Bubble Background (VIDEO TUTORIAL)


Hi everyone! It's Francine and I’m back with a new video tutorial featuring the Create A Smile stamp set called Make a Wish






In this video, I show you how to create a simple but colorful background using dye inks and selfmade masks in combination with one bold sentiment. I got inspired by the talented Laura Bassen



You can see how I created this card in the video below!

Stamps: Make a Wish (Create A Smile)
Inks: Versamark, various dye inks from Simon Says Stamp 

(Lemon Chiffon, Green Apple, Maliblue, Island Blue, Doll Pink, Orange Peel)
Papers: white cardstock, acetate
Punches: 1 3/4'', 1 3/8'', 2 1/4'' circle punches (EK Success & Paper Shapers)
Various: silver embossing powder, anti-static powder bag, heat gun, tape runner, blending tools, trimmer, cutter







If you don’t have a shade you need for your project, you can mix it over the stencil, using two other colors. For example, I needed a purple shade, so I mixed blue and pink to get a beautiful purple shade that matches perfectly with the other colors.

If your embossing is not perfect, you can carefully remove the excess with a cutter. 




I hope you got inspired! Thanks for watching!
