Seize the Birthday & Inkspirational #166

Hello, friends!  I'm here to share a card for the current challenge at Seize the Birthday where the optional topping is "Water."

I happened to use the same layering wave stamp set as Guest Designer Trina Pham, although she made her card so super cute by adding a fun surfing shark image to her card! I kept mine pretty simple, adding a birthday sentiment from The Ton.

I also made this card in less than ten minutes, so I'll be playing along at the current Inkspirational Challenge #166, where the Designer's Choice is to make a card in ten minutes or less.  That's my favorite kind of card to make! ;)

I know it looks involved, but I have to say that the layering stamps in this set make it SO easy to make this card quickly!

I actually make several of the same card (to have in my stash of birthday cards) and I mounted some on light blue cards while others I mounted on dark blue cards.  In each case, I die cut my white panels using a stitched wave die to accent the waves in the image.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Ton (Wave, Penned Sentiments)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Hero Arts (Navy), Tim Holtz distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China)
Dies: MFT (Wonky Stitched Rectangles)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card Judy, funny as soon as I saw water I thought of my wave stamp and dies. Beautiful layers in your colours.

  2. These are fabulous. Stamped to perfection and such a good idea to use the wave die to flow with the water. Thanks for joining Ink

  3. That wave is awesome and both cards are great. The colors are blended so well and this card just cooled me off as it is getting hot again here.

  4. Wow... that wave is so impressive! What a great stamp set. Great pairing with the sentiment and the faux stitching! Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!
