It's very easy to feel creative when work is over for the week, and to top it all up there is a whole week of annual leave to look forward to. On Monday I jet off with Sis for a few days away in Cyprus. As the weather over here is showing no signs of summer, I'm happy to get away somewhere sunny and warm for a while. Of course, that means a whole week away from my crafty stash so today I'm crafting enough for a week!
I am continuing to play with my new STAMPlorations goodies, this time I inked up the Sugar Rush set. My inspiration for today's card was the gorgeous sketch over at Viva la Verve. I was also inspired by the Daring Cardmakers challenge where the theme is bokeh and The Friday Mashup where the theme is to use stencils. I used stencils for the bokeh effect. I'm also linking up over at the STAMPlorations June challenge which is stamps and washi as well as the STAMPlorations Anything Goes for anything using STAMPlorations stamps.
Card: 300 gsm white linen card, Hobbycraft 160 gsm card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Sugar Rush
Ink: Tsukineko Staz-on Jet Black, Tim Holtz distress ink Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn and Seedless Preserves
Other: Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die, Tim Holtz Bubble stencil, washi tape from my stash
This is lovely - love the background colours you've used.

Enjoy Cyprus, I love it there
Your card looks yummy! The combo of Bokeh and Washi looks great. Thanks for sharing it with the Daring Cardmakers this week :-) (And enjoy the holiday!)

Your card is great! Thanks for sharing it with the Daring Cardmakers. I love the colours you used on your bokeh background and how you "attached" it to the card base with washi tape.
Great job with the stencil, very fun card!
