All Chalked up!!

Hi Friends,

Made few chalkboard projects for Mudra few weeks before, thought to share here.


Chalked Bookmarks , Chalked Notecards, Chalked Gift Tags :



Chalked Bookmarks:





  • Took black cs in 2.25"x6" and white heat embossed sentiments from Bookmarks stampset and Hot air ballon from Beachfun Stampset.
  • Then using tissue, buffed white pigment ink over the embossed and surrounding areas to give a chalkboard effect.
  • Bordered the panel with white colored pencil.
  • Went ahead and matted this over a white cs.
  • Then laminated this bookmark and added a black satin ribbon as final touch.
Chalked Notecards:





  • These are 3.5x3.75" notecards which i attempted to do Table art, by showcasing these on mini easels for a daily Inspirational kick at workspace :)
  • I took sentiments from FarewellDare to fly stampsets and white heat embossed it along with feathers from Dreamcatcher and chevron washi from Washis stampset.
  • Buffed white pigment ink over the embossed areas.
  • Highlighted panel by white colored pencil scorings.
  • Matted with White cardstock.
  • Laminated the panels to make sturdy.
Chalked Gift Tags:






  • Was hoarding these thick colored cardboard hearts for a long time now.
  • Went ahead and black gessoed it heavily.
  • White heat embossed the sentiments from Mixed Greetings stampset.
  • To add little extra detailing, stamped flourishes from Vintagey Florishes stampset around the sentiments.
  • Added natural linen ribbon and a teeny tiny ivory Raffia bow as final touch.

Hope you like these inspirations using Chalkboard technique.
