Late Post.

Are YOU wondering what’s happened?  Yes! At This time of the month usually Vicki and I have a sneak peek for our 1st Saturday of the month Technique Treats but circumstances have prevented it for this month. Not to worry though we will have it all for you on Saturday, the first day of the month. At least we hope so, computers being what they are.

I can tell you that we will be showcasing the Torn Paper Technique and Faux Linen, together with the Day at The Beach stamp set from the New Holiday Catalogue. It’s one of the benefits of being a demonstrator, getting products in a preorder so we get an extra month to play with them before Christmas.

But hey you can order yours on 01/09/2016 ——Bokeh for blog– tomorrow!!!

So to add some colour to this blog I’m showing you a card from our 6th Technique Treat using the Bokeh Technique and the Sea Side Shore stamp set.  One great thing about our Technique Treats is that you can start at the first one at any time or just start with this  Saturday.

Happy Stamping ladies.


Do you make a card and know that while it’s pretty it’s a bit lifeless?  This was one of those that I shared in May on a post on Inlaying DSP.

Yellow Rose

Sure it was OK but look what I have done to it now!!

We have been working on our Techniques Pages and this month we featured the  Bokeh Technique and Ghosting.

So I was delighted when I purchased the very pretty Serene Scenery DSP pack and found some sheets with the technique already thereAltered rose 2.



I gently removed the Rose and Sentiment. Gave the leafs and sentiment a bit of colour with the Aqua pen and some Old Olive, mounted the DSP on to an Old Olive Card Base and replaced the elements.  Voila a new more vibrant  card.

See how effectively this Technique can be used! You can make your own backgrounds now and look as professional as this image, or just purchase the DSP.


Have fun.


Technique Treats July

It was great to see Gail bring a card to class that she had made using the Sponging Technique from our Technique Treats#4 Lovely as a Tree that she won last month. She said the instructions were easy to follow and she was very pleased with her card. We thought she had done a great job too. Keep playing Gail!

So treat yourself and grab this months treat on Bokeh and Ghostng Techniques  using the by Sea Side Shore Stamp Set and have a play like Gail.
