Wish Big

This is a card by Susan Field who designed this card for a organized swap at the recent annual Stampin' UP! convention held in Salt Lake City, UT.  She was gracious enough to allow me to take the measurements so that I could copy it for my July stamp camp.  I love the colors in the Bohemian Designer Paper Series and the cutie patootie Octopus will surely make someones day.

Pretty Petals

I found this layout on Google by Sam Hammond Donald, a demonstrator from the UK who live in North Wales.  I love how she matched up the coordinating designs of the Pretty Petal Designer Paper Stack to make a delightful card.  I used a different stamp set with some paper piercing around the framelit mat to make it my own.   You know me and layers.  There can never be too many.

By the way, I can't find my camera so I had to use my phone.  Probably why you won't see the paper piercing.

Bokeh, Bokeh

Talk about a fun technique.  The bokeh (BOH-kay) technique is a photography term.  The lense of the camera blurs the background with circular highlights to focus on the subject.  Or something like that.   The background is first sponged randomly with three colors of ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock until the cardstock is completely covered.  To make the circles, make a template using Window Sheets and the 3 smallest circle framlets.  Then use a sponge dauber with white craft ink to add the circles.

This is so cool and your card is like snowflakes.  No one card is alike.  Note how the bling pulls your eye to the sentiment.  Its awesome!

Blackberry is Bliss

I love the color combination of Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  Paired together their presence is stunning.  We stamped the flower on the inside of the card and the envelope.

Dahlias Personified

The stunning color combination of Burmuda Bay and Basic Black make an elegant card.  Dies by Dave gives the Dahlia a unique persona.  Don't forget to stamp your envelope too.
