Party Dresses - Mini Blog Hop!


Hello there!  Today PartyGirl gets a makeover with my new set, PartyDresses, which features three new dresses, plus a stole (front and back view), a bow, a belt (which doubles as a bare midriff on the slinky dress), a hanger, and components to make a clothes rail or a tailor's dummy.  This set complements PartyGirl, but can also be used independently (apart from the two stole stamps).


When Shery suggested some dresses for PartyGirl, I had a little problem to overcome - I never gave her any hands (deliberately, I may add - I was avoiding drawing them!), which meant she could only have full-skirted dresses unless I could think of a way round it.  That's where the stole comes in ;)  I find it easiest to stamp the images in this order: arms, dress, stole, head, legs.

Here's another card using the rear view of the stole.  All the dresses work in front or rear view.  For this card, the best order is arms, stole (then mask the stole), dress, head, legs.


So, now's your chance to comment to win.  Just head on over to the STAMPlorations blog for the rest of the links to the mini hop, and you could be in with a chance of winning this set.  Commenting closes Friday 28 August at 11:55 pm US Pacific Time.

Don't worry - if you're not the lucky winner, the stamp set will be available at 10% off for the next week :)

  3. So here's what's super funny: I originally was going to do a Little Black Dress card, and then I stamped my girl and I stamped the straight dress and then I stared. What?! I was NOT about to draw hands. It didn't occur to me until I saw your card that you'd already made an answer for the question! haha! I had so much fun with this set!!
