Chalkboard Cards Technique | SSS February Card Kit 2020 | Window Frames

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all having a fabulous day! I created a few cards with Simon Says Stamp’s February Card Kit! It’s called Window Frames, and I decided to focus on one technique–chalkboard cards! I love creating chalkboard cards because the images really look fabulous on the black card stock, and it involves colored pencils–my favorite art medium.


Card #1: Balloon Window Frame

On my first card I used my favorite frame from the stamp set! All the balloons are so darling! I planned on heat embossing the images with white embossing powder, but it’s easier to color in the image without the raised embossed lines getting in the way. So, I used Unicorn White pigment ink to stamp the image first.

I decided to color them in with all the rainbow colors. I used three colored pencils on each balloon to give them depth. I used some polychromos colored pencils, and I used many layers so the colors would really pop off of this black card stock. After my coloring was done, I then re-stamped the images with embossing ink, poured over the white embossing powder, and melted it with my heat tool. In the shaker pouches I used some Moonstone Chunky Glitter form Arteza–I wanted the glitter to have more shine than color, so it wouldn’t compete with the balloons.


Card #2: Heart Frame Card

I stamped out the heart frame using more Unicorn White pigment ink. I was having trouble coloring in the hearts because I couldn’t see where the hearts stopped and the frame began. To help this situation I drew in some lines around the rectangle. I used a #10 Gelly Roll pen and a ruler to do this. Then I colored in the hearts with red and pink polychromos pencils and a white Prismacolor pencil–the white Prismacolor pencil is better than the polychromos white pencil in my opinion. After all my coloring was done, I again embossed the image with white embossing powder.


Card #3: Flower Frame Thank You Card

I selectively stamped out the flower frame for this card. I wanted the frame to be on the edges on my A2 sized card. This is easy to do if you have a stamp positioner like the Misti. I stamped out one side, flipped over the paper, and stamped the other side. Again for this card I stamped first using white pigment ink, colored in my images, and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. My very last step was to dot my card with white Nuvo drops–this added a  little lightness to the card.
