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.
Just maybe as you look at this card you may think its not such a ‘cute baby card’ but this young lady is well and truly off and running!! Baby gone!! Besides I think it’s more what Mum and Dad might like really and in this case Nan and Pop as well. Inside has cuteness!
Or maybe it was me. I wanted to play with the Chalkboard paper and ColorBox© Chalk Rose Coral Ink I received recently, as well as the Big Day Stamp set which is one of the free sets in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I chose the lovely tulips from the Painted Blooms DSP as my background. One of my favorite flowers as it was my Granddads delight to grow them every year in Tasmania.
I first inked up the largest stamp with Brilliance Moonlight White and hand colored over that on the “Celebrate” in Coastal Cabana with the Stampin’Write pen. Stamped on to Chalkboard paper and heat set. A new addition to Stampin’up! Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I lined up the cake after inking with the Rose chalk. Heat dried that then added the candle, again I inked with the Brilliance then some Daffodil Delight that gave a subtle yellow. Heat dried again. I think using these inks have given the desired chalky effect. I quickly cut out the image, rounded the corners and mounted it onto some Blushing Bride.
The rest of the sentiment was stamped with the coral chalk and punched out with the oval punch before backing with Blushing Bride card stock. I mounted both pieces with some dimensionals onto the DSP that had been glued to a Blushing Bride Note Card , added a Bakers Twine bow and card complete. OH! Just a pearl on the end of the Ice cream ! Who doesn’t love Ice cream.
Bye till next time.
Thanks for stopping bye.
This was my afternoon project.
Its surprising how we experience time. When I’m creating time seems not to exist until I glance at the clock or hear husband come home and realise I have happily played for hours. Then there are those milestones in life that you perceived would be a looong time coming when all of a sudden you find yourself there. Bevans 70th is like the latter. Seems just yesterday that we were celebrating his 50th with a big bash in Tasmania. Now it’s a big 70.
Yes I know, bit late to be sending out invites but friends and family are in the know about the EVENT and this is just the formality. Those that know me well are aware that I am the proverbial procrastinator so I haven’t done to bad. All created, printed and sealed ready for today’s post.
They were created with Publisher, kind thanks to http://www.pptbackgrounds.net/
for the background, couple of free clipart with the borders and end filigrees from Cornucopia of Ornaments three Font.
Till next time. Take care.
