Two Step Stamping and a fun Shaker Card using Stampin' Up! Bottled Happiness Stamp Set and Punch

What's your favorite carry over stamp set from the last Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog?  One of the first sets I played with last year was the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set.  I'm so happy they decided to carry this set in the new Annual Catalog.  Today, I pulled it out again and decided to do a shaker card using the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes and the Vintage Bottle Punch, which coordinate with the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set.   I used a color theme of Smoky Slate, Starry Sky, and Basic White and used a print from the Sun Prints 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, in my quest to use up some of my retired, but much loved retired products, while waiting for my new catalog order.   I added a small strip of Smoky Slate dry embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. After punching a slot for the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome, using the Vintage Bottle Punch, I filled the bottle with Effervescent Elements before sealing the back of the shaker dome. I stamped a sentiment in Starry Sky on a piece of Smoky Slate, and added a bow of Starry Sky 1/8" Metallic Woven Ribbon to the neck of the bottle.  Inspiration for this card came from Mary Fish,

The basecard for today's card is Thick basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of print from the Sun Prints !2" X 12" designer Series Paper covers the entire Basic White Basecard.  Then I cut a Basic white layer to se as my image layer.  I added a strip of Smoky Slate Cardstock dry embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to the bottom of my Basic White image layer.

The Bottled Happiness Stamp Set is a two-step Stamp Set, which means to crate an image, you have two different stamps.  In this case, Bottled Happiness florals includes one stamp for the leaves and stems and a second stamp for the blossoms.  I inked the blossoms stamp with Starry Sky Ink and stamped that image first.  Then I inked the leaves and stems stamp with Smoky Slate and carefully aligned the flower centers over the Starry Sky Blossoms to create a two-color stamped image.  You could also use a Stamparatus to help you position the two different stamps, especially if you are creating multiples of this card.

Next, I used the Vintage Bottle Punch to punch a slot in the Basic White image layer.  I removed the sealing layer of a Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome and attached it to the back side of the Basic White layer.  I turned the card to the back side, and spooned Effervescent Elements into the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome.  Once  filled, I removed the seal from around the edges of the Shaker Dome, covered the open shaker dome with a piece of Basic White, which sealed the back of the shaker dome. I finished my card by adding a bow of Stary Sky 1/8" Metallic woven ribbon to the neck of the bottle using a Mini Glue Dot.  Then I cut a 3/4" piece of Smoky Late and created a banner end.  I stamped one of the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set in Starry Sky ink onto the Smoky Slate piece, mounted it on Dimensionals and added it to my card front.
