Bleach Stamping Card and Technique and Holiday Card Idea

Bleach is not only for cleaning... you can use it with your stamps.  Bleach stamping works well with dark colored card stock.  Here is picture of a card and technique page using bleach stamping.  I also added some shimmer to this card and technique page. Subscribe for the month of November to get the instructions and details at Craft Project Central

Bleach Stamping Card and Technique page designed by Zeva

Normally, I have a holiday stamp-a-stack, but this year, I've been really busy with work, kid activities, and volunteering.  Hopefully, this will help those who will miss my class this year.  This card is almost exactly the same as the one created with the bleach technique.

Stampin' Up! Supplies (unless noted):
  • Card Stock: Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, River Rock
  • Stamp Set: Lovely As a Tree, Snow Swirled
  • Ink: Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red 
  • Accessories: 3/8" Riding Hood Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

Jolly Holiday Clothespins and Tags for Craft Project Central

Decorative clothespins and tags are one of the latest creations I designed for Craft Project Central.  I love how you can take an ordinary household item, clothespins, and dress them up.  You can attach tags with clothespisn to gift bags and the receipients of your gift can use the decorative clothespins to hold  mail, close their opened chip bags, etc.  I'm sure you can think of more uses.

Clothespins and tags designed by Zeva for CPC

The clothespins are painted and sealed.  Yes, the hard part is putting the spring back on after the painting and sealing.  The acrylic paints were close to the Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Old Olive.

Stuffed Mushroom Recipe Page at Craft Project Central

I'm still getting my craft area organized... which is why I haven't been posting or stamping anything lately. Hopefully, in the next couple of days, I will be posting my retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets and products.  I've taken hundreds of photos (accumulated alot of SU goodies over the past seven years). 

I'll start stamping again soon, but for now, here is another great recipe page designed by Shelby for Craft Project Central.  If you have been creating multiple recipe books using the recipes from Craft Project Central, you will be happy to know that this month, there is a file created that has the recipe duplicated four times so you only need to print out one page.  Hope that makes sense.

August Projects at Craft Project Central

I can't believe we're halfway into August and it will be back to school soon.  The last couple of days have been cleaning and piling up items to sell or giveaway.  I'll update my "For Sale" later this week.

I know I'm behind in posting all the fabulous August projects at Craft Project Central. Here are the latest projects.  The faux tin ceiling tile technique creates a great background for cards, and I'm actually starting to think about the holidays early this year instead of waiting till the last minute.

I'm back...

Hi Everyone!  I'm back from a great vacation - cruise to Alaska.  I managed to post the anniversary card just before leaving for Alaska and just ran out of time to let you know that I would be gone for 10 days.  Here's a picture of our ship at Juneau (the one in the middle of the water)  The weather in Juneau was warm (80 F).

View of Juneau from the top of Mount Roberts Tramway

The weather changed as we visited Skagway and Ketchikan.

Saw lots of salmon at Ketchikan

I'm behind in my posting the fabulous August projects for Craft Project Central and will catch up in the next couple of days.
