Stampin’ Up! Convention Swap #2

Conv Swap 2015 2Happy Friday Stampers!  I wanted to share another Sneak Peek on my 2nd Swap.   I didn’t have time to write down all the supplies used for this one but will post the full card next week when I get home!

All I can say is I’m loving the New In-Colors this year and who doesn’t like Ice Cream????

I am in LOVE with this set called “Sprinkles of Life” (139971) and it’s this years Ronald McDonald House set!  With every stamp set bought Stampin’ Up! donates $3.00 to the Ronald McDonald House! How awesome is that! Plus this one also has a matching punch! Of course it does!!

Well it’s that time once again for Stampin’ Up!s Convention!  I am headed out today and I can’t wait!  I’ve got my swaps done….I know I am shocked not last minute down to the wire rushing around!   I’ll give you a quick Sneak Peek then I’ll post the whole card Thursday!

I know long time no post – it was super crazy with school ending, Baseball was in “Full Swing”, with my son’s season ending then he made All Stars so it didn’t end! BUT we are taking a nice break and with summer in motion it’s all about the Beach, Vacation etc.  So I’ll be planning Classes and an Open House very soon!

Bokeh Technique

Hi Stampers,

Well I wanted to share some cards I made using a Technique called “Bokeh”. The term itself comes from Photography. It’s the blury look you get from taking pictures of lights. They have an out of focus faded look.

Well I’ve been watching lots of awesome videos and found 2 of my favorite methods!

First sample is Bokeh Tech1Bokeh Tech2the Water color version, this one will take longer to dry.

Card was inspired by another fellow Demonstrator Sharon Armstrong!

No matter which version – Make sure ink is completely DRY before stamping your greeting.

Next is the Ink to paper version which you really have no wait time except letting the Craft Ink dry.  You can use a Heat Tool gun for this!

These 2 samples were inspired and “CASED” from Dawn O from how’d she do that? And the next was from Mary Brown aka Stampercamper!

I’ve done a short video showing both of them which you can see below.

Thanks for stopping, enjoy and as always…..

Happy Stampin’,
