Happy Birthday Seaside Card

Happy June 1st!! 

I am thrilled that Summer is almost here! I love this time of year! I love going to the beach, camping, traveling, and BBQing! I hope you enjoy your Summer! 

I would like to share a fun birthday card I just finished today! This is one of the three cards that my customers will make in August. I have been so excited to finally be able to play with Seaside! I
love, love, love this paper! Did mention I
love this paper? Lol  

The coloring is all sponged. I used Sorbet, Glacier, and Desert Sand and used a round sponge and sponge daubers to get this color effect.

Here's the supplies I used:
X7192B Seaside paper
D1609 Seaside Greetings
Z1985 Gold Shimmer trim
Z2012 Gold sequins
Z2641 Glacier ink
Z2164 Sorbet ink
Z2118 Desert Sand ink
Z697 Sponge
Z726 Sponge Daubers 
Z1294 Sanding Kit

This card is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I stamped the lighthouse in Desert Sand. I used Sorbet and a sponge dauber and sponged lightly across the top of the lighthouse. I took another sponge dauber and sponged above the sorbet using Glacier ink. I also stamped some clouds at the top in Glacier ink. Take your round sponge and cut it into four pieces. Take a wedge and sponge Desert Sand over the sand and fence. I like to use a circular motion to get the effect I want.

This stamp set is perfect to use our CTMH sponges! Have fun trying them out! Be sure you visit again soon! My other two cards designs and layouts will be coming soon! 

Happy Creating! 



  1. I love the touch of Sorbet. Had not thought of that. I will soon be designing some cards with this set, so I will have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration once again!

    1. Thank you, Lynn! This was such a fun card to create! The sponging was simple but a fun way to color this stamp set! I'm hoping my customers will have fun with this technique!
