Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 367

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Hi there, happy Sunday!
It's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is Your Next Stamp!
Who doesn't love their fun, adorable stamps and dies!

I LOVE this theme, so fun!
And Your Next Stamp has a lot of tropical images, perfect!
Here is my take...

Yeah, I know! No pineapples!
Well, I used a pineapple last week, and look what I made with the Create an Ocean Scene Die set from YNS!

I also spotted this lovely Island Silhouette stamp :-)
I stamped it with Sahara Sand then water colored. 
I die cut this ocean blue vellum with this wavy die that came with the Create an Ocean Scene Die set, sewed it down right on the island. 

Well, can I tell you how much fun I had making this little ocean scene!?
I die cut every creature you see on my card, aren't they just so darn cute!?
The octopus, the turtle, the puffer, and the little fish don't just cut, but also emboss details like their little fins and faces! So fun!

The sentiment aloha is from YNS also. I mean it's perfect for this tropical island scenery, right!? I also added some star sequins on the live rocks like they're little sea stars, and a bunch of sparkling sequins as air bubbles. 
I love how this turned out, and I really enjoyed making this fun card!
