Hi everyone! It’s Karen here today to share my fun layout featuring Joggles Bubbles Foam Stamp. I created a stamped background and used the stamp to make embellishments for my scrapbook layout.
Let me show you how I did it and share what I learned along the way.
Joggles Foam Stamp – Bubbles (57013)
Bo Bunny Double Dot Glitter Paste – Lemonade
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads – Worn Lipstick / Mustard Seed / Peacock Feathers / Broken China
Joggles Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp – Definition – Inspire 
Ranger Archival Ink Pad – Jet Black
Versamark Watermark Clear Ink Pad
Ranger Heat It Craft Tool
Inkssentials Glossy Accents Dimensional Clear Glaze
Ranger Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool
Inkssentials NonStick Craft Sheet
Other Supplies: white & black cardstock, paint brush, White Seafoam Embossing Powder (Stampendous), transparency, Midnight Bronze Obsidian Embossing Powder (Lindy’s Stamp Gang), Out of Print Cardstock 3324 (Basic Grey), Dew Drop Bubble Jewels (The Robin’s Nest), dimensional foam tape or squares
Here is my process:
Protect your work surface with a Non-Stick Craft Sheet. Ink Joggles Bubbles Foam Stamp with Jet Black Archival ink and stamp the image repeatedly to completely cover the white card stock.
Next, apply Tim Holtz Distress Inks over the bubble impressions using a sponge ink applicator. Blend the inks in irregular shapes allowing for some colors to overlap.
Three areas of each color create a pleasing balance. The colours used were: (Worn Lipstick / Mustard Seed / Peacock Feathers / Broken China)
Draw and cut out a large bubble design from black cardstock. The bubbles look better if they are not perfectly shaped but do make sure they touch so they remain connected once cut out. Vary the size of the bubbles as well. Use the stamped bubble background and mount it behind three of the larger bubble apertures. Trim away any excess overhanging paper.
Apply a thin layer of Bo Bunny Lemonade Double Dot Glitter Paste onto a piece of transparency with a paint brush. When thoroughly dry, mount sections of it behind three of the smaller bubble apertures. Trim away any excess transparency.
Cut a small heart from black card stock and apply a generous coating of Glossy Accents. Set aside to dry.
Cut a heart from the stamped bubble background and apply Lemonade Glitter Paste randomly onto some of the small black bubbles.
Adhere the large bubble embellishment down the right side of the 12×12″ pattern paper chosen as the base of the layout.
Next, stamp Joggles Inspire Cling Stamp onto transparency with Versamark Ink to form an irregular column of the word “Inspire.” Heat emboss with black embossing powder and attach to the upper left corner of the layout. Then, add a photo cluster to the lower left corner.
Tip: Attaching the transparency neatly can be a bit tricky so you need to do some pre-planning and cut the piece of transparency larger than you anticipate needing. To disguise the spot where adhesive is applied, place a corner of the transparency under another embellishment so that it can be adhered without any glue showing through.
With dimensional foam tape, add the finishing touches and adhere the paper hearts and additional bubbles which were cut to look like they were going off the edges of the page. Next, apply glitter glue and Glossy Accents randomly on the background design for extra shine and shimmer.
Finally, embellish the layout with a scattering of transparent bubble jewels.
While I was experimenting with the bubbles foam stamp, I created a second background paper using the same design & ink supplies. This time I heat embossed the bubbles with white embossing powder. (Below left)
Tip: After applying the distress inks, wipe over the embossed areas with a tissue to absorb any small beads of ink that are clinging to the non-absorbent plastic. Using the same four Distress Inks for the background colors but varying the color of the main image produced equally beautiful results. Notice the dramatic effects you can get by just changing from black to white embossing.
Above, I used the white bubble background for a simple card.
Because foam stamps are so versatile and easy to hold & clean, it was very convenient and fun to use this Joggles Bubbles Foam Stamp and, of course, it made wonderful crisp impressions. By trying a variety of color combinations, you can really make your supplies stretch farther. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial creating different looks with Joggles Bubbles Foam Stamp and will give foam stamping a try soon.
Thanks & Happy Crafting.
