Bubble Over Tutorial : Create Straight Neck Bottles & Glasses

 

Stampin’ Up! Bubble Over

The card above, which I first  January 4, 2018, showcases the Bubble Over bundle with a few snips of your scissors to alter the die cut bottles to make glasses too.

Both champagne & wine bottles have straight necks, therefore cutting the bump off the beer/soda shape will quickly change your die cut to resemble these bottles instead.

Who knew that a glass could be created with your die cut bottles? Me! Yes, I really do try to figure out multiple ways to use the products I purchase. Versatile products will be used more and I can get more bang for my spending dollars.

So here is how it is done:

Create Glasses from Bubble Over dies

 

I’ve shown how to create the glasses from both sizes of bottles, but I prefer (& the example shown shows) creating the glass from the smaller bottle die & using the large die for the bottle itself.  Again, I just wanted to give you options.

In the diagrams below you can see how the bottle appears when die Cut, the black lines indicate the cut-away needed to create the straight neck and the other dies shown are used to assemble the bottle. *Note: colors below are just samples, My champagne bottle usedGarden Green, Whisper White, Champagne Foil,Gold Foil, Silver Foil, Early Espresso, and Cherry Cobbler.

In this next diagram you can also see how the straw was used for the stripes throughout the piece (trimming edges, of course) ,the label cuts needed to create the label, & the stacking of small circles for the seal.

The hardest part of these glasses is hiding the adhesive. If you just put adhesive on the foil sheet to attach to the window sheet glass you can also use vellum for a bit frostier look) you will get a mess! This is really the reason for the heart on the stand alone glass and the partial tuck behind the bottle on the second glass. Under that heart and in the area of the tuck is where my tiny dot  of the tombo mono adhesive went.

*Another note: Foil paper picks up dents from your fingernails, so be more careful than I apparently was.

The Labeller Alphabet is small and mighty! It provided the asterisk for the seal and the numbers. I encourage you to think about this set. It is very useful for creating your own titles on both cards & scrapbook pages.

And finally, in addition to the Wood Textures DSP stack from the annual catalog (cut @ 4” x 1.75”) the Designer paper used was this gorgeous Petal Passion DSP. I used that one on the top far right and lightly colored the paper with the Light Crumb Cake Blends marker. This paper colors so nicely, making it perfect for almost any project.

Fun new Stampin’ Up! Set: Bubble Over

As you take a look through the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, does the Bubble Over bundle call your name? I think this set has so many options and the fact that it has a matching designer paper you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration is just an extra bonus.

If the video above didn’t showcase this set enough, I have a few samples of my own.

I know a few men & women who celebrate their birthdays with a refreshing beverage. They might get a kick out of this card:

Those little water droplets 💦 In The lower right corner are new to the Occasions catalog. They are mini, but perfect for the Bubble Over set.

That is the new Picture Perfect Designer Series paper in the background. Great plain, it can also be colored.

If you are creating a New Year’s Card or celebration of a special event (graduation, birth, wedding,etc) perhaps you’d prefer turning the bottle into a straight neck (just trim the edges of the neck straight on both sides from cap lip to bottle curve) champagne bottle. Wine bottles also have a straight neck.

With a little creative trimming the bottle will also turn into a glass 🍷. Don’t know how this is done? You’ll just have to check back Tuesday for the tutorial for this card.
