Christmas Chalkboard

Back from my jolly hols just in time for a brand new challenge at Technique Time Tuesday and this one is bang on trend with the chalkboard technique.  Over at the blog you will find a step by step tutorial to help you if you've never tried this before, and it really is so simple and so effective.  You can do it two ways, one using a heat embossing technique and the other stamping white on black.  It depends which one you like best -bold and bright, or subtle and shabby.
Guess which one I've used here....

I chose a Christmas theme (again!) and used a variety of stamps to make up my board. I stamped in white and then smudged it up with sponged white ink- I used Adirondack Snow Cap. I've used some SU paper, with a gem in each corner and a couple of bows. I'm very plaesed with this card and, as I said already, it's very simple to make.


  1. You can NEVER have too many Christmas cards! ;) LOVE this beautiful card--the patterned background is fabulous--and the images and sentiment are perfect together! Hope you had a great vacay! HUGS and have a great rest of your week! :)

  2. Gorgeous Christmas card Louise! The stamps are fantastic and match the DSP perfectly! :)

  3. I agree Christmas cards are sooo much fun to make and even more fun to make in the summer :) Great job with this months technique!

  4. What a great idea! I would have never thought of making a Christmas Card with the Chalkboard technique! Great job!
