“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 4th September 2014


Thursday we had a lot of fun experimenting with colour, as the Weekly Deals had Stampin’ Ink Refills listed, I created the class around colour, and even wore a gorgeous dress for the occasion!


Here I am in March wearing the same dress with my hubby.

For our first project, we played with colour and created with the “Bokeh Technique”.
The ladies all made a gorgeous card, and not one of the cards were the same!


For the second project, we used the “Blended Bloom” stamp set + Aqua Painters to create these gorgeous cards …



Project 1 “Bokeh Technique”


After watching a Tutorial; on Pinterest, I just had to give this new technique a go + it is always a pleasure to see how my craft ladies interpret the colours.


The card base for this card is Real Red {{although later that night we made one with a card base of Calypso Coral}, and the accent colour is Coastal Cabana.
Stampin’ Ink Refills used were Real Red and Coastal Cabana {and at the night Class Coastal Cabana + Calypso Coral}.


Vellum was stamped on with Black StazOn, with the words “Make A Wish” are from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set, and punched using the new Note Tag Punch.
The Tag is secured with a Mini Brad, and a Sequin added for dimension. The ladies choose to use either 2013-2015 In Colour Sequin Assortment or Frosted Sequins {or both!} for their cards.


For the insert, the cardstock used was Whisper White, which has been punched using the Heart Border Punch for negative detail.


The world stamp is from “The Open Sea” stamp set, and the words “Wishing you a wonderful journey through a world of dreams come true!” is from the “World Of Dreams” stamp set.
A perfect little heart from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack” is added for the finishing touch.


Wah-lah … “Bokeh Technique” done!

Project 2 “Blended Bloom” + Aqua Painters


The card base is Crumb Cake, and the ladies got to choose between Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, or Strawberry Slush for their theme.
The “Blended Bloom” is stamped with Versamark, and Heat Tooled with White Embossing Powder.
The flower is then coloured petal by petal with Aqua Painters and grouping of colours:

Calypso Coral Version : Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, + Tangelo Twist


Coastal Cabana Version : Coastal Cabana, Tempting Turquoise, + Bermuda Bay


Strawberry Slush Version: Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, + Melon Mambo


Blendabilities in Calypso Coral

The centre of the flower is coloured with a white pencil.
The flower is then cut into quarters and adhered to the contrasting colour, then Dimensionaled on to the card base.
A Very Vintage Designer Button is then threaded with Thick Bakers Twine, and adhered to the centre of the flower.


The sentiment ”When I need a friend you’re there” is from the “Choose Happiness” stamp set and is in White Embossing Powder .
The same stamp set has some beautiful leaves which are stamped in Sahara Sand, and 3 small Pearl Basic Jewels anchor the card on the lower right hand corner.
The Project Life Corner Punch is used on the corners of both card and the card insert, which adds another dimension to this gorgeous card.
For the card insert, a border from the “Choose Happiness” stamp set is stamped in Sahara Sand, with the small bird overlayed in Early Espresso.
The sentiment “the best thing about someone like you is that you bring out the best in everyone” is from the “World Of Dreams” stamp set and stamped in Early Espresso.
A small Pearl for the eye of the bird finishes this card off.


Wah-lah  … “Blended Bloom” + Aqua Painters Card done!
