Demonstrator Blog Hop - November 2023

Today I'm hopping with other Demonstrators around the world sharing Thank You cards.  I make a lot of Thank You cards as I share them with customers each month.  Check out these fun bubble cards that my customers will receive as a thank you for orders placed in November!

Which is your favourite - Poppy Parade or Berry Burst?  Hard to choose!

Poppy Parade

Berry Burst
The Bubble Technique is so easy.  Just make sure you use a small amount of water and a dark Re-inker Colour!  The instructions below are for the Poppy Parade card, but you can substitute Berry Burst.


  1. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut 2 pieces Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Add about 1/4 cup of water, 2-3 drops of dish soap and 15-20 drops of Poppy Parade Reinker to a cup.  Stir
  4. Blow bubbles using a straw
  5. Gently run the Basic White cardstock over the bubbles to pick up the colour
  6. Repeat until you have the cardstock covered with bubbles
  7. Repeat on second piece of Basic White
  8. Let dry
  9. Adhere ribbon around cardstock
  10. Adhere cardstock to card base
  11. Cut 4" of ribbon and tuck under ribbon on card base and tie a know to make a faux bow.
  12. Stamp sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  13. Cut out using Paper Snips
  14. Adhere to Basic Black cardstock.
  15. Cut out using Paper Snips
  16. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  17. Adhere Iridescent Rhinestones.
  18. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  19. Cut second piece of bubble cardstock 3/4" x 4". Save the rest of the bubble cardstock for another project
  20. Adhere to Basic White cardstock
  21. Adhere to the inside of the card
