This was one of the cards we made for the previous weekend’s class – Bokeh is a fabulous technique. We used one of the Stitched Circles from the Stitched Shape framelits; these lovely dies will be in next year’s catalogue but they are available right now along with some matching discounted stamp sets – check it out under ‘Stitched from the Heart’ on the Stampin’ Up! website.
When I’ve used this technique previously I’ve sponged the circles directly from the Whisper White stamp pad, but the sponge always leaves some ink behind to discolour the stamp pad, so this time I used the re-inker and it worked a treat!
I think the copper embossing and copper foil look really good with these colours.
Card: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Copper foil
Stamp Pads: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Versamark
Stamps: Better Together
Other: Stitched Shape framelits, Layering Circle framelits, Flourish thinlits, copper embossing powder, Whisper White craft re-inker, sponge dauber, acetate, various size circle punches
Don’t forget the Online Extravaganza if you haven’t already checked it out – great savings on select items from 21st till 28th November, but some are only available till stocks run out!

I had a great time at On Stage Live; it was wonderful to catch up with ‘old’ friends and to meet some new friends too. So much to see and do – fantastic stamping demonstrations, business presentations, celebrations, new stamp sets, make & takes (with some gorgeous new products), prizes and a lovely new catalogue to drool over!
These are some of the lovely swap cards I received at On Stage Live:

These were the other swap cards I made for On Stage Live. I love this stamp set but it’s hard imagining snow while we’re sweltering here in December so I turned the snowmen into sand friends instead – a little more appropriate for our climate!

Stamp Pads: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Real Red
