New Product Sneak Peak

June 27, 2013

I am so in love with the products from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue which will be released on the 1st July.  I have had a box of goodies sitting on the floor in my work room for about 2 weeks.  I have had some of the things out to play but haven’t shared anything with you yet.  This is the first and I think it is so darn cute.  I found a card on Pinterest and followed it back to Gail Emmons blog where she had a tutorial for creating the Blackboard card.  I did vary the measurements to fit a standard Aussie card.

062I created the blackboard in Basic Black card (obvious isn’t it).  I stamped the Woodgrain Background stamp onto Soft Suede Card and cut the strips to frame the “blackboard” on the front of the card.  I stamped the image from Sketched Birthday using Versamark ink and embossed it in Whisper White.  Then I used a clean cloth dabbed into my Whisper White Craft Pad to add a little “chalk” around the image. I attached a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine across the top of the blackboard using a Glue Dot on each end.   I stamped the balloons from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card twice each using Real Red, Pacific Point and Old Olive.  I cut the balloons out and attached them over the ends of the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I stamped the party hat, also from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive, Pacific Point and Real Red ink and cut them out.  They are attached to the Baker’s Twine using a Glue Dot063 I tied two lengths of Whisper White Baker’s Twine into bows and attached them over the balloons using Glue Dots.  Lastly I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sketched Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut it using the largest Bitty Framelit.  The greeting is again attached to the card front using Glue Dots.

Isn’t this just the cutest card?  Thanks so much for the inspiration Gail.  I am going to have to try this technique again.  So much fun.

Don’t forget to keep you eye out for the new catalogue release so you can purchase this great stamp set from my online store.

Bye for now, Kris.
