thank you - framed chalkboard - TWO video tutorials

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today.  Have you filled your shopping cart with MFT goodness? The Brand Spankin' New Release is available NOW, right HERE. The team is back today to show you some more ways to use the newest products available. I created two cards and a video for EACH. Keep reading so you don't miss anything. 

First up is the confetti thank you card. I have been asked for a tutorial on creating a flat shaker card, so I took this opportunity to get 'er done.

To learn how to create a flat shaker card, please click HERE to watch the video, or click play, below:

I used the gorgeous Fall Foliage Die-amics and Stamp Set for the leaf accents.

I used the Thank You Die-namics to create the word window and created a flat shaker using confetti made from the Peek-a-Boo Dots Die-namics. I stamped the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds along the bottom in Banana Split ink.

Up next is this fun framed chalkboard card made with Suzy Plantamura's new stamp set, Celebrate Life.

To watch a video of me making this card, please click HERE, or press play below.

I created the frame using Chalkboard Frame Builder, stamped with the woodgrain stamp from Western Backgrounds. I made a realistic chalkboard using Martha Stewart chalkboard paint (it takes 3 light coats, dried between coats). I love the sheen that the paint leaves behind. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white.

I used the Boy Meets Girl Die-namics along the top of the 3 X 4 Notepad Die-namics that was stamped with the lined paper stamp from Journal It - Take Note.

I stamped the large dots from Large Scale Backgrounds in Sweet Tooth ink along the Blu Raspberry card base.

Here is one more look at the cool chalkboard.  :)
