Just Add Ink #401 - Just Add a sketch

I love sketch challenges. They are perfect for sparking your creative juices when you need a bit of inspiration. Check out the sketch we have for our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.
Sale-a-bration has only one week left so I thought it only fitting to showcase a few of the fabulous things you can earn for free - Tutti Frutti Cards and envelopes and Epic Celebrations stamp set.

I have used the Upright Z fold card - perfect for showing off the fabulous pattern on the card base. You can see some others I have made and find out how to make your own here. It's a great fold because it easily stands up for display.

Inside has room for a message. I love the images in the Epic Celebrations stamp set. Perfect for the cool teenager!

I love this free card and envelope pack too. The matching envelope deserved some love too.

To add a bit of interest to the card front I have added some skewwiff embossing. I simply embossed one corner using the Simple Stripes embossing folder, then embossed the next corner. Adds a bit of fun don't you think?

Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members used this sketch. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!

Stamp Review Crew - Bubble Over

Welcome back to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world that get together on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month for a blog hop. Each hop we showcase one stamp set and show you just how much you can do with it. Get ready for lots of inspiration and lots of reasons to use (or buy😊) this stamp set! Currently you are visiting Lou Kitzelman on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Hi!

For this hop we are featuring Bubble Over.

This is such a fun bundle. Both the stamp set and thinlits have so much to offer. I love the labels and decided to feature them on my cards.

I've used the smaller label die to cut out a window and both to make this delicate frame. If you want to make one at home, die cut the smaller one first then add the larger one around the 'hole' created. I'd also missed this cute 'For You' stamp and matching die. Adorable!

To make it look like there was liquid in the bottle, I inked the stamp and then grabbed a piece of paper towel (because it was closest) and dabbed off some ink from the neck of the bottle.

Then it all got raised with foam adhesive strips. Everything looks better jacked up on foam adhesive strips I think! Do you?

For the inside I added the sentiment and some bubbles floating up. I love how this gorgeous sheet of DSP from the Eastern Palace pack shines. You have to love it when the paper does all the work!

I was really happy with this layout so thought I would try it using a different label to make the cut out and frame. I really do love Lemon Lime Twist teamed with black.

The label on the bottle has a tiny die that you can add to it to cut out the little handles. Such a versatile little piece!

And the inside got a bottle cap - because it was lying on my craft desk forlornly begging to be used!

Make sure you hop around to see what all the crew have done with this gorgeous stamp set. Next up is the super creative Tanya Boser. She works so hard organising our hops behind the scenes. I can't wait to see what she comes up with each time. I love how her mind works!
