On the CASE: Bubble Over
On the CASE: Bubble Over
Seems like forever, but it was only an extra week… we’re back On the CASE with two new projects, dissected just for you!
Ann and I are working hot and heavy on another joint-venture with a third Demonstrator (Beth McCullough) – so, I feel like we’ve been attached at the virtual hip the last few days as we prepare for the launch (more about that later). Needless to say, Ann got us both turned upside down for a few hours, thinking that our CASE files weren’t due until next week! But, we got it all straightened out, and here we are!
Ann is back in the Annual Catalog this week, while I continue to investigate the Occasions Catalog. This time I’m diving into a super fun card with a super fun bundle – the Bubble Over bundle. It’s a fun “anyone” set – but, I especially like that it will work well for kids and masculine cards too!
Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Accessories: Gold Metallic Thread
Other: Big Shot, Bottles & Bubbles Dies, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Fringe Scissors
On the CASE Notes
(your step-by-step guide)
- Score your card base at 3 1/2″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
- Adhere the black (3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″) panel to the card base.
- Diecut nine bottlecaps from the Silver Foil Sheet.
- Start adhering bottlecaps to the card base. Start with the four corners. Then, add in the rest around the edges – equally spaced. Finally, add in the center bottlecap.
- Stamp the bottlecap centers on Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstocks as shown. Punch out stamped images with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.
- Stamp sentiment on Whisper White cardstock. Diecut sentiment with smaller label die.
- Create your own paper ribbon with a 3/4″ strip of Lemon Lime twist. Score down the center, then use fringe scissors on either side of the score line – being careful not to cut across the score.
- Assemble sentiment with a piece of the paper ribbon and Gold Metallic Thread.
- Adhere bottlecap images, and assembled sentiment to card base.
How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – There’s not a lot of steps – just a lot of stamping, and diecutting! I wish there were two bottlecaps in the die set as that would have made cutting out nine bottlecaps go a lot quicker. But, they’re just so stunning in person! Not only does the die cut, but it embosses leaving a lovely, realistic bottlecap look. You’re going to love it! I was disappointed that it’s not a true 3x3 size, so it doesn’t pair with our 3x3 envelopes. If you wanted an envelope, you’d have to make one with the Envelope Punch Board.
We hope our projects today inspired you to try CASE-ing the catalog too! We’re “on the case”, looking for the hashtag #SUontheCASE on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Google+ & Pinterest) and if we find one of your projects, we’ll share it, like it, repost it – we’ll do it all!
We’ll be On the CASE again in 2 weeks!
Do you ever feel like you’re the last on the bandwagon for a new crafting technique? That’s me on this week’s CASE. I’ve been eyeballing this particular design for a while now. I’d been putting it off because I thought I’d need more time…
About a year ago, Ann and I had this great idea… We thought it would be fun to take you on a journey through current Stampin’ Up! catalogs where we CASE the projects and give you all the details to recreate them.
