Beachy SSINKIC35 and RRCB43


Hi peeps!  Popping in today before I have some stamping friends come over!  I was intrigued by the Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration challenge 35...isn't this a pretty inspiration?:


I thought that beautiful woodgrain background matched the paper from Serene Scenery, so I pulled out some beach-themed stamps and dies and went to work:


I stamped all the images on SU's watercolor paper for a rustic look, plus it made it easier to color in the larger starfish.  The stamped shells and sentiment are from a (really) old Lizzie Anne set called Shore Thoughts; I added some tiny shell diecuts from Impression Obsession and some random flowers from a Paper Pumpkin set from a couple months ago.  The flip flops I got from a friend...no name, sorry!  I added some gold speckles, and some of the shells are diecut from gold paper as well.  I also added a little linen thread.:


The final touch was some Wink of Stella, which you can't see...but it is so pretty IRL!  I really love the collage feel of this card, but I would never have been able to put it together without the inspiration photo!  I am also entering this in the RetroRubber "Sumertime" challenge, since these stamps are from around seven or eight years ago...seems like I've had them forever!

RRCB 43

Thanks for popping by!

A little mani/pedi time for one of Cassidy's dolls:




Then she thought it would look good as lipstick too, LOL!


Enjoy your day!

  6. This is fantastic, LeAnne! In my state of confusion, I thought perhaps you were taking that word in a different direction - shame on me - but you've inspired me! I could use Cassidy today! xx
