Bubble Fun Birthday!

Tomorrow is a birthday party for my two nieces and I wanted to make both of them a birthday card. Well Emily the youngest who is my God daughter and a tad bit of a tom boy doesn't do pink and girlie so I found these cute Stampendous monkey stamps at my local Archivers and knew I had to make her card with them!

This card was sooooo much fun to make!!! I started out trying to make a card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge but I'm missing a large circle in the upper right corner for the layout so oh well. The monkeys were colored with my Copics and then cut and embossed with my Nesties as well as the saying. I stamped the main image twice so that I could cut out some extra bubbles and pop dot them as if they were floating off the card. The fun part was adding the Crystal Effects to all of the bubbles to make them look wet!






























The inside of the card, the envelope and the container of bubbles all have the sassy little monkey who is sticking his tongue out on them.

These are fun stamps that I know I'll use again because there perfect for either boy or girl, children or adult and there's a lot you can do with them.

Supplies: Changito Bubbles, Bubble Over, Changito Loco - Stampendous, Copics, Crystal Effects, Ribbon, Nesties, Buttons, Piercer w/mat, KI Memories designer paper, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Only Orange, Whisper White and Blue textured card stock.

Hope you were able to have some FUN today!

What a fun card and gift. I love bubbles and I'm 44. Of course I love blowing them for my 3 yr old nephew to chase. Ü

I need to have my friend look for this set. It is just too cute. She just picked the bunny one up for me and I've inked it up, now need to color.
