Chalk Talk

Are you ready to see the new Chalk Talk Bundle (item 132731/132730) in action? My friend Kathleen created this card recently for our Blue Mountain Stampers’ Weekend Retreat, and I had a lot of fun stamping it since I always enjoy Kathleen’s cards. (Kathleen was my demonstrator before I became a Demonstrator myself.)

This card has such a great vintage feel to it, doesn’t it? And I really like the way the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (item 130140)  is highlighted on this card, especially the little strip across the bottom. Are you wondering what pack of Designer Series Paper the Pistachio Pudding strip came from? Well it isn’t Designer Series Paper at all – So how did I create it for this card? It was so simple. I simply stamped the image from Chalk Talk on the piece of Pistachio Pudding card stock randomly and then added the small strips of Soho Subway Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of the stamped card stock. Isn’t that cool?

Sketched Birthday

Today’s card featuring the Sketched Birthday stamp set (item 130423/130426) is one I created for my TEAM meeting. Since this was our first monthly since the catalog launched we had a lot of fun playing with the new goodies and sharing.

I really love the new In Color 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim that I used on this card. It’s a lot of fun to work with and this years In Colors are sooo yummy. They remind me of summer or sorbet – how about you?

Can you tell that I used our Dazzling Details for the Sketched Birthday cupcake? I think its well worth the wait time it takes for it to dry since it gives a nice shimmer to the focal point.
