Hearts A Flutter With Chalkboard Technique

UPDATE: Best of 25 Years Stamp Club By Mail

I've had several people comment that they didn't want to make the commitment to the "Best of…" stamp sets because they were afraid that they either wouldn't like the set, or that they would have too many duplicate images from the sets.  In light of that, I've updated my club information to read that you can substitute the set of the month with one of equal value ($14.95), or pay the difference if you select one of greater value.

Hi Stamping Friends!

My January Too Cool Demo event was a shoebox swap and Michelle Hoover brought a super-fun and super-easy technique for our team to try!

Our card project was a direct CASE from Becky Roberts and she has several amazing projects with the Chalkboard Technique on her Inking Idaho blog

The Chalkboard Technique is really very easy!

  1. Stamp with White Craft Ink onto Basic Black, then heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.
  2. Use a soft cloth to rub White Craft Ink directly onto the background. 
  3. Use a White Colored Pencil to add a drawn border.

On our cards, Michelle had us use the sentiment from Delightful Dozen.  Looking at the project now, I think I would have rubbed on even more "chalk."  I must have had some children stay after to clean my chalkboard after school last night, because it's just not dirty enough to suit me right now!

The chalkboard is framed with Pool Party card stock, texture embossed with the Framed Tulips Folder and adhered onto a Primrose Petals card front.

It's also decorated with a lovely banner created with the parts and pieces from the Hearts A Flutter stamps and Framelits Bundle and the More Amore Designer Series Paper.  

Here we can see a Small Heart Punch from Silver Glimmer Paper, and a Tiny Tags sentiment on a Jewelry Tags Punch that's attached with a Silver Brad.

This side of the banner shows more Hearts A Flutter stamps and More Amore paper die-cut with the matching framelits.  All of the banners are "hanging" from White Baker's Twine.  See my Hearts A Flutter banner post for tips.
