We didn't sign up for stamping camp this summer and instead have rented a beach cottage where we are enjoying a stamping vacation. Today we decided to use a similar image to make a card and see what happened! I haven't seen Sally's version yet, but I know it will be a perfect masterpiece, full of amazing details and embellishments.
We chose to use Miss Innocence images and here is my card:
As you can see, the puppy (a Deasey Design digi) is in serious danger of being bopped on the head by that huge cupcake!
Ms. Innocence is paper pieced with the cross stitching added by hand on her dress. Colored with Copics.
Edited to add: Sally just e-mailed me the darling card she made using a Miss Innocence image called "Beach Bum":
Now isn't this the sweetest card ever? I love the Polaroid shot of Little Miss Beach Bum in her tie-dyed bathing suit. Notice how the flag embelli's mimic the little flag on the sand castle. And the tie-dyed turtles? To "die" for! (The turtles were made with a die from Memory Box). I am hopeful after spending three weeks watching Sally stamp, I will absorb some of this talent!
Had lots of fun at the beach cottage today and can't wait to see what else we can challenge each other to do during our three week vacation! We are enjoying the provided breakfast, the daily maid service and the charming little town where we browse the stamping stores and end up with home made ice cream before going back to the cottage.
If you haven't guessed by now, I confess that the beach cottage thing is a fantasy; only the cards and the friendship are real!! Thanks for stopping by!!
