Thinking of You

For my Thinking of You card I used a stamp and powdered chalks sold by Stamp N Plus.  The sentiment can be found HERE X2090.  The powdered chalks are Chalk-Ah-Lots, which can be found HERE.  The colors I used were:  Blush, Nifty and Peach.

The oval was cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die and the butterfly was cut with a die by Marianne's Creatables.  Rhinestone jewels were used as embellishments along with a touch of Stickles on the edges of the wings.

I used a Staples brand of matte photo paper and applied the chalks with a sponge.  This paper has a felt-like texture and this quality combined with its bright white color provided a perfect media to bring out the vibrancy of these beautiful chalks.  Staples often has the paper for free when you submit a rebate form.  You can find the paper HERE.  The paper is cardstock weight and I have been using it as my "go to" white paper for stamping and cardmaking.

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great week.  Paulette


  1. The chalked background is beautifully blended. It looks fabulous as an oval next to that colour of card. The butterfly is a lovely contrast and looks so pretty with the background colours peeking through. Great design.
