Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well! 🙂
I hope that you got your Stamparatus reserved yesterday? I did!! Whoo-Hoo!! Can’t wait to get it!
I had a visit today from the Big Brown Truck! Yep – my Pre-Order arrived! Watch for some peeks tomorrow, okay?
Speaking of peeks – sneak or otherwise – today I want to share one of the cards we made at our meeting the other day. And introduce you to the Bubble Over bundle!
The bundle consists of the photopolymer Bubble Over stamp set…
and the matching Bottles & Bubbles Framelits…
And there’s Designer Series Paper, too. But – guess what? The paper – called Bubbles & Fizz – is a Sale-A-Bration item! That’s right – when you make a purchase of $50 (before shipping and tax) you could pick this fun paper!
A fun feature is that the bottles in the Bottles & Bubbles Thinlits match – and cut out! – the bottles you can see there on that top paper! And the same is true of the bottle caps. Cool, huh?!
And – should you get the bundle and the paper – you could make the cards we made on Sunday. Take a look-see at the first one!
I think this is such a cute card – love the idea of using Vellum card stock for the bottles, don’t you?
We started with a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock and stamped the little bubbles image from the Bubble Over stamp set in Bermuda Bay near the top. I love love love that image – the bubbles are simply perfect!
Then we matted the panel on Peekaboo Peach and wrapped some Peekaboo Peach Baker’s Twine around the panel three times – securing it in the back with scotch tape.
We cut three bottles from Vellum card stock – two of the smaller bottles and one large. I cut a couple pieces of Bubbles & Fizz DSP with the label die in the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits and adhered them to the bottles with Liquid Glue. We heat embossed the sentiment from Bubble Over in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Calypso Coral card stock and cut it out with its die, too! I popped that sentiment over the middle label with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the labels and right at the very top of the two smaller bottles and popped them on the card front.
With the dies in the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, we cut a couple of straws from Whisper White card stock and a few bottle caps from Silver Foil. I adhered the straws “inside” the large bottle with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom, behind the label. Then I used more Dimensionals behind the label and on the straws to pop that over the other two bottles. I adhered the bottle caps to the two smaller bottles and one at the bottom of the large bottle with Liquid Glue.
To finish it off, I tied a double bow from the Peekaboo Peach Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot. Then I added some of the new Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes pack (available 3 Jan!) over the bubbles – they really look like bubbles, y’all! And that was it for the card front.
On in the inside, we stamped two bottles – one in Peekaboo Peach and one in Lemon Lime Twist – on a Whisper White panel. Then we added some Bermuda Bay bubbles!
We Fast Fuse’d the panel into our Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensional and the card was done!
The Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Bermuda Bay Bubble Over bubbles up the side on the front…
…and I added some fun paper from the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-A-Bration DSP to the envelope flap!
Et Voila! Amy designed a great card for us with this fun new set….are you writing this one down on your Wish List?!? I hope you like!

So – Finn had a pretty good day. He played and ran and the horseshoer came. So – he got to eat horse hoof and…well. Other stuff in horse feet!
He was pretty darned good – even went and laid down (mostly) when I decided he’d eaten enough…”other” stuff!
All the ponies and The Big Guy got mani/pedi’s.
I came back in the house and work/life struck.
And that was what I did the rest of the day. Non-stop. On the phone all freakin’ day.
Why do I tell you this?
Cuz – I had exactly one real opportunity to take a picture of the Man.
And I didn’t.
Not one new picture.
I’m very very sorry.
Here’s a horseshoeing picture from a year ago – Finn’s first time.
He’s come a long way since that day when he had to be held on a leash the whole time, huh?
Hopefully I’ll do better on the Finn-Fan-Fix Front. 😦
