Big Day! for a great technique!

Sale-a-bration is the 3 month long BIG sale from Stampin’ Up! Finishing on 31st March 2015, it gives you a choice of 14 FREE items to choose from when you order £45, and each £45 spend gives you an extra item – so if you spend £90 you choose 2 gifts, £130 – 3 gifts etc. etc. Check out my Sale-a-bration page for more information!

This stamp set was designed for use with the fantastic Chalk paper and Chalk inks that are available in the latest Spring/Summer catalogue. But, I didn’t want to just show you what is in the Sale-a-bration booklet, so here we go with a great technique instead.

Stampin' Up! UK Big Day sale-a-bration Bokeh

This technique is everywhere right now! Bokeh is a photography technique, made popular but phone photo apps, where light is used to make spots on the lens of the camera – but it is also a really fun inky technique too!

Firstly, I sponged my piece of Whisper White cardstock with Pink Piroette, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant to create a coloured background. Then I took a piece of window sheet and created a mask by punching with a variety of sizes of circle. That window sheet mask then creates those fabulous white circles. Place your mask over your cardstock and apply White Craft Ink through the mask with a sponge dauber, the more ink the whiter the finish! I did this across the cardstock to create this look. Be warned though – Craft Ink is a pigment ink and takes a while to dry. I left mine overnight but you can dry it with your heat tool.

Once it was all dry I stamped the cake stamp over the piece in Sahara Sand, and finished the card with a cute tag.


This beautiful stamp set could be yours for FREE when you order £45! LOVE it!
