Chalk Board Technique Cards from My Stamp Class!

I love the chalk board technique. And although it's been around for a long time, it's still wow-ing both demonstrators and customers alike! This technique is so versatile. These are the cards my stamping friends are making this week.
 Pretty simple too. There are many videos out there you can check out. If I had a nice manicure, something to hold my camera, and wasn’t so nervous, I’d make one myself…someday.

1.   Lightly rub the Embossing Buddy over black card stock to clean off the card stock and matting it a bit with the chalk in the bag. Do this especially if you are going to emboss your image. Stops those little spots from showing up and gives your stamped image a clean area.
2.   I stamped images in White Craft Ink and left it that way. Didn’t emboss image with clear or white embossing powder, because I like the “real” look of the chalkboard. The craft ink is juicy so be careful not to smug the image. You can also use the Heat Tool to dry it faster.
3.   Then I dropped the embossing buddy a few times onto the black card stock to make some dust on my chalk board. Using a dryer sheet to pick up some of the ink left on your stamp and tapping it onto the black cardstock will give you the same look. Add a few lines, dashes, or designs around the image.
4.   Frame with your favorite card stock color and embellish your way!  
 All you need is White Craft Ink, an Embossing Buddy (or new dryer sheet), some Stampin’ Up! stamps and cardstock! Once you stamp the chalk board technique, let your creativity run wild!

Have fun!
