Summertime, Birthday time!

Our oldest son's family joined us at the beach last week for a fun time of wave jumping and exploring.

Our grandson celebrated his 11th birthday while we were there so I wanted to create a card that would remind him of one of the fun things he did at the beach.

That boy has no fear and this is how he spent most of the week...in and out of the waves.  Snorkel and all!.  :)

I heat embossed the waves before coloring and cutting.


Cardstock - Papertrey Ink, Watercolor paper
Stamps - Papertrey Ink: What the Doodle Waves, Sand Swatch Mini Set; SparkleNSprinkle:              Summer Fun
Stencil - Papertrey Ink Sund & Surf Stencil Collection
Other - Tim Holtz blending tool, Hero Arts Shadow Ink, Copic Markers, foam dots, Crystal Effects

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you're having a great summer in the sun!

CAS373 - His & Hers Birthdays

Summer is finally here.  Hot steamy days, followed by booming afternoon thunderstorms are the norm.  Warm balmy breezes, palm trees and walks on the beach fill the longer days.  Perfection.

The rush of spring weddings has slowed and that means I can steal a few minutes for card making.  My love is still CAS style.  CAS373 on SplitcoastStampers was birthday cards.  I say "was" because this challenge was from April!  Thank goodness there are no deadlines!  :)

Papertrey Ink Brushed Off Stamp Set and a simple change of color way and I have sets of cards for birthdays that can also be used for just about any occasion by simply changing the sentiment.

I used my favorite A Muse pigment inks and simply gave them a quick dry with my heat tool to  set the inks.  I just love the vibrant colors.

Stormy days mean terrible photo lighting!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you get some time to run through a sprinkler or wiggle your toes in the sand this summer.
