Bleach Technique-Snowflake Wishes

Bleach snowflakes

Here in the mountains of southern Colorado,  on Labor Day, we had temps in the 90's. 

The following day, our temps dived to a high of 30 degrees, and we received 14" of snow!

Today, the high is supposed to be back up in the 80's.

Crazy weather!

To celebrate our early season snow, I created this card using the Bleach Technique paired with the stamp set Snowflake Wishes on Blueberry Crisp card stock.

The Bleach Technique is fun because each item will turn out differently depending on which color of card stock you use and how the bleach reacts to it.

Here is a sampling of different colors of card stock.

Bleached snowflakes

Top L to R: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler

Bottom L to R: Gorgeous Grape, Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray, Early Espresso

See how each one is different?

The technique is easy to do:

  1. When working with bleach, always cover your work surface and wear old clothing.  Remember, you are working with bleach, and accidents can happen!
  2. Make a palette. Fold a paper towel into fourths and place in a powder pal or similar. Pour a small amount of bleach onto the paper towel, letting it soak in.
  3. Ink up snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes and stamp on Blueberry Crisp card stock. Set aside and let the bleach do its thing. It will change the color of the paper, continuing to do so even up to an hour after stamping.

TIP:  To protect your stamp (especially the photopolymer), ink the stamp in Versamark first.  Always wash the bleach off immediately after use.

I hope you'll give this fun technique a try.  Let me know how your creations turn out!

Supplies Used:

Bleach Snowflake Wishes

Stamp Set: Snowflake Wishes

Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark

Paper: Coastal Cabana, Blueberry Crisp

Accessories: Bleach, powder pal, paper towel, Bermuda Bay ribbon, hexagon punch, Dimensionals

Mountain Air Meets Rectangle Postage Punch

Rectangle Postage Punch

I made this birthday card for Dale, our neighbor and good friend.

I used the stamp set Mountain Air which is perfect for our location in the mountains of southern Colorado.

I paired it with the Rectangular Postage Punch for something a little different.

To make this card, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 2" x 4 1/4".

I stamped the trees first towards the bottom of the card front using Old Olive ink.

Then, I stamped the mountains using Misty Moonlight ink.

To fill in the area between the trees and the mountains, I inked up the bottom of the tree stamp, turned it upside down, off stamped, then stamped to just get the landscape.

After the stamping was done, I punched out 3 panels using the Rectangular Postage Punch, then mounted them on a piece of Old Olive matting.

The greeting comes from Blossoms in Bloom and was stamped on a Very Vanilla card front using Misty Moonlight ink and the Stamparatus.

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Mountain Air, Blossoms in Bloom

Ink: Old Olive, Misty Moonlight

Paper: Misty Moonlight, Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories: Rectangle Postage Punch, Stamparatus, enamel dots

Country Home and Buffalo Check

Basic Gray Buffalo PlaidCountry Home with Basic Gray and Night of Navy Buffalo Check

Mint Macaron Buffalo PlaidCountry Home with Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate Buffalo Check

Here are two more cards I created using the stamp set Country Home.

(You can see more of my Country Home creations Here)

For these, I paired them with the background stamp, Buffalo Check.

To create the background, I used the Stamparatus to get a good stamped image.

Buffalo Check is a large background stamp, and getting a good inking the first time around can be a challenge.

It's easy though when using the Stamparatus.  Load it up on a plate, ink, stamp, and repeat as necessary.

Then, I added more lines by placing a ruler on the image and drawing lines using Stampin' Write Markers.

I used Night of Navy for the first card, and Smoky Slate for the second.

I cut a square out of the middle of each background using my Big Shot and the Layering Squares Dies.  I matted them with coordinating cardstock, then added them back into the background using Mini Dimensionals to pop them up.

I colored the vase, milk jug and flowers from Country Home using a variety of Stampin' Blends and fussy cut them out using a pair of scissors.

They were added to the card front using Dimensionals to pop them up.

The greeting on the first card is from Blossoms in Bloom.

I added Metallic Pearls to complete.

Blue and White Country Home

 

Blue Milk Jug Country Home
I think I might be late to the table with the stamp set Country Home.

I've had it in my collection for awhile and just recently brought it out to use.

Not sure why the delay, but I must say, it has become one of my favorites.

Better late than never I suppose!

Here are two versions using the tile, milk jug and summer flower images.

The first is a simple blue and white version.  The intent was to color it in, but I really liked the simplicity and decided not to go any further.

The second is the colored version in blues and purples, one of my favorite color combos.

The images were stamped in Night of Navy ink.

I set the tile image up on my Stamparatus, and it was just a matter of moving the plate up a notch to get the perfectly aligned and placed images.

Love my Stamparatus!

I used a variety of Stampin' Blends and Stampin' Write Markers to color in the milk jug and flowers.
