I have two cards to share today, both using Seaside and the Seaside Confetti Cuts dies. (I'll have a Mermaid Kisses project later in the week.)
I started by stamping and die-cutting the crab and octopus. I used a stamp positioner and sponge daubers to achieve the gradient stamping. The dots on the crab were done with Copic markers. The dots on the octopus were done with a white gel pen. I mounted them both to a partial white circle and then to one of the By the Sea Quick Card Panels.
(By the way, the By the Sea QCPs are *fabulous*! Be sure to take a look at the graphic below to see the different designs. And remember, these are limited edition, so when they're gone, they're gone.)
I gave them each a flag to wave by attaching the flag to one end of a toothpick and tucking the other end behind the crab and octopus die-cuts. The star within the circle is from the new Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts die set, definitely a new favorite die set!

This next card also features Seaside, this time the adorable whale image. I stamped and die-cut the whale, then adhered him to a cluster design made up of a circle from the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, a tag from In the Bag Confetti Cuts, stars from Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts, a hint of vellum, a tiny strip of anchors from one of the By the Sea QCPs, and some sequins.
The sentiment is stamped vertically onto the tag. Everything is on a white panel and white card base for a clean, crisp look.
