CCEE1447 Photos & Photography

This is my 3rd week of being hostess on CCEE Stampers for my challenge I have asked everyone to create a card using photos & photography.
For this challenge I want to use stamps that I have had for some time. This set is from Oxford Impressions, Bathing Beauties.

For the base card I have used The Stamps of Life step ups die. I created by background paper by clear embossing seashells on white card and sponging with Adirondack inks. The photo stamps are stamped with dye ink and matted and attached to the card with foam dots.

Here is what the card looks like laying flat for decorating.

I just may become a bathing beauty this year, it is still a few weeks until we hit summer in Australia, it has been very dry and hot and already we have had several days where we have had temperatures in the mid forties (43ºC = 109.40ºF) This is the highest November temperatures we have had since 1944.

Trying to keep cool.


  1. Long time since I have seen those Bathing Beauties. Love how you used the step-ups die for your card

  2. What a nostalgic beauty you've created, Maryann! Love your swimmin' babes on this awesome step card!

  3. The step format is a great way of showing off those images - and oh my, the seashell paper you created for the front is GORGEOUS, I totally love it.
    I hope you do manage to stay cool!

  4. Your step card looks great with those "photos." And while you become a bathing beauty in your 43 degree Celius (109 degrees Farenheit) temps, folks in the US are digging themselves out of lots and lots of snow! We in Florida are somewhere in between -- although right now we're closer to 43 degrees Farenheit!

  5. I wish I was there too, Maryann! Love the Vintage photos, especially in RED!

  6. Such fabulous vintage images on this sensational side-step design, Maryann! I have enjoyed seeing all the wonderful takes on this great challenge!!

  7. I love these old photo images. This card is so delightful!

  8. what fabulous vintage photo your color choice of ink
