For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC410), we were to use a Chalkboard Technique. Apparently I didn’t read or follow all of the instructions. Oh well. I did use white ink on my black “chalkboard”, but I bypassed the embossing and smearing of the “chalk”.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs and the frame image and die cut around the sentiment are sneak peeks of some new stuff being released tomorrow.
I used the chickadee image and matching die for the little bird and the sentiment and antique label were stamped w/ the chalk ink and die cut. I used a labels 8 and rectangle dies for the panels behind the chickadee. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thank so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year!
Since I was gone for Christmas, I still had a few cards to mail when I returned. For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC369), I thought THIS picture had great colors for a Holiday card…red on the sides and white in the middle.
The images are from DRS Designs. For my Holiday card, I stamped, colored and cut out the French Horn. I had this leftover white bg that I had splattered w/ red so I punched the poinsettia three time across the top and embossed the bottom then attached it to a larger red panel. I stamped the greeting on either side and used a template and white gel pen to add the faux stitching down the sides. A little simple and didn’t take a huge amount of time.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!
