Perfect Chalkboard


The chalkboard technique is all the rage these days, and it's super simple to create. One thing I love about the chalkboard technique is how a simple card can look so glamorous. In this card, I've just used one stamp and added a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon for a little embellishment. 

To create the chalkboard technique, do the following:
  1. Stamp your image in Whisper White Craft Ink or VersaMark Ink on Black Cardstock. 
  2. Heat emboss your image using Whisper White embossing powder. 
  3. Lightly Sponge Whisper White Craft Ink around the black cardstock to create a chalk powder effect. 
  4. Use the Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen to draw lines about 1/4" in to create a frame. 
  5. Layer your black cardstock on another color and add embellishments.   

The Sale-a-Bration 2013 Vintage Verses stamp set is perfect to use with the chalkboard technique and offers a variety of sentiments for all occasions.

Although you can no longer purchase the Sale-a-Bration exclusive stamp set, there are a variety of other stamp sets that are perfect for the chalkboard technique. Here are a few of my favorites.
