Bubble Framelits Fun


Do you have the Word Bubbles Framelits yet?  If not you will be wanting them after you see this!! Oh my gosh, they are so much fun, with or without being paired up with the Just Sayin' stamp set!  The stamp set does have some great sayings.

I was impressed by a recent post on by concept artist Melodie Hyde.  She was definitely thinking outside the box to come up with these ideas.
The many ways she used the Word Bubble Framelits:

To cut out bubble-shaped frames.
As a mask for a word bubble background.
As a stamp to apply VersaMark for an embossed resist technique.
To create a texture embossed word bubble element.
To make altered word bubble shapes.

I Made this card which I CASED, see the original HERE 
Quick Tip: (which I realized after I did it) If you lay your top cutting plate over the entire framelit while you do this, you will likely have an embossed indentation in your card stock where it was laying over the framelit edge.  To avoid this, simply position your top cutting plate over ONLY the part of the framelit you are cutting.  In other words, the edge of your top cutting plate should fall in the middle of the word bubble.
