Chalkboard Technique with Fabulous Frame and Fillers

In today’s video, Melanie will demonstrate the chalkboard technique with her Fabulous Frame set. You can’t get much more minimal than the supplies needed for the chalkboard (or blackboard) technique, but the look is so fun! The Fabulous Frame is perfect for this technique with beautiful borders already drawn for you just like professional signage, and the Fabulous Frame Fillers allow you to add all those tiny, custom details in a flash! Be sure to clean your stamps after using pigment pads to get the ink out of the etching and preventing staining your other pads with pigment later. To make details pop and prevent smearing, you may choose to emboss your design with powder and a heat tool (or just use the heat tool to speed up drying)

If getting ink on the back of the card bothers you, fold the card before doing the top, then unfold when you are ready to begin stamping.

Melanie, Thank you for "demystifying" the chalkboard technique for me.  Great video. (Did you realize the sleeves of your top so perfectly complemented your project?)

This is so beautiful, Melanie! I love the vintage look of chalk board. I have not used white inks only, so this looks fun to try! Thank you for another tutorial and pretty thank you card!

You're welcome, Cindy!

Thanks, Annie!  Gina's white pad is really great!

Comment by Annie Nannie on January 6, 2015 at 2:30pm

I am amazed how the white ink shows up beautifully on black paper. I can't find a white that shows up and end up always embossing when I want white.

If you mean the 3D Kraft butterfly, that's an embellishment from Petaloo (listed on Youtube description)  Peel and stick!  Card needed something and Laurie Schmidlin sent me these beauties!  You could make one, though, from layering the two butterflies in that set on Kraft and cutting out :)

Yes, those new Gina K. dies should be in my hot little hands tomorrow! :D

Awesome card - how did you do the butterfly? Or can't you disclose that yet - saw the new dies in the email that Gina sent out - they will be a must have! Thanks for sharing!
