Stamp Review Crew: Bubble Over
Welcome back friends! This time on the Stamp Review Crew we are featuring the Bubble Over stamp set. It lots of coordinating product too, so there are lots of options! It was just St. Patrick's day here, and it seems to be an excuse to party, go on pub crawls, and drink green beer. Sounds like fun, right?! Except for the green beer. I do not like beer, especially any that they would put green food coloring in, lol.
This is the set we are playing with. I love it for masculine stuff.

For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Lou Kitzelman blog. I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

First up, I had to use the DIY wreath building technique. I created my own jig for this a few weeks ago, and I just can't stop using it!

The jig was created by taking 2 pieces of 6"x 6" cardstock, drawing straight lines with a ruler from corner to corner and from side to side in half.

Then I used a 4" square die to cut a square, then rotate the square so the points are aiming at the sides instead of the corners, and die cut again.

I had to do this on each 6"x6" square, then glue them together to give them a little more depth to hold my cardstock pieces.

You need a MISTI or Stamparutus or some other stamp positioning tool, but it is slick as snot! (That is pretty slick, by the way)

ETA: Gina K Designs has a Wreath Builder kit that came out this month, which is where I got the idea. Check out her video here: 

I used a rainbow of colors and was trying to create something that was not related to booze. Not everyone drinks, alcohol or carbonated beverages.

THIS one is all about the booze though, lol! I even snuck some green beer in there. I should have put a clover on it, darn it! Why couldn't I have thought of that 30 minutes ago.

Some stamping off, and a terrible job lining up the star, but oh well. Maybe I had some green beer while I was stamping this! 

Now let's head back to Australia and Kelly Kent! She is one clever lass!

Oh my gosh, Tanya! I LOVE the first card! The colors are so cheerful, and I love the circle. The second card had a vintage vibe, which I adore. Great cards!

Oh you crack me up! I always love reading your posts and have learnt not to do so while sipping anything. You always manage to give me a laugh with that dry wit! Love both of these. So different but both so great. I need to make myself a wreath builder thingy.

I definitely need to go back thru your posts to learn about how to use that jig. What a fun technique! Both of your cards are so fun, Tanya!

These are awesome! Your jig sounds interesting I'll have to look through your posts for more info. I love the bubbles in a circle that is different and clever. Your green beer is perfect! I really wish we had at least 1 St. Patty day stamp with clovers. lol I also thought the inside was supposed to look like that and thought that's a cool idea too. lol

Had to go to the video to see what you were talking about - got it now. Cool! I love the rainbow bubbles!! I think the bubbles are my favorite thing in this set.
