Chalkboard challenge inspiration plus more ideas!!

Hello Everyone!!

Manu here and I hope you are loving all the DT inspirations for the current challenge which is all about Chalkboard!!! Read about the challenge here!


I have a few projects today, lets start with the ones which comply with the challenge!

Project 1.

Here are the instructions to make the card
1. Take a A2 size card panel and heat emboss the blooms with the white ranger embossing powder. 
2. Take the sentiment from the love stamp set and heat set with the white embossing powder.
3. I colored the blooms with Acrylic colors, since none of the inks were making a visible good color impression. 
4. Add the sequins from Mudra (I love them) and finish off the card by mounting it on an A2 size card panel.

Project 2:

To make this card.
1. Take an A2 size panel and stamp the ninja stamp from the Ninja stamp set and heat set!
2. Stamp the quote and heat set it.
3. Make a few add-on with a white gel pen to make the card a little realistic !
4. Mount the panel to an A2 size card !

Project 3.

I totally loved the Ninja stamp set!! Why not some colourful Ninja's !! 

Here are the instructions to make the card
1. Take a cardstock panel and make a ninja outline by masking! I stamped them up multiple times by masking and then to make them stand out, made the boundary of the Ninja's. Fussy cut the outline and mount it onto a cardstock with the Quote stamped.
2. Make the shaker panel frame and insert the OHP sheet in the middle, don't forget to add the sequins!! 
3. Mount the card to an A2 size card!

Here are a few more closeup's!

Project 4:

I love making baby albums and an integral part is documenting the pregnancy journey!! Here's how I incorporated the pregnancy stamp set in one of my albums!

Project 5:

My most loved alpha set !!! Totally loved making the background in this card!! This stamp set is very very versatile! It will make for super nice background for the cards as well as work as the eye catching alpha on the card!

Here are the instructions to make the card

1. Take an A2 size panel and stamp and take the L O V E alpha's from the alphabet set. Stamp them onto the cardstock to make a background!
2. Color the blooms and fussy cut them.
3. Arrange them in co-ordination on the panel. Mount the panel onto a A2 size card.
Here's another shot of the card!
