Graduation Card with Chalkboard Technique

Thank you to Melissa W. from Azle, Texas for sharing her fantastic graduation cards!  Each month I pose a challenge to my customers to use a specific product or technique and when they share their projects, they have an opportunity to become my Featured Stamper on either my blog or my Facebook page.

The challenge for this month was to create a card using the Chalkboard Technique and I think Melissa did a fantastic job!

Tips & Tricks:
  • To create this chalkboard effect, Melisssa stamped the images on black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
  • Next, using a sponge and Whisper White Craft Ink, she rubbed on the ink to create an 'erased' look behind the images.  Check out the Chalkboard Technique tutorial and give it a try!
  • Just a reminder to all my readers.  The NEW 2013 - 2014 Annual Catalog goes live this Friday, May 31st and you can begin placing your orders at 12 noon (Mountain time).
  • Even though Melissa used different retired stamps, this card can easily be created using the Pure Gumption set.  It is not retiring (yea!) and will be in the new catalog!  Be sure to take a look at the retiring products because once they're gone, they're gone!  You have until June 3rd to order from the retiring list.

Stamp Sets:  Pure Gumption  Inks:  Versamark Ink Pad  Paper:  Whisper White card stock, Black card stock, various other colors

Congratulations to Melissa for becoming the
Featured Stamper today!

Happy Stamping!
