Featured Artist ~ Robin Merriman

I had a HUGE surprise in my mail box yesterday! I had been talking with my friend Robin Merriman on the phone and telling her that I would LOVE to come down and attend some of her regular stamp camps some day.

In fact, I told her that when my husband and I decide to go cross country in the camper, she'll be close to first on the list. My hubby and I would like to travel the US in our camper and visit all my awesome friends along the way.

Anyway, being the thoughtful, wonderful person she is, I received a package that brings stamp camp to me!

I received 6 cards in a terrific package! This is the first one.

The background of this card is the new Bella Toile background stamp. She used the new scallop punch to make the cute border and pink piroette grosgrain ribbon. She used the curly label punch. (mine is shipping today). As I was looking at the cards side by side I realized that the new curly Label Punch is the same shape as the BIGZ label die from sizzix. Take a look at this next card.
Robin used the BIGZ die from sizzix to cut out to of those curly frame shapes. She cut the white down at the perforation and sponged some chocolate chip.
I just love getting cards in the mail and studying them! So, She used versamark to ink up the flower stamp from upsy daisy to make the background. Then stamped it again on the vanilla cardstock.
hmmm Robin, what stamp is that you used for the green on the bottom of the second card?? :)
You are one talented lady! I will post some of the other goodies robin sent me today or tomorrow sometime.
Have a great Wednesday!
