Happy Grad Card – Red, Kraft, and Blue

This was one of the cards I created for my Milwaukee Regionals Presentation.  This background was made by dipping a Koosh Ball pencil topper into bleach and pouncing it all over the Night of Navy card stock.

Love You Much – Bleach Stamping

I love to work with household products in my stamping.  I also love to stamp quick and easy cards.  Bleach stamping accomplishes both!  Here is a card I created using Love You Much stamp set and two types of bleaching – bleach as a stamp pad and bleach spritzing. 


To bleach as a stamp pad, you will need the following:

  • some folded paper towels
  • paper to protect work surface
  • a small container
  • household bleach
  • card stock
  • a clean and damp paper towel (to clean off stamps)
  • ventilated area

Protect your work surface with scrap paper.  Put the folded paper towels inside the small container.  Pour some bleach onto the folded paper towels.  Using a clean stamp, press stamp into the bleached towel.  Immediately stamp onto the card stock.  Lift off the card stock and set the card stock aside.  It will take a while for the bleach to interact with the card stock.  Be sure to let dry completely before using on your project.

CLEAN YOUR STAMPS IMMEDIATELY – DO NOT LET BLEACH DRY ON YOUR STAMPS.  I always use a paper towel to clean off the bleach first, and then I use my Stampin’ Mist and Scrub for a final clean and conditioning.

Please note:

  • Bleach affects colors of card stock differently – you may even get variations with the same color but a different dye lot.
  • Once bleach reaches open air, its strength dramatically lessens.  You will need to add more bleach if you are stamping many pieces at once.

To bleach as a spritzer,  pour a small amount into a spritzer bottle.  Prepare your work area as above.  Spritz your card stock.  Set aside to dry. 


****Please be careful when using bleach.  I do not recommend bleach stamping with pregnant ladies, young children, and those who have allergy or sensitivity issues.
