JRF Challenge #110--Stamping with Bleach Technique

This is a short post since time is running out for the JRF challenge. For this card I stamped and embossed with clear EP on black c/s then used a paint brush to apply the bleach to the butterflies. Really like the color the bleach tech. created . I then stamped and embossed again on Kraft c/s and with my paint brush applied the bleach to the butterfly love the color change on the kraft c/s . I applied Ranger dry glitter to the butterfly for some sparkle . I finished off my card with some lace, memory box Fresh Foliage and a fancy tag .

Stamps used ---JR Botanical  Butterflies.

Just Rite Friday Challenge #110--stamping with bleach

I've been neglecting my blog getting ready for our  Christmas Market this weekend . Today I had a few minutes to spare so thought I'd make a card for the challenge over at Just Rite Stamps which is to stamp with bleach .I've done this technique a long time ago so it's nice to try it again now. Unfortunately most of my stamps are acrylic and I didn't want to risk using bleach on them . After going through I decided to use my  2 of the stamps from one of my first purchases of Just Rite Stamps ---Christmas Joy. I used the snowman to stamp my bleached background randomly and then embossed with TH snowflake EF.The sentiment was stamped and embossed with silver EP and attached to a spellbinders scalloped oval . I cut 2 large snowflakes using white and silver glitter paper with a Memory Box die called Bianca Snowflake . I then attached the sentiment with Pop ups to the snowflakes. I stamped around the perimeter of the card base with pine branches in silver and then added silver trim .

Just Rite Friday Challenge #109 WOW

Well I love white on white cards so this challenge should have been an easy one but I didn't realize how many shades of white there are until I started my card .
I used Bazile shimmer cardstock for my base then textured c/s followed by another different shimmer paper which I ran through my Big Kick using the TH poinsetta embossing folder. .I used spellbinders heirloom ornament die for the ornament which I also embossed with Sizzix EF dotted squares then  added Ranger clear rock dry glitter to the ornament  to give it sparkle. The Poinsetta was made from vellum using TH Poinsetta die and TH Poinsetta embossing folder. Love how the Embossing shows on the vellum .Sentiment is from Just Rite stamp set Christmas Joy . I decorated the inside of my card using the Poinsetta embossing floder and TH new embossing diffuser folder . The Merry Christmas is cut from a new Cherry Lynn Design die which I purchased from The Cutting Garden ( a locate Scrapbooking store). I made the bow with lace from my stash .

I'm entering this in the following challenges
