With the gorgeous evenings with daylight savings, I love being outside in the evenings and looking up at the stars! The Bokeh technique sure reminds me of the stars, but in this card, I wanted to try it with hearts instead. I used Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum with the Hearts Decorative Mask and sponge daubers.
Then I wanted to try this same technique using circles! Instead of using the Circles Decorative Mask, I took a piece of acetate and punched holes into it with different size Stampin’ Up! circle punches. This card uses Crisp Canteloupe, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party & Marina Mist.
Then I wondered if I could make a Christmas card using this same technique, and guess what? It worked!
I used the Festival of Trees Stamp Set and coordinating punch. This card uses some of the 2014-2016 In Colours of Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey & Mossy Meadow.
I think this is a stunning technique and I am loving the backgrounds. I know I will definitely be creating more of these!
This background is very cheap and easy to create, why don’t you give it a go too.
