SIP111 Beach and Boardwalk

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  It's time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  Can you handle another beach-themed project?!  I hope so!
  Image may contain: ocean
 I haven't done a vintage-style creation in a while, and I remembered I had this cool Artistic Outpost set called Boardwalk.  There are so many fun, vintage Atlantic City, NJ, boardwalk images in it, I had to make my card pretty large - it's 5 1/2" square - to fit in all the ones I wanted to use!  Check it out:

My base is Very Vanilla, and I stamped some of the images directly on a piece of last year's By the Shore DSP; the popped-up images were stamped on Very Vanilla and fussy cut.  Here's a line-up of bathing beauties and a ticket to Atlantic City's Steel Pier:

Another bathing beauty:

The Boardwalk's Steel Pier Pavilion:

and a little beach cabana and some other random stamped images:  

They were all stamped and sponged in various pastel shades, except the center emblem, which was stamped in Peekaboo Peach....that one came out rather bright, but I left it there!  The main panel is mounted on a Pool Party mat on which I stamped the Burlap background stamp.  I added some sequins, candy dots and a bit of ribbon just for fun!  Since it's so large, I will need to create its own special envelope with my Envelope Punch Board!  I hope you'll give summer and the beach a last fling with your beachy creation!  Share it with us at Stamp Ink Paper and check out what the others did as well!

Cassidy's daddy was kind enough to send us this shot of her at the campground in Indiana....I am willing to bet she is riding all over that place on her bike! She and her daddy have birthdays a week apart, so this is an extra-special trip for them!

Cassidy takes her smile wherever she goes. Glad she is having fun. That is a cool vintage card.

What a pretty vintage card LeAnne! The collage of elements is wonderful. Sweet photo of Cassidy! I remember taking our bikes on our family camping vacations. My brother, cousins and I would ride all over the campground!
