Bubbles & Bubbly Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! Today's card share is one created by my friend, Lisa Curcio. The "Bubbles & Bubbly" stamp set is so cute and I can think of quite a few friends who'd love to receive a card like this, along with some nice bubble bath, soaps and a bottle of vino - what a great gift idea!

Supplies:
  • Stamp Sets – Bubbles & Bubbly (wood 147380, clear 147383)
  • Card Stock – Smoky Slate (131202); Thick Whisper White (140272); So Saffron (105118)
  • Stamp Pads – Tuxedo Black (132708)
  • Misc. – Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends (144595); Daffodil Delight Combo Stampin’ Blends (144603); Bronze Stampin’ Blends (144607); Ivory Stampin’ Blends (144606); Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends (144042); Clear Wink of Stella (141897); Aqua Painters (103954); Iridescent Sequin Assortment (144212); Fine-Tip Glue (138309); Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)
Measurements:
  • Smoky Slate (base): 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”
  • Thick Whisper White (layer): 4” x 5 ¼”
  • Thick Whisper White (banner): 5/8” x 2 ¾”
  • Thick Whisper White (bathtub): 3” x 4”
  • Thick Whisper White (towel): scrap
  • So Saffron: 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”

Instructions:
  1. Squeeze the closed ink pad of the Smoky Slate pad. Open the pad and pick up color from inside the lid using the Aqua Painter. Carefully add color along the bottom 1” of the Thick Whisper White layer as shown. Add additional color near the tub to create a shadow. The paper will pill from the water, which is fine since you’re after a wet bathroom floor look. Let dry.
  2. Stamp the greeting using Memento ink on the Thick Whisper White banner. Adhere to the upper left corner of the card base using Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the bathtub and towel images using Memento ink on the Thick Whisper White cardstock pieces. Color in the images using the Stampin’ Blends. Cut out the images using your scissors.
  4. Line up the bathtub image on the Thick Whisper White layer for placement. Stamp the bubbles image using Memento ink on the layer. Adhere this layer to the So Saffron layer. Adhere these layers to the card base.
  5. Adhere the bathtub and towel images using Dimensionals. Color in the bathtub, towel, champagne glass and bubbles using the Clear Wink of Stella.
  6. Adhere several sequins to the stamped bubbles using Fine-Tip Glue. Let dry.
