Bathing Beauties

For some reason I've made several cards with the same stamp set recently.  It could be that it is because it is on my desk and I'm too lazy to get up and get something else or it could be that I'm obsessed with it.

This card has a ruffled crepe paper banner on it.  Now you know what to do with those left over party streamers.
This one is a CASE job with different colors. I liked the seaside feel to Marisa's card and wanted to capture that for future inspiration.
These two came to be due to the striped paper, which felt like a beach towel to me.  I'm going to do this card in a workshop soon so I made two versions of it.  One has the bathing suit paper pieced and the other is colored. I know not everyone likes to fussy cut, so I'm giving options.
And the paper pieced version:
The Fine Print: All products by A Muse Studio.  Stamps used--Bathing Beauties and Sea Shells. Cardstock used-Sugar, Bermuda, Blueberry, Grass, Shell, and Kraft. Other supplies used--Bermuda crepe paper, silver and lime sequins, toffee twine, circle die, and Fiesta and Everything's Rosy 6x6 patterned paper.

Love them all hun, splashtastic - I'd like to think that you were making the most of your playthings (it would be laziness in my case), and I love that these are similar but different. Just keep swimming... Hugs xx

Eeep! I can see why you love her, PJ! She is so incredibly versatile! My fave is the first one with the fun crepe paper border. You obviously had your expensive designer hat on for THAT one! The one with the extra electrodes that went bam right to the light bulb idea center!! Hugs, Darnell

We tend to have phases with certain products, it's good to see how many different creations can come from one stamp and we really love all your cards.

I love what you're creating with this stamp set, so keep 'em coming! Way to use up that crepe paper stash!

Really adorable, and I liked each version. Thanks for the idea of the ruffled crepe paper. What a terrific embellishment. Also liked the way you added the 'seaweed' on the bold stripey one - which reminded me of bright beach towels. Your trims on each card (the backgrounds I mean) are so imaginative and perfect for the bathing beauty. Great job on all of the set, and good for you on (1)being obsessed with the stamp OR (2)being lazy. I like lazy. I'm becoming an expert. WTGo on the cards, though. TFS & Happy wkend.

Hi Judy,
What a fabulous array of wonderful cards.
I love that stamp and your designs.
I am just getting back to blogging a little after my slipped disc in the top of my spine gave me a lot of pain when using the computer.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi PJ!
Heard all the whistling and to stop to see what it was about. Yep, those bathing beauties were the cause for all the commotion all right.

SUPER job on all of them, and I really can't choose a favorite. It is an adorable image.

Just a heads up (and I'm cheatin' just a tad with the heads up too!), but you might want to check Carol's Blog (our little inspirations!). Hugs

These are so fun! I have some crepe paper kicking around that I haven't played with in a while. That one makes me think of the ruffled skirt we big girls like to have at the bottom of our suits :)
