As you probably noticed, there sure are a lot of new things in the Occasions Catalog. On pg. 25, everything is new! This past Saturday, our class focused on using the new Colorbox Chalk Inks along with the Chalkboard Paper. I never thought that chalkboards would be a thing of the past, but I think they are since those blasted white boards came out. Anyhow, I love the look of a chalkboard so it was pretty darned cool to play with the chalk ink pads and chalk paper. Here is one of the cards that we made this weekend:
The image is stamped using the Rose Coral Chalk Ink stamp pad, with the "celebrate" stamped using the White Craft pad. Both inks are heat set, which I think is important when using the chalk ink pads. Another important thing to remember is to make sure your ink pad is juicy so when you purchase the ink pad, be sure to purchase the reinker. We used Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and Big Day stamp set - both products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
