For January’s classes we used the very quirky and versatile Bubble Over stamp set and the co-ordinating Bottles & Bubbles Framelit dies, the ladies loved them. As their table gift I gave each lady as 6” by 6” sample pack of the co-ordinating Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (dsp) which is available as a free Sale-a-Bration item with a £45 order.
We started the first card by die-cutting a large and small bottle from one of the Bubble & Fizz dsp sheets. I love that the dies can be used to cut out the dsp patterns in this way. We stamped the ‘bubble’ image in Lemon Lime Twist ink randomly across the upper third of a strip of Whisper White cardstock 5⅞” by 2½”. The prototype card in the picture shows the bubbles in Daffodil Delight ink but we decided we preferred the Lemon Lime Twist. The sentiment – either Love You or Thank You – from the Baby Bear stamp set was then stamped at the bottom of the panel in Bermuda Bay ink. We took a small piece of Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon, about 4”, and wrapped it around the white panel securing on the back with Sellotape. The ladies then chose a pattern from the dsp and cut 2 strips each 6” by ½”, they then glued the strips on either side of the Whisper White panel. This panel was then adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The die cut bottles were then adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the second card the ladies chose a piece of dsp and using the Stampin’ Trimmer cut it to 5⅜” by 3⅝”. This panel was then added at an angle, or catawampus to a Lemon Lime Twist card base. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock the ladies stamped the larger bottle using Archival Basic Gray ink and a Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a good image. We also stamped the label in Lemon Lime Twist ink and the sentiment was added on top in Archival Basic Gray ink. These pieces were then die cut using the Big Shot and they also die cut one of the cute little bottle caps. The label and bottle cap were glued to the front of the bottle using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. Taking a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5⅜” by 3⅝” the ladies die cut an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies. This panel was added to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the die cut bottle was added using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Tombow glue.
Thirdly we made a bottle tag starting with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock 8¼” by 2½” which we scored using the Stampin’ Trimmer (love that it cuts and scores) at 5½”. Taking a 1¼” Circle Punch we punched a hole roughly in the centre of the smaller side. At the bottom of the longer side we cut a shallow banner using scissors. The ladies then chose a piece of dsp and cut it to 4½” by 2⅜” and adhered it above the banner point. Bubbles were then stamped in either Lemon Lime Twist ink or Bermuda Bay ink across the top and down one side of a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4¾” by 1½” and this piece was added to the tag on top of the dsp. Taking a scrap Whisper White cardstock the ladies stamped the larger bottle in Archival Basic Gray ink, the label in Calypso Coral ink and the sentiment in Archival Basic Gray. These pieces were then die cut using the Bottles and Bubble Framelit dies along with one of the cute straws. The labels and straw were then added with Tombow Liquid Adhesive to the die cut bottle and the bottle added with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the bottle tag.
To finish off the projects the ladies added some of the mini sequins taken from the Silver Sequin Trim using the Fine-Tip Liquid Adhesive.
The ladies loved the projects and I want to thank them for all the fun, laughter and chat this week.
