1001 CARTES ON AIR – Bubble background

Hi everyone! Today, 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.

Don’t forget that you can share your Create A Smile creations with us! Upload them on the Create A Smile blog, right in the sidebar. 

I hope you got inspired!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day…

Liebe Francine,
diese Karte ist ja auch wieder so farbenfroh. Das mag ich an Deinen Karten immer ganz besonders! Die Gestaltung mit den gewischten Kreisen muss ich gelegentlich auch mal testen. Das sieht super aus.
Viele liebe Grüße aus BaWü von

Beautiful card! Simply amazing! It looks like a picture of soap bubbles that change in light colors and penetrate each other ... I'm in some kind of fairy tale :-) Great video, thank you.
