My Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer Top 10 – No.7 Chalkboard Paper and ColorBox Chalk Ink

Stampin’ Up! Chalkboard Paper and ColorBox Chalk Inks

Hi, I’m back with No. 7 from my Stampin’ Up! ® Spring/Summer  Catalogue Top 10! Today’s projects are all made using the fabulous new Chalkboard Paper and ColorBox Chalk Inks. There are 3 colours available in the inks: Citrus Yellow, Aquamarine and Rose Coral.

There is a smooth side to the Chalkboard paper which is for stamping with the ColorBox Chalk Inks. The results are a lovely muted chalky effect. The other more slightly coarses side of the Chalkboard paper is ideal for stamping with the Stampin’ White Craft Ink.

I made this card using the Big Day! stamp set, which you can choose as one of the free Sale-a-bration gifts with a £45 order.

Don’t think the ColorBox Chalk inks can only be used with the Chalkboard paper. I teamed them up with velum and Whsiper White card stock. You get a completely different look – the colours are strong and vibrant.

This is a “tongue-in-cheek” card for my sons to give their grandfather. He’s really not into birthday cards but he’s getting one anyway! I used the Hooray It’s Your Day set again – No. 3 in my list from the Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue

My Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer Top 10 – No. 6 Mini Treat Bag Thinlits

Good morning everyone – I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already! Time is flying isn’t it? After a slight blip, I’m back with my Stampin’ Up! ® Spring/Summer Top 10. Today’s projects are using No. 6 in the list, the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. I love this set. It’s going to be so versatile. I’ve already seen pins on Pinterest where other demonstrators have created gusseted (I think that’s the right term) sides, to make the little bags a bit roomier, so I’ll be checking those out properly soon and giving it a go too.

In the meantime here’s a few little treat bags I came up with. I hope you like them.

The Perpetual Birthday Calendar Photopolymer stamp set is ideal for decorating these little bags.

I used the brown packing paper that comes in the boxes with Stampin’ Up! orders to make this bag. Needless to say, I have plently of the stuff around, so will be making more of these for sure.

I kept this one empty so you could see the subtle stampin in Blushing Bride ink. The 1 1/4″ (3.2cm) White Jute Ribbon is becoming a firm favourite, considering I’m not usually that fussed with ribbon. Also the Butterflies Thinlits are kind of obligatory for me :-).

I couldn’t resist a Valentine’s version. As I said, it’s such a versatile set. All the shapes were cut using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.
