Do More With Bokeh-3

I used all pink inks for this background and coloured it by sponging the usual way in patches before applying the Kraft ink but this time I cut the layer in panels.

The Stitches And Craft Show

I had a great day yesterday on the Stampin' Up stall at the Stitches and Craft Show.  The Stampin' Up stall was amazing! There were a lots of fabulous kits for sale, all put together from our creative crew. I met lots of lovely people, some new to stamping and many seasoned stampers - a big hello to you all.  I had a lovely time chatting to you and hope that I may get to see you again!
I am having a quiet day today but my stamps are not too far from my thoughts, as I am starting to think about my Christmas projects to come.

Do More With Bokeh -2

I think Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party made one of my favourite background colour combinations.
The tiny white matt made the bokeh layer really stand out.

Do More With Bokeh -1

Big bold stamps look great stamped on a bokeh layer.  The stamp is new from the Holiday Catalogue,Happy Ornament. It is stamped and embossed with Copper  and has a Copper Foil matt as well.                                                                       For this card I sponged the background colours of this bokeh layer a little differently.  I chose three blue inks - Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Soft Sky, and sponged diagonal bands of colours.

The Stitches & Craft Show

The Show starts tomorrow and runs through until Sunday. I am really excited! I have just returned from helping to set the stall up and seen all the wonderful things that are available to you from all of the other Stampin' Up demonstrators that are participating.  All of the demonstrators have put some wonderful kits together.

For this show, I put some card kits together that feature the 'bokeh' technique.  Bokeh being, layers of overlapping shapes, applied over a background of colour.  With this kit you get to learn this technique and make two cards. I have designed 9 different layouts in all.  Here they all are!

Hope you like them! I had lots of fun making them. Over the next four days I will have more Bokeh cards to share. All with a different feature.
