One layout, two different cards!

Hello Everyone!

I'm having a quick sit down and cuppa before my BF comes round for tea. It was her birthday yesterday and whilst I sent her card in the post, I still have her present to give her. I haven't seen her for almost 3 weeks since we returned from my wedding, so it will be nice to catch up and look at the photo's.

Today I have two cards to show you. I used the same stamp set and same LO for both cards but as you will see, they are quite different themes. One is modern and funky, the other more vintage.

The first option...

...and the inside (decorated to match of course)

The second more vintage inspired option...

...and again with the matching interior.


CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla

Paper: Designer Series Melon Mambo (Brights)

Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Bliss(retired), Music Notes (Wheel)

Tools: SU Scallop Trim Border & Butterfly punches

Misc: SU Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones

Whilst I love both of these cards, my favourite has to be the brigh one! Which one is your favourite??!

There's a technique I have been wanting to try for ages now, so I though I'd give it a go on these cards. Bleach stamping! I stamped the scroll/swil stamp with bleach onto the peach parfait card and after it had dried you get the above result! Et Voila, customised backgound paper! I'll definately be doing this technique again!

Well I've got to dash and start getting the tea ready.

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Hi Vicky.

Just hopped over to see what you're up to and I'm intrigued by this bleach stamping! I'm going to have to give it a go!

The cards look fab! And I like the bright one too :-)

How do you clean the stamp after you use the bleach and it doesn't affect the stamp at all? It's a gorgeous technique.
