Chalkboard Technique Fall Card

There is something about the chalkboard technique on dark brown card stock rather than black that I like better. It looks warmer, and with fall right around the corner, I was in the mood to use the Season of Friendship stamp.

First, I stamped the tree with White Craft ink onto chocolate chip card stock cut with the Top Note Die. I added some leaves on the tree and along the ground with White Craft ink as well. Next, I used Stampin UP Pastels (chalks) in browns and oranges and yellows to color in the stamped image. After rubbing the excess chalk away with a dry tissue, your colored image is revealed.

I’m on a Victoria Crochet Trim kick lately. I did not think I would like it but ordered it on a whim and now I can’t stop using it! I wrapped the ribbon around the top note and added a sentiment from Whimsical Words stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla. I punched it out with the Curly Label Punch and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional. To highlight the edges, I took a sponge dauber in More Mustard ink (my dauber had a little shimmer paint residue on it, hence the sparkles).

The card base is More Mustard layered with Cajun Craze (a perfect fall color). I embossed the Cajun Craze with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder before adhering it to the card.

Tall Tales Animal Cards

Lately, I’ve been on a Designer Series Paper kick. Is it just me or are the DSP’s better than ever? Here, I used Tall Tales DSP as my main image, stamping only a sentiment and adding some embellishments for a quick general occasion card.

The base is Barely Banana, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. I layered the Tall Tales DSP with Chocolate Chip card stock to make it pop more. Across the front, I added a 1″ x 4″ strip of Chocolate Chip card stock and then wrapped 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon around the top layers.

The sentiment is from Whimsical Words (a Saleabration set) stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White. I punched that out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it onto Old Olive that I punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch. The brad is a 1/4″ Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brad from the Occasions Mini. I adhered the Scallop Circle to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

This is another version using the same ingredients as above, with a few changes. First, this card is A2 size, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The base is Close to Cocoa, layered with Tall Tales DSP and Chocolate Chip card stock.

Since the paper is so bright and busy, all I did was add a sentiment and embellishment to the front. I stamped “small wonder” from Whimsical Words in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White and then punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. I layered that onto a Rose Red Scallop Oval Punch and using the cropadile, added a Circle Rhinestone Brad in green to the “o” of wonder. That was then attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Happiness Always Beautiful Wings Butterfly Card

Remember Cottage Wall DSP? I forgot how much I liked it until I pulled it out last night and made this card. I also used another favorite thing of mine–the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half for a 4 1/4″ square card. I layered Cottage Wall DSP on Whisper White card stock and wrapped a piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the front.

Next, I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to die cut these cute little butterflies in Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stock. I layered them with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to the card. This pattern of DSP actually matches the smallest butterfly from the Sizzlet perfectly!

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Whimsical Words (Sale-a-Bration set free with $50 purchase) in Old Olive ink on Whisper White card stock. Then, I punched that out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto Rich Razzleberry punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. That’s attached to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
