Bodacious Chalk Board

Bodacious Chalk Board

I created this card to share with my Stampin Up demonstrators. We are meeting tomorrow for our monthly business meeting. We will be talking about Product Bundling.... we will also be making 3 technique ATC cards. One of the ATC cards showcases the Chalk Board technique, the card above was inspired by the ATC card. I am hoping to upload the ATC cards later this evening.

Chalkboard Technique Details:
Materials Needed: Whisper White Craft Ink, Stamps or Wheel, Stampin Pastels
Stamp image in Whisper White Craft ink, this is best when stamped on basic black or darker card stock. Do not allow ink to dry, begin applying chalk using a cotton ball or sponge dauber and a pouncing motion. (On my card, I went back after completing the technique and added some accent lines and dots to fill in the flowers using the white gel pen.

Card Details:
Stamp Sets: Bodacious Bouquet, Blossoms Abound
Cardstock: Vintage Violet, Bashful Blue, Marigold Morning, Whisper White
Other: Narrow White Organdy Ribbon, Apricot Grosgrain Ribbon, White Gel Pen.

The ovals were cut using the Coluzzle. I wish I had the Giga scalloped punches, hopefully I will have them in the next week or two. They seem to be sold out online, I am hoping to find them when I take my first adventure to Hobby Lobby in Casper. I have never been to one of these stores, I have heard some great things about them and hope to find some fun stuff to play with.
Demonstrator Training... If anyone is interested in the notes from demonstrator training about bundling product, please post your email address and I will be happy to send you the information.

Awesome Bodacious card! Love that technique - going to have to try that today. Could you send me the information on product bundling. If cable companies can do it, why can't we? Sounds very interesting and I'm always looking out for things to improve my business as well as those of my downline. Email me at and send me your mailing address as well for a lil' goody! Thanks so much, wendi

Hi Kyla, can I be like you when I grow up? LOL - Beautiful as usual!
And yes please would love your Bundling Products notes. In Australia, we dont have a lot of items you can buy in singles eg: cardstock, reinkers, markers, but hopefully it will change with the next catty and I can put some bundles together!
