Hi everyone.

It is lovely to be back creating again after my break!  But I can tell you – some of my mojo seems to disappear when I haven’t been in the craft room for a while! So I started with something that I have wanted to create since seeing the Beautiful You Stamp Set in the New Occasions Catalogue.

I wanted to create a stormy effect to use with the lady carrying the umbrella.  I have used the Bokeh Technique in the past, and new I would be able to create the background I was looking for – so off I went!

I demonstrated how to make this card Live on Facebook this week, so you can easily make it too! Take a look at my video at My Paper Oasis – and scroll down for the card measurements.

Here’s another one using the same technique, but this time I used Blushing Bride and Rose Red to create the background.

This set is truly lovely.  So many possibilities for lots of occasions! And that FONT!!!!!  But if you don’t feel like creating your own Bokeh Backgrounds, our new Designer Series Paper – Falling in Love – has made it truly easy for you! With not one, but three different Bokeh Backgrounds to choose from, creating this card has never been simpler!

I hope you like these examples of this technique and that they encourage you to have a go at creating your own!
