Last week I ran a class at my house in which we used the new Chalk Ink Pads from Stampin Up.
The first card was cased from Inking Idaho and Michelle Last. The base of the card was cut out of Basic Black Card Stock and strips of Baked Brown Sugar which had been stamped with the Hardwood Stamp were layered on top. The Sentiment is from the Saleabration Big Day Stamp Set.
The Bow Builder Punch and the Heart Itty Bitty Punch were used for the decorative elements.
I embossed the Crumb Cake Base in the second two cards with the Large Dots Embossing Folder.
We sponged Rose Ink from one of the Chalk Pads on the card on the left and So Saffron and Crushed Curry on the card on the right. We used the Saleabration Irresistably Yours Paper which is actually the thickness of Cardstock. The flower and leaves are from the Bouquet Bigz L Die from the Spring/ Summer Catalogue.The sentiments are from the Simply Wonderful Saleabration Set and the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.
I used the very poular Saleabration Lotus Blossom Stamp Set for the last two cards.
The two sentiments come from the same stamp set.
The colours used are Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive , Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral. The card base on the right was embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.
