bokeh-backgroundA little hard to see some of the background details in this shot, but this card uses the Stampin’ Up! set Big News  (which is in wood or clear mount) over the watercolour/bokeh background technique. An interesting background is a perfect backdrop to a large sentiment or image. I did a video showing how I did the background on the YamStamps YouTube channel yesterday. You’ll also see another sample of the background (if all goes according to plan LOL) that I did on the Scrapbooks & Cards Today Blog tomorrow in their Stampin’ Up! Saturday post. I added Metallic Baker’s Twine in Gold, and a Night of Navy backdrop embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder.


I used this card for a demonstrator only swap that I’m in. It’s a great way to exchange ideas with other Stampin’ Up! demos and it’s really nice to get “fun” mail for a change! If you’re interested in finding out more about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator with my team, my next information night will be Wednesday, June 10th at 7:30 pm. Please RSVP for directions and details. If you can’t make it that evening, please touch base with me and we can make alternate arrangements!
