I was excited to receive the Seaside Bay Bundle in my pre-order, and wanted you to see how great it is for #simplestamping. That means, with just stamps, ink, and paper, you can create this sympathy card in a jiffy.

Seaside Bay #simplestamping


The 6″ X 6″ By The Bay Designer Paper is gorgeous, and you get 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.


For today’s card I cut one of the designs, 5 1/4″ X 4″, and glued it to a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at  4 1/4″.

I simply stamped the Sanderling birds, in Espresso Ink, right on the By The Bay Designer Paper. The birds are together on one stamp, which makes it even easier!

This was followed by stamping the sand in Crumb Cake Ink, and “heartfelt sympathy” in Night Of Navy Ink. I used a Stamparatus to insure my stamping was as dark as I wanted, and that’s all there was to it!


For more advanced card making, the Seaside Bay Bundle includes Seaside Bay Dies. There are 16 dies in the set, and some of them cut images from the designer paper. How fun!

Ordering begins January 5, 2023, and if you are one of my faithful customers, I ordered a catalog for you that Stampin’ Up! will be sending during the next few weeks. Until then, enjoy my sneak peeks, and shop “Last Chance” and “clearance.”
