Time passes quickly, and it’s been three months since I first played with this Bubble Over Bundle at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Salt lake City. This Bundle was at the top of my list, and I’m still having fun creating with it.
I first stamped the smaller of the two bottles in the Bubble Over stamp set, and the five bubbles, in Daffodil Delight ink. The Bottles & Bubbles die set has the dies for cutting. The five bubbles are on one stamp, and the die cuts them out separately.
Next, I stamped “Your kindness is most refreshing” in Dapper Denim ink, and used the bottle label die from the Bottles & Bubbles die set for cutting.
If you order the stamp set and die set together, they are called a Bundle. And, if you order this way, Stampin’ Up! rewards you with a 10% discount. I’m all about the discount, so I bought the Bundle.
All of this bubble action seemed to call for the Sequin embossing folder, which I used to emboss the Whisper White background. I layered this on top of striped Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper on a Thick Whisper White card base.
I wanted the bottle to stand out (literally), so I placed it on dimensionals on top of a 2″ banner that I cut with the Triple Banner Punch. I embossed the banner for interest, and raised it even higher on Adhesive Strips.
Both embossing folders, the Sequins and the Simple Stripes, are in the Occasions catalog.
I embellished it a bit by adding a bow of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine, which looks like Dapper Denim. Right? And, if you’re wondering, I purposely frayed the ends. I’m a neat freak, so this wasn’t easy. If you see a touch of shine, it’s from the Clear Epoxy Shapes making more bubbles.
Some cards call for a certain sentiment on the inside, so I added, “May your day BUBBLE OVER with happiness” in Dapper Denim ink, along with some stamped bubbles in Daffodil Delight. This lead to completing the envelope flap with dotted Melon Mambo Designer Series paper.
All of this resulted from inspiration I received from two challenges.
The colors are from Global Design Project.
And, the sketch Design is from FabFri.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. “May your day BUBBLE OVER with happiness.”
