Bokeh Stars Background


The stamp set is called Bokeh Dots, but there’s actually 2 different stamps in the set. One creates the bokeh dots; the other looks kind of like fireworks, or stars. That’s the one I used today to create the background behind the leaves.

I pulled my colour palette, as usual, from the designer series paper.


First, create the 3 squares using Whisper White cardstock, the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Next, stamp bokeh stars from the Bokeh Dots stamp onto each square in Powder Pink ink.  Use the small leaf image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and stamp onto each square in Cajun Craze ink.

Cut a panel from the Nature’s Poem DSP, and attach a length of (retired) Tranquil Tide ribbon across the middle, horizontally.  Use Tear & Tape to attach at the back. Next, attach each of the squares on top of the ribbon, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Colorful Season stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink onto a scrap of Whisper White. Attach it on top of a strip of Tranquil Tide cardstock with Dimensionals. Use your Paper Snips to create banner tails in each end of each piece of cardstock. Attach it to the bottom of the DSP panel with more Dimensionals.

Create a card base from Tranquil Tide cardstock. Attach the DSP panel to it, with Dimensionals. Finish off the front panel by attaching 2 of the Leaves Trinkets to the upper left, and bottom right corners.

I added a panel of Whisper White cardstock to the inside, and stamped another sentiment from the Colorful Season set, in Tranquil Tide ink. I also added the leaf image, repeated from the front, down the right hand side, for extra interest. You can see the leaves, in the picture above. Because apparently I forgot to take a picture of the inside!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
