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’,

Quick & Easy Bookmarks

Pirate Bookmark

GBook Marksood Morning Stampers!

Just wanted to post this super cute project today before I head of to work!

Awhile back my son had a corner bookmark he got from a friend and it was a pirate. It was falling apart and he asked me to fix it. So of course I did!

His classmates really liked it and kept asking where he got it from.

Well over the weekend I had a little time in my craft room SO I made all his classmates a bookmark!  Aren’t these the cutest???

Well they where a hit!  Don’t these just make you smile??? I LOVE them!

Anyway, I am making a quick video on how to make these. I will post  as soon as it’s done! Monster Book Mark 2I’m almost done with it just need to edit it!

Couldn’t resist this close up picture!
