Welcome to the RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour! We have a lots of inspiration for you! I hope you sit back, relax and enjoying traveling through the blog tour!
The featured stamp set is By the Tide from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog.
My first card was inspired by this week’s Create with Connie and Mary’s Sketch Challenge - CCMC251 Take a close look and you’ll see some SNEAK PEAKS from the NEW 2013-2014 Annual Catalog and I am so excited that Pool Party and Island Indigo are sticking around as part of the Color Refresh.
Does this card make you want to go to the beach? It makes me want to! I used a couple varieties of sponging to create the background and the sand.

My second card for today features my favorite stamp from the By the Tide, the cute lobster!
I decided to stick with just two main colors on this card – Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. It really makes the lobster pop and be the focal point of the card. What do you think?
