Breezing around the net, looking at weddings, cafe’s sign, and crafty places one thing you see are a lot of are chalk boards and signage. It is on “trend” as they say and so will you be when you apply this technique to your cards and scrap booking layouts.
How do I do that you ask? Well we are bringing you how to create with the Chalkboard and Shadow Techniques.
We have used the “Carousel Birthday” Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I have posted other cards here, using this versatile stamp but I think these Techniques really compliment the stamps well. The fun of the carnival in town, before television and the internet exploded our sense, was a much longed for event, well reflected in this stamp set. Nostalgia abounds. Even my granddaughter has a tiny carousel in her toy collection!
We are consistent in making sure that each step in the card making is photographed and fully described for easy following. With ease of use on our minds for you we have decided to separate the measurements under imperial and metric headings to make it easier for you to follow in all the far flung lands.
As always you are invited to use these techniques for class or just for yourself. Everything you need is written down for you. Just supply the paper, inks and stamps and get creating!
Enjoy, there’s no time like the present, get your copy now!
Happy Creating! Naomi.
It’s often funny how we can fall in love with a stamp set.
The only reason I purchased this set was because we had decided to use it as our featured stamp set in the March Technique Treats that will feature Chalkboard Techniques.
I would have to admit it wasn’t a “must have” in the catalogue.
And Laugh out Loud I have used it consistently for the last 4 weeks. and to day’s card is just another example.
I have been making cards for this little miss since she was born for a friend and what did she say when her Nan asked her what she wanted for her birthday? Just my card Nanny, just my card.
She has a toy Carousel and lives near the Wheel of Brisbane and loves Cup Cakes. So I think I hit all the bases. Nan tells me that the big grin and Whee!! was testimony enough.
I stamped the wheel on the Cupcake and Carousel DSP. I stamped the cup cakes, the basket and cloud from the Lift me Up Stamp Set, on Whisper White and coloured them in with the Watercolor Pencils. Then used the Up and Away Thinlit die to cut them out. The clouds were from the same thinlits. Love how these two compliment one another.
Sentiments inside were stamped in Tuxedo Black as was the horse. I used the Oval Stitched framelits Die after I had coloured the horse and then just gently coloured the edges.
The birthday sentiment was stamped in Blushing Bride.
That’s it for today.
Happy Stamping Naomi
