Hi guys!   Can you believe it is September already?   I just can't....we have company coming in from Texas tomorrow, then the kids go back to school next week.   So summer is pretty much coming to a screeching halt here!  So sad....

Seashell birthday card | Newton's Nook | Kimpletekreativity.blogspot.com

But enough of that!   Here's a beachy themed birthday card because, hey - why not?   I'm going to try and hang on to summer just a little bit longer!!!

I used the new Tranquil Tides stamps and dies from Newton's Nook Designs for this card along with the sentiment from the In Slow Motion stamp set.   This card was pretty straightforward - I used the rock-n-roll inking technique to get a variety of color on each of my shells.

The sand dollar is die cut using both the sand dollar and small starfish die, cut one inside of the other.   That way, no stamping required!   I popped the sand dollar up on foam adhesive for some dimension.   I used some Glossy Accents squirted here and there as a kind of "water droplet" embellishment.  The embossed frame is from MFT....I love how it elegantly frames the shells!

Hope your week is off to a great start!


I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes


  1. Such a pretty card! The sentiment goes perfect, love it!

  2. This is so gorgeous! I love how you did the star and the sand dollar dies together!


I appreciate your comments so much!
