The Card Concept Challenge #18 - Back to School

I've really been in the mood for making cards this week and I'm having fun finding new challenges to participate in. I was tempted by the Back to School theme over at The Card Concept when I saw this week's inspiration ...

 It was the chalkboard that got me and here is what I made ...

Lots of embossing and lots of fun to make.


Cardstock: PTI Kraft, Sweet Blush, Smokey Shadow
Stamps: PTI Beautiful Brushstrokes Sentiments,  Life is Beautiful, Live Love Life, Wet Paint II
Inks: Versamark
Dies: PTI Heart Prints, Beautiful Brushstrokes, Woodgrain Impression plate; Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Frames 4, Nesting Card Templates
Other: Zing embossing powders in White, Butter, Powder, Leaf


  1. Excellent chalkboard technique- mine always turns out messy looking! Thanks for joining us at the Card Concept!

  2. Great job on your chalkboard! I love textured background with it as well. Thanks for joining us this week at The Card Concept :)

  3. WOW....fabulous job creating this awesome 'chalkboard' with your flawlessly embossed images! The pink/kraft combo really showcases the chalkboard well. Great touch adding the two pink hearts. Thanks for sharing your card with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
