Bubbles & Fizz DSP Meets Bird Banter


Happy Thursday! I hope you're all having a great week. Mine's been pretty good, but boy, have we had a lot of rain this week. Here in Central Indiana, we got around 10" of snow on Saturday. That melted in a couple of days, and then we had a ton of rain on Tuesday, and we're having another day today with a ton of rain! My yard is beginning to look like a pond, and the quiet little stream we have around 2 sides of our yard looks like a fast-moving river! 😲 It's supposed to stop sometime tonight, thankfully!

Well, I only have a couple more days to share Sale-A-Bration projects with you! This BIG promotion ends this Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 11:50 p.m. (MT). If you don't know what Sale-A-Bration is, CLICK HERE to find out more.

The Sale-A-Bration item that is featured on this card is the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP). It's a Level One SAB item, and you can get it with a $50 order (before shipping & tax). Order must be placed by 11:50 p.m. (MT) THIS Saturday. 

I wanted to show that this colorful paper works with more than just the Bubble Over Stamp Set. I paired the DSP with the Bird Banter Stamp Set. I colored the images in with Stampin' Blends before they became unavailable to purchase (they should be available again the end of May or the beginning of June). You can easily watercolor the birds in with ink pads and Blender Pens, or color them in with Stampin' Write Markers as well.


Dimensions:
  • Bermuda Bay:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Calypso Coral:  3-3/4" x 3" (image mat)
  • Lemon Lime Twist:  2-1/4" x 3/4" (greeting)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/2" x 2-3/4" (image)
  • Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP):  2" x 5" (Daffodil Delight banner) & 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" (Calypso Coral banner)
  • Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon:  2"

Instructions:
  1. Punch one end of both Bubbles & Fizz DSP banners by inserting them all the way into the Banner Triple Punch, and then punching. Fold the Bermuda Bay piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the Daffodil Delight banner to the left side of the card, and attach the Calypso Coral banner to the right side (see picture). The top edge of both banners should be lined-up with the top edge of the card base.
  2. Stamp the branch stamp from the Bird Banter Stamp Set across the bottom part of the Whisper White piece with the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (see picture). Stamp the smaller right-facing bird stamp onto the left side of the branch, and the smaller left-facing bird stamp onto the right side of the branch, using the same ink pad. Stamp the heart stamp above the birds using the same ink pad, too.
  3. Color the top half of the birds in with the Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. Color the bottom half of the birds in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. Color the leaves in with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. Color the heart in with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. (The Stampin' Blends will be available to purchase again the end of May, 2018 or the beginning of June, 2018).
  4. Stamp the "You're the kind..." stamp onto the center of the Lemon Lime Twist piece using the Memento Pad. Attach it to the bottom, left corner of the Whisper White piece. Fold the Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon in half, and attach it to the back of the Whisper White piece, placing it at the end of the greeting piece. Make sure the folded end is showing from the front. Attach it all to the center of the Calypso Coral piece, and then attach it to the top, center of the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Attach three Daffodil Delight enamel dots from the Glitter Enamel Dots to the bottom, right corner of the card base. Choose three different Daffodil Delight shades, attaching the lightest on farthest right, and ending with the darkest on the far left.

When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.
