You Bubble my World • Deco Foil & Glitter Bubble Tea Card Idea

Happy Monday everyone! Today I’m sharing a cute -and extra shimmery- card, using a new digital stamp set called Bubbly Feels. This bubble tea set is SO much fun! It comes with a bubble tea image, plus a little tag, and lots of themed sentiments to coordinate with!

I have to admit I had too much fun making this card! First, I printed the image on a laser printer, using smooth white cardstock. Then I covered it with Gold Deco Foil, and ran it through a laminator. Once foiled, I colored the bubble tea with Paul Rubens Glitter Watercolors, using the colors Pearl Platinum, Rose Red, and Deep Interference Red. LOVE all the shimmer!

For the background, I simply die cut a panel, and then added the bubble tea silhouette die cut (which can be easily done by uploading the stamp to your Cricut Design Space as a cut file). I used a printed sheet from the Pink & Blue Digital Paper Pack to cut the bubble tea silhouette. I also layered the background with different strips of washi tape. Finally, I added a bit of wash on the top right corner of the card using Rose Red glitter watercolor. I mounted the panel on a Gina K. Designs Bubblegum Premium Cardstock.

Make a Shaker with a Digital Stamp

This card din’t come easy, and I’ll tell you why… This lovely Frappuccino is one of those images that gives you so much freedom since you can color it however you like… I’ve seen every color and every flavor of frappuccinos around and so all the options made me take longer, as I couldn’t decide how to color this lovely stamp! Nevertheless, I found this background on my scrap bin, and that grounded my ideas.

I colored the Frappuccino with Arteza Markers in Bubble Bath Pink, Periwinkle, Wisteria Purple and Amaranth Pink. I made the coloring look like the actual topping on iced coffee melting in the whipped cream and inside the Frappuccino. I’ve been playing a lot with this coloring idea and it works with any and every color you want to use for the coffee cup! Finished the coloring with dots here and there using fineliners, a white gel pen and a silver oil based marker.

The background is made from pieces of a printed Mixed Media Sheet, that I then foiled with Silver Deco Foil and next colored with watercolors. The pattern I printed on the sheet is quite distressed and printing it through a laser printer allowed me to run it through a laminator and foil it. The sheet is easy to tear and that is how I made the three pieces that I adhered across an A2 card panel with Mixed Media Adhesive. Finally I added pieces of Tim Holtz washi tape across the background… Love the final look, with the words on the washi. It looks quite graphic!

The heart on the center of the Frappuccino had me thinking about doing some paper piercing (which I tried and looked really nice), but then I felt like making a shaker out of the heart would be cute! This is something you can make with all your digi stamps that have a particular shape within the image. I used a Titanium Craft Knife from Westcott to cut out the heart, adhered a piece of Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet acetate, followed by a double layered strip of foam tape and a bunch of pretty Ariel sequins from Unity Stamp Co.
