More Bubble Over Fun!


I know it is time to move on to another stamp set, but this one is so much fun! I have been playing with this stamp set again and thought I would show you what I came up with.  Colorful isn’t it?  I think this one is a great celebration card! It could be for graduation, birthday, retirement you name it!


I added bubbles using the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes. This along with the Bubble Over Bundle are found in the Occasions Catalog.


Love the bottle caps! So many details you can add with the framelits! The Designer Series Paper is FREE from the Sale-a-bration Brochure with a qualifying purchase of $50 (before shipping and tax).

Here is another idea


This is a quick card! I cut the bottles from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series paper using the coordinating die (they are designed to work together). I stamped the bubbles with Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’Pad on cardstock of the same color.



I hope you enjoyed my cards and they inspire you to CREATE! Don’t forget, it is still Sale-a-bration time! Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year! The Bubble Over Bundle is $40.50 so just if you add $9.50 more in product ( which believe me is easy to do) you can get the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper for FREE, an $11.00 value.

Happy Papercrafting,

Bubble Over Bundle


This is a colorful card isn’t it? So bright and kinda sassy! This card is made with the new Bubble Over Bundle from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. The bundle includes the Bubble Over Photopolymer Stamp set and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies.  You save 10% when you buy the bundle but you can purchase them individually.


Don’t you just love the details in this bundle? There is a framelit to cut the bottle tops out! I used silver foil cardstock for the bottle tops. I used the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, also sold in the Occasions Catalog, to accent the small bubbles. I used some sequins to enhance the larger bubbles. I am often inspired by other stampers and the inspiration for this card from Vicky Wright’s card, she is a Stampin’Up Demonstrator in Australia.


The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase because it is a Sale-a-bration offering.

The bottles were cut out with the appropriate framelit and then colored by running the sponge brayer over the stamp pad and then over the bottle in a back and forth motion.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

I have been stamping today and want to show you what I made using the COFFEE BREAK SUITE of products!


I really enjoy this suite of products that includes the Coffee Cafe Photopolymer Stamp set, Coffee Cups Framelits, and Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. The stamp set and framelits are sold as a bundle too for a savings of 10%.


I always like to use the little left over strips of Designer Series Paper, don’t want to be wasteful you know! So one idea is to add a strip to the inside of your card.

This is a great set to use for gift card holders.  I have given coffee shop gift cards plenty of times and it is nice to put them in a home made gift card holder. It is a nice touch!

Here is my idea


This gift card measures.4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. To make this holder cut a strip of cardstock 3 1/2″ wide by 11 1/2″ long. Score at 4 1/2″ and 9″. Fold at the 9″ score line and tape the edges up using Tear and Tape adhesive (you need a strong hold)!


So much fun to make!  I just fussy cut the branch with the coffee beans using the paper snips. I just love the coffee beans! There is a coordinating framelit to cut them out! Click here to see this bundle of products in my online store.
