TSG Blog Hop: Chalkboard Memories

Hello, Fellow Crafters – It is the final day of sneak peeks for There She Goes Clear Stamps. It has been a fabulous week of new sets and this last one is a goodie too!

Chalkboard Memories Blog Hop Challenge

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!

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.

There are some amazing sentiment stamps in this set – love the combination of fonts.  I used three different ones to create a set of big tags (each one is 6” tall).

I stamped each sentiment in Emboss It ink (Ranger) on black cardstock and heat set with white embossing powder.  Once cooled I added smudges to the cardstock using a white ink pad (Whisper White Craft from SU!).  Once dry I layered on ivory cardstock cut out with a postage stamp die from Spellbinders and then stitched the edges.

After covering each tag with designer paper from Prima; for embellishment I used ivory grosgrain ribbon, black twine, some alphabet twill, a button and a wood butterfly.  Once I had the design down they were quite quick to make. :)

And here are shots of each tag individually:
