Chalk Talk Thank You

A Chalk Talk Thank You and Missed Opportunities

Chalk Talk Thank You

What happens when you create, and create, and you take pictures and you don’t share them?

This…

      … a Chalk Talk thank you card that includes great stuff that you can’t get anymore.

Big bummer!

All is not lost…lots of great stuff on this card that is still available…but it could be gone too eventually.

Moral of the story?

          …I’ll leave that up to you.

I love the Apothecary framelits I used to trim the layers of the tag.  And…BONUS…they’re still available!

Using only one color with a couple of neutrals is an easy way to get a unified look.  Score!

Coordinating pattern paper, cardstock and embossing powder in Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo – it’s like Color Coordination for Dummies.

Black always adds so much style and sophistication to a card even if it is a chalkboard.  I’m a fan of black.  I disagree that Orange is the New Black.  Sorry, Netflix.

I still love the chalkboard look.   How about you?  You can easily achieve this chalkboard technique by heat embossing on black cardstock.   Then rub white craft ink randomly across the black cardstock with a sponge for that chalky, just erased look.

Apparently, Stampin’ Up! does not feel the need to consult me before making product retirement decisions.

What’s up with that?

I can guarantee you that if they had asked me, I would have said you can’t retire these sweet open hearts from Hearts A Flutter or the Melon Mambo embossing powder until after I’ve walked on the moon.

Which is NEVER!

But the good news, I guess, is that amazing stamp sets and accessories retire so we can have more amazing stamp sets and accessories.

And we don’t all have to have back surgery from carrying around a catalog that weighs 500 pounds.

And more good news – the bakers twine is now available in seven new colors and the new thick baker’s twine is available in five colors.  Seven plus five equals twelve new options.  Check it out here.

      Thanks, Krystal! And Oh My Goodness, I just glanced at the article and saw that I said ‘ways 500 pounds’ instead of ‘weighs 500 pounds’. Funny! Sometimes my fingers don’t translate my thoughts correctly.
