New eBay Store

Hi Stampers!

Hope your Monday was awesome!  Mine was very busy!  I’ve been going through and really “cleaning house”.  It was a project that was way OVER-DUE!  WOW, you don’t realize how much your have til you really start going through it all!  Yikes!!!

So anyway I decided to open an eBay store!  I’ve got LOTS of goodies from Stamp Sets, to card-stock, Designer Series Paper and MUCH more that I’ll be listing.  They need good homes!

I also plan on selling finished product such as cards, kits etc….. So far I’ve got retired stamp sets but am adding more daily!  Check it out eBay Store.   LOTS of FREE SHIPPING!

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…..

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!

Love Life Card

I have anotheLove Life Cardr quick share before I call it a night!   I don’t know what it was about this Stamp set but I really like it!

Maybe it’s because of the Lemon. Being that my maiden name was “Limon”.  I don’t know BUT I just knew I had to have it!

Here is the first card I made using this set that you can get FREE only during Stampin’ Up!s Sale-A-Bration with a $50.00 order. Ending March 31st 2015!

I also used the Blendabilities for the background on this card!  If you have any questions please feel free to comment or email me yvonne@yvonnesstampingplace.com.  Thanks for stopping by and as always….
