FabFri22: Chalk Talk

Hi stampers! Long time no see! I'm so sorry for not posting much lately. Life has been CRAZY! Between having two kids home all day everyday, wanting to make the most of summer, and getting ready for Stampin' Up convention next week, I just haven't had much time to stamp. I have been doing a little bit of stamping for my birthday card class tonight and a few swaps for convention (which I will post after convention). Be sure to check back soon to see all of those cards!

Well, it's Friday and time for another Fab Friday challenge- yay! We have a color challenge for you this week. Check it out!

I decided to do a birthday card for my design team card so that it could also be one of the cards for tonight's birthday card class. I think this is a great color combination for masculine cards. Here is my card...


Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Chalk Talk
Paper: Basic Gray, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Big Shot, Chalk Talk framelits, Houndstooth EF, Epic Day washi tape, small silver brads

I really like the Chalk Talk stamp set and matching framelits. I used three different framelits from the set on this card. The Real Red layer is the first. The Tempting Turquoise layer was made by using two of the top halves of the long, thin label. The stamped image was cut out using a third framelit. Another fun, new product I used it the diagonal striped washi tape in the background. If you have never tried using washi tape, give it a try. It is so easy to use and there are so many ways to use it. I especially love that it can be torn and that it is repositionable!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to play along with us this week at Fab Friday! I can't wait to see what you make.

Great when you can do double duty with a card isn't it? I like how you layered the different Chalk Talk framelits as a background for the image. Hope your swaps are coming along! =) TFS!


Very cool card!!! I love the layered sentiment panels!! And I always forget about this EF!! I must use that soon!! It was wonderful to meet you at convention, the whirlwind that it was!!
