I loooooove chalkboard crafts.....

For this weeks project for The Cutting Cafe,  I used the FUN WITH HEARTS.....PRINTABLE SET.


Here is a Sneak Peek

                 HEARTS           HEARTS1

This FUN WITH HEARTS printable stamp set features 48 images...there are 23 different hearts...each are approx. 2.5 by 2.5 inches and 1 inch....also there are 2 wings...large and small to work with the 2 different size hearts.

I used my newest favorite toy.....my Silhouette Cameo.  The print and cut feature is so much fun. All I want to do right now is Print and Cut!......  And The Cutting Cafe has tons of sets I can't wait to try.

Three things I like are hearts, polka dots and flowers.  When I saw this set, I knew I would use it for my Valentine's Day projects.  How could I pass it up, three of my favs in the same set.  Whooo Hooooo!   I knew that I wanted to make a card and I really like all the chalkboard crafts that you see on Pinterest and craft blogs, so I put the two together and came up with this.  Hope you enjoy!!

Here is the heart with flowers.......


And here is the heart with polka dots.
 
To get the chalkboard look I used black cardstock, white stamp pad and a white watercolor pencil.  Embellished with red ribbon and a button slide from Stampin' Up!

  8. Thanks so much....
    Audrey, I just used plain black cardstock from Hobby Lobby. I used a white watercolor pencil and a white pad...I forget the brand of the pad. It's really really easy.
