Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Kimberly asked: "I am trying to do the stamped bleach effect with my cardstock, but I am having a problem with it. The bleach is not lightening out the paper. Is there a certain type of bleach or paper that needs to be used? Thanks for you help."
A: If the bleach is older, it might not work so well. Also, bleach reacts differently on different cardstock. Stamp on a few different cardstock pieces and check if it's just the paper you chose that doesn't work. If you don't get a good bleaching effect on any of the cardstock pieces, it's time for new bleach.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Janet has a suggestion for the stapled ribbon tutorial: "If you staple under the fold the staples will not show and give your project a neater appearance"
