I was excited to learn the theme challenge at Paper Players this week was “birds.” Yay! Birds add so much life to cards. The project also needed to be “clean & simple,” which meant, lots of empty space and minimal embellishments.
Having been asked if I have tried using different ink colors on our new Bokeh Dots stamp, the answer was now, “yes.” The “ink to stamp” technique worked well by coloring the red rubber with Stampin’ Write markers, then stamping on Whisper White cardstock.
My next experiment was to see how this stamped Bokeh Dots image would look as a bird, cut with a Birds & Blooms die. Would you like to see a Bokeh Dots bird? Here she is:
The marker colors I used are: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Berry Burst and Blackberry Bliss.
The new Thank You die was used to cut beautiful, Thick Whisper White words. I glued this to a Whisper White matt, which was given a linen-like texture by the Subtle Dynamics embossing folder.
The letter “a” provided a perch for my Bokeh Dots bird. She is singing with happiness!
I liked the photography background paper so much (Nature’s Poem DSP) that I decided to decorate the envelope flap with it.
I hope this has given you some ideas on how to use the Bokeh Dots stamps. The possibilities are endless! Scroll on down to purchase at my store.
