Uniique Photo Creations by the CCEE



Maryann, our CCEE Stampers hostess for November, asked us to use photos in some way on our cards.  I immediately went to photos I have of my two of my three favorite places to vacation......Maine and Aruba.

The first a birthday card I created by printiing a picture of Nubble Light in York, Maine on cardstock using the sepia tones.  I kept it simple and neutral in tones as this is a masculine birthday card for a friend.

On the second, I used pictures of a divi tree and one of a palm covered table on the beach.  The glasses shown are a rubber stamp which I heat embossed and then cut out.  I then sized the pictures to fit in the glass lenses.  It didn't come out quite as cute as I thought it would.....it seems to need a 'nose' to fill in the empty area between the glasses and the sentiment.  Maybe I should have put a mustache......thinking of a previous challenge this month.....lol!!!

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog.  I myself can't wait to see what the other team members created with their photos.
