Waltzingmouse Stamps

I'm posting a couple projects today!! The Head Moustress at WMS has a challenge to use the chalkboard technique and I made a card for my hubby... it's a little "girly" but, I know that boy can handle it-- after all we raised two girls!!

 
Yes, the man is getting pink ribbon and pearls!! Now, I may be showing my age... do you remember when the first men's pink/lavender shirts and ties came out? We bought Bill a sweater and challenged him, yes he wore it. HA...that's how it works at my house! It's a wonder he has survived three girls!! 
 
Images and sentiments are from WMS My Heart and the flourish is a "ditty" from WMS Vintage Labels 10. Papers are Basic Grey True Love, ribbon is from The Ribbon Carousel and pearls are a combination of SU and Pizzazaplenty!!
  
The next project is what I created for the WMS Blog Party--caught a virus and didn't get posted, but, I was influenced by the whole chalkboard technique in a different way, so I thought I would go ahead and post. Used WMS Woodgrain  and My Heart sets to make a candy basket and small card. Loved the Woodgrain image stamped in Versamark and embossed with white on black... added some red and pink.



Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Am loving all your creativity with the chalkboard technique! Your DH sounds like a good sport. My husband loves red, so any Valentine will have to be red in our house!

You are the chalkboard queen, Vickie :) Glad hubby can take the card - had to giggle at him being outnumbered in the house. Good for him for succumbing ;) Darling project with the woodgrain. Hoping hubby's shoulder is healing up well :)

Gorgeous card Vickie! Love the pink bow and the wonderful stamps you chose. Yes I remember the pink shirts, never got my guy to wear one though ,he said his 4 girls wore enough pink. Love your creative projects!

Love the backing paper and the way you've picked up the colours in the pearls. Love, love these sentiments!

And the project you made for the Blog Party is just super - great work.

Oh my goodness, you my dear have just put me over the edge with regards to getting the My Heart set. I had been resisting up until now. Love the woodgrain heart!! Your projects are beautiful.

Oh my heavens I LOVE the woodgrain in those colors! Looks like a little birch basket! The color combination looks amazing...especially the layered scalloped edges. Your card looks like you whittled it and I am NOT even kidding!! The heart stamped in the same color scheme...did I say it looked like you whittled it? TOTALLY not kidding I said!

And your chalkboard card is so sweet for the Mr. My DH Jason is getting used to being around 1 wife, 2 girls, and even a girl dog. He can handle a pink bow here and there. Such sweet pairings of sentiments on this one!

Claire said...

All gorgeous - love the addition of the pink bow on your first card...it really pulls it together beautifully.

Funnily enough I had a go at embossing the woodgrain in white on black cardstock last night. It's sat there waiting for me to do something with it!

Hi Vickie

The images and sentiments on your first card look very pretty in the chalkboard technique and I also like that pink bow as addition.
And the candy basket and card in the woodgrain look are also very beautiful, especially in connection with those colours.

Kind regards
Carola
