First my stamping colleague Suzanne Delaware messaged me with the news, then I got a call from my card-making partner and sister-in-law, Sherry Pakulski and the message was the same; two of my cards appear on page 125 in the Spring 2016 issue of Take Ten.
I actually designed these cards for the layout challenge that appeared in Take Ten’s Winter 2015 issue. However, I’m happy that they were saved for this issue since they were chosen as a Spotlight feature for the Chalkboard Technique. This is really easy to do; just use white craft ink with a bold stamp on black card stock. The stamps from the Friendly Wishes set are perfect for this type of stamping.
The text says, ” Use white ink on a black background with your favorite stamps to create a cute chalkboard effect. Dry-emboss cardstock and vellum to add beautifully textured elements, and finish your design with plenty of pink patterned papers, flowers, and sweet little hearts.”
I love this layout, and have used it multiple times since making these cards. What colors, papers and elements would you use with this layout design?
