Bokeh Celebration

  Bokeh Celebration

Today on Stylin' Stampin' INKSpiration, the designers are featuring the Bokeh technique.  There are several variations of this technique and I went for a very simple version using stamps from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  Bokeh is meant to look light, airy, and dreamy.


Celebrate Your Day

 I began by stamping the 2 sizes of circle stamps in Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette ink along the left side of the card and greeting panel.  I made sure to overlap the circles, as well as stamp off to create lighter shades of pink.  This gives the Bokeh depth.


Celebrate Close UP

I ran the Celebrations Textured Impressions Embossing Folder through the Big Shot.  This creates a debossed greeting.  Next, I took a blender pen and versamark ink refill to fill in the greeting.  Then I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over the greeting and heat it with a heat tool until melted.  I stamped "your day" in Basic Black Archival ink below the embossed greeting.  As a final touch, I added a few enamel shapes to the front of the card and popped up the greeting panel with dimensionals.

You'll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
