Technique Tuesday & Weekly Deals

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So … How did you like the “Glitter Paper” technique yesterday?  So simple, and so pretty!  Well that brings me to my exciting announcement…  I am featuring a “technique” each Tuesday!  Yep, Technique Tuesday and it begins today with the wonderful “Chalkboard” technique!

I also have the weekly deals for you … and are they great!  I have them all, so look forward to seeing some projects made with a few of these items!

Today’s card share is simple to do, and looks so nostalgic with the Chalkboard Technique.  I have chosen “Another Great Year” stamp set as my featured set today.

BIRTHDAY

I have seen several ways to do this technique … here is my take on it.  Simply begin with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and wipe your embossing buddy across it.  This will help keep the stray embossing powder off your card and gives you the appearance as if you just wiped off a chalk board!  At least you don’t have to clean the erasers!  Ooops … showing my age again!

Next, ink up your desired image with the white CRAFT ink.  I like to flip my stamps so the rubber is up when inking … it gives you much more control and you can see how exactly where you are placing the ink.

Stamp image onto black cardstock…. Sprinkle the White embossing powder over your inked area, tap off excess, and emboss with heat gun.

Now you can add some designs, or color in parts of the image with our fabulous “Stampin’ Chalk Marker”.  It was meant for this technique and is fun and easy to use.  Here I highlighted part of the banner and added a simple border around the card.

You can use this technique alone as your focal point as I did today, or frame it with one of our beautiful designer series papers – that would really make it pop!  My technique clubs made Christmas cards using this technique, so feel free to experiment … and have fun.

The Chalkboard technique is really hot right now … just take a look around, you’ll be surprised  at how many different places you will find it.

Thanks for visiting me today ~
