Build a Bouquet Bokeh

Build a Bouquet 02


Happy Valentines Day!  I’ve had this idea in my head for a while but wasn’t even sure it could be done – Bokeh on both sides of one piece of watercolor paper.  The answer – yes it can!  Because the paper gets pretty wet doing this technique, I thought it would create quite a mess on the other side.  But it’s fine!  Just make sure you start with a large enough piece of watercolor paper so the sides can be cut down.  I used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi for this card.  After applying the White Craft circles, I sprayed the entire piece with Shimmer Spray!  In real life this is a very sparkly card 🙂   After the paper was ready – and dry – I used Karen Burniston’s Tag Pivot die to create the card.  The sentiment is from Build a Bouquet – it’s one of my favorite sentiments – and is over stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Pink Pirouette.

The hearts on the front are a retired Stampin Up punch and the inside heart is from Karen Burniston’s Heart Pivot card die.  I added some washi tape, sequins, and a little sliver of gold foil paper – but there is a lot going on in just the paper so I tried to just step away from the embellishments!  Wishing you lots of love today – Hugs, Fran

Love is Kindness 02

This card is the new Tags Pivot Card from Karen Burniston.  I paired it up with Stampin Up’s Love is Kindness in the Occasions Mini.  The card base is stamped with the Dictionary background stamp and the image was stamped, colored with Blendabilities and fussy cut.  A little Typeset Designer Series paper and some Chevron ribbon finishes off this card.

There is a little, tiny piece of one of the flowers that was added to the front to keep the bouquet full.  Hugs, Fran
