Hey there and welcome to the October edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our October theme is a fun technique, Chalkboard!
I used the Merriest Moments Bundle to create two card with the Chalkboard Technique. First I cut & embossed the frame with Snowy White 12" x 12" specialty paper using the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.
I heat embossed the sentiment from Merriest Moments using white embossing powder and my Heat Tool. After heating, I cut it out with the rectangle die from the set (the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder name is a bit misleading, the package also contains dies) then added smudges of white craft ink using a Blending Brush to look like an old-fashioned chalkboard.
The poinsettia image is from Merriest Moments. I cut it and the gold bloom with more dies from the Merriest Frames pack. I finished it off with a Gilded Gem.
These little cuties are part of it too. I cut them from Cherry Cobbler card stock!
Inside I stamped another Merriest Moments sentiment with black ink.
For my second chalkboard creation, I used Blushing Bride for a softer color palette.
I used the same heat embossing method as with the first card, then added the chalkboard smudges again with white craft ink and a Blending Brush.
The Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder includes these pretty scattered "sparkles" when you emboss an entire layer of card stock.
I tied a few inches of Blushing Bride 3/8" Frayed Grosgrain in a pretty knot then wrapped the ends around the chalkboard layer.
Inside and out I added a few Elegant Gems in the Petal Pink color for some sparkle. I stamped the inside sentiment with Blushing Bride ink.
