I don't have many of the new photopolymer stamp sets, but when these came out, I wanted them. We don't have a lot in the catalog that is great for teenagers, and I figured I could do a lot of teen cards with these, for girls anyway.
And as it happened, talking to Emily, she was telling me how her best friend (also named Emily) would be going away for a month this summer for a pre-college course, and the two of them are like two halves of the same person, so she is going to miss her dreadfully. And since there is a stamp that looks a bit like both of them, well, this was the result:
Ingredients: Stamps - Sweetie Pie, Sweetie Pie Frames, Stylin' Girl, Gorgeous Grunge, Really Good Greetings; Paper - Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White; Ink - Stazon Jet Black, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party; Markers - Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Basic Black, Blush Blossom (retired), Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Island Indigo; Other - Dimensionals, Mini Silver Brad, Sakura Glaze pen.
STINKIN' CUTE!!! (YILM!) I drew the glasses in so as to look like MY Emily. I also added some light glaze to the lenses of the glasses with a Sakura pen:
I offered to draw in some tears with the glaze pen, but Emily said "NO!" I also used the stamp set "Stylin' Girl" for the shoulders (you can use the ballerina and the girl with the plain dress with the heads from Sweetie Pie to make both sets even more versatile! So now my Emily has a card to send to the other Emily, and I got to play with stamps!
