Welcome to a New Year, may 2019 bring love, health and kindness …and many more card making adventures!  This month at CAS Mix Up we’re starting with the Bokeh technique.  There are plenty of videos for you to try this technique, plus so many incredible creations from this great design team.

For the first card, the bokeh was created by sponging PanPastels through a DIY circle stencil in the colours of Light Gold, Rich Gold, Silver and Pewter.  I also added frost white Colorbox pigment ink at the end.  For the Penny Black flutter Vellum die cut, I stamped and silver heat embossed a Technique Tuesday stamp called Fanfare.  The body of the butterfly was gold heat embossed several times.

For the second Bokeh card, I sponged Memento Ink in blues and greens through my DIY stencil.  I finished with white Colorbox pigment ink and decided to add glitz EP.  A white glitter paper penny farthing die cut from Tattered Lace was added.  The sentiment, “Pour toi… que j’apprécie” (For you… who I appreciate) was stamped and also glitzed 😀

Do join in on the fun with Bokeh + stamping +*Your Choice.  There’s plenty of inspiration and videos to get you started.  Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,
