by Sue Wisniewski

stamp credit:

Scarecrow EZMount stamp set (SI)


Household Bleach (grocery store)

paper towel (grocery store)

raffia (craft store)

small wooden craft buttons (craft store)

3M double stick tape

Mini glue dots



1.Fold a piece of paper towel into fourths and place it on a plastic plate. Pour bleach onto this paper towel pad.

2.Place your stamp into your homemade bleach ink pad. Make sure you have a good coverage of bleach onto your stamp.

3.Place your stamp with bleach onto colored cardstock and hold the stamp on the cardstock for a full 15 seconds. Remove stamp and watch the how the bleach reacts to the cardstock.

Tip: Bleach will damage stamp after time if not cleaned with mild soap & water after use of bleach. Different color cardstocks will bleach out differently so test bleach on all colors of cardstocks.

4.Cut bleached wheat image down to fit on left side of brown (4x5 ¼”) cardstock layer and tape to tan note card with double stick tape.

5.Tie a piece of raffia in a knot and add to right side of card with mini glue dots.

6.Add craft buttons to left side of note card with mini glue dots to finish the card.
