Totally Techniques Blog Hop - Bokeh

Totally Techniques

I think you're going to LOVE this blog hop!!! Bokeh is our technique for June. And Stampin' Up! has a stamp set you can use to re-create this gorgeous technique...but sadly I do not have it yet.

BOKEH
bōˈkā
PHOTOGRAPHY
noun: bokeh
  1. the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.
    "a quick, visual survey of the foreground and background bokeh of a variety of lenses"

I made my Bokeh background the old fashioned way - with a watercolor wash, a template and white craft ink. You'll find a video tutorial here:

 

VideoIf the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.
 

VIDEO TUTORIAL - learn how to make this gorgeous BOKEH background and order any Stampin' Up! products in my online store! www.AStampAbove.com

This was the christening of my DANDELION WISHES and my how I love this stamp set!!! It was perfect for a busy background right? I chose Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch reinkers for this background watercolor wash.

VIDEO TUTORIAL - learn how to make this gorgeous BOKEH background and order any Stampin' Up! products in my online store! www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • Lovely Lipstick 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

  • Watercolor Paper 3-3/4 x 5

And then I used it again for this card -  wedding card. Love the softness of this color combo. My card base is Balmy Blue but the Bokeh background was made with Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue reinkers.


VIDEO TUTORIAL - learn how to make this gorgeous BOKEH background and order any Stampin' Up! products in my online store! www.AStampAbove.com

  • Balmy Blue 11 x 4-1/4 scored at 5-1/2 & 3 x 4-1/4

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Broadway Star

Paper Pumpkin

Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP for June. There are 15 of us in this hop creating alternate projects!!! WHOO HOO! I think you love what we've created with the June Paper Pumpkin Kit - BROADWAY STAR - it coordinates with our Broadway Bound Suite in the Annual Catalog! 

Get your PAPER PUMPKIN kit subscription when you click on the photo and visit my online store. www.AStampAbove.com

I had so much fun with the elements in this kit - my cards were super easy and quick to make - I love it when that happens!

The card below uses the Lemon Lime Twist banner that I trimmed down to 2-1/4" wide. The self-adhesive sequins were the perfect touch to add that little bit of bling - don't you think?


Get your PAPER PUMPKIN kit subscription when you click on the photo and visit my online store. www.AStampAbove.com

I chose to cut one of the Lemon Lime Twist card bases into three panels each measuring 1-5/8" x 4" - I added a Lovely Lipstick card base measuring 11" x 4-1/4"


Get your PAPER PUMPKIN kit subscription when you click on the photo and visit my online store. www.AStampAbove.com

And for my 3-D item I chose one of the Gold Striped Treat Bags with a Gold Library Clip to tie the Baker's Twine around and pinch in a little length of Gold Mini Sequins. The Basic Black banner is 3" x 5" with a 1" x 3" strip of Lovely Lipstick that I added the candles to. Again the self-adhesive gold sequins was the perfect touch to add to my banner.

Joke 

Sitting by the window of her convent ... Don't Despair
 
Unnamed (4)
 
Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening.  
 
Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent.  
 
Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.
 
As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.  
 
Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. - Sister Barbara," on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention and tossed it out the window to him.  
 
The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.  
 
The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.  
 
"What's this?" she asked.
 
"That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied. "Don't Despair paid 80-to-1."

Control Freaks Blog Hop - New Catalog Happiness

  CF Header

Welcome to the Control Freaks blog hop - our theme for June is NEW CATALOG HAPPINESS.  I'm super excited to show you what I made.

The Sea of Texture bundle from Stampin' Up! is one of my favorites! You'll find all the details for this card and ordering links if you'd like to get this bundle on my blog. Just click on the photo. www.AStampAbove.com

I love the fact that the SEA OF TEXTURES BUNDLE is super fun with the little octopus that I've affectionately named FRANK and you can also make an elegant card like I did here. Isn't it the best when a stamp set has so much versatility? 

I chose a watercolor wash background. Watercolor paper is the best paper to use for this technique. I wet it down with my Aqua Painter and then pick up some color from the lid of my Pool Party ink pad and distribute it around. Once that's dried I took my Aqua painter and tapped it on my finger to get droplets of water to splatter on the surface to create almost a tie die effect. I almost forgot...I used Crumb Cake ink on the bottom 1/4 of my layer under the greeting and sand dollars.

I thought the DETAILED TRIO PUNCH was a perfect little accent for the corner of my greeting layer. And OMGosh - those sand dollars are the BOMB! I sponged them with Crumb Cake ink - so pretty right?
