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!

Then I colored him using the Stampin’ Blends and added a puff of cotton to his cap with a drop of Fine Tip Glue.

I also used a banner from the Festive Farmhouse DSP with a bit of gold thread in front of it .
