Chalkboard Memories with TSG...


Jessica and Tobi have been hard at work creating an AMAZING new set for us, Chalkboard Memories. If you are familiar with the VERY popular Chalkboard Technique, this set was created for that particular style!! It is full of SUPER cute images, and FABULOUS sayings…and the chalkboard itself? Fantastic!



supplies: There She Goes (Chalkboard Memories), Basic Grey  (Fact/Fiction), Doodlebug flowers

I stamped the image on vellum and embossed with white EP. Next I inked the vellum with black soot distress ink and dabbed white pigment ink over the sentiment. The vellum gives it a nice chalky appearance.

Notice the chalk :) I rolled a piece of paper to create a piece of chalk. 

Chalkboard Memories is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 18 stamps and will sell for $18.00 . The new stamps will be available on Saturday, April 27th at 11pm.

Would you like to win the new stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, April 27th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

So cute! Looking at your card makes me think I'm looking at a [wallpapered] wall with a chair rail and wainscoting. Not sure if that's what you were going for or just a coincidence, but either way, I love it!
