Amazing Bokeh

Good Morning Everyone,

Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what I am going to make…. This project was one of those, but I am really pleased with the result.

This stamp set immediately caught my eye in the new annual catalogue so I started with the stamp. After trying a few ink colours, I tried heat embossing the image.

I then decided to use the emboss resist technique to bring out the detail. The colours I picked out were Balmy Blue, Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. The ink was applied with sponge daubers.

For added interest, I lightly spritzed the card with water, dabbed off the excess and dried with a heat tool.

The panel was adhered to some Basic Gray card stock and then added to a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Rather than stamping a sentiment, I used the Celebrate You thinlits. These were cut from Basic Black and Basic Gray card stock. For some dimension, “you” was cut three times and glued together.

Finally, some pearl white adhesive sequins were added to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Simply Amazing

Welcome to another Pootles Team blog hop! This time we are celebrating and showcasing the free products available during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration event which is running now until the end of March.

There are lots of us taking part. A link to all the other blogs will be at the bottom of this post… Just click on the blue button.

My project features the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You dies.

I decided to use a simple black, white and silver colour scheme.

The background was created with the sunburst image from the stamp set. These were stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with silver powder.

A Stamp-a-ma-jig helped me to line up the stamp to create a circular design.

The word “amazing” was die cut from black card stock and positioned on the card.

“You”, “are simply” and “to me” were all stamped with Memento ink on to a strip of Whisper White card stock and cut down to size.

These pieces were adhered to the card with Fast Fuse.

To complete the card, I also added a few rhinestone embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
