“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 9th October 2014

Thursday Classes were fun filled, as I got to teach the Bokeh Technique again, I just love love love this gorgeous technique!
+ we got to make an Exploding Purse and matching 3”x3” card …

Project 1 Bokeh Technique

The cardbase for the card is Night Of Navy, with layers of Whisper White.
The stamp set “Serene Silhouettes” is perfect for this style of card, and the ladies got to choose between White or Black Embossing Powder, and they all chose Black!

The inks used for this technique are Coastal Cabana and Night Of Navy, with the Bekeh circles made using my Ghetto Template, Sponge Daubers and White StazOn ink.

Ghetto Template

The sentiment “just because” is from the stamp set “A Dozen Thoughts”, and I actually bought this stamp set just for this one sentiment!
Another special effect is the paper piercing with “Essentials” Paper Piercing Pack.

For the card insert, I kept the wording plain {i.e. non-existent}, but added negative detail with the Hearts Border Punch, and the border in Not Quite Navy from the “Choose Happiness” stamp set.
And of course a card wouldn't be complete without some butterflies {from the “Papillion  Potpourri stamp set}, which are stamped in Coastal Cabana and Not Quite Navy, with 3 little Pearl Basic Jewels added to the centre of the butterflies.
Wah-lah …”Bokeh Technique” done!

Here’s a couple of samples from the ladies…

No two Bokeh Cards will ever be the same!

Project 2 Exploding Purse and Matching 3”x3” Card

I was originally shown how to make the "Exploding Purse" by Jacque Williams back in 2012, and they are so easy to make, using a single sheet off 12”x12” Designer Series Paper {cardstock which is printed on both sides}.

Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score at 4” and 8”.
Turn the sore around 90 degrees, and score again at 4” and 8”.
Cut the corners off as per the diagram, and fold the corners inwards to form a box. Pinch the sides inwards, and then prepare the topper.
I chose to use the “All Is Calm” Specialty Designer Series Paper for this Exploding Purse, with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla cardstock forming the topper.

A gorgeous swirl from the ”Flowering Flourishes” stamp set has been embossed in Silver on the back panel.
The flower is made by punching 3x “Blossom” and 2x “Pansy” Punches in Lost Lagoon cardstock, which has then been braded with an Antique Brad, and then spritzed with a blend of h2o+Isopropyl Alcohol +Glimmer Paint, then left to dry,
We made 2 flowers, as we used the second flower on the little card.
Some 3/8' 1cm Silky Taffeta Ribbon in Lost Lagoon has been threaded through Topper to form the handle.
For the closure, self-adhesive Velcro has been used.

For the 3”x3” card, Soft Suede has been cut to 6”x3” then folded in half.
Using the “Postage Stamp” Punch, 4 squares/stamps have been punched from the left-over cardstock from the Purses {the ladies swapped scraps so they ended up with 4 different squares/stamps for their cards}.
The squares/stamps are then adhered to the card and the flower added the centre.
The card insert is left plain, as it is so small, 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” in Very Vanilla.
Wah-lah … Project 2 Exploding Purse and Matching 3”x3” Card done!
