I’m excited to share my Bokeh Thinking of You Fireworks card today. Three sister demonstrators asked me to join them in a new monthly class. I was happy and honored to accept. I enjoyed working with each of them and had fun sharing our designs with our stampers.
When I first came across the Bokeh Dots stamp set I immediately put it on my “gotta get” list. The Bokeh mini background reminded me of fire works exploding. This stamp set inspired me to try a Real Red, Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel color combination. I was going for watching fireworks in a comfortable chair and sharing it with a good friend. [smile]
The bright new Blueberry Bushel In Color is the perfect shade of blue to pear with Real Red. Woohoo! This is the ultimate in Clean and Simple designing for me. What?!?! Hey, it has only two layers plus the chair and banner. That’s clean and simple for me. Lol!
The inside is a simpler version of the outside. [told you, clean and simple — grin] This Bokeh image is a third generation stamp. If you’re thinking “what the heck is a third generation stamping?” Well let me tell you about it. This type of stamping is super quick and easy.
First……you ink up and stamp the Bokeh Dots on your card front piece. Second……stamp the Bokeh Dots (no reinking) a second time onto your grid sheet. Third……stamp the Bokeh Dots a third time (no reinking) onto the interior Whisper White layer. Sweet……what a great way to keep your stamping simple and fast. This makes the image light enough for writing your sentiment but you can still see the image. Love it!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed today’s Bokeh Thinking of You Fireworks design and are inspired to get your hands inky. Have a wonderful 4th of July!
