Hello blogging friends! Today, I have two cards to share with you using a couple of the New Chalkboard Die and Stamp Sets from Tonic Studios. There are three sets in this collection -- Birthday Wishes, It’s Your Big Day, and Special Occasion. These sets are prefect for card making and all of your DIY projects.
Here is a look at the first card I designed. I used the 1099E It's Your Big Day Indulgence Chalkboard Die & Stamp Set and 485E Mixed Oval Layering from Tonic Studios. The card base in an A2 top folding card. I die cut the sentiment and decorative oval using white pearl shimmer paper and then I die cut the label and oval shape using black cardstock.
I rubbed a little White Pigment Ink on to the black label and then buffed off the excess ink with a paper towel. Doing this gives the black paper a chalkboard look. I used the Nuvo 203N Nuvo Glue Pen Medium to adhere the sentiment to the label shape. Then I used a couple of pieces of craft foam as backing for the label and decorative oval shape. I used the Nuvo 650N Crystal Drops Gloss - Ebony Black to embellish around the edges of the card. The crystal drops look similar to pearls or enamel dots.
To finish off the card I added a few Wild Orchid Craft Flowers.

Here is a look at the second card I designed. For this card I used 1098E Special Occasion Indulgence Chalkboard Die & Stamp Set and 484E Mixed Rectangles Layering Die Set. To start I stamped the sentiments twice on to white paper with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.
I fussy cut one set of the sentiments--the top and bottom pieces of the sentiment. Then I layered the pieces using Foam Squares. To add a bit of color I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to do a light watercolor wash and color the tiny images--heart, flower and butterfly. I layered the label shape on to the decorative vine label. I also used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens on the tiny vines. To embellish the card I added pink and aqua rhinestones.
I used the 484E Mixed Rectangles Layering Die Set to die cut a couple of layers of white, and aqua cardstock and then layered everything on to an A2 top folding card.
