Seize The Birthday - Summer Time


The new challenge at Seize The Birthday is Summer Time.  I used a little beach scene stamp and added a wash of Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean (very appropriate!) and I can't remember what for the sand (I did it a few weeks ago) - probably Antique Linen.  I scored a weatherboard panel and swooshed Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass over it, then stamped the word panel over it.  The happy birthday sentiment is from Penny Black.  The beach scene and the subway art stamp are unbranded stamps that I picked up after the Port Sunlight show.

So what will you create?  A birthday card without the toppings, or a summer time birthday card?    Either way, come and join us!


I'm entering my card into the City Crafter Nautical challenge.

  2. I gotta know...do you dream these ideas while you sleep or do they just 'pop' into your mind on a whim? I think I need to start eating/drinking whatever it is that you consume and perhaps my mojo will come back home!

    My new #1 favorite 'Shirley Card'. Awesome stamp and fabulous weathered barn boards!

    The stitching rocks!
