Quick and fun

I made this quick card for my Stampers Club to show off the Chalkboarding technique. I absolutely LOVE this technique, I've decided. It meets all my "love" criteria...simple, quick, easy and cute. I used Pale Plum & Certainly Celery for my base card and Chocolate for the flower piece. I stamped the flower from the Live Your Dream SU set using White craft ink and then dabbed the chalk right onto the ink, you don't have to let it dry at all. Layer, add dimensionals, ticket punch and done!

At each club meeting I teach a new technique or card element and everyone has until the next club meeting to create their own card using what I taught. Those that do their "homework" and bring it to "class" (*lol*) get their name put into a jar and at the end of the meeting I draw one winner and they get some fun card-making goodies! So here are a few of the cards everyone made, aren't they just too cute!?! I adore my club gals and I SO look forward to each club meeting.

Jill love that chalkboard card. Way cute. Can you believe I don't have chalks? HUH?

There you go, enabling me again. Love your girls cards by the way! What a great idea to keep them stamping at home!
