    1. I did not know of this TH stamp until I saw it at the Simon Says Stamp store. it came out in 2013. When I saw it and I really like stamps w/ dies like the TH to cut the pieces and my fondness for Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow I knew that I wanted it. I used the picture on the back of the packaging to imitate the distressing look.
