Bubbles & Bubbly and sweet Lavender!

Hi Friends,

Sweet lavender and the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Bubbles & Bubbly have a symbiotic relationship! — in my humble opinion……..

When I saw this adorable stamp set, I KNEW I’d be using it to create lots of gifts.

I first took a piece of Whisper White cards stock and ran it through  the Big Shot using the Subtles Embossing Folder. (LOVE THIS FOLDER!)

Next I took Pool Party ink and used my Aqua Painter to brush on the splash background. Random and in one direction is the key here. That piece was layered onto Pool Party and then Highland Heather card stock.

On a separate piece of paper, I stamped (with Staz-On) the tub image and the ducky on the towel.

The Stampin’ Blends were used to color the parts of those images. AND I LOVE TO COLOR!!!! I also stamped ‘Pamper Yourself’ on a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock and put lots of bubbles in Pool Party! My Bone Folder ruffled up the ends of the paper just enough to give a bit of texture.

After I finished coloring, I fussy cut the tub and ducky out–easy-peasey! Popped a few Dimensionals on and placed them onto the Pool Party layer.

Baker’s Boxes are so versatile and I choose to use them. Of course I had to add some color so I filled a Stampin’ Spritzer with Pool Party refill ink. Spritz here and there and the Baker’s Box has some flair!

Tear & Tape was needed to attach the Highland Heather layer to the top of the box. Lastly of COURSE I had to add shine!

A bit of resurrected Crystal Effects on the tub gave it just enough contrast. Wink of Stella completed the necessary finishing touches…voila!

NOW INSIDE the box are four Shower Frizzies! I made them all by myself with a bit of help from Mrs. Google! LOL! They smell so nice and really work well. Simply place one Shower Fizzy on the floor in your tub and the shower water will cause the fragrance to waft all around! RELAXING!!!!

This makes a great gift for your women friends!

Jar of Love meets mini Tic Tacs!

Hi Friends,

The Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits were used to make this cute treat!

But before I tell you a bit about it, I want to THANK  Demonstrator Robin Johnson for sharing this project with me! It was her design and I appreciate her talent!

Jar of Love and Tic Tacs!

What do YOU think?

I stamped the small jar with black Memento ink then cut it out with the corresponding Framelit Die.

The Tic Tacs were attached to the center of the jar using two Glue Dots then put it in a 2″x8″ cello bag. Then I tied about 8″ of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine around the neck of the jar and tucked it into the cello bag.

The cello bag was cut down to accommodate the topper. I laid the cello bag inside the topper and stapled it together.

Calypso Coral card stock was cut at 2 1/2″ x 3″ and scored at 1 1/2″. I added a piece of Garden Impressions DSP, cut at 2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ then Snailed it onto the folded Calypso Coral piece.

The Layering Ovals Framelits were perfect to make the background piece and I used the ‘For You’ from Cake Soiree to stamp the message.

Just to give it a tad of pizzazz, I added a Glitter Enamel Dot!

What do YOU think? I think this would be a CUTE favor for Thanksgiving or Christmas ! Imagine the possibilities!

Valentine’s Day favor using the candy hearts or even St Patrick’s Day with a Peppermint Patty! Stay tuned for more versions!
