Under the Sea!

UPDATE July 7, 2018:

TOP 3 pick at Always Fun Challenges!
Southern Girls Winner’s Circle! 

I missed the beach trip with the Chapman’s this year…beach hair, flip flops and sand between my toes. The next best thing to paradise is to get lost in my art room! Not exactly the same, but it was relaxing. Jake made me a Pina Colada to sip on AND I wore my flip flops. I even spilled a little embossing powder on the floor that felt like sand. Eh, I’ll get my trip at the end of the summer!

This week’s Cupcake Inspirations theme challenge is Under the Sea!

CIC 449

Our sponsor this week is Birch Press Designs and they are offering a $20 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner. Make something and share it with us for a chance to win!


It’s not the beach, but it makes me happy!

Club Scrap stamps and stencils. Available supplies are listed at the end of this post.

I even filmed a video of the process with some “beachy” guitar music in the background!

I created lots of layers of ink, coloring, gluing and heat embossing (I love to watch it melt)!
