Chalkboard

We recently made lovely cards using the "chalkboard" technique and everyone loved it! It is so easy and fun. It is a great way to add color to your card!

For my example I stamped the Basic Black card stock using Whisper White Craft ink, it will look very similar to a chalkboard. While the ink is still tacky I used my Stampin' Pastels to color the flowers. It is so easy to blend the colors as much or as little as you like. Since all of the Stampin' Up colors coordinate I was able to use Rich Razzleberry card stock as the card base and use Rich Razzleberry from the pastels as the center of my flowers to tie it all together. This card was a hit!

All Stampin' Up supplies used:

  • Rich Razzleberry card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • Top Note for the BigShot
  • For all you do - stamp set
  • Stampin' Pastels
  • Decorative Label Punch
  • Four Frames - stamp set

  1. Good Question! When you are done with your card, you just wipe off any excess pastel powder and it does not smear!
