Chalkboard Birthday

I hope you are enjoying this release! Isn't it fun? Today's set is a fabulous one called Chalkboard Birthday! What a fabulous set, not only for getting gorgeous results using the chalkboard technique but there are so many fun embellishment elements in this set that you can use it on just about anything. For my first card I did lots of white heat embossing for that chalkboard look. Everything except the flower is from the new set. The flower is from Little Flowers and the mat is Fancy Labels I die. The paper is again from the digital paper packs for this month.

For my second card I used one of the digital printables for my sentiment, digital paper and added some heat embossed flourishes to the sides on another die cut Fancy Labels I die. If you trim off the little bump you get a whole different look! The two border stamps on the top and bottom are from Chalkboard Birthday. I finished it off by adding a bit of ribbon tied in a bow and some little leaves and roses. This is a fabulous set that you must add to your stamping stash.

Wow, I sure do love your blue/black color scheme on the first card. Love how you used the die cut sideways, too! And the second card is excellent with all the elements you've added! Beautiful job, Leah!
