Chalkboard Technique

Stampin’ Up! On Stage

inviteI am so excited to be at OnStage in Salt Lake City for the release of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog for the 2016 to 2017 year!!  All I have to say is OMG!  I love love love so many of the new products that are coming out!  I will be placing my pre-order and able to share some of these great new products with you over the next few weeks!  One of the pesky issues with the Big Shot has been fixed!  Stay tuned!

Tonight is the Centre Stage Live event!  I am going with my friend Barbara Lash and looking forward to a fun night. 

Thank you to my team – both Stamping New England and the NEStampINKers and all of my Customers for allowing me to promote to Silver Elite and attend this fantastic event!!



And of course, what is convention without swaps?  Here is one of the swaps that I made to share with others.  This card uses the Watermelon Wonder Cardstock and inks with the Softly falling embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set and is stamped with white ink and embossed on Black cardstock to give the card the Chalkboard look.

I used a piece of Watermelon Wonder Lace to add a shabby chic look and one of the flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set.

I can’t wait to share more with you over the next couple of days!!


Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday

100_9106 copy   Today is Throwback Thursday so I thought that I would post from the Oh Hello Stamp set which is one of the retiring stamp sets. This card uses the Chalkboard technique on the black card stock.  The Oh Hello is stamped with White craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The flower to the left is stamped with the same White Craft ink but not embossed.  This shows the difference between using embossing powder vs. only using the white craft ink without embossing powder. The Apothecary Accents Framelits are used to cut out the image which is layered onto the Afternoon Tea Designer paper.  the card base is crumb cake. Have a great weekend! signature line-003
