Chalboard Cards

Chalkboard Cards

Last night, we had our monthly stamp club, so I wanted to share the three cards we made.  The theme was “Chalkboard”, and Sharon lead us in several techniques we could do to mimic the look of a chalkboard.

This first card was done by using a Staz-on opaque white stamp pad.  After we stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the oval punch, we used a white pen to draw the outline on the black rectangle.  A sponge rubbed across the Staz-On pad and then on the “chalkboard” to simulate erased chalk.

The second card was stamped with white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  We used a stippling brush to get the erased chalk effect on this one.

On this final card, we again stamped and embossed in white, then we used a finger dabber to dab some white pigment ink on the black.

I love stamp club because I always learn so much from Sharon.  She’s a fabulous Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, and she always brings great quality projects for us to do in class.  If you are in the Dallas area, you should join us some time – I’m betting you’ll like it a lot, too.
