Chalked Up Valentines

Yesterday I needed a distraction so I decided to play with my Taylored Expressions goodies and use the chalkboard technique.  I made a few Valentines and I'm super happy with how they turned out.

The stamp I used for both cards is called Graphic Greetings Valentine & I stamped it with white pigment ink then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Once the embossing was dry, I used a sponge to smear some white pigment ink on the image for the chalkboard look.  The adorable little tag on my first card is from the Designer Mini Tags die cut set and the I used the Heart Cutting Plate on both cards ~ love the look of that!  Oh and the pattern paper is Love Letters from Bo Bunny.

... and my second card ~ a chalkboard heart!

Thanks for buzzing by today ~
hope your day is filled with love and happy thoughts!
