Stampin' Up! Summer by the Sea Thinking of You Card

 TGIF, peeps! Are you going to the beach today? My little girl is...

We made this card at our Thursday Card Group and the kit was provided by Sue L. The sentiment is from the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set and the image is from Summer by the Sea (2004). Both sets are retired. 

Tip: Lay the Basic White square on top of the Basic White panel and stamp the scene, being sure to leave room for the sentiment or stamp the sentiment first. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the sentiment as the main stamp is on a wooden block so it's difficult to see where to actually place the red rubber. The stamping tool could be used for that as well. I wish SU hadn't retired that tool. They replaced it with the Stamparatus and you can't use that with wood mounted red rubber stamps.


Card base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black Mat: 5 1/4" x 4"
Basic White Panel: 5" x 3 3/4"
Basic Black Square: 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Basic White Stamped Square: 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Thank you for stopping by today.


  1. Sweet card! Great way to show the spotlight technique. :)

  2. Boy, this stamp brings back memories! I wish they still had the Stampamajig too. I will never part with mine! Your coloring is sweet and that's a sweet sentiment too!

    1. Thank you, LeAnne. I have two Stampamajigs...just in case!
