How about a bottle of brew for your birthday! The Bubble Over Stamp Set has many options, and today I’m using, for the first time, the “Have A Birthday Brew!” bottle label.

Bubble Over Birthday Brew

 

Let’s start with the bottles. It’s so much fun stamping the two sizes, and cutting them with their dies from the Bottles & Bubbles Die Set. I used Marina Mist ink for the featured bottle, which matches the Marina Mist card base. It’s such a pretty blue, and even though the color is retiring, it’s still available through May 31st. I inked up the larger bottle stamp and spritzed it with water, before stamping on the Whisper White cardstock, giving it that mottled look. I used the same spritzing technique on the other two bottles, using Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide inks.

Next, I die cut their bottle caps from Champagne Foil. Aren’t they realistic?

The paper behind the bottles is one of my favorites from the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. It makes the perfect, bubbly background. Are you wondering about the folded pocket that holds the bottles? Here I go with another challenge. Check out the sketch at TGIF.

This is how my idea originated, and I just added an extra fold, and a bow of White Twine adhered with a Glue Dot. Do you notice how the bottles are so cold they are sweating. Amazing for paper, huh? The secret is in the Clear Epoxy Shapes. 

 

More bubbles (Glitter Enamel Dots) are surrounding the sentiment at the top of the card, “May your day BUBBLE OVER with happiness.” I placed a  piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock beneath the sentiment, die cut with a Petals & More Die.

The envelope flap is decorated with the reverse side of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, and now it’s ready to mail. You can be sure, this will only go to a beer appreciating friend.

Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon!
