More White Stamping

Hello everyone!!  I’m here again with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our December Challenge!

Once again, the theme is White Stamping.  That could be white ink, white paint or white embossing stamped image.

I decided to go with white ink and a dauber for a Bokeh effect!!

Take a look at my card:

Sending Happy Mail Bokeh

I love this affect, thanks Dawn Woleslagle for the tutorial!!

Here’s how I created this card:

1. I added Alizarin Crimson Hue and Cadmium Yellow Hue watercolor paint to my water-socked Carson XL Watercolor Paper.

2. I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant Happy Everything in the center of my watercolor piece.

3. I created my own circle stencil out of acetate.

4. I used the stencil to stamp various size circles with my ink dauber and Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink.

5. The bigger circles were stamped lighter then the smaller circles. I overlapped the circles to create this effect.

6. I trimmed my watercolor panel down and adhered it to the front of my card base using foam adhesive.

7. I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6 mm Sparkling Clear sequins.

Easy Peasy! What do you think? Let me know.

Now its your turn!!

You can stamp away to your hearts desire, using white ink, gesso or white paint. You can even stamp an image and then emboss with white embossing powder if you want to too!!

To be clear, you CAN stamp in other colors too, but we need to see some parts of your project have clearly been stamped in white!

Clean & Simple Card Class – Day 11 One Stamp, FOUR Ways

My online card class closes today and I wanted to post two more cards before they close the gallery.  Today’s class was about stretching one stamp set to create four different cards.  The technique that I used to make today’s card is called Bokeh Effect taught by Julie Ebersole.  Its a photography technique which refers to blur or a blurry quality.

Take a look at the photo below for an example of that effect.

"Blue is my color" captured by Edgar Barany

See how the background is blurry.  That is the effect I’ve captured in the two cards that I made.  The layers of glitter on the forefront blurs the background.

Take a look:

I've Got Sunshine

Ready, Set, Go!

Ready, Set, Go! close up

I had a great time playing with this effect.  It was pretty easy to create and I can’t wait to try it with other stamps.  Both of the images seen above are from the same stamp set.  I have three other techniques to practice.

Please let me know what you think.
