Seize the Birthday - Beachy Birthday

Hello and welcome to my blog! 

Today is Seize the Birthday Thursday and I have a summery card to share with you! 

The new Toppings Option for next fortnight is 

I bought this cute stamp by Penny Black last year but the Summer was already over , so I put it aside to use later. Now it's just right time for this cute little girl on the beach to get some color! 

I stamped the Beach Baby in Caviar Hybrid ink (a Copic friendly ink by The Ton) on some white cardstock and colored her using Copic markers. I added texture on the sand and ocean with Copics and then blended brown DI onto the beach and blue DIs on the ocean while masking the other part. I blended the sky on DIY cloud stencil and splattered clear water to create the texture. I adhered the colored panel flat on a light blue cardbase.

The sentiment by Paper Smooches was stamped in True Navy on a speech bubble I cut with a craft knife. I added silver faux stitch line around the speech bubble and foam mounted it onto the card.  I added three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins to finish off the card. 

That's it from me. So glad I finally used this cute stamp!

Please don't forget to stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our Surprise Party Guest Sonja!

Have a wonderful one!

What a sweet image on this PB stamp TaeEun and love the summery colours you have used and the blue and brown shades are complemented beautifully by that pop of red for her bathing suit and the ribbon round her hat. I'm just wishing I could be on that beach right x

TaeEun, I love this little beach baby more every time I see her! You've brought her to life... Sure looks like she could be sitting on our Lake Michigan shore! xx

Oh, I had my eye on this stamp too, but unlike you, I did not buy it. I am so sorry that I can't grab it now and make a card like yours. I adore that you left her to be center stage of this creation. The subtle clouds and beach really add to the entire card.
