Inspired By Stamping March Blog Hop


For this month blog hop, we are challenging you to make a card using the chalkboard technique.  I can see why this technique has gone cyber-crazy!  It is such a fun, super easy technique, with just outstanding results!

While most stampers use black card stock, I saw over on Pinterest using colored paper.  Well, Pinterest comes through again because I think colored paper works quite awesome.  I used the IBS stamps, Pirates, along with the beautiful Colonial Rose satin ribbon;   I love the way this looks like a ghost ship.

I made a little tutorial on this technique [so you don't have to go hunting]:

Stamp - emboss - sponge white ink over the top

I hope you give this a try and play in the Inspired By Stamping Challenge. The winner will receive a $25 gift card to the Inspired By Stamping store. And yes, you can use any stamps you want for this challenge.


Thanks for stopping by~
