A Trio of Blackboard Technique Cards

This is the card I made at a recent workshop.  A bit of blackboard technique which seems to be the rage at the moment.  Using lots of Sale-A-Bration products so the ladies could have a proper play with all the new goodies. 

For the one above I used Bloomin' Marvelous.

This one uses Pennant Parade words, Hearts A Flutter and Vintage Verses.

A different direction and Feeling Sentimental with Vintage Verses on this one.  I also showed how you could bling it up by popping the little Pretty Petites on Dimensionals and adding Basic Rhinestones

Once I had shown the ladies how to make the card using an Embossing Buddy to get that chalky look on the blackboard they were left to make up their card using any of the stamp sets.  The results were amazing.  Some preferred crisp and clean so didn't chalk and each card was completely different. 

The banners were made from Sycamore Street Designer Papers and cut out with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits.  Island Indigo Bakers Twine bows attached with mini glue dots finish off the banner effect. 

I came downstairs today to the smell of cooking.  Wondering what was going on I went into the kitchen to find my Daughter and her Granny making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday.  Did you know it was pancake day?  I would have taken a photo but they were so yum they disappeared too fast. 

Happy Pancake Day everyone. x

All of these are lovely and what a great idea to put the supplies out there and let everyone do their own thing. I always love to see what others can come up with. Great inspiration!
