Bleach Stamping

This week I had some fun with a technique that I had only dabbled in a long time ago.  And I discovered that I LOVE IT!!!  Stamping with household bleach is so darn cool.  I planned some cards for a class coming up soon (you can check out a sneak peek HERE) and while I had it all out I had some fun with some Ippity stamps also. Check out my card.

I love that you never know how it will turn out.  So Fun!

Thanks for stopping by,

I'm Dreaming of a Shabby Chic Christmas

And my crafting is reflecting that!  These are the cards that I designed for a recent class down at Catchy Crafts and I thought I would also share some kits on Etsy for those people who are not close enough or just can't make it to the location.

I love working in these colours and I think they are a nice fresh approach to the festive season coming.  The kit can be found HERE and includes all you need to construct the three different cards.  You just have to stick it all together.  Easy as!

 Made with gorgeous Bo Bunny Christmas papers.................

Finished off with a sentiment, eyelet and rustic twine.  So cute to add to you parcels, cards, Christmas tree or scrapbook pages.   Be quick as I only have limited sets.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

.............jingle all the way!

Yep, Christmas is just around the corner and yesterday in the mail I received the Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft Christmas Special magazine.  While reading it this morning with my coffee I found myself very inspired and full of Christmas spirit.  Go out and grab your copy to get you started on your Christmas cards.

Inside the magazine Jane Clark (technical editor) featured the card I sent her last year in the Readers Gallery and also featured the stamp set in the stamp section.  Isn't that so nice of her?  Thanks Jane.  I love it when people appreciate the effort you go to with handmade cards, especially at Christmas.  Here is the card that that I sent her:
I just love that German glass glitter around the diecut edge, don't you?

So after I finished my coffee my fingers got itching to make a card.  So I pulled out Season of Joy and got busy.  Within 15 minutes I had this little card finished and ready to share with you.  How quick is that?

Here is the stamp set images, it features a huge 16 stamps including frames and sentiments and is only $30 (including postage in Australia).  So pop on over to Etsy HERE to grab your set to get busy on your Christmas cards.  This set makes it SO easy.
