Is Chalkboard Still Trendy?
If you follow Pinterest at all, I think it’s safe to say that chalkboard is still around and going strong.
In fact I’ve only seen a rise in chalkboard products! What’s even more exciting is the Chalkboard Paper that Stampin’ Up! carries in the Spring Occasions Catalog.
The Chalkboard Paper comes in 6 x 12 sheets and 10 per package.
There are so many great projects you can do with this Chalkboard Paper. The card above used a very small piece of Chalkboard Paper and I die cut a small banner. I love how the Best Day Ever stamp set fit perfectly on my banner.
There are a couple of different inks you could use for this project and achieve a few different looks. I used one of my all time favorite inks Whisper White Craft Ink. Craft ink is a pigment ink which means it takes a little time to dry. This can be great if you want to emboss. Since the ink dries slow you can put embossing powder over the ink and heat. My favorite part of Craft Ink is the beautiful way it dries. It has a soft finish which I love.
If you are low on patience (just speaking for myself) then take your heat tool and this will make that
As you can see above, the Whisper White Ink left a nice muted tone from the stamped image.
Another ink choice you can use is the Color Box Chalk Inks. These dry quickly, give a soft look but still bright. Stampin’ Up! has three colors available.
A couple things to note when using these inks:
I highly recommend having the re-inker on hand as the pads can dry out faster.
If you are using photopolymer stamps, be advised they will stain your stamps.
What is your favorite ColorBox Chalk Color? Can you guess mine?
I used the Best Day Ever stamp set which is a favorite of mine from the Sale-a-Bration selection. I love those little triangles and they are perfect to create a fun background.
The tiny flower and doily come from the Artisan Embellishment Kit. Great kit if you love to embellish your projects with pretties. This kit has tons of great trinkets in it.
