Hi Stampers. I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. I’m happy to see you back! Today I will be showing how to do the chalkboard technique, using the Daisy Lane stamp set bundle. This is a beautiful technique that I haven’t seen a lot of lately. Stampin’ Up! recently released some amazing Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder – it sparkles!!
I started with a Coastal Cabana card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. To do the “chalkboard” technique, I used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic Black CS (rubbed with the embossing buddy to avoid static). I also have a 6″ x 3″ piece of Coastal Cabana CS (also rubbed with the embossing buddy) and a 2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Using Versamark ink, I stamped the large daisy twice on the 3″ x 6″ piece of Coastal Cabana. Next, I used the new Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to sprinkle over the top of the Versamark. I then tapped off the excess and used my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder. The small daisies are stamped in Coastal Cabana ink onto the Whisper White 2″ x 4″ strip of Whisper White. They are then punched out with their coordinating punches.
Onto the Basic Black layer I stamped the Friend sentiment in the lower right corner and the smaller daisy twice on the left side of the layer (leaving room for the punched daisies to be placed between them. Again, I used the Versamark ink, Shimmer White Embossing Powder and my heat tool on the daisies and sentiment. Next, using a ruler and my White Stampin’ Chalk Marker, I drew a line around the edge of the card, measuring in approximately 1/4″. I just love using my 12″ clear Tim Holtz design ruler to do this.
The two large daisies are adhered on top of each other using a glue dot (off setting the petals) and the two smaller daisies are adhered on top of each other using a glue dot (off setting the petals). Next, the two were layered onto of each other using mini glue dots. They are then adhered between the two daisies on the Basic Black layer. The flower is finished off by adding a Clear Faceted Gem to the center. Using paper snips I trimmed off the daisy petals that where hanging over the edge of the Basic Black layer. (This is easy to do if you cut from the back side before adhering the layer to the card front). Using snail adhesive, the Basic Black layer is then adhered to the card front.
Decorating the interior of the card:
For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Using Coastal Cabana ink, I stamped the daisy in the upper right and lower left corner of the layer (letting the daisy hang off of the edge) and the sentiment in the center. The inside layer is adhered using snail adhesive.
