Are you kidding?  Bleach on a card?  Yes - regular household bleach creates the beautiful Vanilla color on the flowers on this card!   It's an easy technique that anyone can do!  I used the Avant Garden stamp set - one of the free items available during Sale-a-Bration (it's the best sale of the year and there are only a couple of weeks left!) 

Avant Garden, Bleach Technique, #avantgarden, #bleachtechnique, #stampinup,, #bjpeters, #hexagondynamicembossing, #birthdaycard, #rubberstampingtechniques, #handstampedcard, #papercraftingtechniquesEach color of cardstock that you try this on, turns out a little differently.  I can tell you that way back when, I tried on non Stampin' Up! cardstock - the results weren't as good.  To do this technique, you must have an outline image that is embossed.  Check out this video.


I hope you give this a try!   Share your bleaching technique ideas on my Facebook page for us all to be inspired from!

Penned & Painted Shaker Card

Penned & Painted, Shaker Card, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #penned&painted, #shakercards, #stampinupclasses, #stampingclasses, #bjpeters,, I have fallen in love with Shaker cards and how EASY - yes I said easy they can be!   That is if you are using Stampin' Up!'s new foam adhesive strips!  This card is totally inspired by one my friend Connie gave me - it's just perfect and well a work of art! 

The reason is that it's a work of art is that it comes with its own keepsake easel! 

Penned & Painted, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #penned&painted, #shakercards, #stampinup, #bjpeters,, #onlinecraftingclass, #stampinupclassWhat a great lasting gift!  Love it!  Connie is a genius!  Check out this video for more tips and tricks.

  • Smokey Slate - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"
  • Inside - Whisper White 3 3/4" x 5"

So, what did you think about the "kissing" technique?  What other patterns will you use when you do the "kissing" technique?  Be sure and share your ideas!

Petal Potpourri + Positively Chevron = Gorgeous!


Petal Potpourri, Kissing Technique, StampingOne of the absolutely best reasons I love being a demonstrator is the hundreds of fellow demo friends I have around the world!  As friends we share ideas and I saw this idea shared by one of those great demos! 

It's a pretty cool technique called kissing - yes Valentines Day is past but, the kissing can continue!  LOL.  I used the Petal Potpourri stamp set.   Inked it up in Melon Mambo and "kissed" it to the Positively Chevron stamp.  When you do that, some of the ink will come off on the Positively Chevron stamp - thus leaving the chevron impression in various shades of Melon Mambo on the Petal Potpourri stamp. 

Petal potpourri 3Here you can see how the Petal Potpourri flower has been inked in Melon Mambo and then I just stamp it - or kiss it to the Positively Chevron stamp which is uninked.

Petal Potpourri 1The results are stunning!   And this image from the Petal Potpourri stamp set is the perfect stamp for this technique.  I added the Chevron ribbon, the 7/8" scallop circle stamped from the Petal Potpourri stamp set.  And of course the rhinestone bling.

Petal Potpourri 2I love this greeting.  It is from a set of 4 great greetings called Fabulous Four.
