The Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Chalk Talk

I am thrilled to be joining in the Stamp Review Crew's Blog Hops for the first time today!  I am honored to be part of this fabulous group and hope to be a regular part of the hops on the first and third Monday each month. Today, we're showing off one of my favorite stamp sets: Chalk Talk.

This set perfect for so many occasions and it's made even better by having a coordinating set of Framelits to cut out the images. It also contains one of my favorite greetings in all of our stamps sets which I used on this card:
Colors: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, & Crisp Cantaloupe. Stamps: Chalk Talk.  Big Shot: Chalk Talk and Apothecary Accents.  Punches: Label Bracket.  Accessories: Candy Dots, Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim.
 My next card features the Positively Chevron background stamp with this wonderful thank you greeting:

Colors: Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  Stamps: Chalk Talk and Positively Chevron.  Big Shot: Word Bubbles Framelits and Circle Card Thinlits.  Punches: Small Heart.  Accessories: White Baker's Twine and Red Glimmer Paper.
One of the things I love about this set is the greetings are vague enough that you could use them for mulitple occasions.  My last card could be for a wedding, birthday, graduation or any other happy occasion:
Colors: Soft Sky and Whisper White.  Stamps: Chalk Talk.  Big Shot: Chalk Talk Framelits and Needlepoint Borders Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Accessories: Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack, Soft Sky Seam Binding Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by and hopping along with us! Click Next Blog to hop in order, or previous blog to go back.  A complete list of stops follows the buttons as well.  Enjoy!

I LOVE the color combinations - especially on your first card. The slate and cantaloupe is gorgeous together!

Welcome to the Crew, so glad you could join us :)
All three of these cards are amazing! The last one reminds me of a window with snow falling outside.

Great projects Paula! Soft and subtle and bold and bright! I really love your first "grateful" card and all of it's fun layering. Nicely done.

Patti MacLeith said...

All three beautiful! I love the layers on the first one, Paula!

Yapha said...

All of these are fabulous! I love how you used the ruffled ribbon in the first card, and the bright, fun colors in the second! So glad that you are a part of these hops too!

Beautiful trio! I love the layers of labels on the first card, especially with the ruffled ribbon. The Baker's Twine on the chevron was a great touch too.

Adriana Benitez said...

Wonderful cards! The first is definitely my favorite; lovely choice of stamps, patterns and color combo. Beautiful!

Wow...all your cards are great. Love the layering and color combination on the first card.
I really like how you did your banner under the sentiment and love the red heart on the sentiment.
The Soft Sky is one of my FAVE's. Such a pretty color. I love the belly band on the face of the card. Very nicely done! Thanks so much for sharing!

Such a diverse collection of cards! But I can tell I've been spending too much time in the mountains. Your third creation with the three banners looked like snow falling on the mountains! All gorgeous!

Beautiful set of cards. I think the first is my favorite. The last reminds me of snow falling, maybe it's because I've seen so much of it lately. lol
