  2. Color parts of the flowers using Stampin’ Blends.
  3. Swipe Basic Black scrap paper using the Embossing Buddy. Stamp greeting from Dandelion Wishes using Versamark. Heat emboss using a heat tool and white embossing powder.  If desired, color in the greeting using Stampin’ Blends.
  4. Punch greeting using 1 ¾” circle punch. Punch a mat out of Melon Mambo card stock using 2” circle punch. Layer the two circles.
  5. Attach card front to Melon Mambo mat. Attach to Whisper White card front. Attach greeting to card front using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up to complete.

Starburst Sayings Chalkboard SignBoard

Starburst Sayings 003

Here's another Chalkboard Signboard card inspired by the Nacho Average Sketch Challenge #141.

I used images from retiring Starburst Sayings stamp set stamped in Yellow Citrus and Aquamarine ColorBox Chalk inks and cut them out using the coordinating Starburst Framelits and Big Shot. 

For best results using the Chalkboard inks, be sure to stamp on the smooth, "velvety" side of the chalkboard paper.  To create the sign board, start with a piece of card stock measuring 11" x 4 1/4" and score at 5 1/2".  Using a paper trimmer, cut 1/2" from each side and 1 1/2" up using a paper trimmer.

Another Thank You Chalk Board-Nacho Average Challenge #141

Check out our fun sketch this week over at the Nacho Average Challenge site!

Here's my contribution:

Another Thank You 011

For this card, I created a quick and easy chalkboard signboard.  To create the sign board, start with a piece of card stock measuring 11" x 4 1/4" and score at 5 1/2".  Using a paper trimmer, cut 1/2" from each side and 1 1/2" up using a paper trimmer.

The greeting is from Another Thank You and is stamped on a piece of Chalkboard Paper using Whisper White craft ink.  I drew lines around the edges of the chalkboard using a Chalk Pen.  I lightly sponged Whisper White craft ink along the edges to give it the chalkboard look.  The heart is punched from the Owl Builder Punch.  Tip: For best results using the Chalkboard inks, be sure to stamp on the smooth, "velvety" side of the chalkboard paper.

Here's the original sketch:
