08.12.2022…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends! I just love the Bottled Happiness Bundle! And…..I love using the Vintage Bottle Punch with the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes and Effervescent Elements! Soooooo much fun!!! Hope this card inspires you to create some fun, colorful “bottles of happiness”, too!
For my card, I started with a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I then used another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, and “stamped off” the large bottle image three separate times, using my Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad. I also added some speckling with my Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Marker. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the inside edge of the marker cap, and “flicked” outward towards the cardstock.) I used the Vintage Bottle Punch to punch out the bottle, and adhered a Vintage Bottle Dome underneath. (Note: The Vintage Bottle Domes already have adhesive on them.) I also Effervescent Elements inside the bottle.To create the “blue water”, I used a Blending Brush to add some Balmy Blue to a another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, and adhered that underneath the bottle.
To create the stems, I used the Meadows Dies (for the tall stems) and the Bough Punch (for the short stem), along with Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Next, I used a Water Painter to add Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Succulent to the stems. I wanted the stems to actually sit inside of the bottle, so I used my Take Your Pick Tool to carefully create a hole that was large enough to hold the stems. (I also trimmed of some of the leaves on the bottom of the stems, so that they would fit inside the bottle.)
The sentiment (from the Charming Sentiments Bundle) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut out the sentiment with the coordinating die from the same bundle, I popped it up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create the bow, I used White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (cut in half lengthwise), and some White Baker’s Twine (with just a few of the threads before I created the bow). For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Opal Rounds and For Everything Fancy Sequins.
