Chalkboard Technique …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

You don’t have to live in Wisconsin these days to feel the wrath of the weather … snow, freezing rain, and below zero temperatures are hitting over half our country!  WOW …


I thought this artwork was cute and it fits in with today’s card and technique share: Chalkboard Technique

What better way to say it’s cold outside than with snowflakes.  My club members will recognize this card because it is one of the two designs they made in November, when they learned the “Chalkboard” Technique.


Besides the black cardstock seen here, I also used Soft Sky.  I wanted something blue, but I didn’t want to over power the white and black.

I will share with you the steps it takes to create this card. I’ve been know to break down techniques to the most basic level or recreate them so they are simpler, and keeping it more fun to do!

1) Swipe the embossing buddy across your black cardstock to prevent stray embossing powder from sticking to unstamped areas.

2) Arrange your stamps in a desired pattern and stamp in White Craft or Versamark ink

3) Sprinkle white embossing powder over stamped areas, shake off excess and heat with embossing gun.

4) Add details (such as a border or other doodles) with chalk marker.

5) Rub embossing buddy in the corners and around sentiments to resemble chalk dust.


My clubs not only make 2 projects using the technique they’re learning, but create a “Technique Sheet!”  They are easily stored in a 6 x 6 scrapbook so they can refer to them when they want to recreate a technique.  It is my most popular club!  My members also receive the “hostess benefits” … free stamps and accessories!

If you and 5-7 of your friends want to get together and learn techniques … I will start one for you beginning in January.  Just email me at

If you haven’t noticed … I want to point out that I have used the same two stamp sets that I used on yesterday’s card … the Festive Flurry and Joy to the World stamp sets.  It’s great how you get a totally different look even when using the same stamp sets!

I love showing you different ways to use your stamp sets and accessories…  it makes them more cost effective for you!


Thanks so much for stopping by … I’ll have more for you tomorrow!
