW Camper conversion down to the sea ~ catching crabs and finding some Samphire for our dinner. Foraging is on my list of things to do more of this year. With all this in mind  it became a good bit of inspiration for today's card.

I've mentioned before how I especially like the new "By the Tide" (£24.95); this gorgeous stamp set comprises of 7 beautiful sea-scape stamps for your nautical projects.

I used my Primrose Petals ink to stamp a lobster three times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock; this was the absolutely perfect colour for stamping Mr Lobster!!

This picture shows just how juicy Stampin' Up! ink pads are; and how stamping this way is a technique within itself:

I then added a sentiment for a really simple but effective card - perfect for someone who loves the sea!

For those of you who are wondering what shade of blue I used to contrast it's Midnight Muse, I'm using this colour a lot since I invested in it.
