Blended Ink Note - Stampin' Up! Conversation Bubbles

   When I was designing for my last class I wanted to show off the Conversation Bubbles bundle but I wanted to make a card that didn't just use it as an add on to another stamp set by using the just one or 2 parts of the bundle.  After trying a few ideas this is the card my stampers ended up making.

  I love the colors that I landed on for this design!  Coastal Cabana, Polished Pink and Daffodil Delight.  Such happy colors and in the places where they overlap you get a little bit of a rainbow effect.  The colors reminded me of cotton candy or fun unicorn graphics I've seen.

  This is such an easy card to make and ends up so cute.  First it starts with a Coastal Cabana card base, then a layer of Basic White on which we blended our three colors with Blending Brushes making sure to not make the spots of color too big so that all the colors could show.

  Using another panel of Basic White the same dimensions as the blended panel the conversation bubbles were die cut.  I created a template for my stampers to use so they just needed to place the dies in the template openings.  This was a benefit because they didn't have to fuss around to figure out the best placement and the template also helped hold the dies in place so they didn't get pulled out of position with the magnetic base plate we were using.  I would definitely suggest using a template if you're going to be making multiples of the same design; it really makes the process so much quicker.  You'll end up with a lot of word bubbles that aren't needed for this design but save them to use on another project.

  Once the panel is die cut lay it over your blended panel (without adhering it!) to stamp the sentiment for perfect placement.  Next, a conversation bubble is then cut from a bit of Polished Pink.  Turn the cut out panel to the back side, add the Polished Pink bubble into the opening so the back side is up also.  Now add some dimensionals all around the Polished Pink bubble to hold it in place.  Add more dimensionals to the rest of the panel and adhere to the blended panel.

  A few embellishments in the way of Coastal Cabana twine, Iridescent Rhinestones and a heart and star die cut add the finishing touches.
