Chalk Talk Alter Egos

Vintage Chalk Talk Card

 

When I received the Chalk Talk Bundle last month I immediately made the card below. My first impression of this set was that I needed to create chalkboard like cards to fit the name. I applied the embossing buddy with a heavy hand and then stamped the images in Whisper White Craft ink. With a sponge dauber, I sponged more Whisper White ink onto the Basic Black cardstock until it resembled a chalkboard. 

 

I adhered the stamped images to a card of Marina Mist and embellished with Basic Black Chevron Ribbon. An okay card but it really didn’t make my heart sing. And I sort of assumed that all the cards I made with this set would look very similar. Wrong!

 

Today I was in a softer, more classic mood and decided to see if I could create something completely different with the Chalk Talk Bundle. And I think I did. The card above uses Pistachio Pudding and Island Indigo with Very Vanilla as the neutral.

 

The card has two different prints from the Venetian Romance designer series paper package that coordinate with the cardstocks. I am so glad I bought this paper as it is definitely a favorite. Remember to include a package of it when you place your Buy 3, Get 1 Free order for designer series papers.

 

This time I stamped the larger tag image and added Crochet Trim and Natural Trim to the tag. I added a medium Pearl Basic to each corner including a pearl that is on top of the In Color Boutique Detail.

 

I think that the very different looks that I created with one stamp set show the versatility of Chalk Talk. Whether you want a traditional chalkboard look or a softer, almost vintage look, you can achieve both by changing up the colors and accessories and creating an alter ego for your card.
