Be The Good by the Seashore with Cardz 4 Galz

Beach Card Featuring By the Seashore by Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to the next challenge at Cardz 4 Galz! It’s a great one for summer – “Seashells.” I love shells and have a huge collection of them from all of our vacations plus living in Florida for a number of years. I don’t know why I keep them now and don’t dare pick one more up! That’s the life of a pack rat, I guess. And, speaking of collecting stuff, I had lots of stamps to choose from for this challenge. The biggest problem was choosing which one to use. I used By the Seashore for the shells and So Many Shells for the sentiment.

Beach Card Featuring By the Seashore by Stampin' Up!


  • The finished size of this card is 5 1/2″ square.
  • I cut the Blushing Bride cardstock at 5″ on all sides, then added Seaside Spray on top, cut at 4 7/8.”
  • After choosing the By the Seashore and So Many Shells stamps, I went through the retired Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack. That’s where I found the laser cut background as well as the lighthouse. The background was trimmed to fit onto the Seaside Spray after I sprayed it with adhesive.
  • I couldn’t resist using the new die in the Freezin’ Fun bundle from the new August-December (holiday) catalog! The two “dunes” were cut, stamped with a sand stamp from Seaside Notions in Crumb Cake ink.
  • Since there’s always tall grass close to the beach, I went on the hunt for one and found two. The one in the retired Basket Bunch bundle worked best so I cut it with Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • I fussy cut the lighthouse out from one of the Memories & More cards.
  • Then, the shells were stamped, colored with Stampin’ Blends (colors listed below) and sponged Seaside Spray ink onto the Sea Star.
  • Finally, the sentiment from So Many Shells was stamped, cut with a square die, backed with black and Blushing Bride cardstocks. Then, it was popped up with dimensionals.
