Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Release - Bubbles Card

Hello Lovelies! I think we can all agree that the Bubbles Stamp Set from Tim Holtz's June 2022 Stampers Anonymous Release! is a winner and in todays card, I finally get to test out the resist properties of Distress Archival Ink when paired with Distress Spray Stains!

You already know that we got 5 new stamp sets and 6 stencils from Tim and Stampers Anonymous for this release and as of posting, Simon Says Stamp is still offering a bundle with all the goodies plus a free set of the latest mini ink cubes.

This card is really all about the Bubbles Stamp Set, but the sentiments aren't shy about making at statement either! I used the Noteworthy Stamp Set to compliment my select "Focus" Sizzix Bold Text Diecut.

Let's take a look at the key supplies that you will need for this simple card:

FOCUS ON THE GOOD CARD - Stamping, Spray Inking and Die-Cutting

Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"




Stamp Bubbles image onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock using Distress Archival Dusty Concord Ink.

Heat set the stamping to dry it completely with a Ranger Heat Tool.



Position the stamped image into a Splatter Box.

Uncap all the spray stains so they are ready to use.

The thing about spraying is that each project will be unique, but if you wish to take a similar approach:

- spray the top right with Abandoned Coral

- continue with a band of Mustard Seed from top left to the middle of the right side

- spray the rest of the Cardstock with Peacock Feathers

- add a little more Abandoned Coral to the bottom left over the Peacock Feathers

Set aside your sprayed panel to dry,



Diecut the "Focus On The Good" sentiment out of Yellow felt and also out of black cardstock.

Tip: I used one that has an adhesive applied to the back.

To give the felt letters some additional stability, apply black letters to the back of the felt ones.



Use Pixie Tape or other washi tape to secure the black cardstock diecut negative to the center of the sprayed panel.

This will be used as a template to guide placement of the letters.

I am using the Wendy Vecchi Make Art Staytion to hold the layers in place.

Fill in the open spaces by adhering the felt letters using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue or your favorite wet adhesive.

Remove the diecut negative when complete.

Apply foam tape to the back of the panel.

Stamp and cut out the selected Noteworthy sentiment, "Just One Life" in Distress Archival Black Soot Ink on white cardstock.

Adhere fussy-cut, popped-up (with foam tape) Handle With Care image.


I would never have guessed that Bubbles would be so beautiful when brought to life with color!
