Hello and Happy Seize the Birthday Thursday, everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Our leader Nancy chose the new toppings option for next fortnight and it’s “By the Sea”.


I made a DIY background with some starfishes and seashells using Seashells (30-843) and Starfish Wishes (30-847) stamp set from Dream & Discover release by Penny Black.


I white heat embossed the seashells and starfishes on some watercolor paper and colored the panel in Cerulean Blue and Orchid Color Burst powder. I sprinkled Color Burst on the panel and sprayed clear water on it. I then moved the color with a brush as I wanted.


After the panel was dry I trimmed it a bit and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. The sentiment from the Starfish Wishes (30-847) stamp set was stamped in Grape Crush ink on a piece of white cardstock. I cut it using the Sign die (51-608) and added it to the card. I finished off the card with a few white sequins.


Please hop over to Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from our Surprise Party Guest, Jenny Martin from My Paper Epiphany and my team mates!

Looking forward to seeing your birthday projects in the gallery! If you donโ€™t want to take the topping you may enter any birthday project as always!

Thank you for looking!
